In an interesting update by nextSTL, we have learned that the Harris Armstrong building that we just talked about here it going to be demolished and a 4-unit townhome will be built in it’s place.
I generally am happy to see new developments, especially considering that it will put $3.6M into the area, but I always hate to see significant buildings destroyed. As you may read in the article below, the building has suffered from water damage and was unlikely to make a recovery without a full rehab.
Anyway, please take a look at the nextSTL article below to see more about the plans for the site.
A request to re-zone this site was stopped short of being sent to the Clayton Board of Aldermen. The city’s planning staff recommended the Plan Commission approve the re-zoning, which would have cleared the way for the city’s aldermen to approve the development. The Plan Commission decided against sending it to the BoA.
