Dayton Arcade Photos After Initial Cleanup Is Complete - Funding Closing Is Underway Part 3

Final Dayton Arcade Pictures Prior To Securing Funding

The historic Dayton Arcade is a 9 building complex that is bordered by Main Street to the East, Ludlow Street to the west, Third Street to the north, and Fourth Street to the south. Rehabilitation and revitalization are being carried out by Cross Street Partners, McCormack Baron Salazar, Model Group, City of Dayton, and Montgomery County, Ohio. The goal is to reopen the Dayton Arcade as a mixed-use property including housing, collaboration space, retail, and restaurants.

This set of photos (part 1, 2, and 3 coming this week) were taken just a few hours before all construction equipment and workers were done with pre-closing work done on the Dayton Arcade. At 5pm on 4/12/19, the Arcade was locked as part of the terms of the funding closing. Once the closing is complete this week, construction on the Dayton Arcade will be in full swing again!

The photos in the gallery below (past the links) are from three legal entries (April 12, 2019; March 12, 2019; May 2017) into this historic and iconic Dayton property. These images were shot with permission.

My goal as a Dayton photographer is to be the definitive source for Dayton Arcade photos. I photographed the Arcade prior to construction starting, and as construction progresses, I’ll be posting progress photos that I will be shooting with permission.

I believe that documenting Dayton through Dayton photography of buildings, downtown, events, and more is vital to telling the story of Dayton. As a Dayton photographer, I do my part by creating documentary style Dayton photography and sharing it with the world.
