DAYTON, Ohio (WKEF/WRGT) – The University of Dayton and The Entrepreneurs Center is making a long-term commitment to the Dayton Arcade.
In the heart of downtown Dayton stands the Dayton Arcade, the 114- year-old collection of historic buildings that have been vacant for nearly 30 years. After decades of peaks and valleys, the Arcade’s two- phased restoration efforts are officially moving forward.
In the time of COVID-19, new or expanded patios and outdoor seating might help save bars and the restaurant industry, and Mudlick Tap House is showing how it can be done in Dayton.
Despite uncertainty surrounding the Covid-19 pandemic, developers behind the Dayton Arcade are working to ensure the project’s residential component and anchor tenant are in place by the end of 2020.
Developers behind the Dayton Arcade project have unveiled new renderings and an inside look into the progress being made on the housing portion of the massive redevelopment effort.
The Virtual Downtown Dayton Housing tour is at noon Saturday, and one of the 14 featured properties will be the first new affordable housing developed downtown in the past 20 years.
As the demand for re-opening the economy takes hold, we must now think about how this will play out on the ground, particularly in those places — our downtowns and central business districts — that form the cores of our cities and metropolitan areas.
Some of downtown Dayton’s largest projects will continue despite the ongoing pandemic. Projects, like the Dayton Arcade, are still full speed ahead.
