The vacant lot at 3506 Morganford was formerly occupied by a gas station. Last summer, Tower Grove South neighborhood residents made attempts at creating garden at the site, but other than that, the property has been idle since the gas station left. Like so many other sites around the City, the remaining underground gas tanks were a health hazard and hurdle for potential developers.
Looks like someone made a pet project of cleaning the place up because the gas tanks have now been removed. Crews from the Missouri Department of Natural Resources finished removing the tanks last week. Now that the site has been cleaned up, it will be interesting to see if the City can find any takers for this LRA-owned land. For more information on the property, check out the LRA for sale listing.
