Key vote on McKee's NorthSide plan expected

   A key Aldermanic committee is expected to vote Wednesday morning on tax incentives for Paul McKee’s NorthSide Regeneration plan.  

   Passage of the updated $390 million TIF isn't assured, but the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that its chances are better after a hearing yesterday.  U.S. Congressman Lacy Clay, Mayor Francis Slay, and other voiced strong support for the two square mile development north of downtown.  

   No vote was taken yesterday because half of the eight-member Housing, Urban Development and Zoning Committee was absent from the meeting.  Five committee members must be present for a quorum.

   The Aldermen missing from Tuesday's committee hearing were Terry Kennedy,  who was attending a funeral.  Sam Moore, who's recuperating from a bad car accident last week.  Antonio French and Chris Carter, whose absence was unexplained.  Neither could be reached for comment.  Board President Lewis Reed could have filled in, but his staff told the paper that he was out of town. 

   If the committee approves the changes to the TIF, it will then go before the full Board of Aldermen, where it's chances of passage have improved.  

   Alderman Freeman Bosley Senior, whose ward makes up a large part of the project area, had opposed the project, but has apparently changed his mind.  Bosley toured the project area with McKee last Wednesday and told the paper that after seeing McKee's plans, he doesn't know anyone who would oppose it.

   A U.S. Congressman and the Mayor of St. Louis will both go before the Board of Aldermen this week in hopes of forwarding the long-stalled Northside Regeneration Project.  

   Aldermen are considering a bill that would tweak developer Paul McKee's nearly $400 million tax increment financing package to account for delays suffered while the city fought a lawsuit against it.  

   The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that the fate of the project's TIF is unclear.  

   Congressman William Lacy Clay and St. Louis Mayor Francis Slay will speak in favor the 1,500 acre project.  But only one of the five aldermen whose wards make up the project area just north of downtown, 5th Ward Alderwoman Tammika Hubbard, clearly supports Northside.  

   And one, Alderman Freeman Bosley Senior, has threatened to block the bill if there isn't more community input in the project and better protections for current homeowners.

   Developer Paul McKee's NorthSide Regeneration Project remains up in the air.  The St. Louis TIF Commission delayed a vote yesterday on changes to the $390 million dollar TIF plan after residents demand more information.  

   The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that residents of the near-northside neighborhood spent nearly two hours criticizing McKee for failing to include them in his plans, and at least one key alderman threatened to block the project unless neighborhood concerns are addressed.  

   McKee says he's held more than 140 community meetings since unveiling plan four years ago.

   After three years of lawsuits, developer Paul McKee is hoping to restart his stalled NorthSide Regeneration Project.

   The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that the city's Tax Increment Finance Commission will hold a public hearing Wednesday on McKee's request for some changes to the $390 million TIF package that the Board of Aldermen had approved for for the project four years ago.  

   A spokesman for the project says they need officials to restart the clock the 1,500 acre redevelopment.  

   The public hearing also gives residents another chance to chime in.  

   McKee says if he wins the TIF changes, ground could be broken next spring on the 2 square mile development site north of downtown.

ST. LOUIS (AP) — The long-delayed NorthSide Regeneration project in St. Louis is expected to get started by November.

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that developer Paul McKee says he is meeting every 10 days with city officials to get the project started as soon as possible.

The $8 billion development by McKee's NorthSide Regeneration LLC is envisioned eventually to include 10,000 homes and millions of square feet of office space in an impoverished two-square-mile area north of downtown St. Louis.

The project got a boost from a Missouri Supreme Court ruling in April that gave the go-ahead to nearly $400 million in city financing for road and street work.

McKee says he is getting more calls from potential tenants now that the lawsuit is finished.

Published in Local News

ST. LOUIS (AP) - The Missouri Supreme Court has ruled in favor of a massive project using tax increment financing to redevelop an impoverished area of St. Louis.

A trial court more than two years ago threw out $390 million in TIF funding for developer Paul McKee's NorthSide Regeneration project. An appeals court sided with the trial court.

But the Missouri Supreme Court in a unanimous ruling Tuesday reversed the part of the ruling that voided a city ordinance, allowing the project to move forward.

An attorney for residents who sought to stop TIF funding calls the ruling disappointing. But McKee's attorney says it is a big day for St. Louis.

The $8 billion development is expected to eventually include 10,000 homes, office and retail space in a two-square-mile area north of downtown.

Paul McKee to appeal for tax credit extension

Developer Paul McKee will be in Jefferson City Tuesday, trying to save his stalled NorthSide Regeneration project. The McEagle Properties chairman will ask the House Economic Development Committee to extend the tax credit program he's been using to amass land for the project.

The $95 million Distressed Areas Land Assemblage credit was passed in 2007 and will expire this August.

McKee's company has received more than $40 million so far and amassed 2,200 parcels of land in north St. Louis for the project. But McKee told the St. Louis Post-Dispatch that he's needs to buy another 500 parcels for contiguous sites.

The NorthSide project calls for new and refurbished homes, retail and manufacturing space, along with schools and medical facilities on a two square mile area just north of downtown.
