CANTON, Ohio (News Talk 1480 WHBC) – A Pittsburgh-area developer of distressed downtown buildings is behind an effort to redevelop the historic George D Harter Bank building in downtown Canton.
The Repository says the building on Central Plaza North was sold to D and D Realty Group last July.
They are taking advantage of a $1.4 million tax credit from the state.
Plans are for 30 market-rate apartment units on the upper floors, with a food and small business market in the three-story-high lobby.
It’s a $7.5 million project.
The Historic Preservation Tax Credit was one of 38 recently announced by the state.
Work is set to begin soon.
