I will get those links shortly. Thanks for participating.
He was a famous architect in st.louis that designed a few lavish mansions in st louis, universities around the country but most of all he designed st louis' union station. He also has a star on the st louis walk of fame.Anybody know any other interesting facts about him?
No,im not saying that. Im saying that Hyde Park is included in Old North aswell as windsor park. Windsor park is only 3 streets over. I am saying that Windsor park is a rough cutoff for old north. That being said there is alot that needs to be done in that part of old north. The area is only as strong as its weakest link. Until that area starts seeing significant changes it will be a long road. I like the Work bosley Sr. is doing on salibury and i hope he is able to complete the theatre and history center next door. Hyde park is the backbone of the neighborhood.We'll see what happens next. Im not talking about bosley estates.

what do you think.
Alot of good developments have happened in the area. 14th street mall being one and habitat. There are a few streets like park place that have stayed intact. since you grew up in that neighborhood youve been to piekutowski's, nice place. I would like to see them get the old factories out of the area. there are also alot of really nice rehabs around the mall.
That area has not made a full comeback. You can go down the streets like blair, newhouse , angelica and many more.and you will see plenty of homes that need to be torn down. There are whole blocks of houses that cannot be lived in. I would say that st louis LRA probaly owns 70% of the houses in that area. The area you are speaking of were habitat is building homes is one section of old north st louis. To say that the entire area has come back is not true. Blocks away from the development you are speaking of are vacant new homes that the builder jumped ship on. Just sitting there with broken windows. The Bremen theatre has recently drawn some attention by efforts to restore it but nothing has happened. They only 6 months ago cleaned up where the nord st louis turnvein sat. that sat there for year as a big pile of bricks. Remeber old north st louis goes as far as windsor park. Im rooting for the area, but it has a long way to go.
Has anyone been paying attention to the development of Old North St. Louis. How do you feel about paul Mckees Plan?Or the work that has already been done? Do you think that area can make a comeback?Hyde Park,Windsor Park,Dick Gregory Place,salisbury etc.in the area around crown candy.
That is a good question but there are 2 major players involved, St. Louis City for the debalivere strip and St. Louis County with the loop. That situation probaly requires some strategic thinking to make it work. Im happy to see them bring the route back. Most people dont know it is called the loop because a trolley car looped thru there.
