Botanical Heights Home to be Rehabbed (4327 McRee)

A two-family home located at 4327 McRee in the Botanical Heights/McRee Town neighborhood may soon be rehabbed into a single family at a cost of $135,000. A permit application is on file with the City, though the building permit has not yet been issued. City records show the owner to be UIC/Tower Grove Mews. UIC has revitalized the 4200 block of McRee (one block to the east) with several new homes and historic rehabs and has begun improving all adjacent blocks, including 4300 McRee.

The UIC office has relocated to the recently-opened Tower Grove Mews development, moving just a few yards down from their old office at 4301 McRee. UIC principals Brent Crittenden and Sarah Gibson have constructed their new contemporary home on the 4300 block of McRee, right next to the proposed rehab of 4327 McRee.
