Work Moves Forward on Downtown Hotel Project

Mike Colvin Fast Facts

A downtown hotel project is taking another step closer to becoming a reality. The historic former St. Paul Evangelical Lutheran Church and Parish Hall at 239 Wayne Avenue in the Oregon District is set to become a multi-use space with hotel rooms, entertainment, and retail spaces. According to the Dayton Business Journal, the city of Dayton’s Planning Commission is reviewing the project with a plan to amend the zoning map to allow construction to begin. The project received a $2M Ohio Historic Preservation Tax Credit earlier this year to add to a previously received $1.7M Federal Historic Preservation Tax Credit. The entire project is expected to cost more than $22M and is expected to create 65 permanent jobs in addition to the more than 125 jobs created during construction. Weyland Ventures says work is expected to begin in August of this year with hopes of finishing the St. Paul Hotel project by the end of 2025.
