One of the largest downtown Dayton projects in decades has a new developer and a new vision. Columbus-based Windsor Companies, a residential and commercial contractor, has taken the reins of the Fire Blocks District: a 10-acre, six-building complex bounded by Second and Fourth streets and Jefferson and St. Clair streets.
A successful Fire Blocks project would create jobs, new residential and office space and breathe more life into the renaissance underway in downtown Dayton.
Windsor Companies — which has taken over for previous developer, The Ellway Group — is starting immediately on its vision for the historic redevelopment.
“Windsor is wicked good at taking historical buildings and turning them into innovative, sexy spaces,” said Eric VanZwieten, head of marketing and PR.
