Behind Downtown Bellefontaine’s historic facades, a wave of renovation and revitalization of the central business district is in full swing. New technology could mean even greater opportunities for the most historical area of the city.
Jason Duff, owner and developer of several downtown properties, has signed a strategic alliance with CT Communications of Urbana to install a fiber optic communications infrastructure into several downtown properties, nearly 40,000 square feet of developable space including upper floors that are currently unutilized.
Duff said, “After meeting with Greg Garrett and his team at CT Communications we felt that adding this communication infrastructure made a lot of sense.”
Listen to Duff reflect on the new infrastructure.
“Downtown Bellefontaine has the potential to be a magnet for creative talent and economic development, and now it is on the path of becoming one of most wired downtowns in West Central Ohio,” said Logan County Area Chamber of Commerce President Paul Benedetti.
When asked about the benefits of running Fiber Optic Cable throughout downtown, CT’s Greg Garrett, Director of Sales, stated, “Consider the notion of bandwidth, which is currently like a garden hose that will soon become a fire hydrant. The downtown is much better positioned to attract a host of new industries and development, including technology companies.”
CT Communications provides the following services to Bellefontaine, West Liberty, Urbana, and Champaign County: CTTV, HDTV cable television, WiFi, High-Speed Internet, phone and much more. The new Main Street Marketplace, formerly known as Centre City Mall, is undergoing a major renovation. Crews are wiring each unit with a phone and internet connection offering prospective tenants a “turn-key” unit.
