What's the 411?
As an astute poster on urbanstl.com pointed out, LoftWorks has begun marketing its newest project, the redevelopment of the Farm & Home Savings Association Building. Now known as The 411 (after its address, 411 N. Tenth Street), this project will feature 10,000 sf of ground floor retail space and a total of 50,000 sf of office space on floors 2-6. The office space will feature 12’-16’ ceilings, maple floors, and the building will be LEED Gold certified. According to LoftWorks’ marketing materials, the firm has targeted a fall 2008 availability.
For some reason, I would love to see the building leased by a single user. It would make a great headquarters for a smaller firm.
While it’s unfortunate that the building’s original façade could not be restored, the rendering really looks great. Along with the planned improvements to the Locust Building next door, the 1000 block of Locust should really look great in the days to come. And the addition of new retailers will help complement the new Left Bank Books across and the new shops and restaurants in the Syndicate Building across the street.
For leasing information, call LoftWorks at (314) 241-6700, ext. 13.
