An unnamed developer, he said, would present designs for a major new building at a public meeting at the Schlafly branch of the St. Louis Public Library at 7 pm.
There is no need to wait. The St. Louis Post-Dispatch unveiled the designs Thursday night for a 36-story, glass apartment tower at West Pine and Kingshighway boulevards on what is now a surface parking lot.
Rumors about the project have circulated for nine months. The parcel at 100 N. Kingshighway is owned by Antheus Capital/Silliman Group, who also are the developers of a planned apartment building in the Cortex district. The architect is one they have used before, Chicago-based Studio Gang. The reported estimated cost of the project is $130 million.
