Ohio Economy: Where are we Heading?Ohio -- Northeast Ohios economy continues to grow at a steady but modest clip, thanks largely to an oldfriend -- manufacturing -- but observers see a powerful new catalyst on the horizon.Major energy companies are investing millions into Ohios surprise resource --the natural gas trappeddeep in ancient shale deposits. With drill permits being acquired at accelerating rates, its only amatter of time before large-scale drilling becomes an economic stimulus, according to an analysis byTeam Northeast Ohio.The regional economic development agency reported in 2012 that job creation in Northeast Ohio grew forthe seventh consecutive quarter as the unemployment rate dropped to 8.3 percent in March, slightlybeneath the national rate.© 2012 – The Ergur Group

  • 48. How does the overall cost of a typical project like this compare with what it might cost to undertake equivalent new construction?  By putting the proper incentives in place, new construction cannot compete with the value of historic renovation.  New construction may appear at the onset to be less expensive than historic renovation because the labor costs comprise a much larger portion of the historic renovation construction budget.  New construction labor costs are typically about 50 percent of total costs, whereas the labor component of historic renovation is closer to 60 to 70 percent.  But you have to evaluate the complete financial structure, and when you do that historic renovation creates greater value.
  • 49.  The federal government provides a “Historic Renovation Tax Credit” of up to 26 percent of the total renovation costs. State of Ohio offers additional historic preservation credits of 25 percent or more. Because many of these buildings are located in areas that have suffered considerable decay and economic blight, they will often meet the requirements. For participation in the Federal New Markets Tax Credit program. The NMTC can generate additional credits equal to 39 percent of the renovation costs and are often layered on top of the historic credits. Some quick math will tell you that adds up to 90 cents plus on the dollar of public equity contribution in the form of state and federal tax credits — just for starters.
