In February, we got our first look at plans for the historic Armory building. Developer Green Street tapped Arcturis to transform the former armory-tennis center-concert hall into 160,000 sf of “creative office space” with rooftop greenspace, a micro-brewery, coffee roaster (more on both in the near future) and additional future development. As the $83M project nears a formal kick-off, more interior design work has been completed.
The Armory District sits opposite I-64 from Lawrence Group’s $340M City Foundry project. Both sit within the boundary of the recently created massive 395-acre Saint Louis University redevelopment area. The largest project there is the $550M SSM/SLU hospital. Across Forest Park Avenue from City Foundry, a Westin Hotel has been announced for the former Habitat for Humanity property.
