  • 4831-37 Fountain Ave:
    This storefront at Fountain and Bayard Ave, on the edge of Fountain Park, was built in 1897 in the Queen Anne style. The Fountain Park neighborhood was originally laid out by John Lay in 1857 as the Aubert Place subdivision and it was plotted with an oval shaped park at the center. In 1889, the land was given to the city, and it was renamed Fountain Park, after the placement of an elaborately designed fountain in the center of the park. When houses and buildings were constructed in the 1890s, they were made to align with the curvature of the street. The storefront building has a turret at each end, and the facade follows the oval shaped curvature of Fountain Park. For decades, the building had a first floor storefront that had several different tenants, and the upper floors were used as apartments. The neighborhood began to decline in the 1960s after redlining to the north of Delmar devalued many formerly wealthy neighborhoods. While most of the houses around Fountain Park survived this decline and remained occupied, this building was abandoned by the early 1990s, and has sat vacant ever since. A $4.5 million project has been proposed by people in the community but has faced issues with gathering the necessary funding. .

    We we're delightfully joined by Pastor Troy, who is block captain and was patrolling the neighborhood. He said there is interest for reuse as a community center (Facebook Pastor Troy's handy man)

  • Finally got to try what Food & Wine magazine ranked as one of “The Best Bites in America”! W O R T H I T! Selfishly though, can’t wait for the excitement to die down so they don’t sell out so quickly!

  • Landmarks Urbanites spent yesterday morning showing our love for several #stl buildings that seriously need some. In Fountain Park, we met Pastor Troy, who is a lifelong resident and is rehabbing a neighborhood church. He took a break from his neighborhood watch rounds to get some photos with us.
    4831-37 Fountain Avenue, is being worked on very slowly by an owner that has great intentions, but not enough capitol to do it all at once.
    The gorgeous pair of Second Empire 2135-37 St. Louis Avenue on "Millionaires Row" has been vacant many years and the 3rd floor roof structure is showing signs of partial collapse, so an intervention is needed here very soon. They are privately owned, fortunately not by McKee or they would probably already be gone.
    1907 Bremen, another Second Empire built in 1870 and fronting on Hyde Park has been owned by the LRA since 2003, so it's available for someone to rehab!!
    While the threat of demolition from eminent domain by the VA seems to currently not be an imminent threat, the future of the Palladium, which was home to the Plantation Club in the 1940s-50s, is still very uncertain. Located at the north edge of @grandcenterartsdistrict, which has seen many large historic rehabs in the last decade, it has great potential!
    Our last stop, the Ittner designed former Central High School (built as Yeatman High School in 1902), also has great potential for redevelopment despite the fact that St. Louis Public Schools has let it deteriorate after vandals stole the windows, copper domes, etc. A proposal for affordable apartments went unfunded due to Missouri politicians deciding to hold affordable housing allocations hostage.
    Unfortunately due to time constraints and location logistics, we did not get out to the Shanley Building in Clayton, but we will be watching this one!
