New Condo Building Planned at Wydown and Hanley

details at cityscene-stl

Quote:
A few years after “The Beacon” was cancelled following the City of Clayton yanking their RFP on the parking lot at Wydown and Hanley, a new proposal has appeared and will fulfill a portion of the vision originally presented in the 2016 plan. Cornerstone Development was the prospective developer then, Savoy Properties is the prospective developer now.

The project would only focus on the Hanley and Wydown frontages and will leave out the Forest Court side that “the Beacon” originally proposed. However, the development will require the demolition of two multifamily buildings on Hanley, which carries over from the Beacon plan. A 100 space parking garage, with 41 spaces reserved as private parking, will be situated at grade and below grade. 3750SF of retail space will front Wydown. A colonnade, on the Hanley side of the building, will act as a partial buffer between cars on Hanley and pedestrians. The upper 3 floors will be 15 condos.

The design of the building will follow the Art Deco-Streamlined Moderne design, which bucks the trend of all glass or stucco facade buildings. The primary facade materials here will be concrete, brick, glass, and steel.

I reached out to Savoy Properties regarding this project, and am waiting back to hear their response.

The current cost of the development is unknown. As was with the Beacon, this project will be designed by Core10 architects. No timeline is known either.

At this point, the project will be reviewed at the Clayton Board of Aldermen meeting on October 22nd. They’ll review whether or not to sell the city owned parking lot for this condo project.





More Transit Oriented Development Planned Near UMSL at the North Hanley Metro Stop

details at cityscene-stl

Quote:
The recent influx in Transit Oritented Development proposals now has another sizable addition, University Crossing.

St. Louis based Bywater Development is planning a 60-unit workforce and affordable apartment project on the Southeast corner of the North Hanley Transit Center parking lot. The development will also include 2000-3000SF of commercial space that could potentially house the new corporate offices of Bywater Development and some retail space.

Bywater is no stranger when it comes to Transit Oriented Deve3lopment. they recently completed a 60-unit senior apartment development at the Swansea, Illinois Metro stop. The $11 Million project opened earlier this year. The two projects carry many similarities (design, unit count, being majority affordable, same architect), t the main differences that separate them are that North Hanley is not geared towards seniors and North Hanley is 4 floors in height while Swansea is 3-stories. The rendering below is of the Swansea project.

The project is being designed by Chicago based Worn Jerabek Wiltse (WJW) architects. No timeline has been given on the project. As it currently stands, Bi-State has yet to approve the sale of the 2-acres of land to Bywater. Reception from Metro has been positive so there should be no issue with getting the land sold. The name of the development, University Crossing, is a nod to UMSL, which is located just South of here.

No timeline, cost, or timeline has been given in regards to University Crossing, but those details are expected to become clearer as this project moves through the approval process.

Nearby, Indianapolis based Pearl Companies is planning a $60 Million TOD project at the UMSL South Metro station. The development will sit on land formerly occupied by the Immaculate Heart Convent and by the City of Normandy City Hall and Police Department Buildings. The development will include 237 Apartments, 20 townhomes (both for sale), 21 single family homes, a grocery store, retail space, and some event space.

When all is said and done, both the University Crossing and Pearl Companies project will have added 338 residential units and homes to this section of North County.


The Jefferson Connector Project Appears to Grow in Size

details at cityscene-stl

Quote:

The block of Locust between Jefferson and Beaumont Street, has had big plans for a while now. Since 2017, the stretch has had a project proposed known as "The Jefferson Connector" and the goal of the project was to connect Downtown to Midtown Alley and beyond by redeveloping a sizable block. The development would also act as an anchor for the rest of Midtown Alley. Since it’s announcement in 2017, the project has seen the old Mendenhall Ford building (East of Jefferson), now known as the Martin, renovated into office space. Recently, the old Beaumont Telephone Building, at Beaumont and Locust, has started the redevelopment process with selective demolition within the structure. Across the street, the 2-story section of the 2647-53 Locust building has been renovated into office space and Airbnb units.

As for the rest of the project, things have yet to start. The 5-story section of the 2647-53 Locust building is to become Lofts. The old Ed Roehr building is to become an Airbnb and retail space. The remainder of the block would be home to several retail spaces (including ones within reused shipping containers), a hotel, office space, and a parking garage. Progress on those has been slow but now things appear to be moving again.

Recently, a large STL Made Banner has been put up at the old State Farm Building that shows two new renderings of the project and let's passerby's know about what's coming soon to this corner. Bright colors surely catch the eye and if you're at a stop light, the renderings give you a glimpse at what's coming but not the full picture.

The single floor Candy Building will be overhauled completely and will be directly connected to the Boxyard. Plans here seem to call for a bar and game venue that could potentially be popular. Of course, the eventual tenant of the space will decide what to do with it but it seems like it is being geared toward a bar. The small building will also see a second floor added, which will be clad in Corten Steel. From the second floor, it appears you'll be able to access the greater Boxyard portion of the development.

Besides the radical changes that will take place, a decent amount of green glazed brick and the old Candy sign will remain.

Just East of the old Candy Building will be the Boxyard, a shopping area made up of reused shipping containers. Multiple retailers and even small bars and cafes will be able to call this area home. It will almost certainly be one of the busier portions of the Jefferson Connector project and the greater Midtown Alley area. The Boxyard will be spread out over two floors and will be topped off by a 4-story office building. This office building is a new addition to the Jefferson Connector plans and will add another new building to this stretch of Locust. The office building will also allow for the smaller firms of Midtown Alley to graduate out of their smaller spaces and into a larger spaces without having to leave the neighborhood.

