Here's an STLToday listing for one:
STLtoday - For Sale (http://realestate.stltoday.com/RealEstate/Sales/Listing.asp?lid=186-713424 - broken link)
Studios are starting from the $80,000s, 1 bedroom's from the 120,000s, and 2 bedroom's from the 150,000s
It's in downtown, south of Washington Ave. and North of Highway Forty (on N 17th Street). It's apparently a rehabbed motel. Blu CitySpaces - Home
The only problem I see is that apparently there's a rough-looking 7-11 across the street.
This is planned for Washington Ave. It's called the SkyHouse.

They just recently tore down the drycleaners that was there I think. Unfortunately, recent rumor is that the project is dead. Sky House - Condominiums in Downtown St. Louis
This former Days Inn is now a beautiful apartment building.
I suggest following the link and seeing the before picture. They did a remarkable job with this building Urban St. Louis - View topic - Washington Avenue Apts. (aka Days Inn) - 1133 Washington Ave (http://www.urbanstl.com/viewtopic.php?t=377&postdays=0&postorder=asc&start =330 - broken link)
I don't have any more info than that.

That's a rendering, and apparently it's under construction. It's not the brick buildings we're used to, but it's nice.
The Syndicate-Trust Building is now the Syndicate Condos. Syndicate Living

I hear complaints about its architecture, about casinos not usually look good, but I like it just fine and it brings some life and light to downtown.
Here's a listing for Demun Pointe in Clayton. This condo is a little under $1 mil, but there was another listed for about $500,000.

Trianon Condos in Clayton is also planned, I'm not sure if construction has started. This condo is almost a mil, but there was another listing about $500k

This post is awful big already, and my computer hates me, so I'll go ahead and post this before something happens and I lose it. Perhaps I'll add some more new development projects in another post.

I plan to post more info in a couple posts tonight, but my computer is being testy, so I just wanted to get most the info on there. I have some more info to post in a couple minutes. I'd better make my original post more clear. I didn't mean I would post anything else in the thread, I just would post more in subsequent posts.
Falstaff Brewery Loft Development
Urban St. Louis - View topic - Falstaff Hts (aka Falstaff complex) - 1920 Shenandoah Avenue (http://www.urbanstl.com/viewtopic.php?t=2747&postdays=0&postorder=asc&star t=0 - broken link)
There was a fire recently, but the developers plan to keep on. South Side Journal | News | Four-alarm blaze at vacant Falstaff brewery
Workers Monday were boarding up windows on the east side of the old Lemp/Falstaff brewery, following a four-alarm fire in the vacant building early Sunday.
Firefighters worked for about four hours to extinguish the blaze in the building at Lemp and Shenandoah avenues. The fire was reported at 5:40 a.m., said Capt. Bob Keuss, public information officer for the St. Louis Fire Department.
The fire broke out on the first floor and spread to the second floor, he said.
Firefighters were delayed in getting to the blaze by cork insulation and paper in a cold storage area where the fire was centered, Keuss said.
Because the building is brick and concrete, damage wasn’t that extensive, Keuss said.
"The paperwork and the cork on the walls is what was burning," Keuss said.
Hulsey and the other co-owner, Meade Sommers, plan to convert the building into lofts. However, the economy has delayed their plans, Hulsey said.
The two already have renovated about 10 buildings in the old Falstaff complex and only two to three buildings remain, including the one where the fire broke out, Hulsey said.
A separate company called Lafayette-Lemp Development Group LLC announced in 2006 it had signed a contract to buy the building where the fire was located and an adjacent one and put up a 230,000-square-foot commercial and residential development with 20 to 120 apartments or apartments. But nothing came of those plans, Hulsey said.
The Lemp Brewery is being renovated. The Falstaff Brewery was originally the Lemp Brewery, then Lemp moved into their newer brewery, which is this one below.
Urban St. Louis - View topic - Lemp Brewery (http://www.urbanstl.com/viewtopic.php?t=2758 - broken link)
There are some proposals for retail, residential, and mixed use operations in the Lemp Brewery, and it is protected historically, which I assume also qualifies it for historic tax credits. However, it's apparently still caught up in legal tape. It's being rezoned, which sounds like a good thing.
I wonder if the brewery is as haunted as the Lemp Mansion supposedly is.

That Highrises.com site has links to info about other STL lofts.
The Dorsa Lofts are being sold and tenants are about to move. The new developers decided to leave the art deco from a few years ago on there and work with it. It kind of has a different look than most of the cities buildings. I'm still curious what is under that old coverup.

I know this building, but I can't think of its name. It's an old, recently renovated building as well, so if someone could remember the building's name I'd appreciate it. Here's a listing:

The Arcade-Wright building is being renovated as well.

Great posting! You obviously put a lot of work into it. Thank you! Regarding all of the development going on downtown, I think that it's great....but I'm also afraid that they are getting a bit ahead of themselves down there. I recently had a listing that we were attempting to sell for basically what the guy paid for it a few years ago and it sat there! Absolutely no activity whatsoever!
I guess that it's a matter of time before the absorption rates catch up with all of the projects.
My guess is that with all the new construction and rehabbing going out there it's hard to get a good price for a condo you only recently bought because you're competing against new construction or the newest coolest rehab project that's getting all the press.
there is also a stigma attached to the city that will take years to dull, but these projects are clearly the first step, crime curtailment and retail redevelopment should follow and then that's when people will be making money.
STLCardsBlues1989 - unless you have been in the area, looked at the building, and have taken a tour, then please do not question what Blu City Spaces looks like.
The 7-11 across the street does not have a rough look. For your information, the 7-11 is a sub-police station. Pretty safe if you ask me! I live in the building and I have to admit, it is by far the safest I have felt in the city.
It is not a rehabbed motel. Never has been a motel. Infact, it used to be a senior living center.
Blu City Spaces offers gated parking, 24 hour security service (they walk you to your car when desired), lock and key code entry, camaras on all sides of the building. It is beautifully maintained and landscaped. It has a bike room, fitness center, wi-fi lounge and the sales desk is really nice.
I suggest to future home buyers to take a look at the place before drawing any conclusions rather than accepting what others have written.
The address is 210 N 17th Street, St. Louis, MO 63103.
I have gone to Blu CitySpaces and I must say, it is not all it seems. Parking is behind 7-eleven. There are so many difficult people who hang around the building. I have a friend who lives next to the building and there was recently 3 stabbings across the street and a few months back there was a homeless woman who was raped and murdered. There's a church behind the building, which feeds the homeless. Although the insides are nice but small, if it was situated in a different neighborhood, I would have purchased. I wouldn't be caught dead living there
