JEMA Creates MOFO

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 project is a three-story building with approximately 26 apartment units and 6000 sq. ft. of street-level retail. 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.
