After being approved by the planning commission twice, Clarendale of Clayton has been redesigned. In this new iteration of the design, the top two floors of the proposed building now sit back from the corner of Hanley and Clayton road. The design also appears to be more aligned with the nearby "The Boulevard" development. Whether or not that is a good thing is to be decided by the city of Clayton and the neighbors. At 178 feet in height, Clarendale blocks the views of the neighboring residential tower, which to them could be more NIMBYism.
The actual facade is to be brick and glass with some stone detailing. Landscaping also looks pretty good when looking at the renderings. The apartment tower has balconies for the residents (since this portion of the project is for independent living people). Down Clayton road to the East, the assisted living building has a courtyard in the center so residents there can still go outside and enjoy life.
In addition to senior living space, Clarendale will offer a small retail space on Hanley for something like a coffee shop or small cafe. The developer is The Ryan Companies. They currently have the site, which was a Schnucks grocery store. Clarendale should be open by the Spring of 2020. Below, you can find additional renderings and a fly around video. The new design goes before the planning commission on July 16th.
