Economic Development and Small Business Support

Beyond Housing's Economic Development work focuses on commercial properties in the 24:1 Community. Our organization owns and operates space for local small businesses that provide goods and services our community has prioritized during ongoing community visioning. Thus far, with residents’ input, we have brought a grocery store, bank, healthcare services, office space, a movie theater, sit-down restaurant dining, and retail space into the 24:1 Community, with more projects in the works.

Contact the Economic Development Specialist at 314-376-5676 if:

  • You are a small business owner looking to locate in one of our Beyond Housing-owned commercial properties the 24:1 Community.
  • You are a small business owner looking for connections to resources for small businesses.
  • You are a developer interested in partnering on projects in the 24:1 Community or wanting to find out more information about available properties, community development priorities, and potential development partnerships.
