Investment in Commercial Development and Redevelopment Remains Strong

Washington Township is continuing to see an upsurge in commercial projects, with two infill developments and a redevelopment project underway or in the planning phase. Projects include an updated retail center in the downtown district and two new office buildings:

SICSA Pet Adoption Center

The SICSA Pet Adoption Center will move to the north end of Washington Church Road, but with a more modern design than originally planned. SICSA promotes the welfare and adoption of companion animals and is the only "no kill" facility of its kind in the region.

Hospice Office Building

Ohio's Hospice is planning a new office building for the corner of Paragon Road and Congress Park Drive, on the same 6.5-acre property where the nonprofit relocated its administrative offices earlier this year. The property is the site of the former Design Forum building.

The new, one-story office building will be constructed of glass and brick with a low-level roof and a circular vehicle drop-off portico. A water feature and decorative wall also are planned for the corner. The office building will use the same entrance as the larger, original structure to the north and will share the same parking area which will be expanded.

Ohio's Hospice held a ribbon cutting in March to celebrate the relocation of its administrative offices to the 35,404-square-foot Design Forum building. Functions there include human resources, finance, communications, business development, education and training, and the patient support call center. Ohio's Hospice continues to serve patients and families at its Wilmington Avenue headquarters.

Yankee Station

The Yankee Station retail center at the corner of Miamisburg-Centerville Road and Washington Village Drive is receiving a new exterior, including a redesigned roofline and an Yankee Stationupdated façade that is sleeker and more contemporary.

"Yankee Station redevelopment continues the robust investment in our downtown," said Development Director Ryan Lee. "The quality and appearance of the redevelopment is consistent with Whole Foods and Oak Creek Marketplace retail and restaurant center, located to the east."

In addition to exterior improvements, a large retail space on the west end of the center facing Washington Village Drive will be subdivided into as many as nine new tenant spaces where a health club previously was located.

Design Homes

Construction is underway on a two-story office building in front of the Galleria on Yankee Street, near Lyons Road. The 20,000-square-foot building, which is compatible in appearance to the original building, represents the second of three phases originally planned for the property. The plan identifies three structures, the Galleria building plus two office buildings in front.


Transitional Care

Elected officials welcomed Social Row Transitional Care to Washington Township in April. The nearly 100,000-square-foot facility includes 100 beds for post-acute and long-term care. Amenities include a therapy gym with a model garage, kitchen, bathroom and laundry room for patients to prepare for their transition to home.

Single-Family Developments Flourish

Residential development in the southern part of Washington Township includes new single-family projects, plus existing developments where building continues to take place:

Washington Glen

The township's largest new residential project is Washington Glen, an 84-acre, single-family development on the west side of Yankee Street, south of Social Row Road and across from Waterbury Woods Drive. The plan approved in 2015 includes 261 single-family homes with two distinct neighborhoods and housing styles – one for empty nesters and the other a Developmentmore traditional neighborhood layout for families, with pockets of recreational space.

The plan includes a landscaped boulevard and entrance at Yankee Street with a traffic signal, a decorative water feature to the north, and multi-use trails that provide access from Yankee to Springboro. Washington Glen extends southwest from the Yankee Street entrance and provides connectivity to both Yankee Terrace and Settler's Walk.


Construction is underway at Wynstone, a 96-home development located on 63 acres off Clyo Road, near Rooks Road and southeast of the Trails of Saddlecreek subdivision. Homes average about 2,000-square feet and exteriors are primarily stone and brick, with no vinyl. Prices start at $300,000, with an average price of $400,000. The development by M/I homes of Cincinnati.

New Home Construction in Existing Neighborhoods

New home construction also continues in another half dozen existing neighborhoods.

Weatherstone - located on State Route 48 south of Social Row Road, Weatherstone will soon connect to the eastern edge of Washington Trace Annex, located southeast of Sheehan and Social Row roads.

Other existing single-family developments in the south that continue to grow include:

  • Villages of Winding Creek – located on the east side of State Route 48, south of Social Row
  • Enclaves, phase II – located on East Spring Valley Road, east of Clyo Road
  • Washington Trace – located south of Social Row on both sides of Sheehan

Multi-Family Developments

Redwood at Washington Station - Construction is underway on a single-story apartment development by Redwood Acquisitions, set on 22 acres at the southwest corner of Social Row and Dayton Lebanon Pike. The apartments are the second component of a 64-acre mixed use development, following Goddard School.

Oberer Companies - Trustees have approved a conceptual plan for a residential multi-family development at the southeast corner of Sheehan and Social Row roads within the Washington Trace Development. The complex proposes "big house" style arthitecture that resembles large, single-family homes.

Redwood at Devonshire - Ground was broken in late 2014 on another residential development by Redwood Acquisitions on the west side of Yankee Street, south of Austin Boulevard. The property, previously zoned as Light Industrial, is now the site of high-end, single-story rental units that cater to residents 55 and older.
