They also recently purchased the old Elementary School on Wyoming. May have plans to develop that area soon as well

Did DCS close that school down recently?  I thought there were still students there when I was in school (as recently as mid-2000s).

Anything will be a nice addition to Brown Street, but the external design of the townhomes looks a little boring.  Almost like the Lawnview Apartments design.
I agree about the design, but anything will look better than a car dealership in the middle of campus.

Ive heard the old elementary school will be partially torn down for a re-alignment of Wyoming around MVH, to eliminate that dog-leg betw main and brown.

And, yeah, more sucktastic architecture from UD.  Too bad because they had a great concept for saving the "student ghetto" as a mx of infill and restoration of older houses, plus that neat Art Street gallery/studio space in the middle.

Instead they go "corporate/suburban".   Bleh.  There WAS a good opportunity, but as always in Dayton, the cheap and banal and predictable is the default ethos.

UD starts on $30M campus renovations



The University of Dayton this summer has nearly $30 million worth of construction projects in the pipeline, including an $8 million jumpstart to a planned $20 million renovation of its sciences building.

Construction on the university Science Center is slated for the next two summers. The Science Center building — which houses courses within the college of arts and sciences — was built as two separate structures in the late 1950s and early 1960s and later joined in 2003. The old sections will receive new windows, ceilings, lights and air conditioning.

I could have sworn that they renovated the science building recently, but maybe I am actually just thinking of that connector that was created in 2003.  Wow that doesn't seem that long ago, but according to my math that's nine years...time is flying!

UD to launch $11M housing project

The school is kicking off a project for a four-story townhouse-style housing development at 301 Lowes St. in its southern student neighborhood. The 96-bed townhouse will feature two-bedroom and four-bedroom apartments with appliances, and will be similar to UD's Caldwell Street apartments.

UD development to continue despite parking worries

Dayton plan board approved plans for new University of Dayton housing developments, but its concern for how students are parking remains.

Plan board approved an updated record plan for UD's campus and its surrounding neighborhoods, bolstered by a pair of new housing construction projects, with the caveat that the school make a "good faith" effort to develop more parking. This as five members of the board talked through concerns with a number of UD officials at their Tuesday meeting.

I can just picture a parking garage in the heart of campus or the Ghetto. Blech. I have no idea what a better solution would look like, though.

There are two locations that make sense for a parking garage in my opinion. The Kettering Labs lot and the lot off Stewart behind the business building could both accommodate a parking garage without too much trouble.

UD nears completion of athletics complex



The University of Dayton is close to completing a new athletics complex that will be a prominent symbol for the school near downtown Dayton.

The school expects to see its Margie and Bill Klesse Soccer Complex, west of Fitz Hall and near the intersection of South Main Street and East Stewart Street, finished and ready to use by the end of October. This complex, thanks to a major donation, will be a visible sign of the school's athletics program for commuters headed up South Main and into downtown.

UD resumes plan for $11M student housing complex



After a delay, University of Dayton will push ahead this year for plans for a 96-unit townhome project it has been eyeing just south of its campus.

The school will begin work on the four-story, $11.2 million apartment building at 301 Lowes St. in May, demolishing the McGinnis Center located there now, with the plan to open the building to students in August 2018. The two- and four-bedroom townhomes will be furnished with appliances, solid surface countertops and wood-look ceramic tile. The building is intended to complement the surrounding neighborhood, which is largely houses owned by UD and other landlords rented to students.

UD names new student residence hall



The new University of Dayton residence hall under construction on Lowes Street will be named after a co-founder of the Marianist family.

The Adele Center celebrates Mother Adele de Batz de Trenquelléon.

“Honoring Mother Adele in this way is most appropriate,” said the Rev. James Fitz, the university’s vice president for mission and rector. “Mother Adele will be beatified in the Roman Catholic Church this coming June; beatification proclaims the person is a worthy model for living our discipleship as Christians.”

UD to add green space along Brown Street

The University of Dayton is going green. The school will remove a former funeral home and small apartment building and create green space at the corner of Brown Street and Sawmill Road.

UD bought the properties at 1733 Brown St. and 1717 Brown St. in 2012 to ensure any future use would be compatible with the neighborhood, which is contiguous to campus.

New building planned for UD campus could house three high-profile groups

A two-story office building planned at the University of Dayton would bring three well-known community groups under one roof.

UD is looking to construct a new academic and office facility at 1401 S. Main St. on campus. The 38,000-square-foot building would house The Dayton Foundation, the Dayton Development Coalition and the university's Fitz Center for Leadership in Community, which has 10 employees. University officials said an estimated project cost is not yet available.
