A Fresh Perspective on Urban Living. Looks like we’re starting to see teasers for the newest, hottest address in downtown St. Louis: 1400 Washington. With pre-sales beginning in May 2007, Sky House will be a 22-story building with 166 units of residential and 13,000 sf of street-level retail. The residential units will be about 850 to 2,230 sf (1-3 bedrooms), with prices starting in the mid-$200,000. Sky House will be built to LEED standards and have Energy Star stainless steel appliances, a green roof, energy-efficient window systems and balcony doors, and computer-controlled, energy-efficient heating and cooling systems.
Residents will also have access to the Sky Club on the 19th floor. The Sky Club level includes a pool, hot tub, fitness center, green space, and a dog run. The importance of the dog run can’t be understated either. With a dog run, there’s less of a reason for vertical living to be at odds with dog lovers. The project is developed by Chicago-based Metropolitan Development Enterprises and constructed by RileyWaldrop. Looking good.
