Our exurban buddies at Blairmont Associates LC have another name, Path Enterprise Company LLC, chartered on February 2, 2004.
Let’s review the other names that seem wrapped up in the scheme to acquire hundreds of parcels in the city’s 5th and 19th wards on the near north side:
N & G Ventures LC, chartered on January 28, 2003;
Noble Development Company, chartered on February 4, 2003;
VHS Partners LC, chartered on June 28, 2002;
and, of course, Blairmont Associates LC, chartered on June 14, 2002.
The companies have a two-week registration spacing, with two companies created in each year. Is there another company for 2004? Yes. There is one more with an interesting connection that I will discuss in the future. I have no knowledge of any companies created last year or this year.
The address for some of these companies is at Eagle Realty Company, 721 Olive Street Suite 900 in St. Louis. However, campaign finance disclosure reports list a different address: 1001 Boardwalk Springs Place in O’Fallon, Missouri. This happens to be the office of McEagle Development Company, developers of WingHaven and failed developers of BaratHaven.
Tornados and developers all seem to track from the west through the city. Do they both leave destruction behind?
The answer coming from the tired shells of the Clemens House and the Mullanphy Emigrant Home is yes.
