St. Louis, MO (October 27, 2020) – The historic Merchandise Mart building at 1000 Washington Avenue in downtown St. Louis, kicked off a long-planned transformation and rebranding today.

Milwaukee, Wisc.-based real estate services firm, Mandel Group, Inc. has owned and managed the building since 2016. It occupies a full city block bounded by Washington Avenue, 10th, 11th, and St. Charles Streets in the heart of the Washington Avenue Loft District, near the Convention Center. The property includes 213 loft apartments and long-time retail tenants including Stanley’s Cigar Lounge, Dapper Gents Grooming Lounge and Sen Thai Asian Bistro. Together, these entities comprise a thriving urban destination for residents, retail, dining and commerce.

“When we acquired this historic property, we began planning for improvements that would add value for our residents and the surrounding neighborhood,” said Mandel Group COO, Phillip Aiello. “Today we are excited to be kicking off the project with our on-site management team, and making a significant investment that will translate into an elevated resident and guest experience for our community in St. Louis,” he added.

Construction activities are underway with improvements to the entry, lobby, office, and new amenity areas including co-working spaces, a clubroom, rooftop terrace, and dog run. The renovation is expected to be complete in early March of 2021. E.M. Harris Construction Company is the general contractor. Engberg Anderson is the design architect.
