Anchor tenants move into the Dayton Arcade, “breathing new life” into historic property

As the Dayton Arcade’s anchor tenants are moving in, soon to be joined by new residents, the arcade’s main developer “revealed plans for a new hotel in the north part of the complex,” the Dayton Daily News reports. The Dayton Innovation Hub, “a joint venture between the University of Dayton and The Entrepreneurs Center, is the anchor tenant of the nine-building complex,” according to the article. The hub “will allow hundreds of college students, faculty members and staff to work collaboratively with local small businesses, start-ups and entrepreneurs.” Other planned tenants include retail, restaurants, a visual arts organization and a local payroll company. Montgomery County Commissioner Carolyn Rice said the revitalized arcade “will be transformational for the community.” For more, read the full article.
