The Dayton Board of Education is scheduled to consider a proposed tax abatement for the company developing the Barclay building downtown into a new hotel. 

The Barclay building, at 137 N. Main St., was Miller-Valentine Group’s headquarters. The property was sold last year to First Barclay LLC, which is a joint venture of Columbus-based Lawyers Development Corporation and Rosemont, Ill.-based First Hospitality.

The new owner “intends to remodel and rehabilitate an existing ten-story 60,000+/- SF (square foot) building resulting in the activation of 100 +/- hotel rooms with lobby/registration area, retail space, fitness center, meeting room and a full-service restaurant and bar (the ‘project’) to be located within the school district,” according to school district documents.

The owner of the property is First Barclay LLC, whose street address corresponds with First Hospitality, which is based in Rosemont Ill. As of April, the company’s property portfolio included more than 40 hotels offering more than 6,700 rooms, representing 14 brands.

A message seeking comment was sent to a representative of First Hospitality Monday.
