via Alderman Steve Conway:
We have secured the funding to pay HUD back the acquisition price for the vacant lots on Detonty. UIC (the developer of Olio and City Garden Montessori), will now be able to develop the 16 new homes. Since securing the funding, they have now purchased the property from the City, and are now platting the property lines.
There is a mix of housing sizes and styles with the ability to have a first floor master bedroom suite. You can view the project and housing styles at www.livegreenstl.com. This project will be complimented by the two the renovation into townhouses of the decaying dinosaurs next to Sasha’s.
I would like to thank Mayor Slay’s office, CDA, Shaw Neighborhood Housing Corporation and UIC for the their efforts.
