slowdown in sight for new development on Miller Lane in
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
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.
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.
