The Missouri Department of Health's Facilities Review Committee granted a certificate of need for a three-bed urgent care hospital that's part of developer Paul McKee's master plan for the overall project. No one spoke in opposition to granting McKee a certificate of need during the committee's meeting, and the vote in favor was 7-0.
The facility is to be built at 25th Street and Maiden Lane.
That was the idea behind a visit to St. Louis by a group of Detroit community development professionals this week.
The Detroit Revitalization Fellows met with representatives from Preservation Research St. Louis, Washington University Medical Center Redevelopment Corporation, Old North St. Louis Restoration Group, Northside Regeneration and Cortex.
Developer Paul McKee outlines his plans for an urgent care hospital at 25th Street and Maiden Lane on Wednesday. He estimates the project will cost between $12-$15 million and will be financed privately.
A new urgent care hospital is planned within the Northside Regeneration project in north St. Louis.
Developer Paul McKee will announce plans Wednesday for the first big project within the 1,500-acre footprint of the redevelopment zone. Mayor Francis Slay, state Sen. Jamilah Nasheed and state Rep. Penny Hubbard are expected to attend.
Although nothing official has been released, people close to the project say the facility will likely be about 16,000 square feet.
Developer Paul McKee has two weeks to reimburse the city of St. Louis for legal fees associated with his Northside Regeneration project.
The city’s Board of Estimate and Apportionment voted Wednesday to give McKee until April 30 to pay approximately $57,000 in legal fees. That money is associated with a roughly three-year legal battle over McKee's proposal to redevelop portions of north St. Louis.
