EnviroContol Systems is excited to work alongside Woodard Development to again make history at 601 E. Third Street in Dayton. The aging architectural gem, once known as the J.K. McIntire Building, became The Manhattan, in September, 2019. Steady progress is being made in the historic reuse of a Dayton landmark with a goal of finishing the project by end of 2020.
During top-secret research which led to the atomic bomb and the end of World War II, the McIntire Building was a warehouse for materials, and the home of a lab to test the biological impact of radiation. Due to the top-secret nature of the Manhattan Project, many Daytonians are still unaware of the building’s history.
Joining its next-door neighbor, the Avant Garde Building, the Manhattan will become home to businesses within Dayton’s growing technology sector.
A design-build project with value-engineering, EnviroControl Systems designed and installed modern heating/cooling/indoor air quality technology including VRF technology and a DOAS unit for outdoor air. Additionally, EnviroControl Systems will design and finish individual tenant spaces to tenant requirements.
