A growing cluster of bio-science, technology, health and research buildings on 200-acres of a former industrial corridor, was founded in 2002 as an innovation district known as CORTEX (Center of Research, Technological and Entrepreneurial Exchange) Innovation Community. It is also known as St. Louis Innovation District.

Helping its growing recognition, the innovation community is flanked by the medical campuses of Washington University on the west and St. Louis University on the east - both world class medical institutions.

With $350-million in new and reuse facilities and infrastructure investments, the community is now over 1-million square feet. More facilities, amenities and a MetroLink Station are planned for the community within the next 15-years. CORTEX's master plan has been described as a $3.2 billion redevelopment project.

Below are some scenes and progress shots of new additions. Cambridge Innovation Center has signed on as the major anchor tenant for @4240.

Site work proceeding on apartment project
December 02, 2013 3:50 pm • By Tim Bryant
St. Louis Post-Dispatch

A Detroit-area company is getting underway with an 82-unit expansion of its West End City Apartments development on Union Boulevard.

The site is just north of Forest Park. Site preparation has begun and a groundbreaking ceremony is scheduled for Dec. 16.

Village Green, of Farmington Hills, Mich., has owned the West End apartments for a decade. The company first planned the new project before housing markets collapsed in 2008.

Posting the flyer a day late, but groundbreaking was yesterday on West End City II. Village Green owns a cluster of buildings in St. Louis' Central Corridor, which were finely renovated and modernized in the early-to-mid 2000's.

After searching for a St. Louis site for nearly 10-years, IKEA is finally a-go in St. Louis. IKEA has selected an urban site - one of only a few in the United States. The St. Louis store will be a "super regional" location.

Construction on the new store will start in the summer of 2014, with the new location opening in the fall of 2015.

The new St. Louis store will cover 380,000 square feet spread across two stories. The project will also include a 1,250-space parking garage one level below the store.

The store will be in the Central Corridor, which is booming with new and re-purposed development - residential, commercial, science labs, hotels, arts venues, retail etc. A Whole Foods store will open in the Central West End in 2015. In recent years, retailers such as Lululemon and AG Adriano Goldschmied have opened boutiques in the Central West End.

Here's an updated rendering for Minneapolis-based Opus Group's proposed residential building.

Proposed for a high-profile intersection (Euclid @ Lindell) in the Central West End is a 12-story, U-winged, 217-unit, market-rate residential building. The project will include 240-parking spaces and street-level retail.

Previously proposed was an 8-story, 177-unit, U-winged building.

The project's working name is Lindell Residences.

Below, the $75-million, 177-unit City Walk on Euclid - in the Central West End - broke ground last week and is officially under construction.

Whole Foods will occupy 28,500 square feet on the first floor plus 10,000 square feet of space below street level. That level will have direct access to the underground portion of City Walk's parking garage. An elevator will connect the store's two floors.

This project is one block south from the proposed Lindell Residences (shown above) and four blocks west from the proposed 260-unit West Pine Lofts.

A number of projects are either under construction or proposed for the University of Missouri-St. Louis - Missouri's 3rd largest university by enrollment.

Construction has started on a $36 million Recreation and Wellness Center on the north campus of the University of Missouri-St. Louis.

The 94,000-square-foot center is being built on a site that had been occupied by two parking lots, just south of the Millennium Student Center. Amenities in the new building will include a three-court gymnasium, six-lane swimming pool, training rooms and an elevated jogging track. The building is expected to be ready for use in the fall of 2015.

St. Louis-based Cannon Design is the project architect.

See More renderings here.

Three Story Retail/Office Building Proposed for Chouteau and Taylor in Forest Park Southeast (904-920 S. Taylor)


The same developers that have proposed a 4-story 107-room Hilton Home Hotel near the intersection of Taylor and Chouteau are now proposing to construct a 3-story, 10,800 square foot mixed use (retail/office) building flush with the corner (addressed as 904-920 S. Taylor).

The Forest Park Southeast Development Committee will review this project and consider offering tax abatement to it at its monthly meeting this coming Tuesday, December 17, 2013 at 5:30 p.m.

The agenda for the meeting shows a site plan and rendering:

SITE PLAN




The proposed 3-story building would sit just to the south of the Hilton Home Hotel and just to the west of the now completed Aventura residential complex.

