Notably, the construction faces the sidewalk and is flush with the corner, helping to add to the cozy “Main Street” feel of South Broadway.

If plans go accordingly, another brand new, 82-unit building will be added to their portfolio.

An STLToday.com article from September 2011 (presumed still current) has more details.
The Southtowne Apartments project in Dutchtown at Delor and Spring is well underway.
Underway in south St. Louis is redevelopment of the Southtowne Apartments, a complex on South Spring Avenue near St. Mary’s High School.
The St. Louis Regional Housing and Community Development Alliance and the Dutchtown South Community Corp. are doing the $9 million project jointly. Some redone apartments will be available this month. When completed, Southtowne will have 40 rehabbed units and 11 new apartments.
RHCDA, a non-profit housing developer, is reconfiguring the site by demolishing 15 buildings, rehabilitating the remaining 10 and constructing six new buildings. The result will be 51 one-, two- and three-bedroom apartments and a management office.
Below are recent photographs of a portion of the site.
