Tower Grove South apartment tax break passes after tense debate at Board of Aldermen

ST. LOUIS • A property tax break for a 26-unit apartment building is not a request that would typically spark a lengthy debate at the St. Louis Board of Aldermen.

St. Louis officials regularly approve tax incentives for similar projects, and 25 city aldermen on Friday voted in favor of this one: 90 percent abatement for 10 years, for a $6.4 million plan to replace a car wash on Morganford Road with a three-story apartment building that includes ground-floor commercial space. Several aldermen spoke Friday about the merits of the project for the Tower Grove South neighborhood.
