This page contains documents which summarize ongoing developments in Dayton. Contact the Planning department with any questions regarding these developments or the development process in general.

2021 and the start of 2022 has been busy for the city with new industrial development due to the opening of the Dayton Parkway Interchange on November 5, 2022. Graco is constructing their first building (550,000 sq ft) within the former French Lake Industrial Center that they purchased (100 acres). A second 500,000 sq ft facility within this campus is currently under review for approvals in May. The city is excited to welcome Graco and the potential for 350 new jobs over the next 2-3 years with the opening of these facilities plus additional buildings and jobs as they complete the buildout of their campus.

The Cubes (1 million sq ft distribution facility) was approved in 2021 on the former French Lake Golf Course. Construction will begin this spring and will include the extension of Dayton Parkway to 117th Avenue paid by the developer.

  • ALRO Steel (195,000 sq ft) is a steel manufacturing and warehouse facility that will break ground this spring.
  • Park Place Storage is a condo (units are for purchase) storage facility located east of ALRO that will also break ground this Spring.
  • Dayton Interchange Business Center (124,000 sq ft) was approved early this year. This is a spec warehouse building located south of CR 81, north of Territorial Rd and east of Dayton Parkway.
  • Finally, Kwik Trip will break ground this summer on their new convenience store at CR 81 and Brockton Lane.
  • Other projects under review include a 300,000 sq ft distribution facility west of The Cubes development. Approvals are anticipated this spring.

Two new residential developments, Territorial Commons (76 townhomes) and Riverwalk (237 single-family homes) were approved in 2021.  In addition to the new development, the City processed a high volume of new construction permits and decks, remodels, fences, and basement finishes in 2021.  Residential development is continuing strong during this first quarter of 2022 with the continued development of existing neighborhoods of Brayburn, Sundance Greens, amongst others.  The beginning of newly approved developments such as Riverwalk is anticipated in the late spring to early summer.
