Botanical Heights


Since 2004 Botanical Heights has seen the construction of over 150 new single family homes and townhomes. 

Residents appreciate the multi-cultural community and its close proximity to the Missouri Botanical Garden, Tower Grove Park, Cardinal Glennon Hospital, downtown St. Louis, Saint Louis University and Grand Center. The neighborhood has experienced a great deal of growth with the addition of new homes, apartments and the renovation of commercial buildings by UIC.  Residents share their neighborhood with upscale restaurants, the corporate headquarters of a thriving IT firm, an advertising agency and many more locally owned businesses.T he neighborhood is also convenient to bus lines, MetroLink and Interstate 44.


Botanical Heights is bounded on the west by the east side of Vandeventer curving around to the eastern boundary of 39th Street, and south to Interstate 44 at Lafayette. Developed from 1880 to 1930 as a mixed use neighborhood, Botanical Heights continues to be home to large distributing and manufacturing businesses, along with small businesses.
