in Companies/News

Renovation Creates First-of-its-Kind Venue that Caters to the Senses.

The EXO Lounge and Nail Bar is coming to Edwardsville, Ill.  Billed as a sexy, vibrant and inspiring place to relax, the first-of-its kind venue unites an elegant cocktail lounge with manicure, pedicure and other restorative services in space that is carefully designed for the senses.  The EXO Lounge and Nail Bar, the vision of founder of Gina Gamblin, is taking shape in a more than 8,000-square-foot renovation at the 157 Center complex.  Contegra Construction Co. is transforming the space and expects to complete the project for a November 7, 2019 debut.

“EXO Lounge is all about the senses and a place to escape from the stress of life with some unique pampering,” said Gamblin.  “It is also a place to meet and enjoy the company of the others in an environment built around service and fun.”

The first-of-its-kind cocktail lounge and nail bar will work in harmony. The nail bar will offer manicures, pedicures, eyelash extensions and waxing.  From the European seating, customers will be able to enjoy a cocktail or beverage, ordering from EXO Lounge iPads at every station.  It will also feature a specialized ventilation system at every station to vent fumes from nail polish.  The lounge will offer a relaxing social setting offering seasonal organic cocktails, mocktails, beer, wine and coffee.  Gamblin says seasonal aromas, fresh flowers, music and more will create a soothing experience throughout the lounge and nail bar.

Contegra’s renovation will feature elegant finishes, including recessed and vaulted ceilings accented with gold paneling and brightened with ornate chandeliers.  Vibrant tile floor patterns enliven the nail bar.  The lounge area features darker flooring, a black Cambria Quartz bar top, velvet seating and a 2,000-square-foot outdoor patio area with fire pits.

“The lounge offers endless possibilities for fun and relaxation for men and women and is open to the public for special events,” noted Gamblin. “It’s a place where woman can come for a girls night, guys can grab a drink after a long day golfing. The outdoor patio features cabanas from which to enjoy a drink and relax with friends.”  She adds that private liquor boxes will be available for rent.

The inviting entry features a white EIFS façade, a seamless black metal roof, champaign bronze metal panels and a glass curtainwall to flood the interior with natural light.  The 15-foot clearstory entrance is ornamented with a large chandelier.  For more information, visit www.visitexo.com.

Two New Buildings to Total 2.025 Million SF in Largest Industrial Lease Transaction in St. Louis History

Developer TriStar Properties and tenant World Wide Technology (WWT) have announced plans to team on the creation of a 176-acre campus valued at more than $115 million at Gateway Commerce Center, a nationally prominent 2,300-acre logistics and bulk distribution park located outside Edwardsville, Ill.

Founded in 1990, privately held WWT is an international technology solution provider with $10.4 billion in annual revenue and more than 4,600 employees. With headquarters in St. Louis, the minority business enterprise (MBE) operates more than 70 offices worldwide.

The lease calls for TriStar to develop two equally sized buildings totaling 2.025 million square feet, supported by parking for nearly 2,000 vehicles. It is believed that the WWT lease is the largest industrial property transaction executed in the history of metro St. Louis.

The deal, inked March 9, 2018, represents the culmination of a seven-month competition involving many of the top commercial developers in the St. Louis market said Bobby Klucker, director of development for TriStar. “What tipped the scales in our favor was our ability to provide a campus environment that is expandable by 1.4 million square feet and that has direct access to an interstate highway interchange. There was also a high level of confidence in the ability of TriStar and its construction partners and vendors to complete the one-million-plus square foot buildings on an extremely aggressive construction schedule.”

Work will begin later this month on WWT’s first building, a Technology Center devoted to the production and assembly of technology equipment. It is to be completed in April 2019. A Logistics Center, for product storage and distribution, is to be completed in August 2019.

Both buildings will be formed from tilt-up concrete panels and have 36-foot clear-height ceilings plus dock doors and truck courts.

Long-time partner, PCCP, LLC, a national real estate finance and investment management concern based in Los Angeles, Calif., is teaming with TriStar on the WWT project. The buildings will be the sixth and seventh joint-ventured by the duo.

Michael Towerman, co-founder and president of TriStar, noted that “with 18 bulk buildings containing nearly 13 million square feet under roof, we continue to be pro-active in producing distribution space that anticipates the need of major consumer goods companies for efficient, expandable bulk space configurations.”

Currently offered at the development is newly completed Gateway East 594, a 593,940-square-foot cross-docked facility with 36’ clear-height ceilings, 570 feet of depth, 66 dock doors and two drive-in doors. Standing on a 54-acre site, it is expandable to roughly 1 million square feet.

In addition to WWT, Gateway tenants include AmazonDial Corp., GENCO ATC, GEODIS, The Hershey CompanyOzburn-Hessey LogisticsProctor & GambleSave-A-LotSaddle Creek Logistics Services, DB Schenker, Schneider NationalUnileverUSF Logistics,Walgreens and Yazaki of North America.
