Dayton Arcade Renovation Steps Forward With Purchase Of Kuhns Building

The downtown Kuhns building is the only historic Arcade complex property still operating as a commercial office venue.

The last building in the historic Dayton Arcade complex has been purchased by Dayton Arcade Partners. The arm of real-estate company Cross Street Partners has acquired the Kuhns building on Main Street for $1,283,586.

The Kuhns building is the only historic Arcade property in the complex that still operates as a commercial office venue. The late-nineteenth century rustic red structure was renovated in 2007.

Owners Bob and Nancy Shiffler, with Kuhns 1883, and Dayton Arcade Partners are expected to close on the sale of the building next week.

Now, with all nine buildings in the Arcade complex owned by Dayton Arcade Partners, the planned redevelopment of the site moves closer to becoming a reality. The development group purchased several other Arcade buildings on the same block last November.

Once renovations are complete, the new overall Dayton Arcade redevelopment project will house both commercial and residential units.

The more than 330,000-square-foot project is expected to be complete by summer of 2020.
