ST. LOUIS (KMOX) – First the National Blues Museum, then a multi-million dollar expansion to Jazz at the Bistro.
Now, could another bit of the blues be coming to Grand Center?
“There will be both entertainment and other media companies,” developer Steve Smith.
Smith is renovating the Missouri Theater Building at 634 N. Grand in Grand Center, and hinted that the ‘entertainment’ aspect would be a nod to St. Louis’ musical heritage.
Various reports have those floors being filled with HEC-TV and a B. B. King Blues Restaurant and Bar, though Smith says he can’t confirm any of the tenants’ names.
The $23 million renovation will include 108 market-rate apartments. A second phase will replace a parking lot with 120 apartments and a parking garage.
“I really believe that downtown, midtown, Grand Center, CORTEX, Central West End are all starting to grow together,” he says.
