PARK EAST

This building was the first high-rise residential tower built in St. Louis in over 25 years

This building is located in the heart of the Central West End, adjacent to Forest Park, Washington and St. Louis Universities, as well as the BJC & Washington University Medical Center.

A growing demand for quality condominiums successfully resulted in this 90-unit, 24-story tower. The base of the tower accommodates the building services, street-oriented retail and secure parking for the homeowners.

An expressed ground level for the lobby and shop fronts transitions to precast limestone and concrete panels that wrap the podium element and respond to the historic context of adjacent buildings, which was great concern to homeowners and city planners in this important historic district. The podium then transitions to an all-glass clad tower sheathed in a light green tinted glass that responds to the plan configuration and the building step backs at various building levels.
