Jim Jackson’s latest off-the-court move could help transform a sleepy Downtown block into a place where people would sleep in style.
The former Ohio State University basketball star is looking into developing a boutique hotel at the northwest corner of Gay and High streets. His Toledo development company is trying to make the numbers work for a four-story, 150-room property on what is a parking lot.
Gay Street has seen several changes, including new restaurants, the newly opened Residence Inn inside the former Buckeye Building, a switch to two-way traffic, and construction by Edwards Cos. of a new residential neighborhood east of 4th Street.
