>> Dayton Arcade deal is done. Here’s what’s coming
Prior to the financial closing on the project, demolition of the 1979-1980 renovation was carried out around the rotunda along with lead paint abatement, environmental remediation plus restoration of the plaster turkeys and cornucopia lining the top of the rotunda by local artist John Landsiedel.
John's grandfather, Byron Landsiedel created the turkeys during the original construction of the arcade between 1902-1904.
