A new $29 million luxury apartment complex recently opened just south of downtown St. Louis in the historic Soulard neighborhood. The 1400 Russell Apartments feature 130 units in a four-story building at 13th Street and Russell Boulevard.

Propper Construction Services, the developer of the project, demolished the site of an old warehouse to create the new apartment complex. It features numerous amenities and taps the location’s walkability to restaurants, festivals and nightlife in the Soulard area.

1400 Russell features secured underground parking and elevator access to all four floors. Its amenities include:

• A rooftop swimming pool and sun deck with grilling stations, outdoor multi-screened televisions and kitchen;

• A rooftop lounge and outdoor sky terrace with decorative fire pits for entertaining guests;

• A ground-floor private courtyard with a large hot tub, lounge seating, grilling stations and fit pits;

• A ground-floor fitness center with wireless video monitors to access health programs like Fitness on Demand or other entertainment;

• A business center and library; and

• Concierge services.

The apartment complex includes a “social wall” above resident mail boxes with four video screens detailing information on Soulard events, local restaurant specials, apartment special events and helpful information on lifestyle needs.

Building technology also includes WIFI access in all common areas, tablet-activated television and more. The building features a monitored state-of-the-art security system with secured control access entries throughout and security cameras.

1400 Russell offers fully furnished or unfurnished units, featuring nine-foot ceilings, wood vinyl flooring, full kitchens with upscale appliances, quartz countertops, washers and dryers and more.

The complex features 99 one-bedroom units, 27 two-bedroom units and four studio apartments. Suites with private balconies facing Downtown St. Louis are also available.

Rents range from $965 for studio units up to $3,070 for two-bedroom suites.

Designed by Trivers Associates Architects, the front of the apartment building is clad in brick to match the character of the Soulard neighborhood. Paric Corp. was the general contractor.
