The St Louis Contrarian

Providing Independent and Intelligent Insight on St. Louis Public Policy Issues

Delmar Divide

I sat in on a webinar today that was led by Washington University that discussed a new project, the Delmar Divine. It is a mixed use project led by Maxine Clark that rehabs an old hospital space for the purpose of housing a large group of social service agencies, apartments, and retail. The Brown School of Social Work where nobody has ever built one unit of housing considers this to be a cool idea. I greatly admire Ms. Clark, but I wonder how this will change anything in St. Louis and help eliminate the Delmar divide, which is a racial barrier in the city. Once again, a lot of good talk and money for limited results. Written by Paul Dribin
