Continuing with our favorite project announcements from 2017, we move to the Clayton-Tamm Neighborhood in the Dogtown area of St. Louis. A former lumberyard at 6300 Clayton Avenue has sat vacant for years.
The property is a huge vacant lot eyesore. So it is with much joy, we read of a substantial upgrade for this important part of the neighborhood.
From a deadzone to a $25M mixed use building with 100 apartments and 16,000 square feet of retail.
You read that right, city lovers, underground parking! And the building uses the modern/contemporary look so common in these times.
What a difference this will make to an already great neighborhood. Maybe some day we'll read of the St. Louis Zoo activating the property they own in the neighborhood, and things really take off.
What great news for 2017. This five story building will be fun to watch as it rises over Dogtown.
