‘All-inclusive’ suite of offices opens in downtown Dayton
Tenants cover multiple shared costs with a single lease payment.
The developer behind Sugar Camp business park and the Pointe Oakwood housing development in Oakwood is opening an “all-inclusive” suite of offices in downtown Dayton.
Described as Dayton’s “first homegrown all-inclusive office space,” the office floor at 301 W. First St. just opened and already has a tenant, said Bob Posner, president of Dayton Offices and a vice president at Oakwood Investment Group, who has overseen the developments in Oakwood.
The idea is to allow tenants to cover multiple shared costs with a single lease payment — in this case, leases start at $495 a month, the company said.
“We are true all inclusive,” Posner said Wednesday. “Full-time receptionist, phones, Internet, beautiful furniture, large offices, coffee, conference rooms, free parking. We don’t charge extra for anything. Those are all included.”
Posner declined to identify his first tenant, but said: “We’ve been overwhelmed with the response. We’ve been open a week.”
There are furnished and unfurnished offices, with and without windows, with a common receptionist, coffee area, conference rooms and more.
An opening celebration is planned for 5 to 9 p.m. Tuesday with live music, food trucks, drinks and tours — and party-goers dressed like characters from the 1990 movie Office Space, according to a release from the company.
The office is aimed at small businesses and is open to lawyers, administrators, entrepreneurs and anyone looking to control office costs, Posner said.
“There is so much activity in downtown Dayton,” Posner said, citing in particular Taylor Communications’ planned move of at least 500 employees to nearby 111 W. First St. “It’s exciting that all these companies and all these people are moving back.”
OIG owns and operates Dayton Offices. The company purchased the second floor of 301 W. First from Duvall & Associates.
In Pointe Oakwood off Main Street just south of the Dayton-Oakwood border, Posner said the housing development is poised for another phase, with three more townhouses for sale and about eight more lots expected to be built.
“More houses will be built there,” said Posner, who is also in charge of operations at Sugar Camp.
