That is from a subscriber article on the Dayton Business Journal (I think). I'll have to look over that picture later.

Some thoughts:


Seems like a lot of potential apartment units (I know they probably won't all be built).

I see no need for a hotel. There are 2 by UD/UD Arena and another is probably going to be built at the Midtown development.

Has the BarryStaff already started building their new headquarters? I didn't even know they were moving.

The grocery store would also depend, like the hotel, on what is built at the Midtown development. Don't know if there will be a need for 2 of them.

I like the ideas for the other Mendelson building. A gym could work if there are enough people living in that area.


I see great potential here. I think this could work well with the Midtown development if done right. More retail/restaurant options at Midtown and more residentual in this area.

^Agreed, especially in the hotel. I don't see much of an issue with two strong players downtown already. Also agreed that a lot of what happens here will probably hinge on Midtown, since they are both going for the same market.

But the way I see it, Midtown is the safer development but the Webster Station stuff is more important for the region, just for the sake of piping more energy downtown. Either way, both need to happen and be done well. If we are lucky, we are on the leading edge of a new movement of people back into the city. At east we can hope...

Yep. I just think they can play off of each other well. With the new bike share program, they should have more retail/restaurants in one and more residential in the other.

^very true. And it would be awesome to see, as you suggested earlier, midtown with the stronger retail/restaurant component and Water St. with the stronger residential (and bar hopefully haha).

Brixx Ice kinda falls into the category of "bar"

There's a sign and a frame of a building going up near the Ballpark. It appears BarryStaff will be at least one of the tenants there.
