The historic Carlisle Building in downtown Chillicothe is receiving a $1.4 million tax credit for the building's renovation.

The Ohio Development Services Agency Thursday awarded nearly $36 million in Ohio Historic Preservation Tax Credits to rehabilitate 45 historic Ohio Buildings.

The Carlisle Building was damaged after a fire in 2003.

Adena Health Systems and the Chesler Group have partnered to rehabilitate the 35,000-square-foot structure.

The cost of the project is put at more than $6.5 million.

Once renovated, the building will house a retail pharmacy, office space, rooming for medical students and staff.

The Development Services Agency says these efforts are expected to create more than 90 local jobs.
