St. Luke’s Plaza

St. Luke’s Plaza, located in the Central West End neighborhood of St. Louis, is comprised of 216 units. St. Luke’s Plaza is one of NHPF’s most substantial rehabilitation properties. With thousands of people working at nearby hospitals and medical centers, as well as in a variety of corporate and nonprofit settings, there was a need for affordable housing in an area viewed as vibrant, historic, and expensive. St. Luke’s Plaza, a multi-family property, was built in 1929 and was in need of substantial repairs and renovation. The rehab work of 2010 and 2011 included installing new individual HVAC systems; upgrading kitchens, where needed; as well as all-new bathrooms, carpet, and paint, throughout; new roofs and front entrances; major tuck pointing, repaired balconies, replaced waste lines, and a renovated/expanded management office.
