South Park Rising: Cliburn to finally be demolished.

Good news today from the DBJ:

Dayton apartment complex to be demolished – Dayton Business Journal:
The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development’s Special Application Center has approved the demolition of the Cliburn Manor, an apartment complex in Dayton.

Greg Johnson, executive director of the Dayton Metropolitan Housing Authority, said demolition on the complex will begin late next summer once all of the residents are moved out.    …

The DMHA will have meetings with the city and community partners to talk about possible redevelopment options but has not set a meeting date yet, Johnson said.

The Cliburn Manor, located at 111 Hickory St., has 80 units which have been plagued with many issues such as moisture penetration and sewer main problems.

Johnson said repairing all of the issues in the 38-year-old building would cost around $15.7 million…

Coupled with the recent spurt of private investment culminating in Rehabarama II for South Park, the AIA plan, our great community involvement, the recent investments on Brown Street and in Fairgrounds- all point to South Park being the next big thing in urban, walkable communities in Dayton- and that’s without Kroger moving forward on their plans.
