Water Street Redevelopment Project
The Requarth Co. welcomes yesterday’s announcement of the Water Street Redevelopment Project and the improvements it promises for our Webster Station neighborhood and downtown Dayton. While previous redevelopment schemes failed to take advantage of existing area assets such as our building and the former Woolpert Building next door, the new Water Street plan accommodates our company in our current location and makes the proposed development truly “mixed-use.”
The Requarth Co. has been committed to the success of downtown Dayton since our founding in 1860. Once the previous “Ballpark Village” redevelopment project was abandoned in 2008 – and with it our plans to relocate – we moved quickly to make substantial investments in our facility and business.
The capstone of those improvements is the new Supply One Showroom, opened just last year after an extensive renovation of our historic mill. Our new product showroom boasts 3500 square feet of kitchen and bath cabinetry, millwork, window and door displays and earned a national excellence award this past November.
We look forward to being part of downtown redevelopment, to greeting the hundreds of new residents of the Water Street apartments, and to the added vibrancy they will bring to our neighborhood.
