Downtown Dayton is quickly becoming the hip place to live for young professionals starting out their lives, families scooping up housing in historic districts, and amazing pads for empty nesters. Living downtown puts you in the center of everything – parks, theatere, restaurants, cafes and sporting events. Your commute to work is a few minutes on foot. You have the choice of a trendy loft or beautiful historic home.
In this episode, our host Libby Ballengee chats about the exciting rise of downtown living with Val Beerbower from the Downtown Dayton Partnership and Amy Walbridge from the City of Dayton’s Department of Economic Development.
Think living downtown is not realistic or accessible? You may be pleasantly surprised to learn that there are opportunities and various price points and for lots of different lifestyles.
Curious to learn more? The Downtown Dayton Partnership hosts a spring housing tour. It’s an easy and fun way to check out the cool condos and apartments that are available.
This Year’s Housing Tour: Saturday, May 5, 2018 from 1pm – 5pm

Making good art is difficult, very difficult. It is important to acknowledge the endeavor and all of its processes, from conception to process and ultimately exhibition. The Blue House aims to support artists engaged in this practice by offering studio spaces, residencies and exhibition space.
1.) To create a learning place audiences can comfortably converge and exchange or interpret ideas.
2.) To show artwork that challenges ideas and advances the notions of the condition of art on a regional and national level.
3.) To bring artists from around the area and across the country to collaborate, create and contribute to our regional culture.
The Blue House began in 2014 when Nicholaus Arnold and Ashley Jonas teamed up with Blue House owner, Diana Cordero to create an arts center in Northwest Dayton. Diana’s love for the neighborhood inspired her to acquire and transform the large blue house located near the corner of Seibenthaler and Catalpa; which was a vacant property in the area. Nicholaus and Ashley had just relocated to the area after graduate school at Syracuse University and The University of Colorado Boulder where they each received their MFA’s respectively. These three worked together renovating and rebuilding many areas of the house; resulting in the creation of a livable residence and a viable creative space.
Today, The Blue House is a site of multiple artist studios, an exhibition space and soon to be artist residency. The Blue House regularly brings in artists and creators to collaborate and create in our space with the goal of betterment through the arts. We hope to see you at our next show!
