Dayton renovator purchases Main Street building, opening apartments and yoga studio, Studio615
The three-story property at 615 Main St. was purchased May 31 for $700,000 by Samaan Brothers LLC.
Wasfi Samaan, owner of Dayton-based GTG Renovations, was behind the purchase and is planning two different amenities within the property — an apartment lot and a one-of-a-kind yoga studio called Studio615.
The space won’t require much renovation, as it was previously a fitness studio called the Barre Code. Studio615 will make some additions to the space though, like installing a U-shaped bar inside. McCollum told me he signed a 10-year lease for the space June 2.
Studio615 will be a classic yoga studio, with a large, open room and group classes – but with a twist. The concept will serve a variety of fruit juices by day and will serve alcohol through its bar by night.
McCollum chose that specific part of Main Street, closer to Fountain Square, because he wants to have a similar upbeat feeling as the areas further into downtown. Studio615 is planning to bring in some live music, including some local jazz bands, and use their nighttime hours to transform the place into a lively bar.
As far as the apartments upstairs, Samaan isn’t sure about when it’ll start housing tenants, but he’s completed renovations on two units so far.
