New renderings provide a glimpse of what’s under construction at 9th and Victor one block north of Anheuser-Busch. Soulard Steelyard will house 126 apartments surrounding a pool and amenity deck. The site at 2424 S. 9th Street sits adjacent to the IceHouse, which redeveloped the historic 1924 Polar Wave Ice & Fuel building.

Once completed, the five-story project will encompass 102 one-bedroom and 24 two-bedroom units that will vary in size from 542 to 1,064 square feet. All units will have kitchens with quartz waterfall island tops. LED televisions will be built into bathroom mirrors. Nest thermostats, smart locks and Alexa are standard in all units. Soulard Steelyard includes structured parking for 108 vehicles in addition to 12 surface spaces.
Whistler One LLC’s Kyle Hennessey highlights the development’s lifestyle. “If you are looking to live in the city, this is your chance to live like urban royalty.” Visitors to the pool deck will experience both a hot tub and cold tub, a 225 inch Jumbotron, an outdoor kitchen with television wall, bocce ball, bag toss, washers, courts for table tennis (and beer pong) and fire pits along with smaller, more intimate seating areas.
Inside, residents will have access to a lounge with a self-pour beer and wine tap system, a fireplace and flat-screen televisions. An “ultra glam Korean-style Karaoke room” will have a wet bar. In the mailroom, one will find a tenant curated self-checkout marketplace and automated package locker system. A state of the art fitness center will have a yoga room, Peloton bikes and video fitness.
Residents can screen films in a theater room with stadium style custom leather recliners, or they can take their animal companions to the building’s private pet spa & dog park. The same developer introduced many of these amenities to the St. Louis region earlier this year with the opening of Tribeca in the DeBaliviere Place neighborhood immediately north of Forest Park.
Hennessey expects the property to open in October. VE Design Group is the architect. Big Sur Construction is serving as general contractor.
