PwC-Anchored Office Tower Opens in Downtown St. Louis
- Nov 08, 2019
A new Class A office tower anchored by PwC has opened its doors in downtown St. Louis, marking a major step forward for the $260 million expansion of Ballpark Village, a mixed-use neighborhood that the St. Louis Cardinals and The Cordish Cos. are developing in the metro.
The 11-story building topped out in April. Dubbed The PwC Pennant Building, the property was designed by HKS Architects and TAO + LEE Associates and constructed by PARIC Corp. The building includes 120,000 square feet of office space, in addition to street-level retail and more than 460 structured parking spaces. PwC’s office features a private rooftop deck.
FOX Sports Midwest, a regional sports network, will move its business offices to the building, joining PwC and investment banking firm ButcherJoseph. The TV network’s primary studio is within the existing first phase of Ballpark Village, and a second studio will be built in the new office premises.
Expansion scheme takes shape
The PwC Pennant Building, which broke ground in December 2017, is the first building to open within the second phase of the 10-acre, master-planned Ballpark Village development. Upon completion, the expansion project will bring an additional 700,000 square feet of dining, entertainment, hotel, residential, retail and lifestyle space to the downtown.
Other properties underway at Ballpark Village include an upscale hotel—Live! by Loews St. Louis—which will open in the first quarter of 2020, a 29-story luxury residential tower—One Cardinal Way, opening in the following quarter—and a three-story retail pavilion overlooking the new plaza. New amenities within the second phase will include Baseballism, Davio’s Northern Italian Steakhouse, Onelife Fitness and Sports & Social St. Louis.
Developer The Cordish Cos. and the St. Louis Cardinals partnered to build Ballpark Village after the Major League Baseball team opened Busch Stadium in 2006. The $100 million first phase of the mixed-use development opened in 2014. The Pwc Pennant Building represents the first new-construction office building in downtown St. Louis in more than a generation.
