Overview / Details

Originally constructed in the late 1800s as the Liggett & Myers Tobacco Co. Building, and used primarily as a tobacco drying warehouse, Station Plaza offers 87 historically renovated apartments. When constructed, Liggett & Myers manufactured roughly twenty percent of the nation’s plug tobacco, making them the largest producer of this type of chewing tobacco in the country and placing Station Plaza on the National Register of Historic Places. Today, its sophisticated and stunningly preserved industrial architecture is a reflection of St. Louis’ significant former tobacco industry, the era it was built in, and a reminder of the area’s treasured history.

Station Plaza showcases this rich history with beautifully exposed wood post and beam, high ceilings, and oversized windows that allow an abundance of natural light. These unique apartments feature open floor plans, European-styled kitchen cabinetry, all black appliances, vinyl plank wood flooring, and wonderful views of Aloe Plaza and Union Station.

Community amenities include on-site fitness center, laundry facility, gated surface parking, bike storage, and a community room with kitchenette, lounge area, conference room, TV and pool table. Station Plaza is a pet friendly community located next to several green spaces downtown, and is conveniently located in the Locust Street Business District with access to restaurants, parks, entertainment, and employment.
