Schlafly Building to House High-End Lighting
David Schlafly is restoring the approximately 100-year-old building for a new use.
Developer David Schlafly owns it, and said one of the new tenants has signed and the other hasn’t.
The one that has signed, St. Louis Lighting, will represent manufacturers that sell high-end lighting to architects and designers.
He said the second, unsigned, tenant is a company that involves light in a different way, and that hopefully they will sign soon.
Schlafly restored the building at 2731 Sutton Boulevard behind it in 2008-2009.
He described both as “commercial building stock, approximately century-old, brick, main street buildings, with really good timber roof systems inside.”
He’s restoring the building on Manchester just as he did the Sutton building.
“I'm stripping the building to its elements, restoring all the interior parts, and put in a fully modern infrastructure,” he said. That includes new heating and cooling, electric, plumbing and high-end lighting. He said the front will be a modern glass front.
