OVERVIEW Cross Street Partners (CSP), Model Group, and McCormack Baron Salazar (MBS) will develop the historic Dayton Arcade, a collection of nine buildings totaling over 330,000 SF in the heart of downtown Dayton’s central business district. The full development plan will recast the Arcade in much the same way it was initially developed in the first decade of the 20th century—with a mix of retail, offices, public space and housing. The first phase of the project, the South Arcade, will consist of an innovation center with a higher education partner in addition to a 126-unit residential LIHTC and market rate development for artists and creative entrepreneurs. The second phase the Third Street Arcade, will include a culinary and kitchen incubator program, complimentary retail and restaurant space available for incubator participants, creative co-working space and affordable market rate micro-loft apartment living. The Dayton Arcade was a widely-celebrated achievement after its completion in the first decade of the 20th century; the structure is highlighted by a 90-foot diameter glass rotunda that many consider the most spectacular piece of architectural history in the Dayton region. But, as downtown Dayton declined in the 1970’s and 1980’s, so did the Arcade. The main building went into bankruptcy in the mid-1980’s, and was last occupied in 1990. Today, the stunning Rotunda is a diamond in the rough, hidden behind vacant store façades, and unknown to an entire generation of passersby. The downtown itself is also in a state of disrepair, with numerous vacant buildings, and an overabundance
of half-empty parking garages and surface lots. In the past five years; however, the City’s population decline has halted, and there is significant renewed interest in living, working and visiting downtown. The Arcade is part of a larger plan by the City of Dayton to bring residents, jobs, and visitors back to the downtown. Across the street from the Arcade is the future site of a new Levitt Pavilion—an outdoor live music venue that will offer 50 free concerts each year. The Levitt is at the center of a nineblock redevelopment strategy led by the City that builds on existing underutilized assets to build a premier downtown urban neighborhood centered around a central park. The restoration of the Arcade is now the highest priority for the City of Dayton, and it has its greatest potential, more so now than ever before, to be a center for innovation and force for economic development in downtown Dayton.


The Dayton Arcade will be an economic engine — fueled by artistic and innovative activities

The Dayton Arcade is located in the heart of Dayton’s central business district, and it is part of a larger plan by the City of Dayton to bring residents, jobs, and visitors back to the downtown. Across the street from the Arcade is the future site of a new Levitt Pavilion—an outdoor live music venue that will offer 50 free concerts each year. The Levitt is at the center of a nine-block redevelopment strategy—The NINE—led by the City that builds on existing underutilized assets to build a premier downtown urban neighborhood centered around a central park. The restoration of the Arcade is now the highest development priority for the City of Dayton, and it has its greatest potential, more so now than ever before, to be a center for innovation and force for economic development in downtown Dayton.


PAST: HISTORY The Dayton Arcade is a collection of five buildings located in Dayton, Ohio. The Historic Arcade is an historical, architecturally elegant complex located in the heart of Dayton's central business district. Built between 1902 and 1904, it consists of five interconnecting buildings topped by a glassdomed rotunda, 70 feet high and 90 feet in diameter, below which two balconied upper floors circle the central enclave. The Arcade had the latest innovations, including elevators, a power plant and a cold storage plant.

PAST: HISTORY

The most notable building, which fronts on Third Street, is of Flemish design and is said to be patterned after a guild hall in Amsterdam, the Netherlands. It looks like typical old Dutch architecture. The Fourth Street and Ludlow Street facades are done in Italian Renaissance Revival with the Commercial Building anchoring the corner of the lot. The most interesting architectural feature is the great dome. The classic detailing usually found in such rotundas was replaced by detailing representative of Ohio. The cornucopias are filled with fruits and vegetables from Ohio. There are festoons of oak leaves with acorns, ram heads and garlands of grain. At each framing member of the dome are colorful turkeys. Originally the main spaces were utilized for a major food market with retail, offices, and housing located on the upper floors. Through the first four decades of Twentieth Century, this super supermarket and retail center was one of


Downtown Dayton's prime attractions and destinations. Here, one shopped for the unusual in fruit and vegetables, seafood, baked goods, food specialties, meats and meat specialties, fresh-cut flowers and assorted luxury items available in or out of season. In 1974, the Arcade was placed on the National Register of Historical Places. In the late 1970's, investors began planning and implementing a major restoration of the Arcade. In May 1980, the newly refurbished Arcade was reopened as a retail shopping and food center. In its new guise as Arcade Square, the center offered a lively collection of boutique stores, restaurants, stores offering staples, kitchen apparel, books, and luggage . The Dayton Philharmonic, among other offerings, performed to holiday crowds from the vast floor below the Arcade rotunda. Given the general decline of retail activity and volume within the central business district, financial success gradually eluded Arcade Square and it was closed to the public in 1990. Its final tenants still included its famous Arcade Seafood store and the last traditional dime store to operate in Downtown Dayton McCrory's -- both of which remained open for a time after the closure of the Arcade Square public spaces themselves.

