Early Life and Education

Before University City existed, Olive Boulevard served as a main artery between St. Louis and nearby rural communities, lined by beautiful homes and dense groves of trees.

Early 1900s Olive Heights became well known for its climate and soil being ideal for growing citrus crops, leading ranchers to purchase vast stretches of land to create sprawling citrus groves that extended far beyond Olive Heights’ boundaries.

In the 1920s and 30s, an underground group of gangsters made an Olivette home their base. They caused great alarm among residents when they held target practice on the street in front of their home.

Achievement and Honors

In 2006, Olivette received an Outstanding Local Government Achievement award for intergovernmental cooperation in creating Olive Boulevard Transportation Development District (TDD), funded through an assessment on retail sales within its boundaries. It’s funded via assessments from retail sales within its boundaries; and managed by an eight-member board appointed by Olivette City Council; meetings are typically held the Tuesday following every second City Council meeting and have various subcommittees that monitor specific projects; Alex Winsor serves as executive director.

The street transition area refers to the initial five feet (5′) adjacent and parallel to an off-street parking landscape perimeter and may extend onto street right of way or private property. Pavement surfaces within this transition zone should be at least six inches (6″) wide.

Net Worth

The Markets at Olive development will feature a 14-acre Planned Development with office, retail and hotel uses. Costco Wholesale has signed on as the project’s anchor tenant while Chase Bank, Raising Cane’s and First Watch have also committed. In order to help cover related costs the City of University City has utilized tax increment financing as part of this endeavor.

In 2002, Creve Coeur property owners asked City officials to support a Transportation Development District (TDD) along Olive Boulevard within its Central Business District. After extensive public participation and approval by City Council in 2004, this initiative has since partnered with MoDOT and included decorative medians on Olive Boulevard between North New Ballas Road and Craig Road.
