Columbus Square Neighborhood

It would be good to see some racially diverse neighborhoods in north St. Louis in years to come.  Almost across the board, the current day stats indicate that the north city neighborhoods have very little to no racial diversity to speak of.

Anyhow, this neighborhood is unique in that it's current housing stock was almost entirely built up in the 1980's.  There are some older relics, but most of the apartments, condos and townhomes were built the last 30 or so years.  Here's the city's rundown of the various developments within the neighborhood.  It's always strange to me that each of these developments need to be branded like it's something special:  the Castles, Courtyards at Cityside, Cambridge Heights....very strange.  Is that supposed to evoke some kind of exclusivity?  I don't get it.
