According to the latest City Journal, an industrial property located at 2400-08 S. 9th Street in Soulard may be rehabbed into multi-family units, if approved by City Zoning.

Forest Park Southeast’s Station G Building May Soon See Rehab into 11 Apartments

The Station G Building (4427 Chouteau) on the old gasometer site in Forest Park Southeast may soon see an $800,000 rehab into 11 apartments. A permit was applied for by developer Station G LLC on November 15, 2012. It has not yet been issued.

Below is a photograph of Station G from nextSTL. Click here for an earlier nextSTL story showing that the Station G building was once threatened with demolition.

The building is the last remnant of Laclede Gas’s presence of the site. Click here (Built St. Louis) to see pictures of the old gasometer structure that once loomed above both Station G and Interstate 64/40.

The remaining Station G building will be entirely surrounded by the 101-unit Aventura at Forest Park development, which is progressing quickly. Per this July 2012 St. Louis Post-Dispatch article, Aventura developers sought to control this building as well but could not agree on a price. It is likely that the building would have then been demolished as well.

Benton Park Development Entering Third Phase (2900 Indiana Condos)

The 2900 Indiana Condos Development at the corner of Pestalozzi and Indiana in Benton Park is progressing into its third phase.

The third and final phase of this multi-building development will see the rehab of a vacant single family home at 2910 Indiana, which is adjacent to two buildings already rehabbed in prior phases (one former mixed use and one former industrial building).

A $100,000 building permit has been issued for the rehab of 2910 Indiana, shown below via Google Streetview in July 2011:

Below are shots of the already completed buildings, also from Google Streetview. The first phase involved the rehab of the corner mixed use building at 2900 Indiana. It is now entirely residential.

The second phase involved the rehab of an industrial building with two garages, which have been retained. The building is now completed and also fully residential, though it was not yet finished in this July 2011 Google Streetview capture:

The units in the above building were recently finished and are now for sale. Below is a small photograph of the exterior of the building fully rehabbed from a unit’s real estate listing.

More information on this development is available via the St. Louis Real Estate Society’s blog.

3520 Oregon in Gravois Park Restored

Completed last year, the $115,000 rehab of 3520 Oregon in Gravois Park by Neighborhood Enterprises Inc. saw the conversion of a two family to a single family.
