From EQ:  Downtown St. Louis continues to grow and thrive as an inviting environment for both businesses and residents. From innovative tech and startup hubs to restaurant and entertainment districts, the area is making strides towards its vision of delivering an authentic, first-class Downtown area for employees, residents and visitors. Read on for some of the newest developments you’ll want to keep an eye on.

1.)  2329/2351 Market St. –  A Tech-Enabled Office Space

Breathing new life into an underutilized corporate space, the real estate innovator, Green Street, has transformed the building at the corner of Jefferson Ave. and Market St., formerly used by Wells Fargo, into an ideal (and centrally located) spot for businesses. Adding 55,000 sq. ft. of tech-enabled office space, companies can easily move in and get right to work. With features like gigabit fiber bandwidth, Wi-Fi, SSAE 16 data center rack space, file storage and backup servers, hosted email and cloud desktops, these office spaces anticipate the technical requirements needed to run a modern and digitally driven business.

2.)  Jefferson Arms Redevelopment at 415 North Tucker

Originally built as the Hotel Jefferson for the 1904 World’s Fair, the 14-story Jefferson Arms building holds a spot on the National Register of Historic Places. Since its use as senior retirement housing when it closed almost a decade ago, the building had fallen into disrepair. But developer Alterra International sees the potential in Jefferson Arms’ solid bones and convenient Downtown location. Alterra plans to reinvent the historic building’s 500,000 square feet into a mixed-use space that includes nearly 20,000 sq. ft. of ground floor retail, a 198-room Mariott hotel with banquet facilities and 239 residential apartments. Also included in the plans for the project are several restaurants and a furniture shop, all of which could be completed by January 2020.
