AHM Downtown West proposal moving along

The first buildings of AHM’s Downtown West proposal are proceeding through the approval process. It’s been a year and a half since AHM presented their plan for new builds and rehabs on the block surrounded by 21st, Locust, 22nd, and Washington and a mass-timber tower on the block to the east.

NextSTL – AHM Presents Vision for Downtown West

The two buildings are 2100 Washington and 2125 Locust. The 415-space parking garage behind 2100 Washington would serve the two new buildings as well as the rehabs on Locust. All together there are 231 apartments and 46,400 sf of commercial space. That’s one space per living unit and 4 per 1,000 sf of commercial.

Northeast corner of 2100 Washington. It would have 113 apartments and 8,000 sf of ground floor commercial space.

An amentias area including a pool face south.

Northwest corner of 2100 Washington.

The building doesn’t wrap all of the parking garage unfortunately with its western fa├žade facing 22nd and access from 22nd.

Southwest corner of 2125 Locust. It would have 74 apartments and 3,400 sf of ground floor commercial space.

Southeast corner of 2125 Locust.

The Board of Aldermen unanimously approved and Mayor Jones signed Board Bill 108, a 95% property tax abatement for 10 years, in December of 2022.

The Preservation Board will consider the demolition of 2120 Washington built in 1949 to make way for the new buildings at its January 29th meeting. Cultural Resource Office staff recommends-

That the Preservation Board grant Preliminary Approval for the demolition of a 1-story commercial building and the construction of a 6-story mixed-use building, with the condition that the demolition permit not be approved until after the issuance of a building permit, and that final design details, exterior materials and colors be reviewed and approved by Cultural Resources Office.
