New Life in the Ville

By on November 14, 2017

From NextSTL:  One of the city’s truly great neighborhoods is seeing reinvestment after decades of neglect. Plans for 43 new and renovated housing units in the Ville will be one step closer to fruition once the city’s Planning Commission approves zoning changes this Wednesday. Northside Community Housing is partnering with Rise Community Development on the $10.3 million development at North Sarah and St. Ferdinand Ave about half a mile north of McCormack Baron Salazar’s successful North Sarah redevelopment.

A rendering shows a proposed new construction four-family building. The two- story units each will have a separate entrance along N. Sarah, three bedrooms, two bathrooms, plus off-street parking in back. Next door, Northside Community Housing will renovate the vacant Star Laundry building. That building will include a ground-floor leasing office and community space with additional residential units upstairs. Additional housing will extend down St. Ferdinand to the east for a total of nine new and three renovated buildings. The project is financed with support from Missouri Housing Development Commission Low Income Housing Tax Credits.
