A five-story, 55-unit mixed use building has been proposed by Forest Park Southeast developers Amy and Amrit Gill for 4400 Manchester in the Grove. The building would house the development offices of the Gills (Restoration St. Louis) on the ground floor as well as a pizza/pasta restaurant, with 55 universal design apartment units above. The new structure would face the under-construction Urban Chestnut Brewing facility on the north side of Manchester.
Below is a rendering of the structure, which would subsume two adjacent parcels at 4400-08 and 4410-12 Manchester. Both are presently vacant lots, though it is unclear if nearby buildings to the south (on Swan Avenue) will remain or will be replaced with parking.
Two substance abuse treatment centers to be administered by Preferred Family Healthcare are underway in south St. Louis. The first, for adolescents, will be constructed on a vacant lot on Gravois just west of Grand (3634 Gravois) in the Tower Grove South neighborhood. The second, for adults, is currently under construction at 4066 Dunnica in the Dutchtown neighborhood.
See more information on the two centers from a Press Release dated November 1, 2013:
The Dunnica Ave. adult facilities will be a 24,000-square-foot building situated on 1.15 acres, featuring 16 residential beds, 12 offices, 2 nurse’s stations, doctor’s office, community/recreation rooms and enclosed courtyard area. Construction will be headed up by T.S. Banze, and costs are estimated at $5.8 million. The building should be completed by September 2014. Once the facilities open, it expects to treat approximately 900 consumers annually.
The Gravois Ave. adolescent facilities will be a 24,000-square-foot building situated on 1.5 acres, with many of the same amenities as the Dunnica Ave. location, with the addition of a family visitation area. Construction will be headed up by RC Excavating, and costs are estimated at $5.6 million. The building should be completed by June 2015. Once open, the adolescent facilities will treat approximately 120 consumers annually.
A rendering of the Dunnica facility is shown below:
A rendering of the Gravois facility is shown below:
The two facilities will be located approximately one mile from one another.
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:

Two new single family homes have been constructed at 5224 and 5226 Daggett on the Hill at a cost of $260,000 each. The developer is Pagano Land Development, LLC.
Below is a photograph of the two recently completed buildings:
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.
Vatterott plans to build 25 homes in the City’s Gate District. Read more about the project by clicking the linked title to the Post-Dispatch article.

A new CVS Store located at 3925 Lindell in the Central West End neighborhood is now complete. The building was constructed at a cost of $2.8 million.
Below is a photograph of the new CVS, which sits just east of the newly reconstructed 3949 Apartments.
CVS caused controversy in the Central West End when it proposed the demolition of three buildings, including the old St. Louis Housing Authority headquarters, near the corner of Lindell and Sarah. After being rebuffed by neighbors who were concerned with its drive through and its liquor sales, CVS set its sights a block to the east—the AAA building, a darling of the St. Louis preservation community. The City’s Preservation Board denied that demolition, and ultimately the iconic round AAA building was spared.
Instead, CVS sought to tear down the nondescript, neighboring AAA garage structure and build on that site. Nearby neighbors expressed a wish for an “urban-formatted” store flush with the sidewalk. Finally, then, CVS got its Lindell store approved. Read the nextSTL description of the CVS saga here.
A $130,000 building permit has been issued to construct a new single family home at 4211 Washington in the Gaslight Square section of the Central West End. Construction has begun.
Below is a recent photograph of the first of four planned new single family homes of a contemporary design:
A rendering of the four planned homes is shown below. The leftmost structure in the rendering is 4211 Washington.
Developer UIC has provided an update on the construction of a new single family home located at 4165 Olive in the Gaslight Square area of the Central West End. The home was constructed at an approximate cost of $180,000, per the building permit amount.
Below is a photograph obtained from UIC’s Botanical Grove Homes Facebook page. The view is looking northeast from the intersection of Whittier and Olive.
