Miller Lane development lands tenants

There's no slowdown in sight for new development on Miller Lane in Butler Township.

Singer Properties -- the Dayton-based developer of much of the area -- has built a 20,000-square-foot retail center that will house a half dozen new tenants, potentially including the second location for The Dublin Pub, a popular Irish bar in the Oregon District.

The second location will mimic the first: A small, cozy atmosphere; wooden accents and a large patio. The menu will have the same Irish favorites as well: blarney stones, shepherd's pie and black-and-tans.

Tieber said it's essential to keep the bar small like the first location. In Ireland, pubs are considered to have good "craic" (pronounced "crack") when they're quaint and homey, Tieber said.

"I'd rather it be undersized and busy, rather than be too large and too much," he said.

The original Dublin Pub is 3,300 square feet with a 900-square-foot patio and 128 seats. The second one may be slightly bigger. The spot at Miller Lane would be about 4,000 square feet and have a 2,000-square-foot patio, Kolodesh said.

That leaves about 2,400 square feet leftover for a final tenant, Kolodesh said.

The momentum at Miller Lane continues with help from its high profile location and a cluster of hotels and businesses in the area, Kolodesh said.

More than 100,000 cars drive by the development each day on Interstate 75, and the spot is located less than five miles from downtown Dayton and less than three miles from the Dayton International Airport. Plus, there are 1,400 hotel rooms located within walking distance from Miller Lane restaurants and shops.

In York Commons, Singer has plans for at least 30,000 square feet of retail space to crop up along York Commons Boulevard in the coming years.
