The Emily Pulitzer housing development named On Olive continues construction along Olive Blvd. in the Grand Center neighborhood in St. Louis on the 16th day of November 2021. It’s a unique urban community with a grocery store that recently opened nearby in The City Foundry called Fresh Thyme Market. The grocery store is state-of-the-art married with an old-town vibe with free parking for all. Now everyone has a place to do their grocery shopping which is why Emily’s project is starting to make a bit more since.

I knew a few visionaries in my life and this is what they do. They sit on a mountain and just see more than others. They seem to be able to predict what is going to happen more accurately than the rest of us. It’s like magic to us but it just common sense to them. I think we can all say we now get it. The Grand Center is going to be the place, the next Clayton, the next place to move to and open a business.

The designs and plans are avant-garde, with separate homes connected in a continuous sexy-mess with sustainable gardens throughout the development. “Shut the front Door,” you say. If you can find it you can. It is about time someone created a home that look a bit different. But how dare you be different! You designers need to conform to society more you bunch of rebels 🙂 Kidding aside, we love what you did to the place and are thrilled that this isn’t another cookie-cutter project. And as far as it being a sexy mess, we think it’s just Hot!

What is next for Grand Center? Only a few can actually answer this question and I mean just a few. I think not knowing is better and adds a bit of mystery to our lives. Mystery, intrigue, hauntings, history, Fox, Powell Hall, upscale sexy-mess smart homes, full grocery store with parking, City Foundry. What in Gods name is going on here. 🙂

There still maybe plans that only the visionaries hold secrete but a few of us can now see the magic, the magic that started with a dream and became a reality right before our very eyes. Watch the Grand Center housing prices soar in the future and more business flock to Midtown. This is what success looks like, if I may. Bravo to the visionaries and well done. You never stop dazzling us with your forward thinking and trail-blazing ideas.
