Mapping Midtown Development

Midtown Station_mixed-use map

With news of Pace Properties' Midtown Station, the vortex of Cortex and word that some Swedish retail thing is set to put a stake in the ground, Midtown St. Louis is quickly changing from a confusing mix of abandoned industrial sites, parking lots and vacant land into a confusing mix of retail, residential and office proposals. There's nothing definitively right or wrong about any of the proposals, but taking a more broad view of the moving pieces should better inform the conversation. Often, a visual representation is needed. Hopefully the two graphics here provide added context for discussion.

Cortex and Pace

In aggregate, just more than 300 residential units are planned for the area currently. Another 1,410 residential units have been indentified as possible future development. Nearly 850,000 GSF of potential retail development has been identified and more than 3,000,000 GSF of office and research space is envisioned.
