The Armory is not yet past its prime. Green Street St. Louis recently announced its plans for a $83.4 million redevelopment of the Armory building, and is currently working to place the building on the National Register of Historic Places. The Armory’s restoration is part of a coordinated effort to develop and revitalize St. Louis neighborhoods while taking full advantage of the existing infrastructure.
Proposed redevelopment plans include three floors of expansive office space and an underground parking area that will house 200 cars. The Armory’s future amenities will include a rooftop green space, a spa, and wellness center. After completion of the project, the entire area surrounding the Armory will be appropriately renamed the Armory District.
The aim of the restoration project is to turn the Armory into an iconic center that will connect surrounding neighborhoods (including the Cortex District and City Foundry), create new business and retail spaces, and serve as one of many new and coming attractions for the influx of entrepreneurs and millennial employees flocking to the St. Louis tech and startup scene.
With so much in store, the best may be yet to me for this iconic St. Louis landmark.
