Arlington Grove Development Breaks Ground
October 18, 2010 | McCormack Baron Salazar
McCormack Baron Salazar has broken ground for the development of Arlington Grove, a residential redevelopment project located on the corner of Dr. Martin Luther King Drive and Burd Avenue in St. Louis.
The completed project will offer 162,000 square feet of residential space and 5,000 square feet of commercial and retail space. The renovated school will house 21 apartments with the surrounding area featuring 91 townhomes and garden-style apartments. The residential units are designed to meet mandatory Enterprise Green Communities criteria, which is committed to the Missouri Housing Development Commission and required by the Capital Fund Recovery Competition grant, a stimulus-related grant awarded by the Department of Housing and Urban Development.
The project will offer market-rate units, Low Income Housing Tax Credit units at 60 percent of the area median income, HOME units and public-housing units. St. Louis-based KAI Design & Build is serving as architect, M/E/P engineer, general contractor and building information model coordinator for the project, which is scheduled for completion in spring 2012.
