Morgan Ford in TGS May See Three-Story, 26-Unit Mixed-Used Project

Planning and design work is progressing for a mixed-used project on Morgan Ford Road in the city’s Tower Grove South neighborhood. An envisioned project would replace a car wash as Morgan Ford and Connecticut with a three-story, 26-unit apartment building with 6,000sf of street-level retail.

The 0.42-acre site is now owned by George Smith Partners out of Los Angeles. Among the firm’s team is Vice President Kyle Howerton, a St. Louis native and graduate of Saint Louis University. Initial site design is by JEMA.

From JEMA:

JEMA’s design for a mixed-use residential and retail ground-up building located in south St. Louis is moving forward. The project is located on Morganford Road and is aptly named MOFO. The design concept utilizes a series of solid and perforated corten steel panels, iron spot brick, and wood panels creating a proportion and rhythm reminiscent of historical south St. Louis buildings and streetscapes.
