The apartment will be made up of 158 studios, both one and two-bedroom units. However, according to Weyland Project Manager Mary Kate Lindsey, The 503 will primarily be for one-bedroom units and studio apartments.
St. Paul Evangelical Lutheran Church
Around a year ago, Weyland acquired the site on which this former church building and intends to build a live entertainment joint at the venue. The project’s timeline was affected by the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic although there are plans to have its plan included in the final development. There are also proposals to have the building turned into an office space.
Weyland is also developing a new park called Flightline Park in a public-private partnership with the city of Dayton. It is also part of the Oregon East project. This project is still under planning stage and yet to move full execution.
This is a 59,000-square-foot, mixed-use property located in the Oregon District and was the first project that the company completed in the area. The project features 40 apartment units plus 13,000-square-foot of commercial space that have been leased to various businesses.
