Great things are happening in my hometown of St. Louis! Clayco hosted a ribbon-cutting ceremony to mark the grand opening of Delmar DivINe. The 310,000-square-foot building is now home to 150 apartments, space for 33 nonprofit tenants, and retail storefronts along Delmar Boulevard. The development is devoted to social change and cultural legacy and aims to strengthen the nonprofit sector in the St. Louis region among health, education, and human service organizations.

The “IN” in Delmar DivINe stands for INvestment, INnovation, and INclusion which are top priorities for our team at Clayco and the incredible organizations that use this transformative space.  I believe in St. Louis and care deeply about it reaching its full potential, and not just for those who already have privilege and opportunity. St. Louis is a city that can enable everyone to prosper, and projects like this help turn this vision into a reality.

I would like to thank all of the wonderful people and partners who have made this project a success, including Maxine Clark, CRG, LJC, and countless other visionaries working to help bridge the gap in resources for underserved neighborhoods. Delmar DivINe is improving a neglected community into a vibrant social venture. It brings prosperity, jobs, and a place for conversation and collaboration, reflecting a 21st-century approach to maximizing human and financial capital. 

Delmar DivINe is creating a space for creativity and connection where locals can raise families, send their children to school, work, relax and play.
