The Land Clearance for Redevelopment Authority of St. Louis County (LCRA) Brownfield Revolving Loan Fund (RLF) will provide a subgrant to remediate underground soils at 9844 and 9846 West Florissant Avenue, in preparation for a commercial building.

The Urban League of Metropolitan St. Louis is proposing to redevelop these two properties into Urban League Plaza. This redevelopment will provide convenient access to needed services for the towns of Dellwood, Ferguson and surrounding North County communities that have long lacked access to these services. The new 13,500 square foot shopping center will promote economic growth, create new jobs, and foster entrepreneurial initiatives and community well-being for the Town of Dellwood and surrounding communities.

This multi-purpose center will be an incubator for new businesses, a home for established and committed partners, and a place of community services for pregnant women, children and parents of young children. Potential and representative tenants include First Bank, At Home Care, Proficient Chiropractic, Urban League of Metropolitan St. Louis, including space for the Save our Sisters program and a local restaurant. All are minority businesses except First Bank which plans to hire minority residents. In addition to these and other retail tenants, the Metropolitan Urban League of St. Louis has plans for a community conference center, incubator space, and co-working spaces.
