1. 920 Albany ? Century Home
members present discussed the demolition of 920 Albany Ct as required by
Section 52.160(m) of the Code of Webster Groves which permits the HPC to
discuss the proposal with the applicant but cannot vote on the matter.
The new owner of 920 Albany was present and indicated
that the realtor with which he worked to acquire the house advertised the house
as a tear-down. The house was built in 1907. It has been neglected and has
many structural deficiencies and problems with the electrical and HVAC
systems. The owner indicated that the neighbors with which he had spoken would
like to see the house removed. The HPC advised that demolition of the house
would not negatively impact any significant cultural resources in the City.
2. 705 Greeley
- Century Home (Demolition)
There is a
possibility that a construction company known for removal and
replacement has acquired this property. More information is needed to
determine what is planned. Mike Harney will call and see what information he
can gather. The HPC believes that losing this house will change the character
of the neighborhood.
