Has anyone ever lived or known someone who has lived at the apartments at the Greene? I am moving to the Beavercreek/Fairborn area in Jan/February and I can't find ANY reviews on the apartments there. If you have lived there, did you like it? Thanks!

I used to live near there, but not in the apartments themselves. I am assuming you have taken a look at this?: Luxury Apartments in Beavercreek Ohio | Stonebridge Apartments. We live out of state now, but I did drive through there a couple of times and they looked beautiful on the outside. Here is another link to check out, not sure if they are the same ones: http://www.liveatthegreene.com/

^Yep, those are the same ones. Never lived there, but have lived in Beavercreek and Dayton for quite some time now. For the area, the rent is a little high, but they are new, there's security on sight, and reserved parking on the top deck of the rear parking garage (though I am sure you can park anywhere in the garage if space is available).

And when I mean the rent is high, its mostly from demand, as many of the apartments are full. On a side note, I wonder if the newer of the two apartment towers (the one closer to Von Maur) is cheaper for its lack of views and being closer to the highway?

Is it true that the developer of the Greene was planning a similar project a few years ago near the ballpark downtown? I've heard this.

Ballpark Village was a different developer. It was supposed to be the same kind of venue (restaurants and entertainment with a little less retail though). One reason I've heard it fell through was lackluster support from some on the Dayton City Commission. It mainly had to do with development support, how much was covered by the owner/developer and how much by the city. Projects like these take great infrastructure costs to even build, let alone operate.

Personally, IMO, that's why The Greene worked and Ballpark Village didn't. Greene County and Beavercreek took the risk on the TIF bonds and tax abatement. It has worked relatively well.

Now, I've also heard from a friend who interned in an unnamed Montgomery County Commissioner's office, that Montgomery County contests the county line location concerning The Greene. While it is stated fact (Census maps, county maps approved by Ohio, DMV, etc show this) that the line runs north south along County Line Road, which is under Kettering and Montgomery County jurisdiction, the land and parcels to its east are Beavercreek and Greene County. This unnamed official said that the real line is actually I-675. I am sure many residents in the Beavercreek plat behind K-Mart would be surprised that they actually lived in Montgomery and not Greene County.

The Greene actually had a problem with some stores thinking they paid Montgomery County sales tax (and charged accordingly) because of the water tower at Indian Ripple and County Line (next to Jiffy Lube and Wendy's). Mind you, I think at the time, the difference in tax rates was .5 percent. When Greene County came calling on those businesses, they were surprised to learn of the problem. Have to love local politicians and jurisdictions.

So, if that is true (and I trust this friend's account) that is why Montgomery County cannot get its act together, let alone the City of Dayton.

I worked for a federal government organization in 2010, and the maps we had said that The Greene would be in Greene County.
