Wilkinson School Project In The Works
Updated: Feb 5, 2019
Advantes continues to invest in the St. Louis area, renewing historical landmarks with residential options that honor the story of each structure.
Tweeting from his personal account, St. Louis’ 24th Ward Alderman Scott Ogilvie announced that the old Wilkinson School in the Ellendale Neighborhood is set for redevelopment by Advantes.
The project is long awaited, as the property has been poised for rejuvenation for a decade. Advantes plans to build new mixed use construction with office space and residential units, a garage and a community garden.
This redevelopment is one of many St. Louis school buildings finding new life as loft-style apartments, and supporters are anticipating positive results from the aesthetic improvement to these historic sites.
