Tiffin, Ohio — The Architectural Board of Review (ABR) on Tuesday approved a Façade Enhancement Grant for the recently purchased and rebranded Watchtower Building located at 154 S Washington St., formerly known as the Gold Bond Building.

The ABR approved a grant of $10,000 for storefront replacement for work on the Madison Street side of the building that will open a couple storefront spaces for potential new downtown business.

The property and renovation investment totals nearly $80,000. This year, the ABR approved grants for the owners of 11 buildings in Downtown Tiffin for a total investment of nearly $245,000.

Mayor Dawn Iannantuono said, “I am excited to see a downtown property restored so it can once again be used for business. Locations are limited and the City of Tiffin is happy to provide assistance for the restoration of another property.”

Since the Façade Enhancement Program’s inception in 2014, 113 projects have been approved for the restoration of Tiffin’s historic downtown properties generating $3.2 million in investment.
