Six new single-family market-rate homes are planned for the 4200 block of Maryland in the Central West End. The first phase of the Maryland East development, which is already under construction, consists of four new homes each with three bedrooms, two and a half baths and detached 2-car garages. The developer is Universatile Development and the architect is Barry Nelson.

Jeff Winzerling President of Universatile Development said the display unit will be ready by the end of the year. Phase two consists of two additional lots on the same block.

It is now called CHROMA (formerly Chouteau's Grove).

The $61-million, project will include 235+ apartments, 18,000 SF of first floor retail, structured parking and an additional 1.5 acres for future development.

Located on the burgeoning Grove strip, CHROMA will feature a resort-quality pool, fitness and clubroom amenities, multiple courtyards and mini-parks.

The project is just blocks away from CORTEX - St. Louis' primary innovation district.

Loews has announced that it will be the Hotel operator at Ballpark Village. The first Live! By Loews will open in late 2019 at the corner of 8th and Clark. It will cost $65 Million. In addition to this, team President Bill DeWitt the 3rd teased an upcoming announcement for other tenants, presumably those who will occupy the Office Building.

Website: Soulard Apartments

126-luxury units.

Soulard is one of St. Louis' oldest neighborhoods.

Soulard (soo-lard /su.lɑrd/) is a historic French neighborhood in St. Louis, Missouri. It is named for Antoine Soulard, who first began to develop the land. Soulard was a surveyor for the Spanish government and a refugee from the French Revolution in the 1790s.

Often times thought of (or referred to) as St. Louis' French Quarter, Soulard is largely a residential neighborhood whose many businesses include restaurants, bars, and the North American headquarters of Anheuser-Busch.

Too bad the state couldn't shift that off ramp slightly to the left and free up space to properly reinsert the lost street on that side of the development.

As the Central West End (CWE) upscales in residential, more higher-end retailers are beginning to find the City of St. Louis - not the suburbs - an attractive option for their stores.

The first location of Bonobos in Missouri is opening in Maryland Plaza in St. Louis' Central West End (CWE).

Also, renown Dutch retailer, SuitSupply, is opening its first Missouri location in Maryland Plaza (CWE). Twitter feeds are abuzz about other rumored retailers.











Below, are renderings for 2-level SuitSupply store opening this winter.

According to rezoning documents submitted to the city, a single floor retail building will replace a vacant gas station at 6424-36 Chippewa Street on St. Louis' South side. According to dbinsouthcity on UrbanSTL.com, the two tenants are expected to be the City's first Five Guys Burgers and Fries and a Smoothie King. The meeting is scheduled for November 1st. This will add to the growing Fast Food Market near the Hampton and Chippewa intersection. The latest additions are a Raising Canes Chicken Finger joint and an Under Construction Chick-Fil-A.

Gate District Rising: More Modern Infill on Lafayette

https://nextstl.com/2017/10/gate-dis...ill-lafayette/

Quote:
“How does the modern fit into the historic?” asks Mark Keoshkorian, who is just completing the first two units of a 12-unit project at Lafayette and California. It’s a question not always allowed in a city filled with historic districts, many requiring replica infill based on a historic model example.
Quote:
Keoshkorian’s Metamorphi Development has completed at least a dozen houses between Compton and Jefferson. At 2831 Lafayette, a historic renovation gained a modern addition. Next door, a couple who sold their house in the neighborhood bought a vacant lot. Though not a Metamorphi project, the couple is building their modern dream home. Second Empire Victorians continue to see renovation along these blocks, as do brick and cast iron storefronts. Keoshkorian dreams of one day renovating the turreted Garavaglia Quality Foods building at the corner of Nebraska. For now, the Garavaglia family still keeps an eye on the place.
Quote:
Keoshkorian’s current project will be twelve units in six buildings designed by architect Dave Mastin of St. Louis Design Alliance. The next two buildings will share a central courtyard. Formerly a school blacktop surrounded by a ten foot chain link fence, the site was purchased from the St. Louis Public Schools. The single family unit at 2757 Lafayette is listed for $415,000 and is built around a custom glulam, wire and wood central staircase.
Quote:
The neighborhood along Lafayette is changing. An Aveda salon is open across the street, while Bob Cassily’s former studio stands a block east. And while the neighborhood is seeing a $500 million investment along its western edge with SSM’s rebuilding of St. Louis University Hospital, the genius of Lafayette Avenue is the way numerous small projects are creating a unique urban space. The Dominicans still pray every morning and evening in their priory at the western end of the street. They built a modern addition, too. The historic mansion next door to it at 3259 Lafayette is undergoing a complete renovation.
Quote:
At the opposite end of the street, you can buy a giant (if lightly damaged) terra cotta pharaoh head at the architectural salvage shop that opens on Saturdays. The Barr branch of the St. Louis Public Library has computers and free wifi. And while there is little retail in the neighborhood, there is a hotel. Small businesses like law firms and the offices of Bailey’s Restaurants fill many of the storefronts along Lafayette. And people always love the salmon quesadillas at Ranells Market at the corner of Compton.

Plans Unveiled for New STLCC-Forest Park Health Sciences Center

https://nextstl.com/2017/10/plans-un...iences-center/





Unfortunately...

Quote:
A midcentury landmark will fall to the wrecking ball to make room for new green space along the south side of Forest Park according to plans by St. Louis Community College.
Quote:
Noted Modernist Harry Weese designed the Forest Park campus between 1964 and 1967 with his brother Ben Weese (later one of the Chicago Seven) and Dan Kiley, the Father of Modern Landscape Architecture. (link: https://nextstl.com/2017/04/weese-ki...us-threatened/) Kiley is known locally for his design of the Gateway Arch grounds.

I think the real estate market - particularly in west St. Louis county - is pretty hot now.

That residential complex is not even a year old, I think.

Repurposing that quarry was genius. That quarry area is booming.

It is near Scottrade HQs (soon to be offices for TD Ameritrade), Charter Communications, Edward Jones etc.

A new hotel at the site is coming soon too.

Today, more information regarding Ballpark Village Phase 2 got out courtesy of the Cordish Companies. New Renderings came with it as well. Basically, One Life Fitness, PwC and Wahlburger are all confirmed tenants of the $260 Million expansion. They come as a compliment to the Live! By Loews announced on the 4th of October. Construction is supposed to begin the December and wrap up in early 2020.

Here is the story http://www.buildingstlnews.com/the-b...llpark-village

And here are the new Renderings...




Now this last rendering is pretty interesting as it shows a new perspective looking South down Broadway at the 30 Floor Tower. Really shows the scale that it will be viewed from when on the street at Broadway and Walnut.



Based on how things are doing elsewhere in the Midwest, if this Phase of Ballpark Village does well, which all signs point to it being pretty good, it could spur more downtown STL construction and push to a full build out of Ballpark Village by 2026. The area around the stadium will also become hotter real estate on non-game days and create a entirely new neighborhood that is alive year round.
