57-Unit Intrada Lofts Planned for Downtown West

One of the few remaining industrial buildings near the western end of Washington Avenue in the city’s Downtown West neighborhood may soon become The Intrada Lofts. The Vecino Group of Springfield, Missouri plans 57 studio, 1, 2, and 3-bedroom units for the building at 2035 Lucas Avenue. Vecino has been seeking state and federal development assistance, including Low Income Housing Tax Credits.

The 50,000 sf building sits behind the Adler Lofts north of Washington Avenue and is across 21st Street from The Edge Lofts. The property, since 1930 the home of shoelace manufacturer St. Louis Braid Co., is connected to the Adler building by a sky bridge. Built in 1899 for the Desnoyer Shoe Company according to a design by Isaac Taylor, the building is listed on the National Register of Historic Places and is eligible for historic tax credits.
