Blairmont Footprint Map

I wanted to take a stab at mapping the acquisitions of Blairmont. I just did two blocks at random to demonstrate how the project might look.

Location: 22xx Block of St. Louis, 22xx Block of Montgomery, 23xx Block of St. Louis, 23xx Block of Montgomery.

The faint gray is private property.

The blue is LRA/LCRA property.

The red is Blairmont (LLCs include Blairmont, MLK 3000, Dodier Investors, etc.).

(And, by the way, the white is stuff I didn't get to yet!)

And here is a bolder colored image.

As you can see, they have yet to unleash their full onslaught on the intact and large homes of St. Louis Avenue (though they've started), but the vulnerable and significantly vacant inner portions of St. Louis Place are disintegrating at an ever more rapid pace with Blairmont as their steward. Blairmont is already expanding St. Louis's most notorious "urban prairie" centered around North 22nd and Market.

This was my first attempt. There will be more to follow.

Stay posted.
