Old Dayton View
Dayton, Ohio

Development:
80 Family Rental units
55 Homeownership units
30 Senior Apartment units

In October 1999, Dayton Metropolitan Housing Authority (DMHA) received a HOPE VI grant for $18.3 million to revitalize the Old Dayton View Neighborhood, one of Dayton’s most severely distressed communities. The grant funded activities in Dayton included the demolition of 213 public housing units and construction of Dayton View Commons, a rental community of 80 units, Salem Crossing, 55 for-sale units, and a Senior Village of 30 apartments.

Dayton View Commons consists of 80 rental units (in 55 physical structures) of newly-built one, two, three and four bedroom single-family and duplex homes on-site and scattered throughout the Old Dayton View neighborhood.  Unit sizes range from 800-1800 square feet.  The same single family floor plans have been used for Salem Crossing, the homeownership phase, which provides wonderfully integrated streetscape of neo-Victorian appearance. The Senior Village, a brand new three-story 30-unit building for seniors features central air and individual kitchens. The community space includes a commercial-grade kitchen, a meeting room and elevators.

Salem Crossing is a first time homebuyers program with homes priced in the low $100’s.   The homes have three and four bedrooms, garage, full basement, and large eat-in kitchens.  The first time homebuyer incomes purchasing the homes range from $25,000 to $35,000.
