The proposed $8 million redevelopment of the Gerhart Block at the eastern edge of the Central West End neighborhood that was announced in February of this year may include the neighboring property at 3910-12 Laclede. Capstone Development is the developer. The development has a Facebook page that contains pictures of both the Gerhart Block building and the 3910-12 Laclede building.
The building at 3910-12 Laclede sports a striking black cast iron turret and would be a small neighborhood landmark were it not somewhat tucked away in a semi-industrial pocket of the City.
Below is a Google Streetview capture of the building:
The project has not officially begun (not permits have yet been issued), but it appears interior demolition is underway, as there is currently a dumpster behind the building.
