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 900 N. Tucker, 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.
Construction on the project started in August, 2019 with an expected completion date of January, 2021.
