ST. LOUIS — Despite the recession, the number of people moving to downtown St. Louis is on the rise.

That's the finding of a new study by the Partnership of Downtown St. Louis, which states that as of the end of last year, 11,800 people lived downtown. That's an increase of 6 percent from the year before.

City leaders say the study is evidence of what they call a revival of downtown.

The report states nearly 5,000 people have moved downtown this decade.
