Downtown Dayton?s Water Street adds more apartment units, groundbreaking set - Dayton Business Journal

The number of apartments at the development has gone up to 219! It looks like the development will be more dense too, with a fourth story added to the apartment buildings. Can't wait to see it when it's done!
I'm hoping that when this is done, the dog park across the pedestrian bridge will get fancied up. I've heard scuttlebutt that the Water Street Development has the option of buying land on the Deeds Park side.

^I think you are correct... As far as I know they do have options on most of the Deeds Park land. They are also billing this as "Phase 1" on their web site:

Water Street District, Dayton | Crawford Hoying

Also here is an updated rendering:

If they redevelop the old baseball field, that would be an awesome walk from downtown all the way to Triangle or even Wegerzyn.

This could be REALLY NICE if they do it right. Develop some of the land on the other side of the river and then fix up/maintain the rest of the park.

^Interesting case. Never realized River Corridor Dr. was going to be renamed to Water St. for this project, but it does seem like a good idea.

I'm betting the big bucks behind the city + Crawford Hoying will make sure this case is a non-issue. I would normally be more sympathetic for the business, but I don't see how the changes to the road will affect them, honestly. If anything, the development and improvements should dramatically increase their property value. But ot each their own, I guess...

That is the point. I understand defending what is yours, but this only helps you. Even if it doesn't, you are only making yourself look bad by standing in the way of something that is good for the city.

I could understand not liking it if the development wasn't of good quality, but this is. This can only help other businesses around it.

Dayton was short sighted in 1996 by doing this. They never thought the land would develop and it's come back to bite them.

Dayton Office Properties knows it's property value is going to go up with this development. They also know Crawford Hoying and or the City is going to pay to make this go away.

I don't disagree, but this makes them look bad. This just seems like something that could have been taken care of privately.
