We will learn the process to acquire a property from Laura Costello, director of the city’s landbank, the Land Reutilization Authority (LRA).  Hear from two developers about new housing on LRA lots. Yaphett El-Amin, former MO State Rep, president of Efficacy Consulting & Development, has built 40 single family homes in the Vandeventer neighborhood.  Jamilah Nasheed, MO Senator 5th District, is securing architect drawings and surveys for her proposal to build a 4-plex on an LRA lot.  Learn from these ladies’ experiences.


The 2020 Landlord Training is a Northside-Southside Collaboration between North Newstead Association, The Vacancy Collaborative, and Tower Grove Neighborhoods CDC. This FREE training is open to all landlords, property managers, rehabbers, developers, and interested parties. This facility is ADA compliant. If you need special accommodations, please contact dana@towergrovecdc.org

The goal of the Landlord & Rehabber Training Program is to stabilize our communities by building an eco-system of educated landlords, rehabbers, and small developers empowered to reduce vacancy and nuisance.  The program will enlist professionals from real estate, property management, law, accounting, preservation, & finance industries to share their knowledge on acquiring and developing real estate and implementing property management best practices.


This activity is funded by a HUD Community Development Block Grant via the St. Louis Community Development Administration and coordinated by Tower Grove Neighborhoods CDC, North Newstead Association, and The Vacancy Collaborative.


Tenant Screening service is available for all areas! Visit MyHomeScreen.org or call 314-865-5530.
