Mac Properties Completes 36-Story Luxury Apartment Tower in St. Louis
ST. LOUIS — Mac Properties, a multifamily residential developer with offices in Chicago, Kansas City and St. Louis, has delivered a luxury apartment tower in St. Louis called One Hundred Above the Park. Clayco was the general contractor for the 36-story project, which overlooks Forest Park within the city’s Central West End neighborhood.
“We are proud to have completed this world-class landmark for St. Louis in the midst of the pandemic,” says Matt McKenna, Clayco’s vice president of residential construction. “The project’s success is the result of months-long planning, scheduling and logistical collaboration between all stakeholders.”
Mac Properties worked closely with St. Louis Development Corp. and the City of St. Louis to bring One Hundred Above the Park to fruition, and Clayco kept construction on schedule by completing one floor per week.
Architect Jeanne Gang of Studio Gang designed One Hundred Above the Park with a “scalloped” glass façade. The angled exterior gives each of the 316 apartments a corner living room with double windows, which helps Mac Properties to improve energy efficiency by promoting natural lighting. Each floorplate is designed into a leaf-shaped pattern, which gives the tower a tiered look.
“We hope residents enjoy this distinctive high-rise for years to come,” says McKenna about the Green Globes-certified property.
Amenities at the high-rise community include a pool with a sundeck, covered dog run, indoor pet grooming station, fitness center, retail space, six floors of parking, onsite parcel room, bike storage, game room, conference room, outdoor fireplace and 24-hour staff and maintenance onsite.
Unit interiors include 9-foot ceilings, quartz countertops, porcelain tile backsplashes, stainless steel appliances, walk-in closets and balconies in some units, solar shades, smart locks and floor-to-ceiling windows offering unobstructed views of Forest Park, downtown St. Louis and Central at West End.
The property’s floor plans include studio, one-, two- and three-bedroom apartments. Rental rates range from $1,935 per month for a studio to $6,485 for a three-bedroom unit on the top floor, according to the property website. The average asking price for an apartment in the greater St. Louis market at the end of 2020 was $997 per month, according to research from NorthMarq.
Developers have delivered 1,600 apartment units annually in the greater St. Louis area since 2015, though last year the count was only a little above 1,000 units, according to NorthMarq.
