Downtown St. Louis is known for its breathtaking architecture, and those design elements are not exclusive to its upgraded office buildings or historic public spaces. From expansive, industrial lofts to timeless and traditional townhomes, there are residential units available for all lifestyles and design preferences. Peek inside these five Downtown rentals and get ready to call the movers.
Quintessential Loft Living
When you visualize a Downtown apartment, this is probably what comes to mind. Arcade Apartments offer stunning, industrial-style lofts with features such as 14- to 20-foot ceilings, open floor plans, polished concrete flooring and panoramic windows (depending on the unit.) While you don’t have to be an artist to live here, parts of the building are designated as affordable artist rentals—and all residents may access the 11,000-square-foot shared artist studio space.
Arcade Apartments, 800 Olive St.
