About the LBD
The Locust Central Business District, more commonly known as the Locust Business District (LBD) is a political subdivision of the State, located in the City of St. Louis. The Locust Business District serves the community by supplementing city services.
The Locust Business District was once the hub of the St. Louis automotive industry. Many of the District's historic building facades still hint at this automotive past. Developers often retain the history of these buildings while redeveloping them, preserving both the names of the buildings as well as many of their interesting historical features.
Today, the Locust Business District is an area of rapid growth and redevelopment in the City of St. Louis. Many new lofts, businesses and service providers are now open in the District and more are still choosing to relocate into the District.
