ST. LOUIS, MO/April 26, 2017 (STLRestaurant.News) St. Louis is an ever developing and expanding city. Often this entails re-branding an historic district, The Grove is a perfect example of the city’s growth. The Grove used to be known as Adam’s Grove and, in the 1950s, it was a busy commercial district for the city. For years after, Adam’s Grove fell into decline as businesses moved into the downtown area and upkeep on the area was poorly maintained. The Grove area received its’ first wave to revitalizing investments in the 1980s, starting first with Attitudes Night Club. In 2009, a group of property owners founded The Grove Community Improvement District (CID). CID’s main goal is to strengthen the area’s businesses, residential community, and entertainment. On December 4th, 2015 approval was granted from the Missouri Housing Development Commission to begin development creating affordable housing. The development incorporated contemporary design and green building into the building of 50 garden apartments and town-homes. After decades of growth and development, The Grove has become an eccentric area full of diverse cultures and exciting events.
