A Grove (AKA Forest Park Southeast) mixed use building located at 601 S. Vandeventer may soon see an $88,000 rehab into 3 residential units. The owner is Clayton Avenue Apartments, LLC.
The parcel has been consolidated, taking in both 601 S. Vandeventer and a group of three 2-family buildings just to the west. The owner has been slowly rehabbing the three 2-families, which sport uniquely styled mansard roofs, for several years. Now the mixed use building attached to them may see rehab as well.

A mixed use building located at 5351 Murdoch in the Southampton neighborhood is under a $75,000 rehab.

No word yet on potential tenants for the building. If we receive any information, we will post it here.
Three new homes have been proposed for construction by Pagano Land Development and HDC Homes without Limits on three vacant lots in the Forest Park Southeast neighborhood. The lots are located at 4401 Gibson, 4403 Gibson, and 4448 Chouteau.
The Forest Park Southeast Development Committee will review the proposal and consider offering tax abatement for the three new homes at its monthly meeting this coming Tuesday, December 17, 2013 at 5:30 p.m.
The homes would be fully-accessible and green-certified and would clock in at 2,200 square feet each.
The model submitted to the Development Committee to demonstrate the design of the new homes was Pagano’s previous construction at Macklind and Magnolia in the Southwest Garden neighborhood (see below):
The same developers that have proposed a 4-story 107-room Hilton Home Hotel near the intersection of Taylor and Chouteau are now proposing to construct a 3-story, 10,800 square foot mixed use (retail/office) building flush with the corner (addressed as 904-920 S. Taylor).
The Forest Park Southeast Development Committee will review this project and consider offering tax abatement to it at its monthly meeting this coming Tuesday, December 17, 2013 at 5:30 p.m.
The agenda for the meeting shows a site plan and rendering:
The proposed 3-story building would sit just to the south of the Hilton Home Hotel and just to the west of the now completed Aventura residential complex.
A parking lot with six spaces would sit just north of the new office/retail building. No specific retail or office tenants were noted for the building in the agenda.
A new single family home is being constructed at 1107 Dolman in Lafayette Square. The building permit amount is $250,000.
The new structure will join several other recent new single family homes to create a nearly intact street wall from what as recently as a decade ago a desolate block filled with vacant lots.
The builders, Tyler Olsen and Christopher Brenner, sought and received design approval from the city’s Preservation Board this October. The rendering of the home below was acquired through the city’s Cultural Resource Office’s October 2013 Preservation Board Agenda.

A five-story, 55-unit mixed use building has been proposed by Forest Park Southeast developers Amy and Amrit Gill for 4400 Manchester in the Grove. The building would house the development offices of the Gills (Restoration St. Louis) on the ground floor as well as a pizza/pasta restaurant, with 55 universal design apartment units above. The new structure would face the under-construction Urban Chestnut Brewing facility on the north side of Manchester.
Below is a rendering of the structure, which would subsume two adjacent parcels at 4400-08 and 4410-12 Manchester. Both are presently vacant lots, though it is unclear if nearby buildings to the south (on Swan Avenue) will remain or will be replaced with parking.
Two substance abuse treatment centers to be administered by Preferred Family Healthcare are underway in south St. Louis. The first, for adolescents, will be constructed on a vacant lot on Gravois just west of Grand (3634 Gravois) in the Tower Grove South neighborhood. The second, for adults, is currently under construction at 4066 Dunnica in the Dutchtown neighborhood.
See more information on the two centers from a Press Release dated November 1, 2013:
The Dunnica Ave. adult facilities will be a 24,000-square-foot building situated on 1.15 acres, featuring 16 residential beds, 12 offices, 2 nurse’s stations, doctor’s office, community/recreation rooms and enclosed courtyard area. Construction will be headed up by T.S. Banze, and costs are estimated at $5.8 million. The building should be completed by September 2014. Once the facilities open, it expects to treat approximately 900 consumers annually.
The Gravois Ave. adolescent facilities will be a 24,000-square-foot building situated on 1.5 acres, with many of the same amenities as the Dunnica Ave. location, with the addition of a family visitation area. Construction will be headed up by RC Excavating, and costs are estimated at $5.6 million. The building should be completed by June 2015. Once open, the adolescent facilities will treat approximately 120 consumers annually.
A rendering of the Dunnica facility is shown below:
A rendering of the Gravois facility is shown below:
The two facilities will be located approximately one mile from one another.
A $300,000 building permit application is on file with the Building Division of the City of St. Louis to rehab the old Tin Can Tavern space at 3157 Morgan Ford in the Tower Grove South neighborhood. The permit has not yet been issued. The intended use may be another bar and grill.
The owner is Pennpark, LLC, 1750 S. Brentwood.
