The $41 million Arlington Grove mixed-use development in St. Louis is viewed as a major step in revitalizing the community. Developed by McCormack Baron Salazar with KAI Design & Build (architect, MEP, GC), the project will add 112 new and renovated mixed-income rental units (market rate, low-income, and public housing) totaling 162,000 sf, plus 5,000 sf of commercial/retail space.
The historic Arlington Grove elementary school will be converted into 21 apartments, and 91 new garden apartments, townhouses, and semi-detached homes will be built per Enterprise Green Communities criteria. Sustainable features: Energy Star appliances, high-efficiency fixtures, reflective roof shingles, and pervious pavement. The project has 40% Minority Business Enterprise and 10% Women Business Enterprise participation.
