A potential new housing development in The Hill neighborhood of St. Louis may soon be replacing a dangerous abandoned building that has been vacant for decades. The Sansone Group, a local real estate development company, and their partners, Draper & Kramer have been working for months with the Hill 2000 Neighborhood Association to tear down an abandoned warehouse in the 4900 block of Daggett Avenue.
A major eyesore on The Hill could be turned into high end residential housing. This would be the first new building addition that has happened on The Hill in decades. The Sansone Group and their partners have plans to turn the area were this vacant warehouse sits into high end residential housing.
Another development is on its way to the self-proclaimed “Hub of the Universe.” The America’s Best Inn in Marion has been demolished to make way for a strip mall, according to City Administrator Gail West. A sign in front of a pile of rubble that used to be the hotel says the space is for lease by the Sansone Group. On the real estate agent’s website, it touts the property as 13,980 square feet with excellent visibility and accessibility.
