The Association is set to host its next meeting on Tuesday, June 21 at 6:30pm. This meeting is dedicated to the community reviewing and discussing Lux Living’s revised proposed development at 1070 S. Kingshighway (the former Drury properties).
This 6-story, 155-unit, 155-parking space (+30 bike stalls) apartment proposal incorporates some feedback from the community meetings held in September & October of 2021. Changes include:
The parking garage entrances/exits moved from the alley to Kingshighway. This community request is a variance from the Form-Based Code.
Relocation of the pool courtyard from the east side of the building (facing the neighborhood) to the Kingshighway side.
More red brick in the exterior facade.
Construction & Logistics Schedule (per Lux Living)
A standard temporary fencing and screening will be implemented along all sides of the project according to the final location of the project property lines and setbacks, once established.
Additional traffic and parking caused by construction activities should not, per Lux Living, impact surrounding residents as construction workers will be instructed to park on site during the construction of the garage. Once the two level parking structure is completed workers will be directed to park inside.
All construction material and equipment deliveries will exclusively use Kingshighway to enter and exit the site. They plan to use the tower crane on the project to load, unload, and stage delivered items on site.
Per Lux Living, general construction activities will take place during standard work hours as prescribed by the City of St. Louis regarding construction projects on major arteries like Kingshighway.
Incorporated in their civil and site plan, they will complete necessary repairs and replacements to certain public right of ways. They’ve stated that additional damage to public or private property will be repaired/replaced on a case by case basis.
Construction activities are slated to begin early in the first quarter of 2023 with an estimated schedule duration of 18 months.
We encourage you to attend and participate in the community discussion at the conclusion of the development presentation. Understanding that these plans are final and will go before the Preservation Board, we will ask residents and stakeholders for clarifying questions, not suggested changes.
