PARIC crews have begun working on the $130 million redevelopment of the historic Butler Brothers building in downtown St. Louis. Constructed in 1906 and listed on the National Register of Historic Places, plans include preservation of the building’s original design elements. The 700,000-square-foot building spans a full city block and previously served as a warehouse in the once-thriving Garment District. The original rail lines connecting the west building to union station still exist under the 18th Street pavement and the east docks once supported horse and buggy deliveries. A true Amazon of its time.
When complete, this mixed-use complex will house 384 apartments, internal parking spaces, co-working offices, restaurant and bar space at street level as well as residential amenities such as an expanded interior courtyard and a rooftop pool.
