ST. LOUIS - (April 14, 2022)

225-unit multifamily development in historic district scheduled to welcome residents this summer

Draper and Kramer, Incorporated, today announced pre-leasing is underway for Moda at The Hill, the developer’s new 225-unit multifamily project at 2100 Boardman St. in St. Louis’ historic The Hill neighborhood. Located just south of Interstate 44 and west of Kingshighway Boulevard, the community is nearing completion and will welcome residents this summer.

The four-story apartment building offers a mix of modern one- and two-bedroom units ranging from 600 to 1,200 square feet, a full suite of hospitality-inspired amenities and above-ground garage parking for 250 vehicles. Rents start at $1,270 per month.

“The start of leasing is an exciting time for any new development, but that’s especially true with Moda at The Hill since we’re introducing an amenity-rich rental option that simply hasn’t been available in this neighborhood until now,” said Todd Bancroft, president and CEO of Chicago-based Draper and Kramer. “Many people have been drawn to The Hill in the past as a place to visit and get a great meal, and now we’re helping reframe the area as an exciting destination for rental living by pairing the authentic feel of an established, close-in neighborhood with the conveniences, modern features and lifestyle offerings of a new-construction apartment community.”

Outdoor amenities at Moda include a large, landscaped courtyard with a resort-style pool and hot tub, as well as cabanas, grilling stations and fire pits.

Individual residences at Moda feature modern kitchens with granite countertops, stainless-steel appliances and subway tile backsplashes; in-unit laundry; plank-style flooring throughout; secure fobbed access; and private balconies or terraces in select units.

Amenities at Moda, which are all centered around the lobby to create a lively, hospitality-style atmosphere, include community lounges for gathering and socialization, a fitness center with yoga studio, resident game room, coworking spaces and pet care facilities. Outdoors, residents will enjoy a large, landscaped courtyard with a resort-style pool and hot tub, as well as cabanas, grilling stations and fire pits. Other conveniences include complimentary Wi-Fi in common areas, bike storage and 24-hour emergency maintenance.

“Our focus for programming the amenities was creating spaces for community living and interaction,” said James Elsman, development manager for Draper and Kramer. “We thought about the resident experience in terms of expanding beyond the walls of their apartment to amplify their lifestyle. The result is a lot of spaces – from multiple outdoor grilling stations to a variety of seating pods in the lobby and other lounge areas – where residents can entertain friends, meet their neighbors or simply have a comfortable and beautifully designed place to work or relax.”

Elsman added that the location of Moda at The Hill will be especially appealing to prospective residents. The community is within walking distance to a variety of local restaurants, shops, markets and parks, and a short drive from downtown St. Louis and nearby employment centers such as the medical district surrounding Barnes-Jewish Hospital. It is also in proximity to Missouri Botanical Gardens and St. Louis’ renowned Forest Park, home to the St. Louis Zoo and St. Louis Art Museum.

“Particularly as we head into warmer weather months, residents will appreciate the walkability of The Hill,” he said. “This area has been a wonderful residential community for years, and much of its flavor stems from the local businesses that anchor it and create natural destinations for pedestrians. It’s a very authentic neighborhood that will appeal to everyone from young families to busy professionals to downsizers.”

Moda at The Hill is part of a larger 11-acre master plan, led by Draper and Kramer, that also includes single-family homes from McBride Homes, and a community park space. It is the third new-construction multifamily development Draper and Kramer has built in St. Louis, following EVO Apartments and EVO Flats, which are both located in the suburb of Richmond Heights.