Three New Single Family Homes Proposed for Forest Park Southeast

Three new homes have been proposed for construction by Pagano Land Development and HDC Homes without Limits on three vacant lots in the Forest Park Southeast neighborhood. The lots are located at 4401 Gibson, 4403 Gibson, and 4448 Chouteau.

The Forest Park Southeast Development Committee will review the proposal and consider offering tax abatement for the three new homes at its monthly meeting this coming Tuesday, December 17, 2013 at 5:30 p.m.

The homes would be fully-accessible and green-certified and would clock in at 2,200 square feet each.

The model submitted to the Development Committee to demonstrate the design of the new homes was Pagano’s previous construction at Macklind and Magnolia in the Southwest Garden neighborhood (see below):

FOX Sports Midwest to build studio at Ballpark Village
Ballpark Village's Featured Entertainment Area Will Be Named FOX Sports Midwest Live!



ST. LOUIS -
The St. Louis Cardinals and The Cordish Companies announced today that FOX Sports Midwest, the television home of the Cardinals, will build a new studio in Ballpark Village and that the 20,000 sq/ft entertainment marketplace that is the heart of the district will be known as FOX Sports Midwest LIVE! as part of a multi-year naming rights agreement.

"We are very excited to have FOX Sports Midwest as our naming rights partner of LIVE! in Ballpark Village," said Bill DeWitt III, the President of the St. Louis Cardinals. "FOX Sports Midwest's involvement will bring tremendous excitement and exposure to Ballpark Village year round."

FOX Sports Midwest expects to produce more than 300 shows per year at the new studio that will be located on the second level of Ballpark Village, between the Cardinals Nation restaurant and Budweiser Brew House.

"We are proud to help bring Ballpark Village to life with the addition of FOX Sports Midwest Live!," said FOX Sports Midwest General Manager and Senior Vice President Jack Donovan. "We're looking forward to moving into our new studio home in Ballpark Village and helping make FOX Sports Midwest Live! the premiere entertainment destination in our region."

The new FOX Sports Midwest studio will feature a look into Busch Stadium behind the anchor desk. Meanwhile, visitors inside Ballpark Village will be able to watch FOX Sports Midwest's shows live and cameras inside and around the entertainment district will show the game day atmosphere. The Cardinals Live pregame and postgame shows will air live from the studio for home and road games.

The studio isn't the only high-tech feature of the two level 20,000 square foot entertainment market place. The FOX Sports Midwest Live! space features a stage for live concerts and performances, a state-of-the-art 40 foot diagonal high definition LED screen, immersive LED ribbon boards that will encircle the two level space, a 200 seat restaurant, VIP seating area and a plush soft-seating bar and lounge for the ultimate watching experience - all of which will sit under a 100 foot long retractable glass roof - one of the largest of its kind in the country.

"This one-of-a kind venue will draw millions of visitors year round as fans gather for sporting events, concerts, festivals, and great meals," said Chase Martin, Ballpark Village Project Manager. "LIVE! in cities around the country including Baltimore, Philadelphia, Kansas City and L.A. is synonymous with world-class entertainment and we are confident that FOX Sports Midwest LIVE! will take the standard to an entirely new level."

A VISION FOR PARKVIEW GARDENS (DRAFT PLAN)

Project Overview

The City of University City, Missouri has been awarded a $315,687 grant for “Parkview Gardens: A Sustainable and Accessible Neighborhood” to create a redevelopment and sustainability plan for the Parkview Gardens area of the City that will be leveraged with $317,813 in local cash and in-kind contributions.

This project will expand upon recent planning efforts in the Parkview Gardens area. The City and area stakeholders recognized that Parkview Gardens was in need of fundamental revitalization, so in February 2009 the City initiated a partnership with Washington University in St. Louis and the Parkview Gardens Association to undertake a long-range design and implementation plan for the three municipal parks in the Parkview Gardens neighborhood.

The Parkview Gardens Association is comprised of landlords, business owners and residents of the area. It has been working to maintain and enhance the neighborhood for more than 28 years and has bought and renovated over 20 buildings in the area. A special tax on local property owners and businesses, administered by two Special Business Districts, pays for these neighborhood improvements.

There are several interrelated issues that need to be addressed in order to ensure the sustainability of the Parkview Gardens neighborhood:

a lack of neighborhood connectivity
a need for additional affordable housing
a need to improve the quality of existing open spaces so that they can be better utilized for both recreation and transportation

It's great the Forest Park Southeast neighborhood is humming along with all of these new infill projects. The neighborhood is really transforming. New bakeries, cafes, restaurants, a new brewery, bars, residential, historic rehabs, etc. etc. - and now a small mixed-use development.

