New Third + Dayton apartments open to general public in Hamilton

Actually, make that 25, because one has been rented by a young employee of Kirsch CPA Group, which is located a short walk away.

Suddenly, the downtown area has been blossoming with new apartments. Another 102 apartments opened at The Marcum complex in early 2019. Later in 2019, Asian students who are participating in an English-immersion program at Miami University’s Hamilton campus began moving into other floors of the Third + Dayton complex.

The new group of apartments, this one available to the general public, are all single-bedroom units, each with one bathroom. They also have views of the surrounding downtown and German Village areas.

The apartment sizes range from 498 square feet to 820 square feet. The 498-s.f. units rent for $580 per months, with the 820-s.f. units going for $960.

“They feel very spacious, I would say very spacious,” said Natalie Pence of Jeff Boyle Group, which is the leasing agent. Areas between apartments “don’t feel like your typical apartment hallways, everything is very open. Everything is very clean and crisp.”

The rental rates include utilities, with the exception of cable and Internet, she said. “It is pet-friendly as well.”

“The feel is very urban,” Pence added. “It could be geared toward young professionals or single families.”

The apartments feel “very crisp, clean, new, fresh,” she said. “I think it’s a great location, also. There’s a bus transport that stops right out front, so people can use public transportation.”

John Kirsch of Kirsch CPA this week before a city meeting told colleagues an employee had rented an apartment in the $500 range, and he wondered about the quality, until he saw photos of the inside, which very much impressed him.

“We’ve had three different inquiries on the building today alone, so it’s definitely getting out there to the public,” Pence said Tuesday.

A ribbon cutting for the apartments, located at 136 N. Third St., will happen from 4-7:30 p.m. Friday.

The apartments will be staffed for viewings Mondays and Thursdays from noon to 5 p.m., with additional availability when people make appointments.
