Benjamin & Marian Schuster Performing Arts Center

Dayton, Ohio (Dayton Performing Arts Center)

KUD successfully completed the pre-construction program management for this 500,000 square foot, $100 million performing arts center and mixed-use complex on two downtown blocks in Dayton. This project includes a 2,300-seat performing arts center, a hotel, retail, and housing united by a common atrium. KUD’s scope of services included market and feasibility analysis, programming, economic impact analysis, and financial structuring. KUD worked with public sector and private sector interests to define and fund the project. The Benjamin and Marian Schuster Performing Arts Center plays a key role in the redevelopment of Dayton’s central business and arts districts.

We consider KUD a valuable partner with us in redeveloping Downtown Dayton. KUD’s solid leadership, expertise and creative thinking will help drive this key project which is vital to Downtown Dayton’s revitalization efforts. We are fortunate to have KUD on our team.
