Dayton picks developer for shuttered downtown tower



City of Dayton has picked its preferred developer for a years-vacant tower.

The city has selected Coon Restoration of Louisville, Ohio, as its development partner to revive the now empty 14-story, 245,000-square-foot building in the heart of downtown Dayton once known as Paru Tower. The company, which has done restoration projects in Hamilton, Canton and Cleveland, was picked over Weyland Ventures and a third local startup developer entity after an RFP process.

Looks like they have a solid track record, and I'm glad it's a new developer for our market. (I think Weyland Ventures has enough in the pipeline in Oregon East to keep them busy.) Hope these guys can get their financing in order soon, as this would be a big project for the CBD.

City pushes ahead for downtown-to-Kettering bike corridor

The city of Dayton wants to contract with a consultant to help it land the 6.5 mile stretch of abandoned rail line it envisions for a new elevated bike trail.

The city will vote Wednesday on a $29,000 contract with Wilmette, Ill.-based consultant RMI Midwest to help it appraise the value of a 6.5 mile stretch of abandoned rail line stretching out of downtown and to the east, along U.S. Route 35, turning south along Woodman Drive until it ends in Kettering.

I truly hope this projects happens, but given the recent reporting I'm starting to have doubts this group will be able to pull it off. They've been buying building after building but can't even make the Century Bar expansion happen for a very willing tenant. I wish they had just started with the Elks building instead of getting grandiose ideas of transforming a massive chunk of downtown.

Dayton tops L.A., Denver as fastest to $5M fundraising for pavilion

The Dayton community raised the money needed to build a state-of-the-art amphitheater downtown at the fastest pace of any city that is part of a national network of music pavilions.

That’s pretty remarkable, supporters say, considering that the seven other U.S. cities with permanent Levitt music pavilions include Los Angeles and Pasadena, Calif.; Denver Colo.; and Arlington, Texas.

Yeah, this would be a big win for that part of downtown. Hopefully the anticipated Levitt Pavilion right nearby helps get the project moving. Cool historic image too; wish they hadn't torn down that building on the far left of the picture.
