Geographers, physicians and astronomers, watch out, for this is a city that is home to an impressive number of scientists, running the entire gamut from social scientists, life scientists and physical scientists among others. Equally amazing is the fact that someone who stands in the middle of Price Road where Delmar ends, would technically be in three cities all at once: Olivette, University City and Ladue. Olivette, as you can see, is no ordinary city!
Previously known simply as 'Central' owing to its 'central' location, Olivette was settled in the mid-19th century as a farming community nestled along an ancient Indian trail called Bonhomme Road. It was incorporated as a city in 1930 by combining four different communities namely Central, Olive, Stratmann and Tower Hill. But how did the name Olivette come about? While the dictionary definition of an "Olivette" refers to "a large theatrical floodlight having a single bulb," this particular Olivette was probably named so because the main road into St. Louis connected with Olive Street. Presently, although Olivette is an inner-ring suburb of St. Louis, Missouri, residents treat it like their very own city. With a population of 7,737 and spread over an area of approximately 2.95 square miles, it is located 700 feet above sea level, and is one of the highest communities in St. Louis County. See more
Balconies are a coveted amenity for many renters looking for high-rise views and opportunities for fresh air. However, you should keep in mind that balconies often come with restrictions.
Before signing a lease, ask about how many people can be on the balcony at once. Also, ask about whether you’re allowed to store a bike or other items.
You’ll also want to know about any maintenance schedules. Using your balcony as storage could result in fines and intervention from your property management.
Keep in mind that not all balconies are created equally. You may discover the views of the parking area are less than optimal or reduce your overall privacy.
Balconies can also get messy with debris, foliage, dirt, and pollen depending on your location. Renters are typically responsible for any clean-up and basic balcony upkeep.
Regardless of the issues to keep in mind, balconies are usually a big win for Olivette renters. Ask about apartments on higher floors for the best views.
