With over 50 construction projects underway, many with historic tax credits and other progressive funding methods, the public and private sector are both investing heavily in the downtown core. Since the inception of the Greater Downtown Dayton Plan, created in 2009, investment has accelerated to the point of over $520 million of projects funded and another $530 million in the pipeline. With the Levitt Pavilion in the works, the new 7-story CareSource Center City building, the Fire Blocks district as a planned entertainment district, the River Run kayaking areas along the river, and downtown housing booming, the face of our downtown region will change dramatically over the coming few years.
