(Plain Press, January 2018) The Ohio Development Services Agency announced on December 19th that the Dorn School of Expression Building project at 7306 Detroit Avenue was awarded $249,999 in Ohio Historic Preservation Tax Credits by the Ohio Development Services Agency. The total cost of the rehabilitation project is expected to be $1,814,324.
The Ohio Development Services Agency says the Dorn School of Expression Building was “built in 1913 and once housed residential units on the upper floor, and a retail space and a fine and performing arts school on the main floor. Though most of the interior historic details have been lost over time, the exterior retains arched window openings and dormers. After the rehabilitation project is completed, there will be four apartments and two retail spaces in the building.”