PRESENT: EXISTING CONDITIONS


The Dayton Arcade was a widely-celebrated achievement after its completion in the first decade of the 20th century; the structure is highlighted by a 90-foot diameter glass rotunda that many consider the most spectacular piece of architectural history in the Dayton region. But, as downtown Dayton declined in the 1970’s and 1980’s, so did the Arcade. The main building went into bankruptcy in the mid-1980’s, and was last occupied in 1990. The intervening 25 years that it has sat vacant, unmaintained, and unheated have resulted in significant damage to the structure. Today, the stunning Rotunda is a diamond in the rough, hidden behind vacant store facades, and unknown to an entire generation of passersby. The downtown itself is also in a state of disrepair, with numerous vacant buildings, and an overabundance of half-empty parking garages and surface lots. In the past five years; however, the City’s population decline has halted, and there are signs of a renewed interest in living, working and visiting downtown. The Arcade is part of a larger plan by the City of Dayton to bring residents, jobs, and visitors back to the downtown. Across the street from the Arcade is the future site of a new Levitt Pavilion—an outdoor live music venue that will offer 50 free concerts each year. The Levitt is at the center of a nine-block redevelopment strategy led by the City that builds on existing underutilized assets to build a premier downtown urban neighborhood centered around a central park. The restoration of the Arcade is now the highest priority for the City of Dayton, and it has its greatest potential, more so now than ever before, to be a center for innovation and force for economic development in downtown Dayton.


FUTURE: USE PLAN The historic rehabilitation project will transform the stately Rotunda into a unique event space flanked by arts and innovation uses such as galleries, studios, makerspaces, as well as a business incubator/coworking space on the upper floors opening out onto the Rotunda atrium. An entire city block will be enlivened by a variety of first floor retail and restaurants with outdoor seating. Along with artist-focused LIHTC housing occupying the upper floors of several buildings, the Arcade will be a hub of an emerging arts and innovation district in downtown Dayton.The redevelopment will be completed in 2 primary phases. The structuring of the Arcade project allows the development team to maintain an orderly absorption of new uses and the ability to activate spaces as the project progresses.

Phase I: • Arts o Art Galleries, classrooms, studios, and artist makerspaces (15,000 – 40,000 SF): Cultivating a cluster of arts related uses, the Arcade will provide the community with a unique space for the creative community. o Affordable Creative Housing – 126 units (24 units market rate): Focusing on the growing local artist community and 1,400 SF of arts-related support space. • Innovation Space (82,000 SF): The project will revitalize the stately Rotunda and additional spaces into a coworking, shared office, and incubation space, creating a lively environment of entrepreneurs, startups, and creative talent. • Restaurants and Retail (15,000-20,000): Modeled on the 3cdc Over-the-Rhine retail strategy, the Arcade will house a diverse cluster of restaurants and retail which may include a custom craft brewery, a fresh market and deli, and a local coffee shop. • Public Event Space: The Rotunda will be resurrected as an active public event space and tourist destination, available for festivals, pop-up retail, performances, talks, product launches, etc. A new theater in the round will be created on the lower level under the Rotunda.

FUTURE: USE PLAN

Phase II • Kitchen Incubator and fresh food market (10,000 SF): The creation of a kitchen incubator will feature commercial grade equipment, storage, and preparation areas. It will be designed for maximum flexibility for local food startups to economically scale their businesses. • Retail and Restaurant Space (5,000 – 8,000 SF): The existing historic retail space in the 3rd Street Arcade will be reactivated to support the kitchen incubator businesses as well as other local serving restaurants and retail. • Additional Public Event Space (4,000 – 6,000 SF): The North Arcade will be restored to its former glory and connected to the revitalized Rotunda, creating a one of a kind destination spanning an entire city block. • Residential (28,590SF): As part of the Third Street Arcade project, 32 apartment units will occupy the entire third, fourth, and fifth floors of Third Street Arcade, including the Gibbons Annex.

FUTURE: USE PLANS

Innovation Hub Creative working spaces woven into an active environment to cluster and connect start-ups and new ventures. The Arcade will create a “digital onramp” into the tech and entrepreneurship world for Dayton’s creative community by connecting them with university anchors and

FUTURE: USE PLANS

educational resources.


College & University Partnerships University institutions are essential partners in developing the thriving innovation districts. Dayton is endowed with several educational institution partners including University of Dayton, the anchor tenant for the Arcade development. UD will be partnering with The Entrepreneurs Center (TEC) to provide technical assistance and other services for entrepreneurs, creatives, makers, and the food economy. Creating a vibrant downtown that recent graduates from the local colleges perceive as attractive is critical to Downtown Dayton’s revitalization. The Arcade project will reposition Downtown Dayton as an attractive place for creatives and entrepreneurs to live and work. The affordable artist housing component will be particularly attractive to recent graduates as they start their post-grad life in Dayton.

