BELMONT COUNTY, Ohio – A decade in the making, an historic revitalization plan is moving forward in St. Clairsville.
On Wednesday morning, a news conference was held inside the Clarendon Hotel on Main Street in Downtown St. Clairsville, a building developers plan to re-energize.
Those associated with the project say they've received 100 percent financing from the local Citizen’s Bank, a gesture developers say is virtually unheard of.
Since it's an historic building, state and federal historic tax credits will be used in the Clarendon's Restoration.
When it's complete, the Clarendon will hold 18 units extended stay, a restaurant below, and developers are tossing around the idea of a coffee shop or an office space to utilize all of the building.
“A lot of ups and downs with this project but we're really happy to have a developer on board, St. Clairsville Service Director Dennis Bigler said. “Now that's starting, the project will be finished by the end of the year, and we're going to have a beautiful building that we can really be proud of. They're going to put it to great economic reuse."
Steve Coon, a partner in the project, believes this is a huge addition.
“We're going to be done by the end of the year, and we'll have 18 more people living downtown market rate, where they're spending more money downtown, and of course a restaurant,” he said. “So it's going to be good for the whole community."
