Luxury Urban Living in Vibrant Suburban St. Louis Downtown

​Clayton, Mo., has quickly emerged as the St. Louis suburb for those seeking elements of an urban lifestyle, mixing work and play. Known for its vibrant downtown business district, high-end apartment living options are attracting a young workforce seeking an urban look and feel in an established smaller community.

Keeping with the neighborhood’s thriving commerce, Opus, along with AIG Global Real Estate, developed a mixed-used, luxury multifamily development with six stories, 120 units and 13,000 square feet of ground level retail space.

This foray into Clayton marked the second project in 2015 for Opus in St. Louis’ flourishing multifamily market. Previously, the company had started construction on a project in St. Louis’ Central West End neighborhood that built on extensive, award-winning multifamily development experience.

The building design complements the area’s classic aesthetic with modern elegance and sustainability. The surrounding sidewalks were widened to provide comfortable outdoor dining and a true pedestrian-friendly building. This also aligns with the city’s masterplan.

As it fulfills the high demand for luxury living options in Clayton, this project offers a variety of alcove, studio and one- and two-bedroom floor plans. All units include high-end modern finishes, including stainless steel appliances, quartz countertops with tile backsplash, expansive windows, private balconies and large closets. Other convenient amenities, include:

  • state-of-the-art fitness room with Fitness On Demand™,
  • secure bike storage,
  • two levels of underground parking,
  • club and game room,
  • commercial grade kitchen for entertaining,
  • conference room,
  • outdoor grill and fire pit
  • and two amenity decks for residents – the East amenity deck, overlooking restaurant row on Central Ave., and an interior courtyard, offering a serene space for residents to gather.

Easy access to libraries, public transit and the popular “Restaurant Row” are central to the neighborhood’s cultural and entertainment offerings. It is a hub for dining and pedestrian activity; this new development enhances the downtown Clayton community with an equally desirable living option.
