Developments: Pythian Castle

The Pythian Castle is perhaps downtown Toledo’s most unique story and structure. Built to serve as a meeting spot for the mysterious Knights of Pythias, its distinct form first cut into the city skyline in 1890. But after a 1978 fire rendered the interior uninhabitable, this fantastic façade spent four decades waiting to rise again.

Today, thanks to the craftsmanship of experienced developer Dave Ball, with Water Street Development, the Pythian Castle is being rebuilt as a mixed-use structure where commercial and/or residential real estate will give more businesses and residents a place to call home downtown. Offering nearly 35,000-square feet and a 2021 lease date, the Pythian Castle is a can’t-miss opportunity rooted in history, grown from the ashes, and a sign of what’s to come.

Mr. Ball is also redeveloping the adjacent former Greyhound Bus Terminal. It will house the City of Toledo’s Engineering Department. Total GBA is 23,500 feet.
