 The Acclaimed Grant-Deneau Tower
Downtown Dayton’s Premier Professional Office and Residential Conversion
40 W. 4th Street, Just off I-75 23-stories 222,000 +/- SF on .68 Acres

Grant-Deneau Tower is significant at the local level under Criterion A in the area of community planning and development, as the building reflects one of the first major construction projects completed in Dayton in an effort to revitalize the downtown and to reverse significant decentralization of the city as suburban competition rapidly increased. Grant-Deneau Tower is also nominated under Criterion C for the distinct characteristics of modern New Formalism and Miesian style architecture and construction. Designed by local architects Deneau-Kleski and Associates, the nominated building is documented by local newspaper and advertisement resources as being the first modern office tower in Dayton, while also the tallest building in the city when constructed in 1969. Grant-Deneau Tower is a significant representation of early local efforts to catalyze redevelopment in the urban core of downtown Dayton by bringing modern design and amenities to the struggling city. For these reasons the nominated property demonstrates exceptional significance within the past 50 years and warrants eligibility under Criteria Consideration G, per National Register guidelines. The period of significance begins with construction of the building in 1969 and extends to 1979 when the construction of the lobby enclosure was completed.
