City Seeks to Eminent Domain its Own Property

 

Alderman Brandon Bosley filed legislation today “approving the use of condemnation by the City of St. Louis to acquire a site consisting of about 97 acres in North St. Louis near the intersection of Jefferson and Cass Avenues.”

Although the property is owned by the St. Louis Land Clearance for Redevelopment Authority’s holding company, LCRA Holdings Corporation (“LCRAH”), liens, development rights, and ongoing lawsuits stemming from Paul McKee’s involvement may be encumbering the property. Sources say the federal government is concerned about developing the NGA facility on land that may not have clear title. The solution proposed in the legislation is for the city to essentially eminent domain its own property to clear the title.
