The 29-story luxury apartment tower is located adjacent to Busch Stadium. As the signature building of a multi-block development on former surface parking lots, the project is part of a vibrant new district in downtown St. Louis.
At the sidewalk level, the design addresses a range of conditions. The southern edge, adjacent to the ballpark, supports activity on Clark Avenue, which is pedestrian-only on game days. The northern edge, on the quieter Cardinal Way, hosts neighborhood retail and the residential entry. The generous residential amenities are located primarily at the eighth level, and include a clubroom, kitchen, fitness, game room, and indoor-outdoor bar, as well as terrace space that allows views into the stadium from a stepped belvedere and an infinity-edge pool. The tower has a contemporary angular form, designed to stand in contrast to the traditional red brick stadium, and sculpted to maximize views onto the field. There is an affiliation with the Cardinals brand, subtly incorporating team lore in the interior finishes and artwork to create a unique residential community that appeals to superfans and urbanites alike. Its success is evidenced by robust early leasing, with many of the prime units being reserved before construction.
