Everything TCW seeks to accomplish is done with partnerships and the community in mind and that is certainly the case of our next project. Last week, the first step of many was completed when the City of Troy Downtown Building & Repair Fund (DBRF) Loan Committee approved an unprecedented $850,000 forgiveable loan to TCW to rehabilitate the exterior and three floors of the historic Coleman-Saidleman Building. The building, located at 1-3 E. Main Street has been a fixture on the square since its construction in 1855 and has served as a site for civil war soldiers to a well-known shoe store.
TCW’s desire in purchasing this building is to retain its historic value and bring the building up to modern standards. It will be a long process and involves working closely with the City of Troy, the Ohio Historic Preservation Office, and many, many more. The next step will be for Troy’s city council to approve the loan as recommended by the DBRF loan committee. To see the article on this project in Sunday’s Troy Daily News click here
