After more than $2.5 million in updates last year, St. Louis’ tallest high-rise, One Metropolitan Square, is adding several amenity upgrades. The downtown building’s lobby now boasts a 28-foot by 10-foot, 2,000-pound media wall with 112 LED panels. Construction will soon begin, too, on a 7,000-square-foot amenities lounge on the building’s 42nd floor.
The lounge will feature an open, modern floor plan with seating areas for socializing; a bar and game tables; and impressive views overlooking The Arch and downtown.
JLL, the firm managing the property, says the upgrades are being done in part to modernize the iconic building.
“One Metropolitan Square is undergoing a transformation and leading the way in terms of amenity offerings for Class A office in St. Louis,” Henry Voges, senior vice president, JLL Property Management Group. “The Eatery Food Hall added last year has been a huge success, and the media wall is something you won’t find in any other multi-tenant office building in St. Louis. With the planned amenities floor, it will be difficult to find a better tenant experience in the City of St. Louis.”
In the past year, One Metropolitan Square successfully completed eight renewals and five new tenant leases, including two agreements signed within the past month with FGM Architects and NGK Law Firm, both which are moving from a nearby downtown building. NGK will occupy approximately 6,000 square feet and FGM approximately 10,000 square feet. Both companies are expected to move late summer. One Metropolitan Square is currently just over 75 percent occupied, and JLL expects that number to increase with the planned amenities and upgrades.
