St. Louis — The project could lead to more public-private development in the area.
St. Louis — Washington University has announced plans to remake a central part of the Delmar Loop, which is a six-block shopping and dining destination near the university, with an $80 million project consisting of stores and apartments for approximately 550 students.
The project comprises a four- to six- story building of retail space and apartments on Delmar Boulevard at Eastgate Avenue and three new mid-rise apartment buildings on Enright Avenue nearby. Construction is scheduled to begin January 2013 with occupancy in August 2014, according to university officials. Washington University owns all the affected property.
