Southside Getting in the Game
While much deserved attention is being paid to the amazing progress happening in downtown St. Louis, watch for more and more good news to start coming out of the Dutchtown area of South City.
The historic commercial corridors of South Grand, Cherokee, Meramec and Virginia are places to watch.
The historic Virginia Mansion, once slated for demolition, has a condo conversion plan. Cherokee is turning into a burgeoning new arts district. And the state's largest histoic district is attracting developers.
Urban scale infill projects are happening through community-based initiatives. And its all happening in a historic, affordable, diverse city neighborhood.
