Final Phase Begins on YWCA Dayton Renovation Project

Mike Colvin Fast Facts

The third phase of an $18 million renovation project is now underway at YWCA Dayton. The Renovating Lives project started back in 2018. After a short pause due to supply chain issues, the first two phases of the project have been completed. That work focused on the building’s third through seventh floors, which include the domestic violence shelter and permanent housing units. Construction crews are now shifting focus to areas of the first floor and some individual spaces that they hope to have completed by the end of this year. Phase three of the project will include a community and meeting space, a commercial kitchen, and a lobby upgrade. The vice president of mission, brand and programs at YWCA Dayton, Audrey Starr, tells the Dayton Business Journal that the timing of the project could not be better, as the organization is seeing an increase in need for services. “Our Central Building has been a mainstay in downtown Dayton, and is known widely as a beacon of safety and hope. Recognizing that legacy while bringing it into the modern day is an honor we take seriously.”
