Update on Paul McKee and Northside Project

Little is happening in this arena. KWMU came upon a renegotiation agreement that requires relatively little of the northside group to keep the deal going. As I have said, I know McKee and consider him an honorable purchase. I think he has been squeezed by too many parties in the city. Written by Paul Dribin

More Bad McKee Stuff

The Post had some thoroughly documented stories about Mr. McKee over the weekend. These stories which were quite difficult to follow seemed to say that once again McKee scammed the tax credit system to derive funds for projects that never materialized. Bad stuff. Written by Paul Dribin

A Good Article Defending McKee

A good article from River City Ramblings with which I agree. https://stlpolitical.blog/2018/06/26/why-paul-mckee-has-unfairly-become-a-scapegoat-for-the-city-of-st-louis

McKee Fight Heats Up

Big time north side developer Paul McKee has faced many difficulties in trying to develop his north side project. The city development agency has attempted to pull the plug on him. Now he and his attorneys are counter suing, stating that the city did not live up to its agreement. Looks like a long and expensive battle. Written by Paul Dribin

A good article from Post about latest in McKee developments in north St. Louis. It sure appears his empire is a house of cards ready to fall.

Paul McKee

Those of you in the St. Louis area are well familiar with Mr. McKee, a long time developer who is attempting to transform the north side of St. Louis though massive development efforts. He owns hundreds of properties and has a bold vision for development. Many community based folks have been suspicious of him.

It turns out these suspicions seem warranted. The St. Louis Business Journal reported that McKee had inflated sales prices of his properties to increase his receipt of state tax credits. This is of course fraud.

I am actually disappointed. I knew Paul fairly well at one time and considered him a true visionary whose heart was in the right place. With me he was always generous with his time and was always very accessible. I like to think I am a good judge of character, but in this case I was fooled. Written by Paul Dribin
