Local Reviews

Lived here a long time. Family home full of memories. Lot of neighbors moving out, but some good ones moving in. Great park 2 blocks away. Older houses with character

Everything bout my neighbor hood wouldn't ask for nothing else or anything better now let me carry on now please

My immediate neighbors are very nice. There are several restaurants and bars within walking distance.

my neighborhood is diverse. I love all the restaurants and shops and most of all the grocery stores that are in walking distance.

Stores are in walking distance and conveniet transportation to get places in the area by public transportation. Also have hospital and school close by.

What I like most is that it is close to a big park with museums and tennis courts, and a pool. Also it is close to walkable restaurants and coffee shops.

About

Saint Louis, MO

Overview of St Louis

Families and couples looking at houses for rent in St. Louis will definitely want to check out the Grand Center neighborhood. The neighborhood's convenient location to the west of downtown and right off Interstate 64 is just one of many reasons to live in Grand Center. The area is built around culture - whether it's public events held at St. Louis University, a showing at nearby galleries or a performance at one of the plentiful theaters, there's something every member of the family will enjoy. Despite the wide variety of art forms and cultural opportunities in Grand Center, the real draw is the music. People come from all over the city and state to see musical events in Grand Center because there are so many venues for residents of Grand Center house rentals to enjoy.

The Fox Theatre

Nicknamed "The Fabulous Fox," Fox Theatre is one of the largest theaters in the area, first opened in 1929. Since it reopened in 1982, the more than 4,000-seat theater mainly stages Broadway shows and music concerts.

Powell Symphony Hall

Built in 1925 and reopened in 1968 following a $2 million renovation, the 2,689-seat hall has been on the National Register of Historic Places since 2001. Powell Symphony Hall hosts classical music performances, family concerts and special events throughout the year, including free shows. It's the current home of the St. Louis Symphony Orchestra, founded in 1880, the second-oldest symphony orchestra in the U.S. after New York Philharmonic. Design and architectural enthusiasts will enjoy the space too. The Versailles-inspired theme of elegant European reds and golds meshes with the masterful acoustical engineering for a beautiful and functional space that will last for years. 

The Sheldon Concert Hall

Built in 1912, the venue is known for its perfect acoustics and has a rich history besides music, having hosted the St. Louis branch of the Ethical Society until 1964. Today, it stages more than 350 musical events a year, including jazz, classical and folk shows, featuring artists such as Wynton Marsalis, Audra McDonald, Diana Krall and others. Whether Sheldon Concert Hall is hosting a performance from a world-famous opera singer or celebrating a significant milestone in St. Louis' history, the hall is more than just an event space, it's a musical and social focal point for the Grand Center community. 

Other neighborhood features

If you're the kind of person who prefers to hear music in your earbuds while on a run rather than in a professional concert hall, houses in Grand Center are also near a variety of parks and recreational places. Nearby St. Louis University isn't just great for cultural events and coffee shops - its plentiful green spaces are perfect for a jogger or runner looking to keep fit in an interesting place. Chambers Park, Norman Seay Park and Garrison-Branter-Webster Park also give residents good spots to keep active and play sports with the kids. For a real outdoor athletic experience, renters will want to travel just to the west to the massive Forest Park, which offers lakes, golf courses, forests, museums and even a zoo without leaving the city limits. 

In addition to being the performing arts epicenter of St. Louis, Grand Center is also home to 12 museums and galleries as well as jazz clubs and numerous restaurants.

Residents will never face the problem of looking for something to do. The issue will become finding which of the many community events the family wants to experience the most. Parents, kids and couples will love the safe, fun and colorful Grand Center neighborhood.
