Favorite Development Projects of 2018

Well it’s that time of year again for us to discuss our favorite developments taking place, planned or underway in St. Louis in 2018.

This will be our third year of doing this fun series of posts.

Our 2016 and 2017 lists were chock full o’ hits.

It was another great year for St. Louis development proposals and actions. This is our third consecutive year where it was relatively easy to come up with 20 projects.

We had to cut several as they maybe didn’t have the impact that others do…a good problem to have.

Here’s our 2018 list in no particular order:

  1. Chippewa Park - Gravois Park and Dutchtown

  2. Forest Park-DeBaliviere Metro Station Mixed Use - Skinker DeBaliviere/DeBaliviere Place

  3. Delmar and Euclid Development(s) - Central West End

  4. Crescent Building - Cortex

  5. Locust Collaboration District Center - Downtown West

  6. Steelcote Building - Midtown

  7. Arco Avenue Apartments - Forest Park Southeast

  8. Grandview Arcade Building - Gravois Park

  9. Ranier One Apartments - DeBaliviere Place

  10. Shepard School - Marine Villa

  11. Mendenhall Building on Locust - Downtown West

  12. Koman Building - Cortex

  13. DeBaliviere Bank Building - Skinker DeBaliviere

  14. Kranzenburg Arts Foundation Homes - Gravois Park

  15. Clifton Heights Park Master Plan - Clifton Heights

  16. West Pine and Sarah Modern Townhomes - Central West End

  17. Morgan Ford and Wyoming new meets old - Tower Grove South

  18. Vacant Lots to Townhomes - Skinker Debaliviere

  19. Ronald McDonald House - Forest Park Southeast

  20. Habitat for Humanity - Carondelet and the Patch

Updated December 29 to include a project I mistakenly overlooked:

21. St. Ferdinand Homes II - The Ville and Greater Ville

So we’ll go through one by one and do a separate post, discussing why we like the project on each project or proposal. We’ll take a look at how the neighborhood looks around the site and what it will likely bring in the future.

Yay, this is going to be fun.

A big thanks to NextSTL and Jacob Barker at the St. Louis Post-Dispatch for reporting on these developments throughout the year(s). These are my two main sources of information for St. Louis development.
