Citizen Park: New Name, New Images of Opus Project in CWE

citizen-park_opus_6Citizen Park, AKA the Opus Development Group project at Euclid and Lindell in the city’s Central West End, has a new name and some new images to share. You can head over to their website, or check out what’s new in the images and videos below, and the various renderings offered along the way.

We first reported on the project back in July 2013. Since then, work has progressed more or less as planned. A taller project at the site was scrapped in 2007, and this effort was met with some pushback from area residents. Concerns regarding parking ultimately led to an additional parking level. By January 2014, the design had been refined at least three times to satisfy aesthetic concerns voiced by nearby residents.


As the project nears completion (progress photos by nextSTL contributor Richard Bose), marketing begins to ramp up. There has been no word on retail tenants for the first floor, other than that a restaurant and high-end retail is being sought.

The larger, though shorter, Orion project with a ground floor Whole Foods was recently completed a block south, and the smaller 34 N. Euclid is ready to rise out of the ground next door. Rumors of more residential or mixed-use projects along Kingshighway at West Pine and Lindell remain just that for now.
