Pestalozzi Townhouses

0 comments

 

I happened to stumble across this Google street view of five contemporary town houses in Benton Park on Indiana and Pestalozzi. Although this is not a major project, I was impressed by the urbanistic character of the designs which, not surprisingly, are by the Killeen Studio. They fit in beautifully with the neighborhood, by their street hugging form, townhouse verticality, and the red brick. Contemporary approaches can be found in the Gate district and in the Grove but I was surprised to see a project like this so far south. It is called Pestalozzi Point (http://killeenstudio.com/ground-broken-pestalozzi-point)

  • This project which was announced a few years ago has been completed. Like so many Catholic and public schools it closed about 15 years ago. The building, converted to apartments, is a handsome one, classic in design with perfect symmetry, very different from the Ittner-designed public schools. The entrance of the building is perfectly centered with the fenestration identical on both sides of the four story structure which is faced with a rusticated white stone. It stands just behind St. Pius V Church (visible at the right of the photograph), on Utah just of South Grand in the Tower Grove neighborhood. It's called "La Maison," perhaps a nod to the French heritage of St. Louis.
  • This project is now finished.
  • This highly anticipated project will see a former gas station be turned into the second Bailey’s Range Restaurant. A new addition will also be built for indoor seating. The addition will be on the back. It is expected to be a busy place upon opening in Late 2019/Early 2020. Developer: Dave Bailey Jobs added: 75
