This should be in the St. Louis County thread.

Was sorry to see that they anticipate only 12 residents for the project. I'd like to see more dense, walkable projects in Downtown K'wood.
They started work on this last week. The Madison.

Construction is moving head pretty well. Was not aware of this project.

Construction is progressing on this new condo building in Kirkwood. I hear that all the units were already sold privately by the builder up front and will not be on the open market as new, unless they are re-sold by a current buyers.

I know 12 residents doesn't seem like much but the condos are 500-800k! Also developer pre-sold the entire building! So demand seems to be there for much more of this!

Even though it's not many people, the building has very nice mass and comes right up to the street. That along with being built on top of a parking lot and requiring demolition or some other ridiculous parking situation is a massive win and sets a nice precedent.

What was it 2 years ago that Kirkwood was tearing down historic buildings for surface lots? Also this development forced their council to legalize true mixed development projects. All very positive outcomes.
I say kudos to Kirkwood on this project! In my book, they've one-upped their bitter rival Webster who recently let the NIMBYs take down the loft proposal on Lockwood.

That area around City Hall is filling in nicely.
Whoa, that's a sexy building. Bump it up a floor, put a nice retail platform under it, and give me several of those throughout Downtown West and Midtown.
Had a chance to tour this building recently and as others have stated, it is indeed a sexy building. It's the only condo building in Kirkwood with sprinklered patios which allows owners to put grills on their outdoor space. The outdoor space for the penthouse units is close to 1,000 sq ft. Wired for sound and tvs too. Views are amazing.