The new boutique 107-room, Hilton Home2 will fill in an empty corner and it will be visible from the interstate.

I'm sure families visiting the nearby medical center will cross the interstate and utilize this hotel.

This is good. It will be an attraction - definitely on game days and likely year 'round.

Now the Cardinals and Cordish just need to announce what Phase II of Ballpark Village will be.

Some Phase II renderings have surfaced, but not of the structure itself. Based on the renderings, Phase II looks mixed-use with residential/office.

Downtown St. Louis is in desperate need of new construction. Personally, I don't think developers or lenders are bullish enough on downtown. The vacancy rate is extremely low and I know plenty of people that are on waiting list to move downtown, so they chose other areas of the city. This city has had a pent up demand for downtown/loft style living for decades, but the city has only recently started to meet this demand.

There is also a strong demand for new, modern towers or apartment building downtown, that is currently not being met. A lot of people have no idea that downtown is booming and its partly because they don't see the shiny new towers that go up in cities like Atlanta, Dallas, Denver, Minneapolis etc. What they fail to realize is that St. Louis has added thousands of units over the past decade, but it was in the form of loft conversions. Very few cities have the large number of 19th and early 20th century warehouses St. Louis has. When a city like Nashville or Portland builds 200 units downtown its in the form of a 20 story tower with a small footprint, in St. Louis its an 8 story warehouse rehab that's the size of a city block.

Maybe its just my own opinion, but I think they hit the nail on the head for how new infill mid rises in CWE should look. The (brick?) color matches with the colors of the 1930s era midrises nearby but modern aspects such as the large glass and the black balconies make it feel like its not totally a museum replica. Sure, it's not some modern all glass stunner, but I think I'd rather wait for a statement piece of architecture in CWE to come from a new high rise on kinghshighway near lindell anyway, which can't be too far down the road considering how on fire the central west end is right now.

^I think so. Earlier proposals called for taller glass structures in the 26-28-story range but the CWE Historic District gave those proposals the boot.

I'm glad Opus didn't give up on the corner and so far there's been no outcry from the historic district about the latest proposal being "too tall" and not up to district form-based codes.

South of the historic district (south of Lindell Blvd.) is greater potential for taller glassier modern high-rises.

NextSTL.com is reporting that a $350-million multi-phased TOD proposal called The Crossing in Clayton has been proposed for downtown Clayton. "The first phase will cost $70 million and feature construction of a 24-story luxury apartment tower."

Quote:
A $350 million Clayton mixed-use project is expected to break ground in late spring 2014. The multi-phase project is being spearheaded by Chesterfield-based real estate firm GTE Properties and HDA Architects as the design lead. The Crossing in Clayton transit oriented development project is adjacent to the Clayton Central Avenue MetroLink stop. It is bounded by Meramec Ave. on the west, Bonhomme Ave. on the north, Central Ave. on the east, and the 1280-space Shaw Park Municipal Garage to the south.

GTE and Chicago-based development firm CA Ventures have been in talks with the City of Clayton to make sure the project meets land use goals recently adopted by the city. "This will be the Chicago firm’s first project in the area," said Executive Vice President Jerry Crylen who leads investment, development, and acquisition of CA Ventures multi-family practice. Formerly, Crylen lead Duke Realty Corporations St. Louis office chaired the Urban Land Institute’s St. Louis District Council.

Commercial building proposed for FPSE
December 19, 2013 5:15 pm
By Tim Bryant
St. Louis Post-Dispatch



Plans are moving ahead for a three-story commercial building developers hope to pop out of the ground at Chouteau and Taylor avenues in the Forest Park Southeast neighborhood.

After tweaking the building's plans, developers got the project's approval by the Forest Park Southeast Development Committee. The panel gave its nod to the project this week after the developer—Taylor-Papin LLC—agreed give the building an all-brick exterior, made some landscape changes and deleted plans for a fence.

Taylor-Papin wants to construct the three-story building next to the 107-room extended stay hotel it plans to build in the 900 block of South Taylor.

The site of the four-story, $12.8 million hotel is along Interstate 64 and just west of the Aventura apartments, in the 4400 block of Chouteau Avenue. Taylor-Papin is behind all the projects.

Next up for the Taylor-Papin plan is a hearing Jan. 7 before the city's Board of Public Service, says Brooks Goedeker, executive director of Park Central Development.
