Iconic building to become loft apartments

August 29, 2018 by  

The former Woodward & Tiernan Printing Company office building is being renovated to offer 164 loft apartments for urban living, with units pre-leasing now.

At one time, St. Louis was a center for commercial printing, and Woodward & Tiernan was one of the city’s biggest printing concerns. In 2015, the building was Listed on the National Register of Historic Places. In 2017, Pier Property Group bought it, and is now redeveloping it into lofts. This renovation will result in a true loft conversion, as the building is an original plant being remodeled, not new construction.

Perhaps the most notable feature of the building is its huge windows, which let in floods of daylight. Some of the individual units will have windows as large as 18 feet wide by 20 feet in height. The senior leasing manager on the project, Amanda Walker, says the natural light gives the units a pleasing blend of old and new—modern design coupled with tried-and-true warehouse features.

Among the planned amenities are a rooftop terrace with indoor lounge and pool, a business center, a fitness center, and a dog park. Indoor parking will be provided, as will charging station for electric cars. Illustrated brochures are a great tool for showing prospective tenants what their new home looks like, and developers on projects like this can have a brochure printing company create them. The building is expected to open in December.
