Even More Residential Units Coming to Dayton's Riverfront. Here's What They'll Look Like.

The community got a look at what the new single family and apartment homes along Dayton's riverfront will look like when the city's planning & zoning committee unanimously approved the plans on Wednesday evening.

Five mid-rise buildings with 43 apartment units and 54 parking spaces, as well as two additional larger buildings with 76 units and and 128 parking spaces make up the plans that will complement the larger single-family dwellings under construction at Manhattan Harbour.

Most of the apartment units will have one bedroom and a flex space that could be used as a second bedroom. Other units will be townhome style. Possible purchase or rent prices were not available Wednesday.

The planning & zoning committee offered its blessing to the plans with conditions that include placing one bench will be provided for every 500 feet of walking space, a landscape plan will be approved by city staff/planning, as well as technical and engineering issues related to being located in the flood plain. 

The nearby park will likely be relocated.

While the developers had hoped to participate in the upcoming HomeFest that will be hosted at Manhattan Harbour in October, they will instead shoot for construction of their project later this year or early next year.
