Two Twelve Clayton Brings 250 New Luxury Apartments to St. Louis Suburb

August 25, 2017

Unparalleled luxury living is now available in Clayton, Mo., a close-in suburb of St. Louis just 10 miles west of the city’s downtown, with the grand opening of Two Twelve Clayton, a new 26-story Class A high-rise comprised of 250 apartments. Featuring an impressive 9,300 square feet of amenities, Two Twelve sets a new standard for rental residences with its club-style living for busy professionals in Clayton’s central business district, which serves as a center of business and financial activity for metro St. Louis. First move-ins began earlier this month.

Located at 212 S. Meramec Ave., Two Twelve is a joint venture between two Chicago firms, CA Ventures and White Oak Realty Partners, with national property manager The Habitat Company, also from Chicago, managing the property and overseeing leasing.

“It’s very exciting to see a building of this caliber open in this area of St. Louis – something that’s been specifically designed and styled to meet the demands of sophisticated Clayton residents,” said JJ Smith, principal of CA Ventures. “From the building’s striking silhouette on the Clayton skyline to its impressive suite of amenities, including the most dynamic apartment rooftop/outdoor living space in the area, Two Twelve raises the bar for rental living in Clayton.

“It also puts residents steps away from the Clayton MetroLink Station, adjacent to Shaw Park and less than 2 miles from the St. Louis Galleria shopping center, making all the advantages of city living easy to access,” Smith added.

Two Twelve includes studio, one-, two- and three-bedroom units offering 592 to 1,366 square feet with rents ranging from $1,706 to $4,415. Apartments feature floor-to-ceiling windows; chef-inspired kitchens with white quartz countertops, two-tone cabinetry, stainless steel appliances and white glass mosaic tile backsplashes. Residences also include 9-foot ceilings and spectacular views with select units featuring private balconies, oversized walk-in closets and full-size washer/dryers.

A variety of five-star building amenities are available to residents, including a rooftop deck with a resort-inspired pool, outdoor sundeck with lounge seating, fire pit and outdoor dining area with grills; fitness center; yoga studio; and a resident lounge. Two Twelve is also pet friendly and smoke free.

“St. Louis has always been an attractive market for us because the city has so much to offer residents, from both a recreational and economical perspective,” said Richard Blum, managing principal for White Oak Realty Partners. “And now, we can offer the opportunity to live in one of the most engaging, modern rental buildings St. Louis has ever seen. With its convenient location to Clayton’s business district and top-of-the-line amenities, Two Twelve will definitely be filling a void in the strong St. Louis rental market.”

Residents of Two Twelve will be at the center of an array of cultural and entertainment opportunities in Clayton, including the sprawling Shaw Park, award-winning Shaw Park Aquatic Center, a collection of boutiques, galleries and restaurants renowned throughout the region. Additionally, The Saint Louis Art Fair, rated among the top of the nation’s festivals, attracts more than 150,000 people to Clayton’s streets each September. Other special events include the Taste of Clayton food festival, evening receptions in the area’s art galleries, a farmer’s market, Parties in the Park cocktail gatherings each spring and summer, and The Big Read literary festival in the fall.

“The surrounding community has been very interested in Two Twelve, so we’re thrilled to welcome our first residents,” said Sheila Byrne, executive vice president of property management for The Habitat Company. “As they’ll soon find out, the experience Two Twelve Clayton delivers to the market is unparalleled. There’s no other community in the area that combines this level of sophisticated urban design, LEED certification and refined luxury amenities.”

Home to Fortune 500 companies, such as healthcare giant Centene Corporation, and the prestigious Washington University, the suburb of Clayton is just 10 minutes from Lambert-St. Louis International Airport and 15 minutes from downtown St. Louis.
