June 7, 2013 | McCormack Baron Salazar

Arlington Grove is a new, 112-unit economically integrated community in the 22nd Ward of St. Louis City spearheaded by McCormack Baron Salazar, St. Louis Housing Authority, Urban Strategies and Friendly Temple Missionary Baptist Church.

The development plan includes:

  • The historic renovation of the abandoned, William B. Ittner-designed Arlington School into townhouses and garden apartments.

  • New, historically representative townhouses and garden apartments developed with sustainable practices and materials.

  • A mixed-use building with apartments above first-floor retail to help recreate the feeling of a dense commercial corridor and to spur further economic development.

Arlington Grove has been certified by the Enterprise Green Communities Criteria and Energy Star for Homes and was constructed to achieve exceptional environmental performance through efficient site design; low energy and water utilization; healthy indoor air quality; smart materials and construction techniques.  Notable features include solar panels, permeable pavement, exceptional building envelope construction, Energy Star appliances and HVAC Equipment, low-VOC materials, Water Sense faucets, showers and fixtures.  To ensure that the property meets its sustainability goals, McCormack Baron Salazar maintains long-term commitments to sustainable operations and maintenance, and a “Go Green” guide is given to each new resident to help them understand the green features in their homes, save money and resources, and live greener lives.
