Southtowne Apartments Project in Dutchtown Underway (Delor and Spring)

The Southtowne Apartments project in Dutchtown at Delor and Spring is well underway.

A February 5, 2013 article in the St. Louis Post Dispatch’s Building Blocks blog has the details:

Underway in south St. Louis is redevelopment of the Southtowne Apartments, a complex on South Spring Avenue near St. Mary’s High School.

The St. Louis Regional Housing and Community Development Alliance and the Dutchtown South Community Corp. are doing the $9 million project jointly. Some redone apartments will be available this month. When completed, Southtowne will have 40 rehabbed units and 11 new apartments.

RHCDA, a non-profit housing developer, is reconfiguring the site by demolishing 15 buildings, rehabilitating the remaining 10 and constructing six new buildings. The result will be 51 one-, two- and three-bedroom apartments and a management office.

Below are recent photographs of a portion of the site.image
