Hotel Indigo Underway in Downtown St. Louis

in Companies/News
Hotel Indigo

Trivers Associates’ hospitality work dates back more than 20 years. Our St. Louis-area hotels alone total nearly 1500 rooms, 2,000,000 square feet and over $180M in construction cost. These projects include the Westin Hotel at Cupples Station, Embassy Suites at the Laurel and the conversion of the Adam’s Mark Hotel into the Hyatt Regency St. Louis at the Arch.

Our latest hotel project is in partnership with ViaNova Development and will finally revitalize the long vacant historic LaSalle Building in the heart of downtown St. Louis. The project is currently planned to open as a Hotel Indigo. Originally designed in 1909 by Isaac Taylor, the LaSalle Building rises 13-stories and features bay windows beginning at the third story with terra cotta and cast iron details at the first and second stories. Trivers is leading the design team through a full rehabilitation of this unique building as well as a renovation of the adjacent office building for use as an 88-key hotel. Exterior improvements on the LaSalle building include full window replacement for all upper stories, masonry and terra cotta repair, roof replacement, and a new rooftop bar with exterior patio. The adjacent office building will receive a completely new façade meant to deliver a modern interpretation of the historic bay windows on the LaSalle building. Trivers also served as historic consultant on the project working closely with the Missouri State Historic Preservation Office and the National Park Service to meet the Secretary of the Interior’s Standards for Rehabilitation.

The Hotel Indigo flag is particularly well suited for this site as the required development of a neighborhood story utilizes a building’s placement within a city as inspiration for the design. With no shortage of historic material, the design team worked with the Owner and Hotel Indigo brand representatives to create a narrative focused on the history of transportation in St. Louis which then acted a lens through which the interior design was developed. The program includes a full restaurant and bar on the first level, meeting rooms and suites on the second and third levels, a fitness center and specialty roof top bar. Selective demolition is underway with full construction anticipated to begin this spring.

Team members include Nehring Design, KPFF Consulting Engineers, G+W Engineering, Civil Design, Inc. and KH Lemp.

Beyond Self Storage Facilities Under Construction in Metro St. Louis Area

in Companies/News

Construction is underway on two of the largest self-storage facilities in the St. Louis area, both of which are scheduled to open early summer 2017. Beyond Self Storage at McCausland in St. Louis and Beyond Self Storage at Chesterfield will be comprised of more than 100,000 SF each, with drive-thru loading areas, and they are being developed and operated by NorthPoint Development, who launched the Beyond Self Storage brand and a multi-facility development initiative in February 2016.

“We’re familiar with Metro St. Louis and we think there’s a real need for state-of-the-art self-storage” said Ben Hagedorn, Director of Self-Storage Operations for NorthPoint Development. “We’re very excited to be opening two Beyond Self Storage locations in the area and we hope to have a third project soon.”

Beyond Self Storage at McCausland will serve residents and businesses in Maplewood, Western St. Louis City, Brentwood, and Richmond Heights, as well as students from Washington University (Wash U), while the Chesterfield location is right down the road from Taubman Prestige Outlets and is very convenient for local residents and businesses, with over 100,000 cars passing on I-64 every day.

“The McCausland Ave. site was a former quarry and long-time vacant property at the busy Manchester Rd. intersection – we were literally digging up trash during site preparation, and we are pleased to see it transformed into a $10 million facility,” said Hagedorn. “Chesterfield is a wonderful community and we’re happy to offer a Class A facility in the market.”

Beyond Self Storage facilities feature a number of amenities that will distinguish them from other self-storage facilities in the area, including a drive-thru loading area with complimentary carts & dollies, 100% climate control (including drive-thru), state-of-the-art security, including computerized access control, digital video recorded cameras and motion-detected lighting, a business center with conference table, workstations, printer/copier and free Wi-Fi, online rentals and a self-service kiosk, a complete line of moving & packing supplies, and professional on-site management.

HDA Architects Completes Dramatic New Event Space in Grand Center

in Companies/News

HDA Architects recently completed Anew (A Rooftop Event Space for Big Brothers Big Sisters of Eastern Missouri). The $3.7 million project is in the heart of St. Louis’ Grand Center and has a rooftop restaurant that is 4,250 square feet and features a glass-enclosed dining room, a 10-seat bar and an outdoor terrace.

“Conceived as a gathering space to promote and cultivate relationships, the ANEW Rooftop is a modern addition perched atop the historical Woolworth building, now owned and operated by Big Brothers Big Sisters of Eastern Missouri. The stout, Art Deco styled masonry of the existing building provides a wonderful contrast to the minimalist and light aesthetic of the rooftop. This old/new juxtaposition creates an exciting dynamic, exemplary of the Grand Center district.”​

The Big Brother Big Sisters Rooftop project consists of a 3,000 SF retail space, a 4,250 SF rooftop space with a 2,250 SF terrace. Sitting atop the existing Big Brothers Big Sisters offices (previously the Woolworths Building) at Grand and Olive, the new addition is a sleek, modern compliment to the existing architecture. Folded planes of wood, glass and metal create a dynamic form that is purposefully perched to create a moment of drama by overhanging the existing building. Floor to ceiling glazing helps visually extend the interior space outward to the roof terrace and views beyond. The retail space on the ground floor provides the connection from the ground to the rooftop and can be programmed as an event space, café / restaurant, or exhibition space.

There were many challenges with this project. Besides the difficulties of building on the roof of an existing building, the greatest challenge was working over the existing structure of the building. During the Woolworth Building’s previous 2007 renovation, many of the building columns were removed to accommodate the theater needs of the Kranzberg Arts Center. Thus, the position and layout of the building is driven by the locations of the remaining columns capable of carrying the new roof loads to the ground.
