Properties Available for Rehabilitation
Board of Directors
The Garden District Commission (GDC) is a non-profit, community-based organization formed in 1998 to promote neighborhood revitalization in Botanical Heights (formerly McRee Town), Shaw, Tiffany, and Southwest Garden. The GDC is governed by a board of directors made up of a diverse cross section of these communities and includes institutional and neighborhood leaders.
As its first order of business the GDC spearheaded an extensive community-based planning process in which residents from all four GDC neighborhoods participated. The major goal that resulted from this process was for the GDC to initiate a redevelopment plan in the McRee Town neighborhood. With the support from the GDC neighborhoods and the alderman and Mayor’s Office, in September 2001 the City of St. Louis adopted the McRee Town Redevelopment Plan. McRee Town Redevelopment Corporation, an affiliate of the Garden District Commission, was granted redevelopment rights to implement the plan.
The Garden District Commission (GDC) is seeking proposals from qualified developers for the rehabilitation of existing buildings and the construction of new buildings on vacant parcels on the 4100 blocks of McRee Ave. and Lafayette Ave. in the Botanical Heights neighborhood. The GDC is a non-profit, community-based organization formed in 1997 to promote stabilization and revitalization in the Botanical Heights, Shaw, Tiffany, and Southwest Garden neighborhoods.
