Last month, Maxine Clark, founder and retired chief executive of Build-A-Bear Workshop (now CEO of the Clark Fox Family Foundation), and Bob Clark, chairman and chief executive of Clayco Corp (nope, they’re not related), presented a redevelopment plan for the shuttered St. Luke’s Hospital on Delmar Boulevard to the City of St. Louis. Titled “Delmar DivINe”, the project would include 160 apartments serving Teach for America and house various non-profits, providing shared services and low rent.
Although a developer has not yet been officially chosen, Clark appears all-in on the Delmar DivINe. A website has been set up to promote the development proposal and present initial renderings for the project. The site states the project will open “Winter 2018”. The second proposal, “Grand Missourian International” by Prad Sabharway, managing director of Ananta Advisors, is described below.
