Permit Issued to Relocate Home in NGA Footprint at 2530 N. Market

The story of the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency’s move to north St. Louis City has been unfolding for years. The moveĀ and a new $1.7B+ high-security headquarters is a done deal, but a lot will happen between now and then.

While relocation, demolition, and remediation is underway, one permit caught our eye. February 7 a $245,000 permit was issued for the relocation of a 2,700sf 1894 home at 2530 North Market Street. Image below is by Todd Genteman:

The home is located approximately where the entrance to the new NGA (shown in red below) is shown on marketing materials prepared by the city. It’s unknown if the final NGA project will follow or resemble the released images. The home is being moved from 2530 N. Market to 2200 St. Louis Avenue.
