North Market Place Apartments to Receive "Most Enhanced" Award

Day 31 of “45 Days in Old North”

Further evidence that we’re not the only ones noticing the significant neighborhood transformation underway in Old North St. Louis: Landmarks Association of St. Louis will present one of their 2007 “Most Enhanced” Awards to Old North St. Louis Restoration Group and our development partners, the Regional Housing & Community Development Alliance (RHCDA), for the preservation and rehabilitation of 9 historically significant but crumbling buildings in ONSL.

With all of the good rehab working going on throughout St. Louis, why would Landmarks Association select the North Market Place Apartments for this honor? Consider the before and after pictures for the buildings at 1436-1440 Monroe and 1211-1215 North Market:

Above: 1436 Monroe was collapsing into the street before the partnership of ONSLRG and RHCDA initiated the historic rehab of the building and the abandoned and crumbling building next door at 1440 Monroe.
Above: 1436 and 1440 Monroe are now beautifully restored as apartments - and home to six families.

Above: 1211-1215 North Market was a burned-out shell that hardly anybody believed could be saved.
Above: 1211-1215 North Market is once again an example of ONSL’s unique and attractive housing stock - and home to three families.
Please join us in celebrating these achievements as we receive the “Most Enhanced” Award on Monday, May 14. The ceremony and reception will take place from 5:30 to 7 p.m. at Lucas School House, 1220 Allen. Advanced registration is available by sending a check for $15 to Landmarks Association, 917 Locust, 7th Floor, St. Louis, MO 63101. The at-door cost is $25 per person.
