Mayor Francis G. Slay (c) leads the ribbon cutting for the new City Garden Montessori School on Tower Grove Avenue in the Botanical Heights neighborhood on Thursday, Aug. 23, 2012.
In Dec. 2011, U.S. Bank committed more than $2 million of New Markets Tax Credit equity in support of the $5.2 million acquisition and development of the new school and a nearby restaurant through its St. Louis-based subsidiary, U.S. Bancorp Community Development Corporation (USBCDC).
USBCDC partnered with St. Louis Development Corporation, People's National Bank, IFF, and the City Garden Montessori School Foundation to finance the development.
The new energy efficient building features classrooms for children grades pre-school through eighth, a gymnasium, a library, a kitchen, offices and meeting rooms.
