A three townhome project at 1323-39 Monroe Street in Old North St. Louis is nearing completion. The 3BD, 2.5BA homes are listed for $155K by Rome West Realty. The three corner lots are three blocks south of the 14th Street project and Crown Candy Kitchen, the urban center of Old North. The neighborhood saw an incredible 27.7% population increase, gaining 416 residents from 2000 to 2010.However, momentum then slowed as the economy faltered, and the big idea, the $4B, 1,500-acre NorthSide Regeneration plan immediately to the neighborhood’s west, never got off the ground.

However, momentum then slowed as the economy faltered, and the big idea, the $4B, 1,500-acre NorthSide Regeneration plan immediately to the neighborhood’s west, never got off the ground. Now two-thirds of the way through this decade, the $2B NGA headquarters project and planned or hoped-for nearby development may return growth to the area. In the meantime, project like this one offer an affordable option and quality infill to an area with high vacancy.

    I love this neighborhood. Are there any neighborhoods in STL that offer river access? I’ve done some exploring in car, but it seems they’re all cut off by industry. If not cut off by industrial gating and railroads, there are parks at MS river’s edge (Arch grounds, Riverview). Would be nice if we could have an option to live near/ on the river.

      Don’t some of those condos and houses on the east side of south Broadway look over the river? I believe there are some bluffs there that prevent the area from flooding. The stretch of Broadway beginning around the 4500 block is very close to the river. Not much housing, but there is some.

      I wish a developer with vision would look to Laclede’s Landing for such an idea. It is a sad, sad place right now — but the building’s are great and seemingly could be converted into condos/lofts and street-level stores for residents. It could be a miniature version of Brooklyn’s DUMBO neighborhood, but with slightly less-stellar views.

    An attractive, if modest, facade design is marred by the awning-like roof over the entrance.

      Stay tuned for changes.

    This is encouraging news! I like the floor plans, and they appear to be a nice addition to the neighborhood. I wish they could feature brick, but overall, this small growth in new residential units is positive. I hope they will plant some shrubbery landscaping, and add more curbside trees, please!

    These look really nice, and I think the use of modular building materials is really cool. I am glad to hear that more development is coming to Old North Saint Louis. 14th St. has good vibes that would be awesome to expand upon in the future. Keep it up!
