Oakwood luxury condo project moving ahead



A deal to bring luxury condos to Oakwood is in the books. Hills Properties finalized an agreement with Oakwood Investment Group and nearby Oakwood residents to move forward in building 84 condo units at “The Trails” in Point Oakwood.

Construction will begin in the fourth quarter of this year with a first-phase completion date about nine months later and final anticipated completion date in the third quarter of 2019.

New ‘upscale’ condos proposed near downtown Dayton, UD


The developers of the Flats at South Park project want to build about 30 new condos just down the road from the Brown Street business district .[...] The hope is to start construction on the building in the next six months, Hibner said, adding that the units likely would appeal to employees who work at the University of Dayton, Miami Valley Hospital, GE Aviation, Emerson Climate Technologies and others who want to live near but just outside of downtown.

“It kind of tests the waters of being near downtown but not in downtown,” he said.

Well THIS is big news.

Good Samaritan Hospital to close



Good Samaritan Hospital, the fourth-largest hospital in the Dayton region, will close.

Premier Health officials announced the decision Wednesday at their Dayton headquarters, dealing a blow to the city of Dayton. The move comes as Premier Health embarks on its 2020 strategic plan, a series of initiatives to position the health system's future.

Premier said Good Sam's services will stay in Dayton once it closes at the end of this year, shifting to nearby Miami Valley Hospital.

Sad to see this, but I can see why Premiere would want to concentrate and expand Miami Valley, especially as they take part in the redevelopment of the old fairgrounds site.

Northwest Dayton has some great neighborhoods and architecture; I hope another strong anchor can be found for the site.

Hopefully many/most of the positions move to Miami Valley instead of the Englewood faciltiy, otherwise that's a significant blow to the City's ability to collect income tax from those employees.

Good Samaritan Hospital: Potential for senior care facility?

The impending closure of Good Samaritan Hospital raises questions about future usage of the property, including opportunities for redevelopment.

More below:

...........

Makes sense.  When they closed St. Elizabeth years ago, it wasn't a long period when they converted it into whatever the hell it is now.  BTW, oen of the best skyline shots of Dayton is from atop Good Sam.

Also, that shot shows how deep the Miami Valley actually is (around 400ish feet).

I hope the redevelopment is done right. Between this and the ghost town that is Northwest Plaza, this section of Dayton is in big trouble.

Officials plan redevelopment of 200-acre site in Harrison Township

The area has a rich history as an entertainment district. A sizable portion of the property was once the home of an amusement park, and later transformed into a shopping plaza before it went vacant.

City leaders continue focus on downtown Centerville



Downtown Centerville, also known as the architectural preservation district, is a significant area of focus for city leaders.

The good news for the city is there are several mainstay tenants that help anchor the downtown area, including Panera Bread, City Barbecue, Graeter's Ice Cream and a few small businesses that help create a mix of local establishments and national chains.

The vacancy rate is also low, and a few new arrivals such as The Gene Group Inc., a real estate agency, and two new tattoo shops, Aisle 9 and Wise Guys, have complemented the vibrant restaurant scene.

The Funk Music Hall of Fame is now open a few days a week. Unfortunately the early reviewers have been a little underwhelmed, but hopefully it can grow into something special. Funk is my favorite genre of music, so I'm particularly excited to visit soon. What a great idea to showcase a part of Dayton culture that is authentically unique to Dayton. A yearly funk festival and a stage near the museum for traveling funk acts would be a great way to capitalize on this asset.
http://www.dayton.com/news/local/just-long-awaited-funk-museum-now-open-dayton-president-tears/60a08xpJMOnWZE5EEdyLUJ/

Cincinnati Magazine had an article last year about the efforts to make the museum a reality and a brief history of funk in Dayton and Cincinnati.

^Maybe the Museum can partner with the Levitt Pavilion being built two blocks away?

^I was thinking the same thing.  And many of the funk artists still live in the area, as opposed to, say, Los Angeles.

Art Institute, Arcade, Funk Museum, Boonshoft projects win state funds

Ohio Gov. John Kasich signed a two-year capital budget plan on Friday.

The $2.6 billion budget included money for major local projects including the downtown Arcade, Dayton Art Institute, Boonshoft Museum and the new Funk Museum.

“The General Assembly and the governor stayed true to their word and efficiently passed a strong capital budget that invests in vital economic development and community priorities in the Dayton region. The Dayton area business community, Dayton area legislators and the administration were well-coordinated in a joint effort to ensure these important investments come to fruition,” said Phil Parker, president and CEO of the Dayton Area Chamber of Commerce.
