Aldine Place, Destroyed in Part by Irresponsible Land Speculation

Update: As of the summer of 2021, all of the abandoned buildings have been demolished.

I covered this block years ago, and reported on how reckless speculation left these buildings abandoned. It is just trashed around here, right by a major intersection like MLK Dr and Kingshighway.

    This style of apartment building is quite common across the city and the older parts of st Louis county. Is there a story behind these buildings and why it is so common?

    This is a common apartment style in a lot of cities. They usually have a center hallway, 2 or 4 flats on each above ground floor, and some combination of flats, mechanicals, storage, and laundry facilities in the basement level.
