The Kingsway District
The Kingsway Development Corporation was created out of the necessity to cease the rapid decline of American neighborhoods and restore them to their potential of vibrancy and communal splendor. Founded by merchants that live and work in the targeted area, and guided by experienced developers, KDC will take on the mission of raising capital, technical expertise, training and information to develop thriving business communities that spur economic development, affordable housing and safe neighborhoods.
Working with investors, community development corporations, the philanthropic community, and dedicated residents, KDC will take on the challenge of rebuilding communities from the grassroots to the boardroom. Through a comprehensive Building Sustainable Communities approach to neighborhood revitalization, KDC and its partners are committed to turning abandonment into opportunity.
KDC is a St. Louis based organization within the Kingsway Merchants District of the 18th Ward. KDC exists as a necessary community development intermediary, combining corporate, government, and philanthropic resources to help community-based organizations revitalize their neighborhoods.
KDC exists as an integral part of helping community-led, community-benefiting development strategies transform distressed communities and neighborhoods into healthy ones – good places to live, do business, work, and raise families.
The mission of the Kingsway Development project is to stimulate growth within the Kingsway District beginning with the development of new commercial businesses along Delmar Blvd beginning on both the North and South sides of the street.
Our goal is to increase stable residency by first stimulating the economic infrastructure of the District then working hand in hand with City officials to include Kingsway as one of St. Louis' premier growing neighborhoods.
Working in conjunction with the 18th Ward Alderman Terry Kennedy, Kingsway Development has created an integrated plan that includes the vision of residents, neighborhood organizers, architects, and a diverse array successful professionals with proven experience from similar transformative projects around the St. Louis and the nation.
Through a robust safety initiative, Kingsway will facilitate a state-of-the-art crime-prevention system that will speak directly to the needs of the Kingsway district and connect to larger efforts in adjacent communities.
Location. Location. Location.
The Kingsway District is adjacent to the vibrant Central West End and less than five miles from the downtown. Kingsway is centrally located within an urban street grid that connects residents through bus services, bicycle networks and Metrolink channels. A multitude of amenities, health services and entertainment venues already exist in the area, and additional amenities are envisioned as part of multiple planned projects.
