Historic Shaw Walkability

Neighborhoods, New Listings Jun 2018

The Historic Shaw Neighborhood remains one of the most desirable areas of the city. The wide range of housing contributes to its character. From multifamily dwellings to townhomes to grand single families, Shaw truly offers something for everyone. A growing number of businesses are taking root in Shaw, which lends to its vibrancy and walkability. On any given day, you’ll see folks exercising their pooches at the dog park, grabbing a coffee at established or newer cafes, or walking to nearby Tower Grove Park.


3915 Shenandoah in Historic Shaw

3915 Shenandoah is our newest listing and just steps away from all the Shaw action. The  visual guide above illustrates just how conveniently located this townhome is. Furthermore, just a short 6 minute walk away is the South Grand Business District offering 6 blocks of restaurants, shops, bars, and shopping.


Living in Shaw means easy access (no worries about parking!) to a multitude of activities and festivals that occur in Tower Grove Park such as the annual Festival of Nations.  Walk to the Farmer’s Market or Food Truck Fridays. The Botanical Gardens’ popular Wednesday evening Whitaker Music Festival happens each summer. Fall brings the Japanese Festival and Best of Missouri Market.


One of the signature events of the neighborhood is the Historic Shaw Art Fair held annually each October since 1993. Roughly 135 top artists and craftspeople from around the country participate in the professionally juried fair, which is organized by the Shaw Neighborhood Improvement Association (SNIA). The SNIA website is an excellent website for those considering moving into the neighborhood.


We’ve helped dozens of clients buy and sell homes in Historic Shaw. The gallery at the top of this page shows some examples of condos, townhomes, and historic single family homes we’ve listed. We have thorough knowledge of the neighborhood. If you are considering this highly desirable area, we hope you consider touring 3915 Shendandoah or giving us a call.
