Officials say rehab of the Carlisle would not be financially viable with the credits.
The Chesler Group has been selected to get $1.4 million in Ohio Historic Preservation Tax Credits to rehabilitate the historic Carlisle Building in downtown Chillicothe. According to officials with the Chesler Group, the Carlisle will be redeveloped in partnership with the Adena Health System and the Chillicothe-Ross Community Foundation, and the building will be primarily used to house Adena's medical residents.
Renovation is expected to start in the spring or summer of 2013.
Officials say it's an $8-million project to restore the structure, which was partially destroyed by arson in 2003.
