No street in the Shaw Neighborhood of St. Louis has the deck stacked against it quite like DeTonty. While some areas in the neighborhood need more work than others, none has to address the challenge of facing a highway. Unfortunately, DeTonty runs along the southern end of Interstate-44 for it’s entire length. Existing properties have largely […]
When half of the old McRee Town neighborhood was razed by McBride & Son Homes in 2004 to create the new neighborhood/subdivision Botanical Heights, most people didn’t seem too upset. Although the plan used questionable eminent domain tactics, there was no denying that the St. Louis neighborhood needed a lot of attention. Although the development did […]
If you often drive I-44 in St. Louis City, you probably noticed the large infill project that was built at the southeast corner of Lafayette and Jefferson in the Lafayette Square neighborhood. Designed by the Lawrence Group for developer Gilded Age, this project was been named and modeled after the former Union Club, which stood […]
Fox Park is one of those South St. Louis neighborhoods in the midst of a transition. Unfortunately, like many of the surrounding neighborhoods such as Benton Park West and Tower Grove East, the current downturn in the market has stalled the progress of redevelopment in the area. But all I see when I pass through […]
No other active real estate development project in the St. Louis area has received as much attention as Ballpark Village. The planned $800 million project is the product of the St. Louis Cardinals and Baltimore-based Cordish Company, but has faced hurdle after hurdle. “On again, off again” since the completion of Busch Stadium III, the developers say […]
The 10 acre parking lot formerly owned by Bi-State Development Agency at 3801 Park Avenue has been in a state of disarray for a number of years.It would be fair to call it a hideous eyesore, with cracked concrete and weeds everywhere. Considering the lot’s proximity to Cardinal Glennon Children’s Hospital and various larger businesses, […]
For those that thought new infill construction in the City of St. Louis was currently dead, Blue Brick Construction has an answer for you: 4268 Hartford. They are currently in the middle of construction at this LEED Platinum (certification level goal) 4 bedroom, 2.5 bathroom house in the Tower Grove South neighborhood. For reference, it […]
Even in the best of economic times, real estate developments fall through all the time. In a recession, this trend can become an epidemic. One seeming victim to this trend is the proposed Pelican Place project at 2232 and 2256 South Grand in the Compton Heights neighborhood. The Planning & Urban Design Agency of the […]
Tucked away, in the heart of the historic Shaw neighborhood of St. Louis, Missouri is a vacant lot. An, unfortunately, common site in this city of ours. But if group of developers has there way, by the end of the year there might something a little different at 4136 Flad: a high efficiently, green home. […]
Although they have been leasing units since November, I just now got a chance to take a look at the recently completed Courtyard Lofts at Polar Wave project. Located at 2222 Gravois Ave in the St. Louis, neighborhood of Benton Park, the 14-townhome project is located in the same building as Shock City Studios and […]
The Post Dispatch is reporting that Cardinals President Bill Dewitt III has informed them not to expect any changes in the 2010 lineup at the future Ballpark Village project location.
I have been admiring the LEED-certified green projects of Ecourban Homes for a couple of years now, but their new stuff shows even more promise. Continuing to add sensible contemporary elements into their projects, this new lineup of bungalows is all just great.
Don’t know how I missed this one, but it seems that Amy and Amrit Gill, of Restoration St. Louis fame, have a whooper of a project on the horizon. Over 37 residential and 11 commercial units over 67,000 square feet along Manchester to be exact.
Love it or hate it, the three infill homes at 2650-58 Michigan in Tower Grove East are now complete. They could do well with a bit less siding, but overall, the project looks to be a nice addition to the area.
What do Winghaven in O’fallon and North St. Louis have in common? Not much, but if developer Paul McKee has his way, his company McEagle Properties will have been the brains behind the (re)creation of both areas. Beware of bulldozers!
