Coon Restoration announced plans to make its mark in Dayton last June by transforming a vacant downtown office tower into a facility for housing and other uses, this news organization reported. The 14-story Third National Bank Building could include market-rate housing, a mix of commercial spaces and a boutique hotel once it is redeveloped.
In its proposal to the city, Coon Restoration said it could build two-story residential units as well as “micro-units” in the tower to accommodate its unusual floor configurations.
