300 S Broadway, Downtown, 7th Ward (Owner/Architect: St. Louis Community College/HDAI Architects/Jack Holleran) – Demolition of occupied 6-Story Building of Merit (built 1890’s) and Construction of 33-Story Luxury Apartment/Retail Building.

Per Preservation Board Agenda: “At the December 18, 2017 Preservation Board meeting, an identical preliminary review proposal was considered. The Board approved demolition of the existing building with the following conditions: (1) that the original Clark and Broadway facades from the 1890s building be retained and incorporated in the design of the tower; (2) that the apartment tower must have at least 75% glass curtain walls on all four facades of the new construction; (3) final design and materials be approved by the Preservation Board; and (4) the demolition approval is withheld until a building permit is approved.”

12/19/2017 St. Louis Post-Dispatch: Downtown apartment tower should keep historic facade, Preservation Board says

However, the developer says retention and reuse of the facades is too expensive. That’s interesting since the developer’s 7-level parking “podium,” known to you and I as a parking garage, will have the most expensive cladding for a parking garage ever.

Action by the Board of Aldermen intended to force the Preservation Board to approve demolition- 20 year tax abatement by 7th Ward Alderman Jack Coatar– was adopted by a 17-8 vote after intense debate.

8 No Votes. That’s a big deal. Development bills are considered aldermanic privilege bills. You do not rock the boat or your bills will get held up.

2/18/2018 St. Louis Post-Dispatch: St. Louis aldermen approve 20-year tax abatement for 33-story apartment tower downtown

2/24/2018 St. Louis Post-Dispatch: Downtown apartment tower heads back to Preservation Board

Cultural Resources Staff now recommends approval of demolition without the facade use requirement.

This project will be a short distance from Ballpark Village Phase 2– a 29-Story Luxury Apartment/Office Building.
