25th Ward Saw Increase In Vacant Buildings in 2004

August 2, 2005 25th Ward No Comments

From today’s Post-Dispatch:

“Only four wards reported an increase in vacant buildings last year: 14, 24 and 25 in the south part of the city, and 18 on the north. Wards 3, 4 and 22 on the north side had the largest number of vacant buildings. Altogether, St. Louis had 5,504 vacant buildings in 2004.”

An increase in vacant buildings is not a good sign. Of course, tearing them down to reduce the number is even worse as that simply increases the number of vacant lots.
