A holding company run by the chief executive of Scene 75 Entertainment has bought the nearby former ITT Tech school property on Stop Eight Road.
JDS Commercial Holdings LLC — of which Jonah D. Sandler is the principal — bought the former school property at 3325 Stop Eight Road for $740,000, Montgomery County property records show.
Five years ago, Sandler opened Scene 75 at 6196 Poe Ave. Since then, he has announced plans to open a third entertainment location 30 miles south of Cleveland in Brunswick, Ohio. Besides the Dayton center, the company also has a 84,000-square-foot Cincinnati-area venue in Milford.
The former school — which closed last September — is just south of Scene 75 on Poe, near the intersection of Poe and Stop Eight.
Last year, ITT Technical Institute closed all 130 of its campuses nationally in a move that put 8,000 employees out of work, in the wake of federal sanctions against the school.
A message seeking comment was left with Sandler Tuesday.
