Altus Plans Large Apartment Building in Creve Coeur
Updated: Nov 28, 2020
Altus Properties, the developer behind projects such as the Grand Flats on South Grand in the City, The James in Kirkwood, and a co-developer on the Arterra building in Kansas City's Crossroads neighborhood, has proposed a 227-unit apartment building with just over 4000sf of retail space in the suburb of Creve Coeur.
According to notice posted by the City of Creve Coeur, a public hearing will be held on December 7th to begin the review process for the project. The development's first stop, which has no name at this time, is the Planning and Zoning Commission where a rezoning request will be heard. The development site is within the "Creve Coeur Pavilion" shopping center, which is on Olive Boulevard just West of Lindbergh. The shopping center is home to a Freddy's Frozen Custard location, California Pizza Kitchen, and an AMC Movie Theater among other things. The general area recently received some new apartments with the Vue at Creve Coeur and Vanguard Heights developments.
The project will see the California Pizza Kitchen and the Stir Crazy buildings demolished. A parking garage will be surrounded by apartments in a style referred to as a "Texas Doughnut".
St. Louis-based Trivers is the architecture firm on the project. A contractor is not yet known on this project nor is the cost and estimated timeline. The facade materials are planned to be brick, metal, fiber cement, and glass.
