The Boyle on South Grand

Tim Boyle bought the house at 3539 Hartford on 5/4/2001 for $77,000.00 with the intention of turning it into a parking lot for the St. Louis Bread Co. During the demolition hearings, he argued that the building was not worth saving. Now he's got it listed for $134,900 (MLS ID#: 357422). As far as I know, he hasn't done any work on it.

As reported in the Arch City Chronicle, Tim Boyle and Ald. Steve Conway are on the outs because Boyle has failed to make promised repairs to the Anderson Garage (2337 S. Grand), which he has owned for about six years. In retribution, Conway is holding up the liquor license for the Qdoba restaurant that's slated to move into the former Streetside Records space owned by Boyle.

Part of the south wall of the Anderson Garage has already collapsed. There are gaping holes in the roof, floors and walls. Yet, in the Business Journal's Summer 2002 Leasing Guide, the Anderson Building was listed as having been renovated in 2000. The rent was listed as $15.50 per square foot, and the leasing guide claimed that the building had 70 parking spaces

Some more back story: I called Tim Boyle in the spring of 2000 to ask him if he had any available office space on Grand for the company I was working for. He tried to sell me on the idea of moving into the Anderson, which he said would be completed in August (of 2000).

Speaking of the South Grand strip, what is going to happen to the building which Commerce Bank is now occupying, once the bank moves into its new building?

I'm not positive, but I think the temporary bank location is going to be demolished.

Does Boyle also own the Dickmann Building?

Yeah, Boyle owns the Dickmann Building. It's the six-story building with the white terra cotta facade. The address is 3115 S Grand Blvd. Last I heard, it was mostly empty.
