Are they still building anymore new ones in St Louis? or Chicago for that matter? I don't know if there are any developers or builders today that build Victorians or brownstone style row houses anymore. You have your greystones, brownstones and brick materials. It seems that St Louis uses more brick and Chicago uses more greystones for their row houses. I know the brownstone materials originated out of Wisconsin are either out of stock or limited.

I've seen new construction row homes in Chicago in some neighborhoods like Lakeview and I believe Avondale. Not much though..

The few I saw, at least I thought they were row homes, were pretty elegant, but new looking. They're pretty nice. The old stuff I like better though. My post on the other page had links to some good ones.
