Locust Street Lofts Project Moves Ahead, Fate of 923 Locust Still Unknown

By on March 20, 2017

From nextSTL:  Plans to transform two long-vacant buildings on Locust Street in downtown St. Louis are moving forward. Demolition bids are open to prep 917 and 921 Locust to be built out as market rate apartments. In April of last year, nextSTL was first to report TWG Development of Indianapolis had purchased the long-vacant row of historic buildings at 913-921 Locust Street in downtown St. Louis. The buildings were purchased from UrbanStreet, which had acquired them from the Roberts Brothers liquidation in 2012.

Demolition plans provide a first look at possible floor plans and unit layout for the project. The two larger buildings are planned to accommodate 88 apartments.

The corner building at 921 Locust is not included in the interior demolition plans, leaving its future still in doubt. The latest plan had TWG considering demolition and replacement with a two-story building. nextSTL has chronicled the building’s interesting history as an art gallery in this profile: When the Art World Came to St. Louis.
