NEW North St. Louis in St. Louis Commerce Magazine

Day 11 of “45 Days in Old North”

The April issue of St. Louis Commerce Magazine offers a glowing profile of ONSL with the title “The NEW North St. Louis.” The article notes that over the past 26 years, ONSLRG “evolved from an all-volunteer organization to a highly effective community development corporation with a professional staff and wide range of building activities.”
The article highlights the positive developments throughout the neighborhood, including those being implemented by ONSLRG and the Regional Housing & Community Development Alliance at North Market Place and the 14th Street Mall, as well as home rehabs undertaken by individual homeowners: “Old North St. Louis…has turned into a hot bed of renovation and restoration. Scaffolding dots the landscape as craftsmen turn shells into showcases, temporary accommodations into homes. The feel of an urban village is palpable as residents mingle with workmen and future residents explore their alternatives.”
