The Gills to Rehab Another Mixed Use Building in the Grove (4230-34 Manchester)

The Gills to Rehab Another Mixed Use Building in the Grove (4230-34 Manchester)

Earlier this week we reported on a rehab of two adjacent buildings (4236 and 4238-40 Manchester) by Forest Park Southeast Restoration, LP, better known as Restoration St. Louis (headed by Amrit and Amy Gill).

A $700,000 building permit has now been issued for the building located just east of 4236 Manchester, addressed as 4230-34 Manchester, which is also owned by Forest Park Southeast Restoration, AKA the Gills. That means that this stretch of three adjacent buildings now have a $1.5 million rehab planned. It appears that the rehab work has already begun at 4230-34 Manchester per a site inspection this week. The building permit notes that the building will remain mixed use.

This additional rehab will leave fewer buildings on Manchester unspoken for, continuing the Grove’s recent momentum. Combined with a new mixed use building in planning at 4321 Manchester¬†and an even larger mixed used proposal at the Commerce Bank site on Manchester at Sarah, the Grove should have a happy new year indeed.

If we hear of reported commercial tenants or any other details of the development, we’ll report it here.
