There are over 10,000 rental and sale units currently available in downtown St. Louis. That number will grow by year end 2012. The variety of housing options is growing too. Loft conversions continue to be extremely popular and there are many new and re-sale options from which to choose. But the next wave of residential development will include conversion of historic office buildings into traditional-style condos and apartments as well as new construction condos and apartments. These new construction residential properties will include loft-type space on Washington Ave., and high rise condos that will alter the downtown skyline.
As residential development grows, distinct neighborhoods are emerging throughout the downtown area. The Loft District, Downtown West, Cupples Station/Ballpark District, the Post Office District, Columbus Square, the Central Business District each offer their own unique character and charm.
