Kadean Construction Company celebrated the topping out of The Barclay, a condominium building under construction at 204 N. Clay Street in downtown Kirkwood for developer Savoy Investments, LLC. The final roof truss of the 40,000 square foot, four-story structure was hoisted into place by Cheltenham Construction Services, one of Kadean’s subcontractors, signifying that the structure has reached its maximum height.
The Barclay will feature 14 luxury condominiums with underground parking and other amenities. Construction began in November 2019 and is scheduled for completion early in 2021. Core 10 Architecture is the project architect and KPFF Consulting Engineers is providing engineering services.
“We are so gratified that this project has remained on schedule during the COVID-19 public health pandemic, which has adversely affected the progress of many other construction projects across the St. Louis region,” said John Pennington, partner and co-owner at Savoy Investments. “Most of these condominiums were pre-sold prior to the start of construction, and the owners are eager to move in. We look forward to people taking up residence here before the end of the year as originally planned.”
“Topping out is an important milestone for this project, and we are excited to celebrate it with everyone today,” said Mike Eveler, President of Kadean Construction. “The entire project team has done a great job of keeping this job site safe for workers while responding to the site’s logistical limitations. I credit the collaboration of everyone involved for keeping this moving towards a successful outcome.”
“Today is a great time to celebrate a new streetscape in vibrant downtown Kirkwood,” said Tyler Stephens, Design Principal at CORE10 Architecture. “It’s exciting when a team like this has a vision for multiple buildings on a street that establishes a sense of home for future residents.”
This is the second new condominium construction project for which Savoy Investments has chosen Kadean to build on the same block in downtown Kirkwood. In 2018, Kadean completed construction of The Madison condominiums at 110 W. Madison Avenue, a project similar in size and appearance to The Barclay.
