Chris Riegel, Stratacache founder and chief executive, told the Dayton Daily News last week that his real estate acquisition arm bought downtown Dayton’s tallest building for $13 million.

The building will become Stratacache’s new headquarters over the next two years or so, Riegel said. Today, the company is based at 2 Emmett St.

Stratacache makes digital signs and monitors for restaurant and retail, as well other virtual and augmented reality software for retail.

The 486,000-square-foot building’s previous owner, Albert Macanian, president of Plainview, N.Y.-based Dunkirk Realty, bought the property in May 2012 for $6.4 million through Tower Partners LLC.
