A half-dozen Hudson tenants recently told the St. Louis Post-Dispatch that their units were not ready on move-in day. They say the building is still an active construction site.

Developer Lux Living, which built hundreds of apartments in the St. Louis region and has plans for further development, is increasingly coming under fire for its business practices — and many current and former tenants have voiced concerns about the company.

On Friday’s St. Louis on the Air, St. Louis Post-Dispatch business, politics and economic development reporter Jacob Barker talked about his recent story about Lux Living and the two brothers behind the enterprise.
