Yep. They'd better build something there.

FYI to everyone out there - the reason why Student Suites isn't presently being built is because of a bizarre "deed restriction". Again, something that should have been settled way in advance.

Article with quotes on specific restriction:

Dayton spends $215K more on Student Suites | Dayton, OH news | www.whio.com

Quote:
The city wants to transfer the deed restriction to another downtown property, but HUD lost its authority to transfer deed restrictions when the federal government shut down last year, he said. He said the Student Suites project was delayed because the developer could not obtain financing for it because of the deed restriction.

The Student Suites developer is splitting the project into two phases, and the first phase will be built at Wilkinson and Fourth streets, and the second phase will occur after the deed restriction is transferred.
Not sure what's up with that first phase though.

What is the procedure for "transferring" a deed restriction. I was under the impression that a deed restriction followed the title to the property. I assumed it could be invalidated by the courts, but didn't know it could be "transferred", which is implying that it can be moved to a different property.

Right now, social media is waging a campaign against the idea, and there will be a vocal group against the idea at the city commission meeting Tuesday night:

Channel 7 actually covered it Tuesday, maybe check their site?

Disappointed:

Demolition begins on Crowell-Collier | Springfield, OH News | www.daytondailynews.com

It would have been a great building to re-use. Condos, Apartments, office, creative space..... all could have worked.
Instead another grassy field in downtown Springfield.
Why?

I disagree completely. It's been vacant for 50+ years and an eyesore since most people in the town have been alive. People in Springfield have a very defeatist attitude and Crowell-Collier is the symbol of the town's depression. Unfortunately, only about 30% of the block will actually be demolished, and it will probably take years for the rest to come down. It's much too large to make habitable again, and no one could come up with the funding to do so even if the attempt was made.

There's only one "grassy field" downtown, and it's currently being used for food trucks during the warmer months. CC stands right in the middle of downtown's development. On one side you have the new hospital and new skating rink, and the other has downtown's core which is slowly bringing back businesses. But right in the middle you have CC sticking out like a sore thumb.
