The $10 million Bremen Homes development in the city’s Hyde Park neighborhood is well underway. Developer Better Living Communities is constructing 40 new housing units in the neighborhood, most of them in a cluster at the intersection of North 22nd Street and Mallinckrodt Street. More information on the development may be found here.
Below are two pictures showing representative streetscapes in the new development, the entirety of which was built on vacant lots.
There are two story models similar to Better Living Communities’ previous waves of construction in the western part of Hyde Park:
And there are low-slung, single-story models new to the neighborhood:
A mixed use building at 1426 Salisbury in the Hyde Park neighborhood has been fully rehabbed as a part of the Hyde Park South Development.
The project cost was over $715,000. Across the street, the mixed use building at 1435 Salisbury was also fully rehabbed and has been profiled on this blog.
Below is a recent photograph of the rehabbed structure:
And here is a Geo St. Louis photograph showing the building prior to rehab:
The hulking mixed use building at the corner of Blair and Salisbury in the Hyde Park neighborhood has been fully restored as a part of the Hyde Park South Development by developers Duffe Nuernberger. Overall, 50 new units have been created in 26 gut rehabbed buildings. The subject of this post—1435 Salisbury—was the largest single project of the bunch and the most iconic.
Below is a recent photograph of the recently completed rehab:
Here is a Google Streetview capture from August 2011, showing the previous state of the front facade:
For years the building sat open and un-boarded, leading to significant deterioration. Below is a shot from Geo St. Louis showing the building in 2007:
The rehabbed structure will house 1 large commercial space on the ground floor and 5 residential units.
Bremen Homes, a development of 30 single family homes and 10 duplexes in the Hyde Park neighborhood, has received its necessary building permits and will presumably begin construction soon. The project is being developed by Better Living Communities and ND Properties. This project is part of a larger, multi-phase Salisbury Park development that has changed the face of the western half of Hyde Park with several waves of new construction.
The Bremen Homes will be clustered on three streets—North 22nd, North 23rd, and Mallinckrodt.
Below is a Google Streetview shot of previous homes constructed by Better Living Communities. These homes are on 25th Street a few blocks north and west of the Bremen Homes development site. Note that we do not have a rendering of the Bremen Homes project at this time, but that the homes may be similar to these shown below:
More information on Bremen Homes may be found on the 3rd Ward’s website.
When we receive renderings, we will post them here.
Three four-family structures in Hyde Park have been rehabbed as a part of the Hyde Park South Development. The structure at 2018-20 Mallinckrodt was rehabbed for $600,000; 2022-24 was rehabbed for $497,000; and 2026-28 was rehabbed for $497,000. Each structure is now a three-family.
Below is a recent photograph of 2018-20 Mallinckrodt:
And here is a photograph of 2022-24 and 2026-28 Mallinckrodt:
Below is a Google Streetview shot of all three buildings prior to rehab (in Fall 2011):
The two family structure at 2009 Mallinckrodt in the Hyde Park neighborhood has been rehabbed into a single family as a part of the Hyde Park South Development. The permit amount was $350,000.
Below is a photograph from June 4, 2012, showing the rehab nearly completed, from the project’s website.
And here is a before shot, from Geo St. Louis:
The single family structure at 1915 Destrehan in the Hyde Park neighborhood has been rehabbed at a cost of $175,000. The structure was one of 26 being rehabilitated as a part of the multi-million dollar Hyde Park South development. (The building’s onetime dilapidated neighbor to the east, visible in the photo at right, is being rehabbed, too).
Below is a shot from the project website, dated 6/4/12:
Geo St. Louis provides a before shot:
While this blog has paid a lot of attention to the ongoing Hyde Park South Development in the eastern portion of the neighborhood, the recently completed Eliot School Apartments (PDF MAP) development has restored 21 buildings (39 units total) in the western portion of Hyde Park.
This post will profile the buildings completed under the project. The editors will add to this post on a regular basis until all properties are shown. Please bookmark the post if you would like to follow this development. All photographs are from Geo St. Louis unless otherwise noted.

The former four-family building at 1529-31 Mallinckrodt in Hyde Park is being rehabbed into a two-family as a part of the Hyde Park South redevelopment.
Like many of the 26 properties receiving full rehabs as a part of that project, 1529-31 Mallinckrodt was heavily deteriorated. The rear portion of the building appeared as if it was not far from collapse.
Below are two snapshots from Google Streetview in October 2011.
And the rear:
Clearly this building was in dire straits.
But $530,000 can go a long way.
Here is a photograph of the facade of the structure dated 6/4/12 showing that the entire second floor brickwork, including the cornice, were removed and relaid.
It it incredible that Hyde Park will retain this historic resource considering the damage it had sustained.
The Second Empire-style building at 3615-17 Blair in the Hyde Park neighborhood is being rehabbed as a part of the 50-unit, multi-million dollar Hyde Park South development.
Below is a photograph of the building from 4/30/2012.
Google Streetview captures the condition of the structure prior to rehabilitation work, in October 2011:
