ST. LOUIS - (January 02, 2018)

Phase II of new-construction development brings 46 townhome-inspired rentals to Richmond Heights, Mo.

Draper and Kramer, Incorporated, a full-service national real estate firm, announces it has opened The Flats at EVO, a collection of 46 townhome-inspired rental apartments in the popular St. Louis suburb of Richmond Heights, Mo. The new-construction community is the second phase of EVO, a multi-phase rental development that also includes an adjacent four-story, 281-unit apartment complex that opened in 2016.

Located at 9015 Eager Road, The Flats at EVO comprises four two- and three-story buildings, each with approximately 12 single-level residences. The 46 units include one-, two- and three-bedroom plans ranging from 764 to 1,465 square feet. Each has a private entrance and an attached one- or two-car garage. Leasing and first move-ins are underway, with rents ranging from $1,375 to $2,570; currently renters will receive one month free on a 13-month lease.

“The Flats at EVO are the only rental option of their kind in this area, giving residents the feel and privacy of townhome living yet with access to the full suite of amenities that are part of the larger EVO community,” said Julie Johnson, senior vice president and director of management services for Chicago-based Draper and Kramer. “There’s been a lot of anticipation for The Flats since we started construction on them last fall, and we’ve seen strong interest from renters since we officially opened our doors earlier this month, with a number of residents already moved in.”

Johnson noted that amenities available to The Flats residents at the neighboring four-story EVO complex include a heated outdoor saltwater pool. The pool deck features private cabanas and outdoor kitchen prep areas with gas grills. Other amenities include a dog/pet spa with two pet-washing stations; an 1,100-square-foot, 24-hour fitness room; a yoga/spin studio where complimentary fitness programming with trainers will be offered; catering kitchen; and business center. An indoor rooftop sky deck features lounge areas and a bar surrounded by windows showcasing views of the St. Louis Arch.

“With Draper and Kramer’s extensive history as a leading multifamily developer and property manager, we’ve put a tremendous amount of thought and planning into the lifestyle EVO as a whole will offer renters,” said Johnson. “That includes not only a robust package of amenities and services, but also a mix of unit types to choose from – which is why we decided to include The Flats at EVO.”

All floor plans at The Flats have an open layout with island kitchens overlooking the living space. Units also feature a private balcony or patio, full in-unit laundry room and large walk-in closets.

“These features in The Flats, along with the attached garages and private entrances, are really what you might expect in a for-sale townhome or condo, and give renters a very different feel than other apartments available in this area,” said Johnson.

Interior finishes at The Flats include laminate wood flooring; granite countertops, light-toned cabinetry and stainless steel appliances in the kitchen; and gray paint throughout each unit.

The Flats at EVO are less than 10 miles from downtown St. Louis and also neighbor the popular suburb of Clayton. The surrounding neighborhood features multiple bike trails and outdoor spaces; nearby grocery options including Whole Foods and Trader Joe’s; shopping at the Galleria Mall and the Promenade at Brentwood; and a variety of restaurants such as Bonefish Grill, PF Changs, Weber Grill and Mai Lee.
