City of Sidney - Ohio Building

The City of Sidney owns a 100-year-old uninhabited five story building known as the Ohio Building. The 56,000 SF wood framed structure is in relatively good condition based on the city provided structural report completed in November of 2020.

The city invested in building improvements (including a new roof in 2020 and repairs to fill in concrete cavities that existed between the underground/basement level and the adjacent sidewalks) and wanted to market the building to potential developers for new retail and residential usage.

The city requested architectural assistance from JDI to complete a feasibility study and generate a report including one to three renderings which will be used to better market the building. Report including at a minimum narratives, plans, and renderings. Exact content and format of report to be discussed and determined at the project kickoff meeting.
