DAYTON, Ohio (WDTN) – The President of the Downtown Dayton Partnership says the current vacancy rate downtown is 3.5 percent. The demand for housing right now is higher than the options available.
The Water Street Flats opened early summer and they are almost full today.
“I think that really does attest to the demand of more and more people who want to live downtown and why people want to live downtown, it’s the walk-ability, walking to the Schuter, or Riverscape, or to your favorite restaurant,” Sandy Gudorf, President Downtown Dayton Partnership says.
600 new housing units are expected downtown in the 18 months.
