      brilliant website. thanks, reg.

      what's the likelihood of the Century building being torn down?

      that would be a disgrace...

      but par for the STL course..

          Good memory Reggie. That was from well over a year ago I think.

            the last time I really got a chance to drive around St. Louis was in November, and if you've been away for awhile, especially living in a place like Las Vegas, the architecture and the BRICK stuns you with its elegance and design beauty. It makes you think, wow, St. Louis is a GREAT unique city!

            It would be horrendous, unforgivable if St. Louis trashes that.

              I acquired that site about 2 years ago,also like the North St.Louis section.

              Unfortunately a lot of St. Louis' architectural heritage(i.e.stained glass windows,
              carved wood millwork)has ended up on the west coast.

              Any other Architects on this board?

              I wish I had acquired one of those houses around Layfayette Sq. 30 years ago
              when they were being offered in the Urban Homestedding program.Anything like
              that going on at Hyde Park?

                what do you mean by urban homestedding? if you are looking for abatements you can do that pretty much anywhere.

                they are desperate for people in hyde park and old north st. louis (which is where i'm seriously considering going

                    SLU,

                    Urban Homesteading provided physically standing homes,that were no longer producing tax income,to qualified people.The cost was $1 but the person had to
                    pledge to restore the property in 3 years or loose it.There were some fine old
                    homes being offered.The homes would be assessed and become tax producing
                    properties.
                    I don't know if this program still exists but I'm sure there must be something
                    involved in Hyde Park to bring derelict homes up to Tax producing status.I would
                    also check the HUD roles for foreclosures.It's a lot of work but if the neighborhood
                    becomes gentrified in 20 years you could end up with a house worth 100's of
                    thousands of dollars and your expense would have been sweat equity.

                        That's an awesome site, thanks!

                        Downtown Dallas makes me appreciate downtown St. Louis even more. This city has little history and few notable buildings over 50 years old. Some of the newer buildings are very nice, but it's a very different feel to the city.
