Businesses

The Loop is anchored by 170 businesses and some of the best Saturday morning retail in town. Tools, supplies, know-how. We’ll get you the materials you need for your next project and the truck to get it all home.

Schools

We’re home to 6 schools, 4500 students, and a host of other creative endeavors. Not only do we have world class museums at Mizzou North, we’ve got Friday night football at Hickman High.

People

We’re long-time business and property owners who’ve built the foundation for a great street. Now we’re taking it to the next level–and we’re saving a place for anyone interested in breaking new ground.

Neighbors

The Loop is surrounded by established neighborhoods and we’re strengthening those links with placemaking and public spaces. We want to The Loop to be a vibrant and livable corridor where everyone can thrive.

It’s good to be in The Loop.

We’re a collection of doers. We learn, we fix, we build. Whether it’s souping up your car or sprucing up your house, grilling a steak or planting a garden, we have the knowledge and the tools to get the job done. Now we’re taking that same DIY approach to improving The Loop. We’re creating a corridor of learning opportunities, creative endeavors, and economic engines——all with the same get-it-done attitude we’re known for.
