The Tower Grove South Neighborhood will possibly see some new buildings soon. The most prominent and first to come to light is a 26 Unit Apartment Project called "MOFO" which stands for Morganford. The new project will be situated at the corner of Morganford and Connecticut Street in the TGS Neighborhood. It will replace a run down Car Wash. The project will also include Street level retail which will add to the emerging Morganford Business District near Tower Grove Park.
A unique feature about the building is the design. The design puts a modern twist on the neighborhoods historic look. Not only is the 3 Floor Building going to add to the character of the area, but it will also contribute to a much larger project. A Project that will help other neighborhoods realize that every neighborhood has a Central Corridor. In this case, this will help Tower Grove South realize that their Central Corridor is Morganford between Utah and Arsenal.
If approved, the building could start to rise as soon as the end of this year or early next year. As more news on this comes in, I'll be sure to update this post.
