Downtown Dayton may be getting a new hotel for the first time since the 1970s.
Woodard Development is set to construct a Fairfield Inn in the Water Street District. The area already houses residential developments and office space.
Tony Kroeger, Dayton’s City Planner, said the district has seen a lot of new development recently.
“The fact that somebody’s willing to make an investment like this in Downtown certainly would be a sign of confidence,” said Kroeger.
The Greater Downtown Land Use Board backed plans to build the seven story hotel last night.
The project will be presented to the Dayton Plan Board or approval next month.
