Update: All of the trees and underbrush were cleared by Northside in 2017 for a supposed three-bed hospital that was never built.
I’m not sure what the plan is for the Pruitt-Igoe site, other than there the plan is to have no plan.
While tentatively part of the Northside development, there has been little movement on that project, so the site is left to bud and blossom for yet another summer.
The old roads that cut through the housing project are still here, and they create alleyways of trees that are slowly being subsumed by nature.
It would be interesting to study the plant life of the site, right in the middle of the city.
