Louisville-based City Properties Group has purchased the Weustoff & Getz building at 210 Wayne Avenue as part of its mixed-use plan to expand the Oregon District into what is being called "Oregon East." The group plans to renovate the building, creating 40 new downtown apartments.

New Student Housing
200 Planned Apartments

An $18 million student housing complex will be built in downtown Dayton at the site of the former Dayton Daily News building and adjacent property, Cox Media Group Ohio announced in April, 2013. The complex, which will be located on the corner of Ludlow and Fourth streets, will breathe new life into this portion of the center city while increasing housing options. The historic 1908 “bank” building at the corner of Fourth and Ludlow streets will be renovated while the press rooms to the west and the large 1950s newspaper office building attached to the north will be demolished, as will the city-owned Schwind building further north at 25 S. Ludlow St. In their place, Missouri-based Student Suites will construct a five-story, U-shaped, 200-apartment building with a courtyard, also using the existing 93-space parking lot to the west of the building.
