I got a good laugh out of that.

Anyway, STL has a LOT of nice, smaller projects that, as a whole, are going to make a big difference in the city. Impressive.

nice projects! what's up with the Lofts at the Highlands? it looks suburban. i hate it when developers play up "urban living!" then put a moat of asphalt around the project. there are a couple in KC like that, and probably every other city too.

"abortion kills babies?" is that part of a loft development?

very impressive list though. st. louis is coming back in a big way.

That bugs me so much. There is another sign on the other side of the building that reads: "Keep your laws off my body" It's a strange place to see these signs, but they have been up forever.

I also am not a fan of the Highlands development. Who would want to live in an office park.

I went to the Top of the Riverfront (Millennium Hotel) on Saturday. This restaurant revolves 360 degrees, providing spectacular, panoramic views of Downtown. You can really see the renovations and improvements that are happening downtown. A really unique experience. Check it out the next time you are in STL.

It makes me very excited to see so many quality developments going on in St. Louis.

A couple of questions:

1) Is the Highlands development the one off Highway 40 near the Science Center? I believe I saw that going up last time I was there (late January). The location struck me as a very poor place to put up "loft style living" because it seemed very isolated from anything resembling an urban environment.

2) What is the latest on the SLU arena? I inquired when I was back in January (I am a SLU grad) and I was told that there was a snag in the financing and that they still have not broken ground on this. When the plans were announced, I got a mailing from the school (asking for money) with the dog and pony show about the arena. It looked awesome inside and out. Exactly what is needed in SLU and in midtown. SLU is the key to revitalizing midtown...I would assume the city and the school could work together to make sure whatever needs to get done gets done. So WTF is the holdup, and is this project in danger of not getting off the ground?

YES, it is. The Highlands consist of three Loft Buildings a new Hampton Hotel and one office building. All buildings are 5-8 stories total each. Strange area - but if you live in STL - traffic and commute wise this is a great place to live on the south cusp of Forest Park and The Central West End. Easy Metro Bus and link to METRO Trains/station at Forest Park.

Not a snag in "financing" as much as TIF money from the city. The project is happening, just taking some "political" manuevering - ya know what I mean???!!!

thanks a ton Citylover! It's always nice to step back and see an overview of all the development activity happening, I can't help but think that St. Louis City will have a different vibe (for the better) in 5 years once these projects are up and running.

I agree it's a shame about the Highland's design, but that project has been in the development tubes for a couple of years (thus the complete cluelessness in urban design). The location itself is pretty good, the site plan is a different story. I can't help but wonder what could have been if the old arena had been saved for some other purpose (that's what this site used to house).


anywho.

I have a question, for all the stuff happening on Wash U's Medical Campus, are they tearing buildings down for the new development? If so any pics of what's being torn down? (some of the buildings i could care less about, but others look really nice, even as part of the Wash U Med Borg).

Fellow Billiken,

The university is still raising funds - once they hit a certain target amount (I think it's $30-$35 million) they will start construction. I believe that they are about halfway to reaching that figure, but things seem to be heating up.

They have been making progress lately - an anonymous donor has stepped up with a matching gift of up to $2 million (and possibly more), and the university has been selling bricks that from what I've head have been bringing in approx. $100k a week. Once they get the naming rights sold, I think we'll really see some progress.

This thing will happen, it's just a matter of when, not if. The university's first priority has been the new research building on the med campus, with the arena as a secondary concern.

Kiel Opera House

Any idea when the Kiel Opera House will re-open or what the status is on this project? I have seen no visual improvements from the exterior.

Larry Rice's bid to acquire the adjacent building for a homeless shelter has been shot down, so I would guess that we'll start to see work being done soon.

Unless Rice appeals...

New downtown lofts stay 'true'
By Tavia Evans
Of the Post-Dispatch
05/31/2005


Building at 1635 Washington Ave.

Developer Andy Hillin says "true loft spaces" - spacious floor plans, high ceilings and open ductwork - are in the works for his newest property, 1635 Washington Avenue.

Hillin bought the building Tuesday from developer David Jump, who owns a handful of properties along the street. Hillin declined to say how much he paid.

At 1635 Washington, 96 residential condominiums are planned; units will range from 1,000 to 1,500 square feet. Upgrades will offer buyers the option of creating an office or an extra bedroom from parts of a larger living space.

"It's a slightly different approach, as the cost of buildings and acquisitions goes up," said Vince Ebersoldt, project architect for Rosemann & Associates, which will design the units.

"It allows the buyer to really personalize it, so if people want a true loft or want to have several bedrooms, they can have it," he said. "Developers are saying, 'Let's leave the upgrades up to the owner and let them buy it,' to keep base costs down."

Paric Construction will build the units. U.S. Bank will provide financing for the $25 million development, including a $14.5 million construction loan and a bridge loan until the project is approved for state historic tax credits. Hillin said he has applied for $4.2 million in state historic tax credits as well as tax increment financing from the city.

Built in 1918, the building once housed Central Shoe Co.

Units will list from $150,000 for one bedroom to $225,000 for larger, corner condos. Most units will include balconies; a rooftop pool and clubhouse will be added. The building also will have 99 parking spaces in the basement, ground floor and mezzanine levels.

"This new building complements other projects (Hillin is) doing on the street, and he's been on the forefront of getting stuff done on Washington Avenue," said Walker Gaffney, assistant vice president at U.S. Bank Community Development Corp.

Hillin partnered with developer John Carroll and McGowan Brothers Development to renovate the Rudman Building, 1228 Washington. He also completed the Garment Row Lofts, 1312 Washington, and is working on the Window Lofts, 1601 Washington.

Farther west beyond the loft district, Hillin is partnering with McGowan & Walsh LLC to turn the former Guth Lighting complex of five buildings into 60 rental apartments.

Apartments will vary from 800 to 1,200 square feet. Inside, a full-size gym is planned.

Hillin's firm, Jacob Development, and McGowan & Walsh co-own the property. For now, the building is being called the George E. Walsh Building, named for the father of Nat Walsh, a partner in the firm.

Financing for the renovation, projected at $20 million, has yet to be worked out, Hillin said.

The apartments will be aimed toward young professionals and students, because of the proximity to St. Louis University.

"We're pushing the area with one of the first projects on the other side of Jefferson (Avenue), and it lays out perfect for rental units," he said. "It's farther west and not in the core of loft development. I think we can create a community for the old Guth buildings."
