Where to Live: 4101 Laclede in the Central West End, blocks from Cortex

The Central West End–long a residential destination for urban-minded professionals, students and empty nesters, has evolved rapidly over the last couple of years into an even more pedestrian-friendly, car-optional place to live and work. The appearance of retailers like IKEA and Whole Foods in the neighborhood in the last year have fueled already significant residential development, and the booming innovation industry in and around the Cortex Innovation District suggests that demand is there and will continue to grow.

Enter 4101 Laclede, at the northwest corner of North Sarah Street and Laclede Avenue adjacent to Six North Apartments.

Offering 1-, 2- and 3-bedroom open concept condos and townhomes, the result will be the first new, for-sale property in the neighborhood for many years. Five storeys of condos with 6,000 sq ft of ground-floor retail space and a row of two-story townhomes will be ready for occupancy in 2017.

State-of-the-Art Amenities Placed in Historic Context

Buyers interested in 4101 Laclede are in good hands with One North Group, made up of developers Austin Barzantny, President of Grove Properties, and Michael Gingrich, Managing Partner of Atrium Properties. Both live in St. Louis, are known for progressive urban infill and mixed-used projects, and have defined their roles to date within cultivated and emerging neighborhoods.

The building features 54 units, including four two-level townhomes with apartments above. Community amenities for the property include:

  • Covered secure garage parking
  • Indoor clubhouse
  • Fitness center
  • Dedicated bike racks
  • Full-size pool
  • Outdoor cabanas, fire pits and outdoor Kitchen
  • Jacuzzi
  • Garden/green space
  • Exceptional city and CWE views

What’s in the Neighborhood?

4101 Laclede’s location makes it an ideal location for anyone wanting the live-work-play lifestyle in the CWE, and it’s a quick drive Downtown as well. In terms of dining alone, Retreat Gastropub, Scottish Arms, Northwest Coffee, Scarlett’s Wine Bar (recently opened by the owners of Sasha’s) and The Block Restaurant are all just steps away from the building’s front door. Whole Foods Market’s nearby Central West End location opened in 2016. 

4101 Laclede has the convenience of an established neighborhood with the appeal of new development not to mention the proximity to employers (Barnes-Jewish Hospital, Cortex Innovation Community), universities (Washington University School of Medicine, St. Louis University), parks (Forest Park) and co-working spaces (TechArtista, [email protected]). A new Metrolink station at Cortex campus is just a few blocks away.
