(KTVI)-Nine months ago, developer Paul McKee appeared on the Jaco Report.  At the time, the Missouri Supreme Court had just declared his controversial north side regeneration program legal. For a decade, McKee had secretly bought up thousands of parcels of land in north St. Louis.  A lot of them fell into disrepair. Some partly collapsed. Neighbors complained about the properties. That reality was at odds with McKee's vision for an urban wasteland re-built from the ground up, with new sewers, new streets, new power lines, new homes, and new businesses.

So, now Charles again sits down with Paul McKee, especially since this was the week a number of St. Louis aldermen were asking those same questions. Why the delays now? Does the northside project even have a future?
