The Post Building

St. Louis, Missouri

Client: StarWood Group

Size: 305,000 SF

Trivers Role: Lead Architect, Historic Architect

Photographer: Square

Recognizing the opportunity for development along the north edge of downtown St. Louis, particularly technological office space to support the upcoming National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency building, The StarWood Group purchased the Post-Dispatch Building. Originally constructed in 1930, the building had been continuously occupied but suffered from deferred maintenance and obsolete systems.

Rebranded as The Post Building, the core & shell design includes all new systems, 2 renovated and 4 newly constructed passenger elevators, replaced historic windows and new window openings on the blank brick North Addition structure, a new primary building entrance in the North Addition, and a glass rooftop amenity structure. Additional renovations include preserving the Pulitzer office and boardroom, installing new skylights serving two new central atriums with dramatic floating steel stairs and selectively-deconstructing printing presses with additional historic building elements placed at strategic locations throughout the building to maintain the legacy of Joseph Pulitzer and the Post-Dispatch.
