Checking In On Old North, “Post-McKee”

Update: See the house in the pictures above and below in the winter of 2019. The house was demolished by July of 2019. Its roof collapsed in 2014.

Yes, there is a house in there, hidden by the giant volunteer trees. It’s owned by Paul McKee’s Northside TIF, and he was supposed to have divested himself of his Old North properties years ago (but never did).

There’s also this incredibly rare alley house still standing nearby.

But many properties are owned by the LRA, which means they are available for purchase by qualified homebuyers. These are some beautiful apartment buildings that could renovated as gut-rehabs.

    Hi Chris, have you done anything on 1527 Palm Street? It was my great-grandmother Louis Kayser Lowell’s home. She was gifted it along with 5 other homes in that block by her father on her wedding day in 1903. She was married at Holy Trinity Church. See Post-Dispatch article.

      I can look into it! It looks like it has been demolished, unfortunately.
