The recent real estate development most people associate with the far-southern reaches of St. Louis City seems to be the the new River City Casino. While there is no doubt that the casino has brought a lot of attention to that area of South St. Louis City & County, there is actually another large-scale project that is even more noteworthy: The Temtor.Never heard of it? While you are not alone, clearly someone has taken notice as nearly all the 77 apartments and commercial spaces are now leased in this mixed-use development.
On the residential end, the apartments start at $595 and range from one to three-bedroom. All of them are loft-style and have top-notch finishes. As you can tell from the picture gallery below, the finishes have a distinctive flair not often seen in this part of town. On the commercial end, there is roughly 27,000 square foot of space. Current tenants include Perennial Artisan Ales, Goebel & Co Furniture, Davis Street Market Deli, and SouthSide Fight Club (a mixed-martial arts gym) among others.
Formerly a syrup-plant for Coca-Cola, the $27 million project was developed by Steins Broadway and Rothschild Development. While the commercial aspect of the Temtor will need to mature a bit more with time, the project has really been a great anchor development in an area of the City of overlooked. The buildingt is officially located in the Patch neighborhood, but is very close to Carondelet. Both neighborhoods have been given a boost by this project. Hopefully it will continue to be a success for the the area and developers alike.
For a closer look at the inside and outside of the project, take a look at the picture gallery below.
