WHO WE ARE
To help promote and guide the further redevelopment of Midtown, Saint Louis University and SSM Health worked with the City of St. Louis to develop the St. Louis Midtown 353 Redevelopment Plan (the “Redevelopment Plan”), which was adopted by Ordinance 70428 and became effective on March 21, 2017.
The Redevelopment Plan is administered by the St. Louis Midtown Redevelopment Corporation, organized under the Urban Redevelopment Corporations Law of Missouri, whose shareholders are Saint Louis University and SSM Health. One of the key responsibilities of the Redevelopment Corporation is to serve as an “umbrella redeveloper” tasked with overseeing and facilitating development efforts within the Redevelopment Area. To that end, the Redevelopment Corporation will review and approve plans for construction and rehabilitation of improvements within the Redevelopment Area to ensure that these projects comply with and further the goals of the Redevelopment Plan.
The Redevelopment Plan covers an approximately 400 acre area (the “Redevelopment Area”) generally bounded by 39th Street, Spring Avenue and Vandeventer Avenue on the west; Compton Avenue on the east; Laclede Avenue and Interstate 64 on the north; and Park Avenue and Interstate 44 on the south.
BOARD AND STAFF
The St. Louis Midtown Redevelopment Corporation is led by a dedicated Board of Directors and Staff, whom are targeted with overseeing the District and fostering new investment that can build on the core of existing institutions.
