Clayton Development Review 2018

As 2017 has come to an end it’s time to review what’s going on in downtown Clayton and what’s in the queue for 2018. Clayton may be a small city of just 16,500 residents condensed within a quaint 2.5 square miles but don’t let this those modest figures fool you.

    Great overview… could you give us a breakdown of Centene 1… how big is the Hanley tower and is it all office? will residential be later, etc? (Also, I have to quibble with the claim Clayton has the most development per capita in the Midwest as I hear an outhouse is being built in Champ,)

  • John

    Nice summary. Great to see the investments and development activity in the St. Louis regional area. I am interested to see what’s in store for the future.

  • David Hoffman

    The School District of Clayton certainly benefits from this infrastructure. The rich get richer. Clayton is the county seat for St. Louis County. It seems to me that some of the property tax money should be dispersed to poorer districts in the county.

    • Bob Sacamento

      It seems to me that David Hoffman doesn’t understand what infrastructure is or how property taxes work.

      • David Hoffman

        I know exactly what infrastructure is and how property taxes work. I just believe it’s an unfair system. It benefits the wealthy at the expense of the poor.

        • Bob Sacamento

          Well then David, you understand that the County does get a percentage of those property taxes and does re-distribute that wealth throughout the County (in theory). You also understand then, that private property improvements, such as you know, every example in the article, are just that. Private property, not infrastructure.

          Aww, it’s not fair? Tell us more about your socialist ideals, David.

          • David Hoffman

            The other County school districts, of which I was speaking, do NOT receive money from property taxes in Clayton. I don’t believe that’s fair, I also don’t believe it’s socialist to think so. But I’m not discussing this with you any further since you resort to childishness in your responses. Have a nice day.

          • Bob Sacamento

            Should those poor county school districts receive tax revenue every time a new Mc mansion is built in Chesterfield too? I mean, let’s be fair and all.

            And I don’t think its fair that NYC sees billions of dollars of development each year and doesn’t send any of those tax revenues to the Wellston School District either.

          • jhoff1257

            You moved those goal posts so far I can’t even see them anymore.

          • Bob Sacamento

            How’s that? Chesterfield is in the County too isn’t it? Last time I checked they haven’t moved themselves to St. Charles County like their Mayor wants.
