Under the name of Grayscale Cincinnati, the duo is partnering with building owner Historic Limited Liability Company to turn the Jackson Brewery building at 208 Mohawk Street into a performing arts complex.
The pair has started the design of all of the utilities, systems, and interior pieces of the property and has hired Childress & Cunningham, Inc. to assist with the permitting and construction management.
Grayscale Cincinnati plans to launch a major fundraising campaign within the next few weeks. Major construction is tentatively scheduled to begin this summer, with completion by next spring.
Following Prohibition, the brewery became the property of the Squibb-Pattison Breweries, Inc. In 1934, financial hardship forced the company to sell the operation to a group of Detroit investors, and a reincorporated Jackson Brewing Company operated at the site until 1942.
