The state said the group failed to provide documentation showing it made progress to secure and close on financing for the proposed renovation of the building.
Last week, David Roos with Centre City Partners told this newspaper that he recently spoke with the state and “we have it worked out.”
But the state gave the project multiple extensions to submit proof of ownership and evidence that financing was lined up for the proposed rehab work.
Roos did not immediately comment when contacted by this newspaper.
The $46 million rehab proposal was awarded $5 million in state historic tax credits in December 2016, beating out a request from the Dayton Arcade for state tax credits.
The loss of credits would be another blow to a building that has been targeted for redevelopment for years. The previous owner of the building won $2.8 million in state historic tax credits in December 2013, but the funding was returned to the state after the project never got off the ground.
