SOUTH ST. LOUIS (KMOV.com) -

Community leaders broke ground on a new project in the Gravois Park-Dutchtown area of South City on Thursday.

The project involves turning 16 historic buildings at Chippewa and Oregon into apartments and commercial space. Part of that space will also be used a restaurant incubator.

“We have a flourishing restaurant industry here in St. Louis and to be able to incubate them here in the Gravois Park-Dutchtown neighborhood is a real asset.” Said 20th Ward Alderwoman Cara Spencer.

Developers say the apartment will be high quality, affordable homes that will replace vacant, deteriorating ones.
