A premier location when they were founded in the late 1800s,
the Tower Grove Neighborhoods of Shaw, Tower Grove South and Southwest Garden have undergone a rebirth with the past decade’s renewed interest in city living.
TGNCDC Community Statement-
We share in the sorrow over the tragic event that took place in one of our neighborhoods last week. Our thoughts and support are with the families, residents, and all individuals impacted by the event. Shaw residents take great pride in our strong, diverse community, and as we take time to talk, pray, and heal, the people of this community will continue to grow and support each other through this difficult time.
While Tower Grove Neighborhoods Community Development Corporation is only 10 months old, our combined organization has worked diligently to revitalize and stabilize our communities for over 30 years primarily through real estate related efforts. We have been and will continue to be a resource for the community and a partner for positive change. Shaw Neighborhood Improvement Association has our full support and we have offered our assistance.
Our community has made significant investments in the area and residents, churches, businesses and public officials are committed to continuing the effort to make Shaw, Tower Grove South and Southwest Garden the best places to live in the region.
The Tower Grove Neighborhoods Community Development Corporation is a consolidation of Grand Oak Hill Community Corporation, Southwest Garden Housing Corporation and Shaw Neighborhood Housing Corporation. The three organizations have served the community for over 30 years. Now, as a combined entity, Tower Grove Neighborhoods Community Development Corporation continues the tradition and supports the area’s growth by promoting responsible development, affordable housing and diverse character and vibrancy in the neighborhoods surrounding Tower Grove Park. Through local development and community progress expertise, the Tower Grove Neighborhoods Community Development Corporation serves as a resource to neighborhood residents, buyers/renters, developers, real estate agents and business owners.
