Commerce Bank Tower Clayton Completed


Commerce Bank is celebrating the completion of Commerce Bank Tower, a 250,000-plus-square-foot, Class A+ office building at the corner of Forsyth Boulevard and North Meramec Avenue in Clayton.

The bank and project partners hosted a ribbon-cutting ceremony on April 4. In attendance were Commerce Bancshares President and CEO John Kemper, St. Louis County Executive Sam Page, Missouri Lt. Gov. Mike Kehoe and Clayton Mayor Michelle Harris.

McCarthy is the builder, with Christner Architects as the designer. Equipped with a green roof and electric vehicle charging stations in parking garage of more than 1,200 spaces, the structure is built to meet LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) Silver certification according to the U.S. Green Building Council.

The tower is 15 stories of glass with 10 floors of office and 7,200 square feet of first floor retail space. Amenities include a one-acre garden terrace on the sixth floor, ground floor retail space and tenant access to a 7,500-square-foot fitness facility.

“The opening of the Commerce Bank Tower is an exciting opportunity to support the growth of the region and our investment in the future of the St. Louis community,” said Commerce Bank St. Louis Chairman and CEO Bob Holmes. “With more than 50 years’ experience serving businesses, individuals and families across the region, we committed to building more than just a modern workspace for our team. Commerce Bank Tower is a space for like-minded companies to bring innovative ideas to life for the benefit of the region.”

Musick, L Keeley Building New Facility for Commerce Bank at Lindbergh and Clayton



Come November, Commerce Bank customers will have a new full-service banking and wealth management location in Ladue that allows for a balance of the digital solutions customers expect with the human connection they deserve.

Regional Construction Design Manager Josh Hellmann said the approximately 3,100-square-foot full-service banking center sits on the site formerly occupied by Schneithorst’s Restaurant, which closed in December 2019. Commerce Bank’s new location at the southeast corner of Lindbergh Boulevard and Clayton Road will feature full-service banking and Commerce Trust Company’s wealth management arm known as The Private Bank.

Musick Construction began renovation of the existing shell space in February. L Keeley Construction is completing interior finishes now. The location will officially open to customers on Nov. 8.

“This location will give us tremendous visibility and great access,” Hellmann said.

The building is equipped with two points of entry – one for banking and another for wealth management clients – in addition to a walk-up night drop along the north entry, an ATM vestibule, café-style seating, private banking spaces and a conference room. Entries to the new building are touchless.

Wood and stone complement a neutral palette of the banking center’s interior to add warmth and texture.

“This is our first project for Commerce Bank,” said Clayton Rehkemper, project manager for L Keeley Construction. “We’re delighted to work for them.”

L Keeley’s work included installing demountable glass partitions as flexible, movable glass office fronts.

V Three Studios is the architect, with Color Art providing furniture and other interiors.
