The mid-rise building was built in 1901 as the J. Kennard & Sons Carpet Company Building. Much of the furnishings for the 1904 World's Fair would have passed through this building as John Kennard sat on the Board of Director's for the Fair.
In the 1950s Edison Brothers Shoes Company made this their world headquarters until the mid-1980s when they built a new tower one block West on Washington Avenue. This massive 1 bedroom, 1 bath suite is named in honor of the Edison Brother's history in this building (Most native St. Louisans still refer to the building as the Edison Bros. Building).
The building was later gutted and fully rehabilitated in the early 2000's and again in 2012 when it became 78 luxury apartments, including this large vacation rental.
Amenities available are a 24-hour fitness center, indoor heated salt water pool, game lounge, and rooftop terrace with hot tub and river views.
The building has secured street-level entry.
Parking for one vehicle is provided through a voucher program at a monitored garage just 1/2 block North of our location.
