One Hundred's Full Website Launches and Brings Surprises

The amenity deck @ One Hundred.

As construction continues on the tallest residential tower in the City of St. Louis, Mac Properties has launched the almost full One Hundred website. used to be a landing page with one single rendering and a form to sign up to learn more. Now, that website has graduated to one that is meant to attract potential residents and answer some of the public's questions that they may have regarding the building. In addition to all of this, the new website includes new renderings, both interior and exterior (but mostly interior).

When construction started in February 2018, information as limited to non existent. we knew that the building would cost $120 Million. We knew it would be 36 Floors and 385FT. We knew it would have 316 units, and we knew the architect was Studio Gang. But what we didn't know was how the units would look, the amenities that would come with the building and a host of other features that would truly set this building apart from others. The final thing that we knew was that this wouldn't be a cheap development and the latest renders and information confirm that.

First off, the green glass we have seen going up isn't a mistake but it does appear to be a move away from the typical silver glass that we have been seeing since the project's initial unveiling in December 2016. The green glass appears classy in the amenity deck rendering and blends well with the articulated metal panels that are part of the scalloped facade. While no rendering shows the exterior during the day time light, the evening/dusk lighting will give a very dramatic look to the building, one that no other building in St. Louis has. Even the units will have their own special flair (as was intended by design).

As was said when the building was revealed, the unique geometry of One Hundred allows for every unit to have a corner living room. In larger units, there will be more than one corner providing for a more unique living experience. The scalloped design also allows for natural ventilation to take place at all times of the day so traditional cooling, and maybe even heating methods, can be reduced as a result of the design. The angled facade itself, which provides the flowering shape, allows for windows to reach out towards the city and gives the space a larger feel despite ceiling heights being 9FT in height.

Elsewhere in the units, potential residents can look forward to only the highest finishes according to the website. Residents will find features like...

  • Open Floor Plans

  • Private Balconies (per plan)

  • European Style Cabinets with Soft-close Doors and Drawers

  • Quartz Countertops

  • Stainless Steel Appliances

  • Full-Size Washer/Dryer in Unit

  • Large Closets

  • Wide Plank Flooring

  • Resident-Controlled AC and Heat

  • Smart Wi-Fi Thermostats

  • High-Performance Floor-to-Ceiling Windows that are Operable

  • Custom Solar Shades

  • And many more

Those types of amenities, coupled with a stunning view of Forest Park and the City provide for a pretty unique experience in general.

The whole building itself will feature community amenities to make life that much richer. While these amenities are somewhat unique to the building, and others are not, they are expected especially since the rents here will surely be the highest in the City, if not the State. Community features include...

  • Green Globes Certified for Sustainable and Energy Efficient Design*

  • 24-Hour Attended Lobby and Maitenance

  • On-site Property Manager

  • Package Receiving

  • Dry Cleaning & Laundry Services

  • Electric Car Charging Stations

  • Indoor Dog Grooming Station

  • Covered Dog Run

  • Trash Chutes & Recycling on Every Floor

  • Personal Storage Units

  • On-site Retail

  • And many more

And on the 7th Floor, the amenity deck which is rendered at the top of the story, features there include...

  • Outdoor Pool and Sundeck

  • Poolside Pergola

  • Outdoor Fireplace

  • Outdoor Grills and Dining Areas

  • Wrap-Around Viewing Terrace

  • Outdoor and Indoor Lounges

  • Conference Room

  • Work/Study Spaces

  • Game Room

  • Party Room

  • Private Meeting and Dining Room

  • State-of-the-art Fitness Center

  • Private Fitness Room

  • Free Wi-Fi in Amenity Spaces

  • Resident-Controlled Audio in Amenity Spaces

  • And many more

In general, One Hundred is loaded with amenities that make the rent, for those who can afford it, seem worth it. The views are also unbeatable from this vantage point.

For now, no buildings truly block views. About as bad as it gets is the Parc Frontenac next door but since a majority of the units are on the East and West sides, Parc Frontenac doesn't effect them very much.

In the amenity section, I highlighted the Green Globes certification. For those who don't know, it's an energy efficiency rating like LEED Gold and Silver, only it is more prestigious. Upon completion, One Hundred will be the only building in St. Louis to have that certification. The award also solidifies One Hundred's place where City meets nature.

One Hundred joins a growing number of projects under construction, and planned, that push the architectural envelope in St. Louis. The only other project that pushes the envelope in a similar fashion is 4101 Manchester and there will certainly be more to come.
