Demo Alert: 4534-56 Manchester

The Grim Reaper has been spotted on the 4500 block of Manchester in the Forest Park Southeast neighborhood. Demolition permits have been pulled for 4534, 4358, 4540, 4544, 4552, and 4556 Manchester. The buildings are owned by Grove Properties. The vacant lot at 4542 is owned by the LRA and presumably would be acquired for a new development. The seven parcels have about 200 feet of frontage on Manchester. The vacant lot at 4560 and the building at 4568 are owned by an LLC with an address in the CWE. The properties are in a preservation review district so will go to the Cultural Resources Office and perhaps before the Preservation Board.

Grove properties has done numerous rehabs in the neighborhood as well as the new condo building at 4101 Laclede. As we learn more, we’ll pass it on.
