In January, Brinkmann Constructors celebrated the completion of a $68 million, 455,00-square-foot, 287 market-rate apartment community to transform the Skinker-DeBaliviere neighborhood of St. Louis. The Expo at Forest Park development includes two seven-story apartment buildings, 30,000 square feet of ground-floor retail, a full-service grocery story and a taproom.

Tegethoff Development led the project, which broke ground in early 2020. Trivers designed the project, built by Brinkmann. Additional project partners included Bi-State Development, Great Rivers Greenway, Citizens for Modern Transit, Forest Park and the City of St. Louis.

The project site, which borders Forest Park and the Missouri History Museum, is situated just northwest of the Forest Park-DeBaliviere Transit Center, where Metrolink’s Red and Blue lines meet. Residents may ride the MetroLink to Forest Park, the Cortex Innovation District and nearby medical campuses. Garage parking for commuters is part of the development.
