Fountain Park, Early July 2018

Fountain Park is such a beautiful little neighborhood, directly north of the Central West End, but possessing the exact same housing stock of its more wealthy neighborhood to the south.

There are well preserved buildings, and then there are complete disasters such as this unique building below, which conforms to the gentle curve of the elliptical park from which the neighborhood gets its name.

What is the neighborhood’s future? Probably largely it rests on what the financial markets desire it to be, as the city’s government has no plan.

  1. I will never forgive Titsworth Properties (whoever they are) for landbanking that corner building and failing to do anything with it. It’s easily one of the most beautiful structures in North City and it may have to be just torn down when all is said and done. What would it even cost to rehab a building like that? $3 million? $5 million? I’d do it if I could.

    • It would be extremely expensive. And yes, I would jump at the opportunity if I had the money, as well.

    • This is NOT NORTH ST LOUIS. The area is HISTORICALLY the WEST END. I get SO SICK and tired of WHITES and the Media calling ALL NEIGHBORHOODS NORTH OF DELMAR NORTH CITY. HISTORICALLY IT’S THE WEST END. THE PEOPLE WHOM LIVE THERE DO NOT REFER TO THEIR NEIGHBORHOOD AS NORTH ST LOUIS. SINCE THE AREA HAS BEEN LEFT TO ROT BY ST LOUIS’ RACIST POWERS AND “REDLINING” the Media especially is guilty of renaming the AREA. Remember there was” NO SUCH AREA NAMED THE CENTRAL WEST END BEFORE THE MID 1980’S the entire AREA was the WEST END WHICH “HISTORICALLY ENDED AT NATURAL BRIDGE AVENUE”. THIS IS YET ANOTHER EXAMPLE OF ST LOUIS’ RACIST AND NON PROGRESSIVE WAYS.

      • INTERESTING…YOU SAID THE SAME THING AS THE MAY 2 POST “Euclid avenue fountain park”
