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.
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.
Slowly but surely, developer Paul McKee’s plan to make over a large section of the city of St. Louis is again coming to fruition.
The legislation approved by the city’s Housing, Urban Development and Zoning committee today authorizes additional tax incentives for McKee’s NorthSide Regeneration Initiative, and restarts the development clock for the entire project.
The vote was delayed by a day after some members of the committee did not show up in order to deny a quorum.
Legislative hearings get underway next week on the measures that could finally lead to the start of Paul McKee’s massive redevelopment project for north St. Louis.
A court case held up the $8.1 billion project for three years. The measures up for debate would give McKee access to an additional $192 million in tax assistance, and restart the project’s clock. Mayor Francis Slay and Congressman William Lacy Clay are both expected to speak in support at Tuesday's hearing.
An $8.1 billion plan to remake a big chunk of north St. Louis continues to face stiff opposition, four years after it was first made public.
More than 200 people, most of them opposed to the Northside Regeneration Initiative, packed the St. Louis city Tax Increment Financing Commission meeting today urging its members to spike the project completely.
