2021 Non-Residential Development that Best Exemplifies Major Community Impact
City Foundry STL
Developer: New and Found Development
Location: St. Louis, Missouri
The $217 million redevelopment of City Foundry STL is one of the largest historic redevelopments in the city’s history. The complex will feature a 700-person event space, a theater, grocery store, office space, retail space, restaurants and bars and a new multistory parking garage.
The development is on the site of the foundry built by Century Electric in 1929–which functioned as a foundry for more than 80 years before closing–and is in a previous food desert.
FoPa Partners LLC, an affiliate of St. Louis-based development firm Lawrence Group, acquired the site in 2015 and created a redevelopment that will result in 800 new permanent jobs, clean up 100 years of environmental contamination and be built by majority minority business enterprises. A second phase will feature 282 apartments.
The development will reinvigorate the midtown area of St. Louis, serving as a place to gather, work eat and play. The development received $18.9 million in federal HTC equity from the Foss Federal HTC Fund LLC and $21.9 million in state HTC equity from Foss Missouri Fund.
