Fifty-one single family market rate houses and townhomes are planned for the Vandeventer neighborhood. Located just a few blocks North of Delmar and two blocks west of Grand, phase I of the development will include 43 lots on the 3900-4000 blocks of C.D. Banks and Finney.
Plans show a modern design with large vertical front facing windows, side entry and variations of three different types of veneer on the front. The homes are approximately 2,000sqft each, with an open floor plan, 3 bedrooms and 2.5 baths. All units will be energy efficient and have either a detached or attached garage. Upgrade packages include flooring, lighting, and options for decks and rooftop patios are available.
Developer/contractor Ken Hutchinson with VIP Construction said “This is a continuation of the North Sarah project. We want to jump start the single family housing market by bringing a new style of housing to the area. The homes are less than a mile from Cortex, SLU, Grand Center, and the NGA. We want to see more growth and movement north. This is about pushing the envelope and uniting the city.”
These homes will be the first market rate, new construction, single family residences built in the Vandeventer Neighborhood since Vandeventer Place was demolished in 1947. Another sign that St. Louis is finally beginning to bridge the Delmar Divide. See our story from yesterday: Breaking down the Delmar Divide.
Remax City Wide Group is responsible for marketing the homes which will be priced from $180,000-$250,000 based on home style and upgrades. 1% down conventional loans are available and all homes include a 15 year Tax Abatement.
Ground breaking is scheduled for next Tuesday, September 26th.
