Clayton on the Park: With a stately presence on Brentwood Blvd, Clayton on the Park offers residents Instagram-worthy views of the city, Charles Shaw Park, and beyond. Versatile floor plans feature floor-to-ceiling windows to take full-vista advantage, but residents and their guests enjoy the most wow-worthy views from the spectacular 24th-floor rooftop deck. With a courtyard terrace, dipping pool, and more, it’s a gathering place that can make even a tame and tepid Tuesday feel like a party. And if it happens to be baseball season, enjoy equally great views of two outdoor TV screens while your steak is on the grill. “Our team of interior, landscape and lighting designers worked with Koman to create a dynamic contemporary environment,” says Margaret McDonald of HOK. “Our concept was to create sophisticated and playful spaces that support the needs and lifestyles of their residents.”
The Euclid: When your appetite says “Now!” and there’s an echo in your ‘fridge, dinner awaits just downstairs if you live at The Euclid, in the very walkable Central West End. The 71-unit property is home to the city’s first Shake Shack, the wildly popular restaurant from St. Louis native Danny Meyer. When the need for groceries can no longer be ignored, leave your car in the underground garage, and stroll over to the new Whole Foods Market. (Google maps declares it a 187-foot trip, door to door.) At The Euclid’s recent grand opening celebration, it was SRO in the stunning two-story lobby. Upstairs in the glass-walled party room, enthusiasm was high. One visitor proclaimed, “We’ve lived in the Central West End for 20 years, and this is a fantastic addition. I love our house, but this could tempt me to move!”
Chroma: If you’ve lived in St. Louis for even one year, you’ve experienced just how sweltering an August day can be. (Natives and newbies know that AC is their friend). But when your new
address is Chroma, you’ll head outdoors happily to chill in the private, resort-style pool. With select units just now opening and more to follow this summer, General Manager Michael
Mahoney says the community was created with a “no expenses spared” philosophy. “The pool is outstanding, and the courtyard includes a yoga garden and hammock retreat,” he says. An onsite
Avenue C self-service market adds convenience to the mix, and Chroma’s introductory price point makes luxury accessible. Chroma is the new kid on of the most innovative blocks in
St. Louis, Chouteau Avenue in The Grove. A haven for fans of locally owned shops, great music venues and all things organic, The Grove was recently honored with a “Great Street” award from the
American Planning Association. With nightclubs, weekend dance parties and even a tiki bar, The Grove is indulgent fun and Chroma is right in the center of it all.

The Euclid in St. Louis’ Central West End neighborhood opened its doors on March 15. The 71-apartment building celebrated its opening with a ribbon-cutting ceremony with Mayor Lyda Krewson and a chance for prospective residents to see what is available. Maggie St. Geme, marketing manager for building owner Koman Group, refers to The Euclid as a “boutique” building with features including beautiful ceilings and fixtures.
“The 71 Euclid apartments are sleek and sophisticated and are adapted to today’s modern lifestyle,” she says.
Each of The Euclid’s apartments offers fine finishes, quartz countertops, tiled bathrooms and wood-look luxury vinyl plank flooring. Natural light pours into the building, and most of the 71 units feature balconies.
“The Euclid offers the latest in building technology and design. Our access control system provides the utmost in resident privacy and convenience,” St. Geme says. “At the entrance is a touch-screen intercom box with a video chat feature whereby residents can use their smartphone to receive calls from guests and quickly, easily allow them to come up.”
The second floor of The Euclid offers a 24-hour gym and fitness center, along with a community lounge with shuffleboard, a bar area and a balcony that overlooks the picturesque neighborhood.
“Most of our residents are working professionals,” St. Geme says. “They come home and want a true retreat from the energy and bustle of the Central West End.”
She notes that technology is offering people products and services to make their lives easier, more convenient and more luxurious. Many people are looking to update their lifestyles to match, truly bringing every aspect of their lives into the 21st century.
“Apartment living is coming in line with that,” she says. “There’s such a vibrant energy in our neighborhoods, and being able to walk out your door and access everything is exciting.”
