Renderings have been released for the $50 million expansion of the St. Louis College of Pharmacy campus. From their website:
The building will be placed on the east side of campus along Taylor Avenue. There will be 213,000 square feet of floor space, which will include a large auditorium, several large classrooms, smaller classrooms, study areas, and 30,000 square feet of research space. The library will more than triple in size, and there will also be a welcome center for prospective students and their families.
Below are renderings of the proposed new construction:

Salvation Army’s $6+ million rehab of the old Harbor Light building at 3000 Washington into 58 affordable apartments is moving forward, per a recent building permit issuance. The development was one of 14 projects in the region to receive funding from the Missouri Housing Development Commission earlier this year.
Below is a Geo St. Louis photograph of the main structure, located at the corner of Washington and North Garrison:
The building just to the west, shown in the photo below, will also be rehabbed:

Diversified Real Estate Group has plans for five new homes located at 1216 through 1228 Dolman in the Lafayette Square Historic District. A $2 million building permit is on file with the City’s Building Division to construct the five new single family homes. The permit has not yet been issued and must be approved by Zoning since these lots are zoned C - Multiple Family Residential.
The real estate listings for four of the five lots are currently active. Click here to see one such listing while the link is still live. The homes are being marketed as 3 bed, 3 bathroom structures (around 2,100 square feet) priced in the mid-400s.
Below is the sample photo used on the real estate listing, which may be an indication of the style of construction:

Two new, unique homes have been proposed for construction in the Benton Park neighborhood. Both homes are to be discussed (and potentially given preliminary approval) at the City’s monthly Preservation Board meeting (Monday, October 28th, 2013 at 4pm). Both homes—single family buildings—have been designed by Killeen Studio Architects.
To read the city’s Cultural Resources Office (CRO) agenda for the Preservation Board meeting, in which CRO preservation experts review proposals and make recommendations to the Preservation Board, click here. The renderings below have been obtained from this document.
The first proposed single family is located on two adjacent lots addressed as 2830-34 and 2836 McNair. Interestingly, the building has a decidedly industrial/institutional design even though it would sit mid-block. The two historic model examples (on which this proposal’s design was based) that were provided to Cultural Resources Staff are both warehouse buildings.
Below is a drawing of the front facade:
CRO Staff recommend preliminary approval of the design, subject to final review of design and materials.
The second proposed single family in the neighborhood is located on four adjacent lots (2841 through 2847 Indiana)—just two blocks west of the McNair proposal.
In this case, the applicants seek to build an ADA-compliant, fully accessible one-story home across several lots.
Below is a drawing of the Indiana proposal:
The central portion of the sprawling building appears to be recessed. Again, the building has a semi-industrial feel in the middle of an otherwise residential block (notably, though, this proposed construction backs up to a five story warehouse building on South Jefferson).
Again, CRO recommends approval subject to staff review of final details and materials.
The Preservation Board meeting is on Monday, October 28, 2013, 4pm at 1520 Market, Suite 2000 in the large board room.
