Studio Gang has revealed their design for One Hundred, a mixed-use tower to be located on Forest Park in St. Louis, Missouri. Studio Gang’s first project in the city, the tower will rise over 350 feet and include retail, amenities, parking and residential apartments featuring views of the park and the Gateway Arch.

Developed by Mac Properties, Studio Gang’s design calls for a tiered, angled tower that will provide each unit with views and improve energy performance. Each tier will comprise four stories, creating space for outdoor terraces for a quarter of the apartments. Inside the tower, each apartment features a corner living room with double exposures to capture and enhance the quality of natural light throughout the unit.

All units will have access to a communal terrace atop the building’s green roof podium, which will house a range of amenities and social spaces. On the ground floor, a series of retail spaces will activate the street and create connections between St. Louis’ Central West End district and Forest Park, strengthening the city’s overall urban fabric.

“In a climate with four distinct seasons, we wanted to make it possible for residents to enjoy the different views and natural changes in light over the course of the year,” explains Jeanne Gang. “By experimenting with the geometry of the facade and refining the apartment layouts, we were able to make every apartment into a corner unit perched above the park and city.”

The building has also been designed with environmental concerns in mind – the leaf-shaped plan and tiered massing will both contribute to an efficient performance, reducing overall energy use. The building’s green roofs will double as rainwater collection banks for irrigation and to abate stormwater runoff.

One Hundred is expected to break ground next year, and is scheduled for completion in 2019.
