ST. LOUIS, Mo. – Integrated Facility Services has completed complex mechanical contracting projects to convert two historic buildings in downtown St. Louis into mixed-use lofts and commercial space.
The Hoffman Lofts and Greeley Lofts are two of new multiple developments on Laclede’s Landing by St. Louis-based Advantes Development as part of a $55 million investment to add approximately 150 apartments in the riverfront neighborhood.
IFS provided design/build heating, ventilation and air conditioning systems, fire protection and plumbing services as part of the $9.6 million renovation of the former Hoffman Produce Building on North 2nd Street, which was built in 1882 as a produce distribution headquarter. IFS designed and installed the heating and cooling, fire protection and plumbing systems to serve the new uses of the 34,000-square-foot mixed-use building – including more than 10,000 square feet of commercial office space and 4,000 square feet of retail space on the first floor and 24 apartment units on the upper four floors.
IFS also provided design/build HVAC, fire protection and plumbing services as part of the $13 million Greeley Lofts renovation. Located in the 600 block of North 2nd Street, the Greeley Lofts renovation adds 36 one and two-bedroom apartments, more than 17,000 square feet of commercial space and 8,000 square feet of office space within the five-story building. The 19th century-era cast-iron facade building was once home to the Carlos S. Greeley’s grocery house.
Plumbing work included installing underground PVC piping and above grade water risers and waste/vent stacks throughout.
The Greeley Lofts are now leasing. While IFS’ work is substantially complete, Hoffman Lofts will begin welcoming residents soon.
