DAYTON, Ohio (WDTN) – Demand for downtown living is booming and developers are cashing in.

Several new housing development projects are underway.

The Downtown Dayton Partnership president, Sandy Gudorf says the demand is there.

“Over the next 18  months or so we have another 440 new housing units in the greater Dayton area going up and that’s a combination of condos and rental properties. So, that’s really good news for us,” she said.

Here’s a list of what’s planned:

  • The Flats at South Park, 20 new upscale units are expected to be built. The development on Warren St. near Brown St. is in the early stages, but developers hope to begin construction early next year.
  • The Delco Lofts will transform the old Delco building at 329 E. First St. into 132 residential units. View floors plans, by clicking here
