Why the Triangle?

We have a neighborhood association that actively works for the betterment of the Triangle. You can find on us Facebook, and often on Nextdoor. The Dayton View Triangle Federation stays in touch with the City government to make sure we are aware of any opportunities our community might be able to profit by.

The houses are beautiful and well built, the streets are green. The Triangle was a suburb when it was built, and it still has that peaceful feel. Click here to see more photos of the neighborhood.

Homes for Sale
When Dayton lost manufacturing jobs over the last 40 years, many Triangle homeowners struggled. The houses they had to leave are coming back on the market, usually renovated to modern standards while retaining original features like oak floors, deep moldings, or wrought iron. Originally built primarily in the 1920s-1940s these homes still retain their original historic charm! Check out sites like the two links below to see what’s available today. If you’re from a big city, you won’t believe what your dollars will get you!

At the heart of the Triangle is a 32 acre campus that used to house the United Theological Seminary, with grounds designed by the Olmsted brothers whose family designed New York City's Central Park. The Omega Baptist Church that now owns the property set up the Omega Community Development Corporation (OCDC) that has acquired most of the funding needed to build a community center, called the Hope Center for Families, focusing on health, education, and workforce development. Omega has partnered with Miller Valentine Affordable Housing (MVAH) to bring the Omega Senior Lofts to the property. The Senior Lofts are already under construction, and the Hope Center is not far behind.
The area just across Salem Avenue from the Triangle has just lost a large hospital. Many possibilities have been discussed for this “anchor site” for the whole area. Take a look at the current ideas here to see what the consultants from The Phoenix Next Project and the area residents together are suggesting as appropriate uses. Very exciting, and another opportunity for neighborhood involvement.
Also, the Triangle faces the main artery running up from the river and downtown, Salem Avenue (aka the Peace Corridor). Click here to see what the Salem Avenue Peace Corridor organization is working with the City to bring about!
The future home of the Gem City Market co-op is just a couple of minutes down Salem Avenue as you head toward downtown. It's slated to be Dayton's first full service grocery store in downtown Dayton in decades. The market is in in the final stages of fundraising and hopes to begin construction toward the end of 2019. Current plans for the market include fresh meat and produce, a demonstration kitchen, a minute clinic, coffee shop, and community space.
