Plan Would Restore Antebellum Worker’s Cottage, Add Infill in Benton Park

An antebellum workers cottage in south St. Louis with possible ties to the Underground Railroad may finally have a new future. Planned is a one-story contemporary addition, as well as adjacent single-family and two-family homes. The proposal appears set to receive approval from the city’s Preservation Review Board next week.
The project, by Rubicon Corporation and designed by Curtiss Byrne, spans 3310-3320 Lemp, a total of five lots, all owned by the St. Louis Land Reutilization Authority (LRA). In April of this year, 3310 was set ablaze by an arsonist.

3011 Missouri, First of Five For Benton Park Infill Project Completed

The first of these historic-styled homes hits the market this month. While no one may applaud the non-brick sides and rear, or the carport (will another real garage ever be built in our fair city?!), the completed home is a great example of fitting a modern home behind a thoroughly historic facade.
There is a lot to appreciate about the 1890-1920 historic St. Louis home, especially if the detailed craftsmanship has been preserved.
