The trend toward repurposing commercial buildings in St. Louis for apartments continues. A redevelopment plan for the former American Eagle Credit Union at 4650 Hampton in the city’s Southampton neighborhood would be converted to 15 apartments.

Projects such as 4242 Lindell (as well as 3744 Lindell, and 4100 Lindell), are following the many historic rehabs, and transformation of many prior school buildings (Mack Lofts and Lafayette School, St. Pius V, and others) to meet the demand for housing in the city.

From the City of St. Louis Planning Commission meeting:

Summary Submittal: Proposed amendment of the Zoning District Map 1) by petition for Planning Commission review and recommendation and 2) for Planning Commission initiation and recommendation.Site: 1.40-acre site, consisting of 2 parcels — 4650 Hampton Ave. and 4601-21 Sulphur Ave. — located along or near Hampton Ave. in the Southampton neighborhood. Proposal: Rezoning

Site: 1.40-acre site, consisting of 2 parcels — 4650 Hampton Ave. and 4601-21 Sulphur Ave. — located along or near Hampton Ave. in the Southampton neighborhood.Proposal: Rezoning

Proposal: Rezoning the 4650 Hampton Ave. parcel from the “A” Single-Family Dwelling District and “F” Neighborhood Commercial District to the “F” Neighborhood Commercial District only. PDA staff proposes the initiation of rezoning for the adjacent parcel, 4601-21 Sulphur Ave., to the same zoning district, “F” Neighborhood Commercial District.Land Use:

Land Use: The 4650 Hampton Ave. parcel is currently occupied by a vacant commercial building and related parking lot. The 4601-21 Sulphur Ave. parcel is occupied by Carrollton Bank and related parking lot. The petitioner of the 4650 Hampton Ave. parcel is proposing to convert the vacant commercial building into a 15- unit apartment building. As currently zoned, the more restrictive regulations of the “A” zoning district apply and the development project would not be allowed. The proposed rezoning would allow for the development project to be in compliance with the provisions of the Zoning Code. The proposed initiation of rezoning for the 4601-21 Sulphur Ave. parcel would result in this parcel having a single zoning district that would reflect its current use and eliminate potential dual zoning-related complications in the future.Petitioner: SOHA Lofts, LLC, which is the owner of the 4650 Hampton Ave. parcel.

Petitioner: SOHA Lofts, LLC, which is the owner of the 4650 Hampton Ave. parcel.

Support Letter: Submitted by Alderwoman Donna Baringer (16th Ward) for the 4650 Hampton Ave. parcel.

Intent of Initiation: The proposed initiation of rezoning for the 4601-21 Sulphur Ave. parcel would result in this parcel having a single zoning district that would reflect its current use and eliminate potential dual zoning-related complications in the future.

Recommended Action: That the Planning Commission finds the petition for the proposed Zoning District Map amendment for one parcel located in City Block 5753.05 — 4650 Hampton Ave. — to be in conformity with the City’s Strategic Land Use Plan and recommends approval to the City’s Board of Aldermen.

PDA staff recommends that the Planning Commission find the rezoning of the adjacent parcel, 4601-21 Sulphur Ave., to be in conformity with the City’s Strategic Land Use Plan and initiates and recommends the change in zoning to the City’s Board of Aldermen.
