The October 27th agenda for the St. Louis Board of Adjustment gives some hints about potential development on the Pruitt-Igoe site by Clayco in the Carr Square neighborhood at Jefferson and Carr as reported by the Post-Dispatch in September.
- a five-story office building with café and event space
- an eight-story hotel/conference center
- a six-story building with reception areas, restrooms, and café space on floors one and 2, with office space on floors three through six
- a four-story building with restrooms, stairwells, an elevator core, and open offices
- a five-story parking garage that will accommodate up to 1,200 vehicles
Geospatial-focused firms and subcontractors working with and in support of the NGA are likely tenants.
Sorry no renderings. Let’s hope these aren’t as land-wasting as the hospital seen in the aerial posted above that turns its back to Jefferson. And that they aren’t drive-to island fortresses like those that plague Jefferson in the area.
