Tuesday LCRA: Blighting for 115-Unit Apartment Development in Soulard

Pierre Laclede StatueLand Clearance for Redevelopment Authority
3 pm Tuesday, May 24th
1520 Market #2000 (City Hall West)

Agenda 

#4 on Agenda is blighting designation for 721 Victor & 2403-15 S 7TH Area. This is the 5-story, 115 Unit, 89 onsite parking spaces redevelopment project in Soulard

There is way too little onsite parking planned for this project. At least 1/3 of the units will have more than one car. Current residents of the area already share street parking with South Broadway Athletic Club at 2301 S 7th (used on Saturdays for the popular Soulard 7th Street Antique and Vintage Market), D’s Place at 900 Barton, Good Luck Bar & Grill at 2501 S 9th, and Humboldt School at 2516 S 9th.

Sorry for the late notice on this. I found the LCRA agenda by accident. You cannot get to it via City’s online Calendar. The agenda link was bad as of 10 pm Tonight (Monday, May 23).

error

This happens a lot with public meeting notices and agendas.
