KETTERING, Ohio (WDTN) - In a forgotten corner of the old Defense Electronics Supply Center (DESC) facility, now called the Kettering Business Park, is a new development.
Once inaccessible at the corner of Acorn Drive and Peach Orchard Road, workers are now making a new road to this new project.
Phase One is the construction of a lower income senior retirement center which they hope to have finished by late summer.
After that, Greater Dayton Construction is going to start working on the housing units.
Eight, single-story units called land-ominiums will be built and sold for around $150,000 per unit.
But perhaps the most exciting news for Kettering residents is the addition of a new neighborhood park called Gentile Park.
"The name of the former DESC facility was called the Gentile Air Station so were naming the park after Major Gentile," explained Kettering city planner Steve Bergstresser.
The park will also connect to the new Dayton-Kettering Bikeway now under construction.
