Vacancy Project

The Vacancy Project helps identify and clear abandoned buildings in the St. Louis metropolitan area where crimes often happen.

Several studies have shown a strong link between vacant properties and crime. One study found that demolishing a single vacant building reduced crime by 7.5% in a block group and 5.1% in nearby block groups per month.
