Cullinan to develop 14-acre site near Saint Louis University,ph01

Cullinan Properties, Ltd. has been selected by Saint Louis University through a competitive process to acquire the rights to purchase and develop a 14-acre site at the intersection of Grand Boulevard and Chouteau Avenue in St. Louis.

A new 850,000-square-foot mixed-use development is planned for the site, which is adjacent to the new SSM Health Saint Louis University Hospital currently under construction and scheduled to open in Spring 2020. The 14-acre site at the prime intersection with easy access to I-64 and I-44 will offer a mix of retail, entertainment, restaurant, office, hotel and residential to the exciting new Prospect Yards district of Midtown.

Located in an area of rapid urban development, the project will help connect Saint Louis University’s north and south campuses, becoming the central commercial development for Midtown St. Louis and SLU’s 25,000-plus person institution. The project will connect the campuses with gathering space and event programming, providing needed amenities for university students and staff, as well as the general population and area workforce.

Cullinan Properties is partnering with BatesForum and Clayco for design-build services and Stock & Associates Consulting Engineers, Inc. for civil engineering services. Jim Loft, Carrie Hermann, and Justin Moses of Colliers International have been selected to lead the office leasing for this project while Patty Kueneke and Kathleen Cullinan Brill of Cullinan Properties will handle all other leasing inquiries.

The project is designed with connectivity in mind, and will be part of the Chouteau Greenway, an active and growing area in St. Louis connecting the Gateway Arch to Forest Park. With a direct connection to the Chouteau Greenway, the site can be accessed by walking and biking trails, as well as the nearby Grand MetroLink Station and area bus stops.
