A local information technology firm will move this week into a new $1.8 million facility in downtown Dayton and re-brand itself. Both changes reflect the company’s expanded capabilities and expected growth in cloud computing services, officials said.
They are in that modernist skyscraper next to the Hulman Building (AKA Liberty Bank). The building is one of three in SW Ohio designed by the late Chicago architect Harry Weese (designer of the DC Subway); the other two are the Middletown City Hall and the Formica Buidling/Mercantile Arcade in downtown Cincy.

Springfield May Get Jobs from Texas
Quote:
Navistar International Corp.’s Springfield plant could see more work and jobs here from the closure of its Garland, Texas, facility. The truck manufacturer is expected to start moving production to other plants by January. Navistar spokesman Steve Schrier said the work will either go to Springfield’s plant, which employs more than 850 people locally, or a plant in Escobedo, Mexico.

If Springfield gets any of that work, the company would likely have to hire additional workers, said Jason Barlow, president of United Auto Workers Local 402, which represents Navistar employees.

Dayton-Area Home Sales Beat Expectations
Quote:
Dayton-area home sales surged 21 percent in October from the year before, far exceeding what local realtors and industry observers expected. The jump was the largest percentage increase in sales for any month so far this year when compared to 2011.
“This was the best October that we have had since 2007, and in 2007 we had quite a few thousand more real estate agents in the field,” said Bob Miller, president of Ohio Association of Realtors. “It’s hit in the buyers’ minds that 3 to 4 percent interest rates really make their dollar go further. We have a lot of first-time buyers out there.

Bike Path Around UD is Expanding
Quote:

Beavercreek Office Building Sells For $16.4 Million
Quote:
The Beavercreek-based developer sold the new Northrop Grumman building, a 99,000-square-foot facility at 4065 Colonel Glenn Highway in Beavercreek, for $16.4 million to Griffin Capital Corp.


Bob Mills, chairman and owner of Mills Development, said that sale, along with an earlier sale of the new SAIC building, indicate how active the commercial real estate market is in Beavercreek.



Interesting note: SAIC is an acronym for "Shanghai Automotive Industry Corporation." That company emerged from obscurity in the 1980's to produce over four million vehicles a year, almost exclusively in the Far East. But in June 2012, they opened their "North American Operations Center" in Michigan. The beginning of a new trend - cars made in the People's Republic?

I would agree with this since the people I know who work there are electrical engineers not doing anything automotive.

Hi all--

Interesting - I stand corrected. There must be more than one SAIC doing business in the States, then.

I never felt that Downtown Dayton was that small. It is arguably larger than Downtown Akron, which boasts a higher population in the city core.
