City of Dayton staff will ask Dayton City Commission to approve an ordinance allowing the sale of the Spectrum Brands property near Dayton International Airport to a developer for more than $1.3 million.

A draft ordinance has been prepared for Wednesday’s commission meeting to approve the conveyance of real estate at 2800 Concorde Drive in Dayton to NP (North Point) Dayton Building I, LLC.

Kansas City-based North Point spearheaded the building of the $33 million, 570,000-square-foot distribution hub and research center for Spectrum Brands’s Global Auto Care division, which controls several auto-related brands, including Armor All, STP, A/C Pro and Tuff Stuff.

The building north of U.S. 40 has a Concorde Drive address near Dayton International Airport. It began operations this January and is expected to employ 350 people in time.

Recently, Ken Burns, vice president operations for Spectrum Brands, said the site has 187 permanent employees, with the number of temporary workers fluctuating from about 125 to 200.

A price on the draft ordinance seeking the conveyance is $1,303,627.99.

Last July, the commission approved a ground lease, real estate purchase option and contract with NP Dayton Building I for construction of the Spectrum property.

Last week, Terrence Slaybaugh, director of Dayton’s Aviation Department, sent City Manager Shelley Dickstein a memo requesting that the sale of the property be put on the commission’s May 3 agenda.
