They’re calling their venture Brick City Makes, and they want to fix up the 87,000-square-foot factory as industrial office suites for a new generation of nimble manufacturers: One-machine shops that don’t need huge warehouse footprints but may need room to grow can sign up for space in the building while they find their footing in the marketplace.


Rehabbing a building as an industrial incubator is a new venture for DeSales, a nonprofit community development corporation that has mostly stuck to housing rehabs and rental management as a way to improve the Fox Park and Tower Grove East neighborhoods where it operates.
^ sounds promising! I really like small-scale stuff like this and The Fashion Incubator. (I guess you could include T-Rex in that as well,)

We are seeing some nice growth in areas of Benton Park in just the last 6 months. My SO has friends at Gracia Properties that believe Benton Park is going to be hot as well. Good to see South City growing.
^ I might be reading this redfin thing wrong, but I assume some of the established staples like Benton Park, Tower Grove South & Shaw are "hotter" than Fox Park in terms of the housing market but that Fox Park is an "up-and-comer" poised to see the greatest gains in growth. Anyway, as you say it's great to see at least a good chunk of South City seeing some nice action.
I just bought a house in McKinley Heights for a good price that I am fixing up. I was trying desperately to get into Benton Park to do a rehab but couldn't compete with the developers. Several properties I checked out in Fox Park would also get scooped up very quickly when they hit the market.
A developer is selling 45 units. All vacant.

^ What?

NOTE: The post to which this referred has been removed.
I flagged as SPAM a few days ago, not sure if the Mods have gotten to it yet or not.
^ are you referring to improv's post? (I don't think that's spam if so.)

There was another post that I left because I didn't consider it spam. Garbled mess of unintelligible babble loosely related? Yes. But not spam. Someone else deleted it.
It also contained a term at the end that should never be used or condoned on this board.

I missed that. Doesn't matter either way at this point.

yup. the intention wasn't clear as the word was in quotes but, regardless, the post was an incoherent mess.
