3 projects transforming downtown Dayton

The developer behind the Wheelhouse Lofts plans to build 153 new apartments next door, joining many other high profile projects underway in downtown Dayton.

Here are three projects you need to know about.

1. The 503 apartments

Weyland Ventures is lining up financing to build a four-story, 153-unit apartment community on the former site of Garden Station. The developer also built Wheelhouse Lofts next door near the corner of Wayne Avenue and East Fourth Street, on the edge of the Oregon District.

2. Mendelson's building

Developer Crawford Hoyin bought the Mendelson's buildings — which takes up an entire city block — for $7.8 million and is exploring options to redevelop the site.

Crawford Hoying and Woodard Development already have a track record building the Water Street District along the Great Miami River and now have a presence on all sides of Fifth Third Field.

3. Dayton Motor Car Building

Construction started this summer on redeveloping the Dayton Motor Car Building at 15 McDonough St. into an office for Gosiger Inc. and other companies.

Weyland Ventures is also behind the project, working on the project with Miller-Valentine Construction. It will cost an estimated $18.2 million to transform the six-story building.
