Business, housing targeted for historic site in downtown Miamisburg

Miamisburg is agreeing on a deal to bring more downtown businesses and housing as part of a $1.4 million project officials say is the largest public/private redevelopment partnership for the city in more than 10 years.

Plans to restore historic Main Street buildings are part of the city’s agreement with two firms that local officials say would bring more than 12,000 square foot of retail and residential space to the heart of downtown.

The city will provide $300,000 in financial assistance to the project spearheaded by Simplify Real Estate and Moda4 Design, records show.
