Leaders of the Delmar Loop will present a look at improvements in the Delmar Loop entertainment and shopping district, including the Loop Trolley Project. The program is sponsored by CREW-St. Louis (Commercial Real Estate Women).
Joe Edwards, businessman, developer and civic leader, and Kevin Barbeau, executive director of the Loop Trolley Project, will give an overview on improvements taking place in the six-block entertainment, dining and shopping district. Chief among these is the impending completion of the $51 million Loop Trolley. Expected to open this summer, Edwards has championed for the trolley for two decades. The 2.2-mile trolley will connect the Loop – “one of the 10 great streets in America” – with Forest Park. It also harkens back to the area’s nickname. The Delmar Loop got its name over a century ago from streetcars that came west and “looped around” before connecting to other areas.
