Forest Park Southeast’s Station G Building May Soon See Rehab into 11 Apartments

The Station G Building (4427 Chouteau) on the old gasometer site in Forest Park Southeast may soon see an $800,000 rehab into 11 apartments. A permit was applied for by developer Station G LLC on November 15, 2012. It has not yet been issued.

Below is a photograph of Station G from nextSTL. Click here for an earlier nextSTL story showing that the Station G building was once threatened with demolition.

The building is the last remnant of Laclede Gas’s presence of the site. Click here (Built St. Louis) to see pictures of the old gasometer structure that once loomed above both Station G and Interstate 64/40.

The remaining Station G building will be entirely surrounded by the 101-unit Aventura at Forest Park development, which is progressing quickly. Per this July 2012 St. Louis Post-Dispatch article, Aventura developers sought to control this building as well but could not agree on a price. It is likely that the building would have then been demolished as well.
