KAI, working with a development partner and the St. Louis Housing Authority, created a dynamic 30+ acre HOPE VI-funded, mixed-income community of senior housing, affordable housing and market-rate rentals at the site of the former Arthur Blumeyer public housing buildings, which were demolished. The original Blumeyer site contained apartment buildings for families as well as for seniors, and Renaissance Place continues that tradition of senior living.
Senior Living is an $80 million, 109,000 SF 3-story, universally-designed accessible building with 110 units. A second building is also universally-designed for accessibility and is for non-seniors. Amenities in this new development include lounges, fitness center, billiards room, large multipurpose community room, common kitchen and dining room, sunroom, beauty salon/barber shop and a medical suite.
