$10M South Park mixed-use project close to starting



A major project in the South park neighborhood of Dayton is close to beginning.

The Flats at South Park development, a mixed-use project proposed along Warren Street between Miami Valley Hospital and Coco's Bistro, could break ground by May, said Steve Budd, president of CityWide Development Corp. which has been working the project.

$10M South Park development passes key hurdle



A $10 million South Park development in Dayton passed a key hurdle Tuesday night, ending a months-long standoff about a drive-through on the property.

Dayton's Board of Zoning Appeals approved all but one variance for the first phase of the Flats at South Park mixed-use project along Warren Street at Burns Avenue, with a number of conditions to address residents' concerns about a drive-through planned on the north side of the building. The project, years in the works, has gone through a number of iterations.

Damn, that's a hideous looking building. Looks like a university dorm from the 1960s. And we think we get bad infill in Cincinnati...

No argument here.  But this is worse by several orders of magnitude.

I don't disagree that this is a bad, boring basic design...but if you think this is magnitudes worse than half the stuff on McMillan (i.e. Campus Park), Corryville, or Columbia-Tusculum (i.e. anything along Columbia Pkwy), then we clearly have a different set of eyes.

^I'm not trying to be an a$$, and I realize that it's great for infill to be occurring in Dayton, basically regardless of design, but this rendering just seems awful.  It's one solid mass of a building, with no variation in height, color, materials.  It's got no articulation of a corner, no cornice or anything at the top of the building, no balconies, and the windows seem very small.  It literally reminds me of the OSU north campus dorms that are now being replaced.

Again, I don't disagree that it's a basic, boring brick design.  The "a$$" part was And we think we get bad infill in Cincinnati......which is clearly incorrect.  And for the record, those North Campus dorms at OSU are "magnitudes" better (quality, crispness, texture) than that McMillan/Corryville/Columbia Pkwy stuff.  Bottom line is, it's just a brick box in South Park.  Not offensive, not bad, not good.

I just noticed they broke ground on the above project. There's a fence up and they've been moving dirt around.

Historic Dayton cemetery to embark on $3.5M restoration project

Woodland Cemetery and Arboretum, which dates back to 1841, will embark on a $3.5 million facelift. The historic Dayton cemetery is raising funds for the restoration and preservation of three historic structures on the cemetery property.

The 130-year old structures are listed on the National Register of Historic Places, and the cemetery, itself, is listed as a National Historic District by the U. S. Department of the Interior.
