Water Street, located north of the ballpark, has 215 apartments, including 30 townhomes. The district also has a four-story office building at Monument Avenue and Patterson Boulevard.
Woodard Development has submitted plans to construct a trio of three-story buildings east of its current residential facilities.
The new structures will look similar to the current residential complex.
Two buildings will directly overlook the bike path and river. The other will be almost perpendicular to the river, near the corner of Webster and Water streets, though one end will face the waterway.
Developers want to start construction at the end of March, beginning of April. But they will need to appear before the Dayton Plan Board for a major site design review.
The first units will probably open later in the fall, and others will come online in stages. The apartments are expected to lease for between $1,100 and $1,700 per month.
The Water Street District also will welcome 133 new apartments when the Delco Lofts building opens, expected for July 1.
