A new suburban-style single family home has been constructed in the Gate District at 3017 Caroline.
Below is a recent photograph of the structure, which was built at a cost of $102,000 per building permit records.
This portion of the block previously lacked a sidewalk (this Dotage St. Louis blog post shows some circa 2009 Google Streetview photos of the block), so the completed home has not only filled in a vacant lot but has improved the neighborhood’s pedestrian network as well.
A commercial building located at 2714 Lafayette in the Gate District is soon to be rehabbed into offices. The developer is Lafser and Associates. The permit amount is $400,000. Tuxedo Park Leasing will be leasing the building.
Tuxedo Park has nominated the building to the National Register of Historic Places and has already proceeded to remove a stucco facade from the building with a prior building permit. Below is one of their photographs of the building post-stucco:

When fully rehabbed, the visual transformation will be even more dramatic.

Park Avenue Place LP is rehabbing two adjacent two-family structures, located at 3503 and 3505 Park Avenue in the Gate District, just east of St. Louis University’s Medical Campus. Each rehab is priced at $50,000. Work should begin shortly.

The northwest corner of Lafayette and Compton in the Gate District was not very welcoming as of a short time ago. Earlier this year, two structures at the corner were rehabilitated, and a onetime dark spot in the neighborhood now shines brightly.
3201 through 3211 Lafayette were a series of boarded up commercial/mixed-use buildings. Below is a BEFORE shot of the buildings from Geo St. Louis, starting with 3201 Lafayette on the east and going west to 3211 Lafayette.
Today, taken together, the properties look like this (photo source).
The project has added five new townhouse units to the neighborhood.
