There is no better way to close out the year than with a great group of people dedicated to making the world a better place. Clayco had an amazing board of advisors meeting in St. Louis at Delmar DivINe – a centerpiece for advancement that houses nonprofit organizations, sponsors innovative programs, and provides affordable housing for young professionals and social leaders.
I always enjoy catching up with Maxine Clark, who is the mastermind behind the Delmar DivINe project and a fantastic friend. Seeing Maxine’s vision come to life is truly remarkable. Clayco is so proud to have been a partner in this pivotal endeavor that is turning the tide of history by reimagining life for St. Louis residents and beyond.
Delmar DivINe is a 310,000-square-foot symbol of INvestment, INnovation, and INclusion. It’s currently home to 150 apartments, space for 33 nonprofit tenants, and retail storefronts along Delmar Boulevard. The building is becoming a pillar of social change, and its cultural legacy aims to strengthen the nonprofit sector throughout the St. Louis region among health, education, and human service organizations.
Maxine’s devotion to Missouri communities has sparked an influx of compassionate people who work daily to bridge the gap communities face with accessing wealth, resources, and opportunities. At a fundamental level, Delmar DivINe is creating a space for creativity and connection where people can raise families, send their children to school, work, relax, and play – something our world needs more of.
Clayco will be posting record profit and revenue for 2023 with the largest backlog in our history for 2024 and 2025. This will enable us to unleash enormous community benefits Beyond These Walls like never before and dive into even more projects like Delmar DivINe.
Let’s continue to push the boundaries of progress and innovation!
I initially launched Bob Clark Beyond in 2020 to motivate and mentor others. Now, I am thrilled to announce that I am venturing on a deeper mission to spark inspiration and connection with a NEW LOOK!
The death of Alexei Navalny is a tragic and unnecessary loss. Alexei was a prominent Russian opposition leader and a strong advocate for democracy and human rights.
What does FDR have to do with current events and my gluteus medius tendon tear? A lot. For one thing, my tear has provided a great perspective for me after knowing that FDR was stricken with polio at age 39. It has also created a sense of optimism because of how he handled his much, much worse situation and endured his disability with such grace that he became the poster child for “people of determination,” a phrase I heard often while in Dubai.
