Chesler Receives $1.4 Million in Round 9 of The Ohio Historic Preservation Tax Credits
The Chesler Group, Inc. is selected to receive $1.4 million in Ohio Historic Preservation Tax Credits from the Ohio Department Services Agency ( known formerly as Ohio Department of Development ) for the complete interior and exterior rehabilitation of the historic Carlisle Block Building in Downtown Chillicothe, Ohio. This is the fourth award for The Chesler Group, Inc. all in different Ohio counties: Geauga, Summit and Trumbull and now, Ross County.
The $8 million renovation of The Carlisle will restore the circa 1885 Romanesque four-story condemned building which was partially destroyed by arson in 2003. Without the Ohio Historic Preservation Tax Credits, the rehabilitation of The Carlisle Block Building would not be possible. Restoration of The Carlisle will create a “mini-stimulus” for the region and will change the fabric of Downtown Chillicothe by restoring the Crown Jewel of its Historic Business District.
The Carlisle will be redeveloped in partnership with the Adena Health System and the Chillicothe-Ross Community Foundation. The building will be primarily used to house Adena’s medical residents.
The Chesler Group, Inc., the 2012 winner of the National Trust for Historic Preservation Award, for it’s ASM project, continues to redevelop projects across the state and nationwide.
The Chesler Group, Inc. is anticipating renovation of the Carlisle to begin in Spring/Summer 2013.
