Washington University’s $80M Mixed-Use Student Housing Project Set to Open

WUSTL Loop Project 17 8/5/2014

Washington University’s Loop Living development, under construction for a year and a half, will see it’s first residents in a few weeks. The four-building complex has 165 furnished apartments, United Provisions grocery and eatery (nextSTL sneak preview here), and the 24hr Peacock Diner. A fifth building at the corner of Westgate and Enright is planned.

The apartments are mostly three-bedroom with some efficiency and two-bedroom units. A few of the units span two stories. There is one level of underground parking spanning the length of the buildings on Enright. The addition to the built environment has been dramatic and the 24-hour diner and grocery store have been long sought amenities for the neighborhood.