In the center of the Boxyard will be a large open area "plaza" where tables and chairs can be set up. Even small events could be held in this plaza area. Note: The names of businesses on the office building and within the Boxyard are not official businesses. They're there to show how signage would work.

Even with these new renderings showing some progress, other questions appear to be unanswered. Has the cost gone up? If so, by how much? Will the hotel and parking garage retain their design? What will the hotel brand be? Are Trivers and Anthony Duncan still the Architects on this project or was someone else brought in? I believe these answers will be answered soon as the project should begin next year.

The Boxyard will be codeveloped with Tulsa based Ross Group. They developed the Tulsa Boxyard. The 2647-53 Locust Building will be developed by The Joneses, who currently reside in that building. The remainder of the Jefferson Connector project will be developed by Renaissance Development Associates, which is part of Tower Real Estate group. The entire project should wrap up in Late 2021/Early 2022, just in time for the MLS Stadium to open.

i was thinking that there was a previous proposal for this site but there was a freakout over the loss of the public parking lot for the wydown business district.

Balke Brown is planning a 7-floor, 146-unit apartment building on the parking lot between the Euclid+Pine and Del Coronado buildings. They will buy the surface loot from Emerald Equity Group for over $2 Million, The project will cost $37 Million to build. All 146 apartments will be 1 Bedroom units and each will have its own parking space.

The LCRA will review the request for PILOTs for the project. 10 years equaling annual real estate taxes of $850 per unit and the annual increases in the real estate tax of 2.5%. The LCRA will review this at their October 22nd meeting.

I don't know who the architect is or the timeline. Also, sorry for the rendering being junky. It came from the agenda.

I'm 100% for this. Another surface lot in the city's most walkable neighborhood biting the dust would be terrific!

There are only a couple high-profile surface lots left that need to go in the CWE.

Momentum Continues on Laclede’s Landing as Rapid Growth at Blue Stingray Leads to Opening of New Technology Training Hub

link to article from Saint Louis Construction News and Review

Quote:
Laclede’s Landing has long been known as a great place to dine and play, but it’s now becoming one of the city’s sought-after communities for innovative employers, such as Blue Stingray, a booming software development firm specializing in enterprise resource planning (ERP) solutions, e-commerce sites and custom cloud applications. Since moving to The Landing just over three years ago, the company has nearly tripled in sales and continues to increase its revenue every year.

The recent momentum on Laclede’s Landing and its ideal location attracted Blue Stingray founder and CEO Brian Rehg, who has continued to provide the vision and strategy for the agency since its launch in 2009. “It seems like every few months there’s a new tech, marketing or big branding company moving in,” said Rehg. “Between the sun beaming off the cobblestones, big open areas with huge wooden beams, and tech-friendly spaces to build off of, it’s definitely a great place to be...”

More businesses moving their operations to the north riverfront:





In addition, demolition has begun on the $20 million rehab of 2000 N. Broadway into warehouse, light industry, and office space by Blackline Design+Construction. A block away, St. Louis-based Greater Than Games will be moving its operations from the suburbs to 1920 N. Broadway after completion of a $5 million renovation by Blackline.

6-Story Building Proposed at Delmar and Skinker

https://www.cityscene-stl.com/post/6...uilding-delmar

Quote:
A rendering has emerged showing the latest plans for the former Churches Chicken site at Delmar and Skinker in the Loop.

According to marketing materials obtained by CityScene STL, the new building will rise 6-stories at the Southeast corner of Delmar and Skinker and include 4000SF of retail space, parking a hotel and/or some apartments. The site previously had a proposal for a single story Chase Bank, but those plans were not viewed favorably by the neighbors, Loop business owners, and urbanists in general. Prior to Chase Bank, there was a proposal for a Ferris Wheel and Beer Garden.

The latest proposal apparently comes from Green Street, the developer behind the Armory, some projects in Forest Park Southeast and a codeveloper in the Chroma project. 6190 Delmar, as it is being marketed, will adequately address the Delmar frontage as well as a portion of the Skinker frontage.

Skinker will be home to the parking garage entrance, which is located on the second floor, and the entrance to the lobby for either the hotel or apartments.

6190 Delmar will rise catty corner from Pace Properties' Link in the Loop project, which is anchored by CVS Pharmacy. Just East of here, the stalled Magic Mini Golf project will hopefully reside. That is another one of Joe Edwards' creations. Other recent additions on this block include the Everly on the Loop (2017) and the Moonrise Hotel (2008).

No timeline has been given on the project, but marketing materials specify a Q2 2021 delivery. Sources tell me that the building, as it appears in the rendering, will be different. The architecture firm, which wasn't named but is St. Louis based, is completing the latest design. 6190 Delmar will have to be reviewed by the Skinker-Debaliviere Neighborhood and other boards in the City of St. Louis. No word has been given on whether or not Green Street will seek tax incentives for this project.

I have reached out to Green Street for more information and have yet to hear back. This story will be updated when I do hear back.


This is the corner:



And it's catty-corner from this:

this is great. when you are viewing this parcel from the top of the moonrise, it looks like you are looking across into an east coast city looking into skinker-debaliviere and i think this scale is entirely appropriate but imagine parkview (university city) might freak.

that is a massive proposal for a inner/middle ring suburb (that isn't adjacent to the city) downtown.

Oh please, Kirkwood's alleged small-town charm was gone the day the shooting at city hall happened years back. It's just a bunch of folks that don't want change, which is hardly shocking in St. Louis County.

kind of ridiculous that there is a walmart within spitting distance of old town kirkwood and they are freaking out about a walkable development.

that being said, entirely predictable. i guess the question is...do you try to shoot for what you think will make the NIMBY-gamut, or do you go big and scale back (and risk the entire project "poisoned?")
