McCarthy Breaks Ground on 1 MSF Forsyth Pointe Mixed-Use Development Near St. Louis
CLAYTON, MO. — McCarthy Building Cos. Inc. has broken ground on Forsyth Pointe, an office and retail development in the central business district of Clayton, just west of St. Louis.
Developed by US Capital Development, the project will include two Class A office towers with more than 20,000 square feet of street-level retail space. The office portion will rest atop a seven-story parking structure, bringing the project’s total square footage to nearly 1 million square feet.
A 10-story, 265,000-square-foot east tower will occupy the corner of Forsyth Boulevard and Meramec Avenue. An eight-story, 210,000-square-foot west tower will reside at Brentwood and Forsyth boulevards. In addition to a 45,000-square-foot garden terrace, amenities will include a 10,000-square-foot fitness center and an arts and entertainment venue.
Completion is slated for summer 2022. Project costs were not disclosed.
“Forsyth Pointe will add prime office space and innovative retail space, increasing street vitality and the pedestrian experience on a prominent corner across from Shaw Park, one of our city’s crown jewels,” says Clayton Mayor Michelle Harris.
Established in 1935, the 47.5-acre Shaw Park is the city’s oldest and largest park.
The Forsyth Pointe project team includes Christner Architects, Cedergreen LLC, Alper Audi, Stock & Associates, G&W Engineering and Randy Burkett Lighting Design. All of the companies are headquartered in St. Louis.
From the project’s early design phase, McCarthy initiated a virtual design and construction process, including cloud-based building information modeling platforms.
