JEMA Brings Modern Contextualism to Tower Grove South
Construction is nearing completion at Y|O at the corner of Wyoming and Morgan Ford. JEMA’s design for this 33,000 sq. ft. mixed-use residential project brings modern contextualism to the Tower Grove South neighborhood of St. Louis. The development combines the renovation of an existing traditional St. Louis brick building constructed in 1902 with the new construction of a four-story ground-up building. The design features full-height storefront along Morgan Ford, a multi-colored brick facade, a communal rooftop deck, and a balcony for every unit. JEMA’s design preserves the neighborhood scale and sense of history of the existing building while also bringing a modern design to a progressive neighborhood.
Developers Kyle Howerton, Rob Maltby, and Michael Anderson bring this development to Tower Grove South in a follow-up to MOFO Urban Residences, JEMA’s three-story mixed-use design at 3172 Morgan Ford.
Construction is estimated to be complete mid-2023.
