Affordable 'Senior Living' at old Cochran Gardens
The St. Louis American

Some may remember the red-brick housing towers with repetitive balconies called Cochran Gardens on Biddle Street in Old North St. Louis. Built in 1953, Cochran Gardens was the city’s third federally-funded housing project built by the St. Louis Housing Authority.
Cochran Gardens was also the last of the city’s public housing towers to come down. In 2003, it was redeveloped into a mixed-income neighborhood called Cambridge Heights, using a federal grant.
