Woodward Lofts LLC closed last month on the Suburban Packaging building on Tower Grove Avenue just North of Vandeventer. The sale moves forward a plan to convert the massive warehouse into 160 market-rate apartments with 200 enclosed parking spaces and ground-floor retail. The project is expected to be completed in 2018.
New renderings from Trivers show a rooftop terrace with pool, with housing units and common spaces grouped around exterior courtyards. Parking spaces will be inside the structure.
Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, the building is the former home of the Woodward & Tiernan Printing Company, which was the 5th largest printing company in the country in the 1920s.
An initial $16 million permit was applied for in April for the $30 million project.
