Green Street Plans 20-Story Tower in Downtown Clayton
Today, Green Street held a community information session to propose their latest project - a 20-story mixed-use tower in Downtown Clayton at the corner of Bemiston and Carondelet. The site is currently home to Sterling Bank, which would be torn down as a result of this proposal. The neighboring office buildings at 7751 and 7745 Carondelet would also be demolished as a result of this project.
The preliminary proposal includes 270 apartments, the offices of and a new bank branch for Sterling Bank, and an integrated parking garage of 380 spaces. The parking garage will be accessed on Carondelet and, based on preliminary plans, the curb cut for garage access lines up with the parking entrance of 7745 Carondelet. If approved by the City of Clayton, the project could begin construction towards the end of 2022 and wrap up 18 months later. This is just one of a number of large developments proposed or underway in Clayton. Others include Bemiston Place, Forsyth Pointe, the Residence Inn Hotel, the AC Hotel, and a condo building at 8230 Forsyth.
Green Street, which has been very active in the City with projects dotted throughout the Forest Park Southeast and Midtown neighborhoods, is in the process of moving its headquarters from Downtown Clayton to the City. Their current HQ is located at Maryland and Gay while their new HQ will be on McRee between Kingshighway and Vandeventer (at the Bar K Dog Bar building). The new HQ will also include the new home office of HDA Architects (moving from Chesterfield). Green Street has also ventured into other markets beyond St. Louis with a project in Sheboygan Wisconsin, named "The Oscar", recently opening to residents.
HDA architects is the architect on the project. Green Street Building Group, along with Tarlton, is set to be the builder. The development cost is estimated at $100 million.