Jobs and Entrepreneurship Construction for Phase 1 and Phase 2 will create an estimated 277 temporary construction jobs due to the nature of the detailed historic work. There will also be a significant permanent job creation component for the project. The office, retail, co-working/incubation, restaurant, production, culinary incubator, and event space in the two phases will support an estimated 1,456 direct jobs and 2,184 indirect jobs. This job creation impact is enhanced by the co-working and incubator space, which have a record of promoting rapid expansion and job growth at its member companies. These innovative facilities have become increasingly popular elements of the regional growth infrastructure, and are viewed as playing a key role in the scaling-up of growth oriented entrepreneurial ventures.


FUTURE: USE PLANS

Public Event & Art Space Working closely with the local artist community, The Rotunda and Third Street will be resurrected into active arts and event spaces, art galleries,

FUTURE: USE PLANS

workshops, and a theatre in the round.


Restoration of a Cultural Landmark Many Dayton-area residents have fond memories of visiting the Arcade with their families as children, and such a public space that attracts a diverse cross-section of the community is currently lacking. After remaining closed for over two decades, the re-opening of the Arcade will signify the opening of a new chapter of civic life downtown. The Rotunda is envisioned as a new third space for community interaction and engagement through the arts, food and entrepreneurship. The lower level theater space will be an amenity for tenants and available to host outside events. Programming at the Arcade will be funded through a small property assessment that is projected to reach $250,000 per year.

K-12 Collaboration The synergy of the Arcade’s tenancy will increase school collaborations between Dayton Public Schools, arts organizations, tech startups, area community colleges and universities – each with specific program collaborations that offer experiences which connect regular course work or entrepreneurial initiatives with intensive workforce or specific training, residencies, or internships. Arts partners such as Dayton Visual Arts Center (DVAC) look to expand both their K-12 gallery and student artists on citywide mural projects in addition to Dayton STEM School, Stivers, and DECA participation in special exhibitions and artist workshops. DVAC would also like to forge new partnerships with YWCA Girls Inc. and Five Rivers MetroParks on various afterschool activities.


FUTURE: USE PLANS

Kitchen Incubator & Market Shared kitchen business incubator, culinary education and training, restaurant incubator, and a

FUTURE: USE PLANS

food market


Increased Food Access The Arcade will work with several partners to provide Dayton residents with greater access to fresh food as well as programming for greater awareness of health and nutrition. This will include a large public market featuring locally sourced fresh produce and the support of a regular farmers market. In addition, the Arcade will be the site of culinary workforce development opportunities and a large shared use kitchen, supporting the local food economy.

Shared Use Kitchen The innovative space will provide a place to learn, train, experiment with, and share all aspects of food preparation and service, including introductory skills and certifications required to pursue careers in food service. The Arcade also plans to provide health and nutrition classes, food preparation demonstrations, and small business coaching for local families and food entrepreneurs.

Kitchen Incubator & Accelerator The Arcade will feature a 10,000 square foot kitchen incubator and accelerator facility. Members will gain either part time or full time access to food preparation spaces, dry and cold storage, and classrooms with full kitchens visible from both the street and the Rotunda. The Incubator program would include entry level training/coaching in production and equipment use, recipe development, and guidance to certifications. Participants in the accelerator would have limited business support as well as the opportunity to rent street facing storefront space for regular intervals in order to establish self-sustaining businesses.


FUTURE: USE PLANS

Residential Vibrant, contemporary, and affordable units built for artists and low income residents that will complement the original architectural features.

The Arcade is bringing back its original affordable housing units through the LIHTC artist program, featuring 120 affordable units for artists and low income residents that will be integrated into the Arcade’s neighborhood.

FUTURE: USE PLANS

Catalytic Impact The rehabilitation of the Arcade will represent a critical turning point for downtown Dayton. The entire Arcade complex, including the Rotunda space, occupies over 330,000 SF on a large downtown block. The Rotunda is at the center of the block, and by creating a new center of 24/7 activity and amenities for residents and office users, the project will spur additional redevelopment on the Arcade’s block and in the surrounding area. The revival of this downtown area will benefit the low income community through job creation, support for local businesses, and the expansion of the affordable housing stock.


Restaurants & Retail Restaurants and food will create the retail foundation, complemented by diverse specialty shops.

Center for Neighborhood Innnovation The Arcade will support the city’s first Center for Neighborhood Innovation (CNI). The CNI will be a community -centric innovation center bringing together social entrepreneurs, non-profits, funders, and researchers committed to resolving the profound issues facing our most distressed neighborhoods. The CNI will work hand-in-hand with the Dayton community to better understand the specific challenges it’s facing, and then work together to develop innovative solutions in real time.

Community Fund Tenants in the Arcade will contribute $0.25 per square foot annually towards a community fund that will provide grants for priority community initiatives. The fund would be administered by a committee of representatives from the community and the project.
