Metropolitan is in the process of submitting permits now, Schommer said. Construction should start by the end of April and the first people could move into the apartments, townhouses and carriage houses in 12 to 14 months, said development project manager Andrew Wappner.
This project is the Columbus-based developers first move into the Dayton area. Market research showed that there weren’t many new units available for rent, Wappner said, and his boss liked the area.
“We really think that bringing this residential component to that area will be a catalyst for additional development into the available properties in the area … We feel that the area is right for retail and service industry such as additional hotel, additional restaurants, additional light retail,” Schommer said.

The development will be called Parkview and overlooks Carriage Park. It’s also near Rose Music Center, the Kroger Aquatic Center and the Huber Heights YMCA, one of the reasons Metropolitan chose the parcel for development.
“It’s just a continuation of our hard work as a community in that area,” Campbell said.
The luxury development will include one, two or three bedroom layouts with stainless steel appliances, garbage disposal, granite counter tops in kitchens and baths, washers and dryers in unit, plank flooring in kitchens and baths, central air conditioning and electric heat, recessed, track and pendant lighting, large walk-in closets, exterior patios and attached or detached garages on select units, according to the developer’s website.
There will also be a clubhouse, fitness center, community garden and resort-style pool within the division.
Tenants can have pets.
