Rehabbers & Developers Fair THIS SATURDAY, Sept. 20

Come find out how you or your favorite rehabber can get started on a rehab project in Old North! This Saturday, ONSLRG will host our second Old North St. Louis - LRA Rehabbers’ Fair from 9 a.m. - 12 noon.

The event will focus on acquiring and developing property currently owned by the City’s Land Reutilization Authority and located in the Old North St. Louis neighborhood . Please note that Saturday’s program will NOT be held at ONSLRG’s office but at 1400 North Market Street, St. Louis, MO 63106. (Click on this address for a link to a Mapquest map of the location and the option of getting directions to that address from any other location.) The site of Saturday’s program was once a vacant and burned-out LRA property that was rehabbed in 2006.

On Saturday, you will be able to learn:
▪ How to purchase property from LRA;
▪ What loan products are available for gut renovations;
▪ The financial incentives to renovating LRA properties in Old North;
▪ The lessons learned from people who have gone through – or are in the midst of - the process;
▪ Which LRA property is available in Old North.

A tour of some available LRA properties will conclude the Fair. All attendees will receive a packet including a map of the neighborhood, a list of available LRA properties, the forms necessary for submitting an offer for LRA properties, and more.

Seating is limited, so please RSVP to Karen Heet, Real Estate Development Coordinator, at 314-241-5031 or by Wednesday, September 17th.

We want to ensure that we’ll have enough copiesof the handouts, so contact Karen soon to let her know you’ll be coming.Just last month, the LRA Commission approved extending an option to rehabbers who will be taking on the buildings above, at 1946 and 1948-50 Palm. Meanwhile, the former LRA building below on N. 19th Street is partially occupied and well on its way to completion.
