Founding Principal Phil Hulse’s first major redevelopment project in the City of St. Louis brings new life to the former St. Louis Car Company location. Hall Street, in north St. Louis, is home to numerous businesses, but not many modern business parks. When the St. Louis Business Center project began, our goal was to not only update the building, but redefine the experience.

Efficient reuse

Across the 54-acre site, we began with adaptive reuse of the existing buildings, rehabilitating and redeveloping them to meet modern demands. With a history in building passenger railroad cars, the building was primed for updates to improve capabilities throughout heavy-duty crane systems, cross-dock loading and rail access. By retaining the building’s high-strength floor, we were even capable of meeting the needs of Alro Steel fabricators, and their tons of raw and process metal.

Moving ahead

After reusing the existing spaces, we completed additional tilt-up structures that maximize the available space. Areas that once housed materials and finished railcars now serve the high demands of multimodal transport tenants for parking and storage for containers. Today, St. Louis Business Park now houses 12 businesses, employing more than 600 people.
