Contemporary Skyscraper Proposed for Central West End – Taller Than the Chase: 100 N. Kingshighway

nextSTL reported some time ago that a skyscraper was being proposed for this location, but today we were given a magnificent potential design rendering. The location is ideal, just blocks from the Chase and designed by an architect from Studio Gang. St. Louis has not seen a contemporary design like this, ever, and nothing even close for the past few decades. I wish that we could infill downtown more to fill out the skyline, but any developments like this in the central corridor are okay with me!

The rendering depicts a 36-story, 385-foot residential tower. The building is located at 100 N. Kingshighway and is called “One Hundred”. The tower is expected to cost $130M and will feature 305 apartments (120 1BD, 120 2BD, 30 3BD, and 30 studio units) and a small retail space on the ground level. Hopefully a little market or something else that would benefit the community and residents!
