NEW CASTLE, Pa. -- As you drive down the hill to the borough of Volant, Pa., you see one building stand out: Volant Mills. You can’t miss it. It sits at a bend in the road, a three-story white building with a blue sign proclaiming its name. It has been the center of commercial activity in Volant since it was built in the early 1800s.
Today the building, which is mostly a gift store, is one of the town’s top tourist attractions.
YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio -- The city is engaged in what its finance director characterizes as “preliminary” discussions with representatives of NYO Property Group regarding the developer’s purchase of 20 Federal Place.
NYO submitted a $1.7 million bid to acquire the city-owned building and a nearby parking lot. The developer was the sole entity to submit a proposal by the Oct. 3 deadline, even though its largest tenant, VXI Global Solutions Inc., submitted a letter stating it preferred that the city retain ownership.
YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio -- The hotel that will occupy the Stambaugh Building downtown will have the Doubletree by Hilton brand, the NYO Property Group announced Wednesday.
Conversion of the landmark building to a 125-room hotel is scheduled to begin in June and take about 16 months with the opening in late 2016, NYO Property Group LLC principal Dominic J. Marchionda said.
Since the Wick-Pollock Inn closed in 1998, no hotel has operated within Youngstown city limits.
