In St. Louis’ Soulard neighborhood, conversion of an 1800s building into 131 loft apartments.

Built in 1875, this prominent downtown St. Louis building had a storied existence: mental institution, shoe factory, baby carriage factory, and (why not?) haunted house and horror novelties warehouse. Located next door to St. Louis’ historic Soulard Farmers Market, the Soulard Market Lofts redevelopment project involved the building’s conversion from boarded warehouse into 131 loft apartments. Financed using historic preservation tax credits, Brownfield remediation tax credits and HUD and TIF financing, this gut renovation included new roofing, MEP systems, elevators, historic windows and interior framing and finishes, as well as the build out of first floor commercial space. The development also included a sitework package, consisting of all new utilities, new parking lot, fencing, and in-ground swimming pool.
