45 Days in Old North: Revitalization in Progress

The next 45 days will be pivotal in the ongoing revitalization of the Old North St. Louis neighborhood. In the course of the next 45 days we will:

  • secure sufficient funds or loan commitments for the preservation of the Mullanphy Emigrant Home building (see the April 1 post);
  • welcome hundreds of volunteers from within and outside the neighborhood for the annual Operation Brightside Blitz neighborhood-wide clean-up on April 28;
  • receive a “What’s Right with the Region” Award from Focus St. Louis on May 10;
  • put the dynamic transformation of the neighborhood on display for several hundred visitors to our annual Old North St. Louis House & Community Tour on Saturday, May 12 (see flyer below - and we still have sponsorship opportunities available!);
  • enjoy a benefit concert coordinated by Landmarks Association for the Mullanphy preservation fund as part of Preservation Week, on May 16 at Christ Church Cathedral;
  • and all sorts of other exciting developments to be announced later.

So, stay tuned and check back for daily updates over the next 45 days on the comprehensive revitalization that is making Old North St. Louis a national model for sustainable urban neighborhood redevelopment.

Welcome to the Old North St. Louis Restoration Group's blog. What's New in Old North chronicles the dramatic transformation under way in the neighborhood of Old North St. Louis. As a neighborhood just north of Downtown St. Louis, Old North is becoming a dynamic urban village of new and historic homes, a landmark eating establishment, beautiful community gardens, and a diverse, friendly, and engaged community.
