College Hill Neighborhood Plan


The College Hill neighborhood, located in the north part of the City of St. Louis, has a strong history with historic properties and robust institutions. However, in recent decades, the neighborhood has seen significant disinvestment with numerous vacancies. The i5Group, as a team member with Community and Economic Development Solutions (CED-Solutions), developed a comprehensive plan for the College Hill neighborhood.

The plan identifies opportunities for residential and commercial development as well as pre-development actions necessary to spur new activity. The plan identifies key areas for public investment (e.g., infrastructure, demolition) that support community development goals, provides recommendations for partnerships that support development of employment or training opportunities and investment in College Hill, and recommends strategic partnerships that advance development and community investment.
