Diversified Real Estate Group has plans for five new homes located at 1216 through 1228 Dolman in the Lafayette Square Historic District. A $2 million building permit is on file with the City’s Building Division to construct the five new single family homes. The permit has not yet been issued and must be approved by Zoning since these lots are zoned C - Multiple Family Residential.
The real estate listings for four of the five lots are currently active. Click here to see one such listing while the link is still live. The homes are being marketed as 3 bed, 3 bathroom structures (around 2,100 square feet) priced in the mid-400s.
Below is the sample photo used on the real estate listing, which may be an indication of the style of construction:
Fields Foods, a full-service grocery store, is under construction across from the Old City Hospital (now the Georgian) at 1500 Lafayette in Bohemian Hill. The permit to construct the grocery store was valued at $4.1 million.
According to that site, the store will be a unique, local experience:

THE TIMING’S JUST RIGHT.
Local foods are the freshest, most nutritious, best tasting products available because we’re able offer them at the peak of vine-ripened freshness. The short travel time keeps our prices low, our food fresh and its nutritional content high. It also helps support our local economy.

And here is a rendering of the completed product, from the Fields Foods website:
A two-family building located at 1028 Dolman in the Lafayette Square Historic District (Peabody Darst Webbe neighborhood, officially speaking) is slated for a $140,000 rehabilitation, per city building permit records. The permit has not yet been issued.
Below is a recent Geo St. Louis photograph of the structure:
The row house building at 1620-24 Dolman in the Lafayette Square Historic District (Peabody Darst Webbe neighborhood) is actively under rehab. The three units are under rehabilitation for $80,000 each by Zumwalt Corporation. The last time we checked into the site, permits had not yet been issued (check out a pre-rehab photo on that blog post).
Now, work is underway. See the recent photograph below.
Long ago, the building’s southernmost member of the row (1624 Dolman) was slated for demolition due to advanced deterioration. The matter went before the Preservation Board, where the request for demolition was denied. Instead, the row of three town houses will remain intact and (most likely) occupied for the first time in quite a while.
The former Missouri Carriage Company building at 1410 Dolman has undergone a $100,000 rehab into a single family home. Mica Development essentially rebuilt the front facade and has gut rehabbed the structure.
Below is a photograph obtained from MARIS showing the completed building.
As of the time of this writing, the 4 bedroom, 3.5 bath home is for sale for $450,000. Click here for the listing, which also contains interior shots.
Geo St. Louis contains photographs of the building prior to rehab:
