So a Co-worker and I have accepted a job and the training for this job will either be in Louisville or St. Louis (its not up to us, but I'll post in both city forums)

Anyways, were both about 23 years old, and were looking for an apartment for 9 months. Not sure if there are alot of apartments for rent for 9 months. (Any suggestions would be helpful) Our job is located on 2300 Market St, outside of downtown. We were hoping to be able to ride a bus there, (not sure if there is a bus route near this location)

So we were hoping you could suggestion, some appartments or high rises with rent near $750-$900 for a two bedroom, two bath. We are pretty young, so being near people our same age range is relatively important.

There's all kinds of lofts and apartments in the city, so finding one shouldn't be a problem.

Downtown West Lofts - Locust Central Business District, St. Louis has some listings for lofts in your area, but it's a bit outdated. At the very least it will give you ideas and it usually has links to the lofts websites.
Midtown St. Louis - Grand Center, St. Louis here's some more

You could probably find some nice and affordable lofts/condos/apartments around the Locust, Lucas, Market, Olive Street and Washington Avenue/Blvd area (Washington Ave. becomes Washington Blvd after it intersects Jefferson Avenue according to the maps.

Urban St. Louis - Index (http://urbanstl.com/index.php - broken link) has lots of information.

I'll try to help you more later, but I have to go now. I'm not sure if any of those places have 9 month leases, though. You may have to call them once you find one you like.

Google Maps may help you figure out how close a loft is to your work.

Thanks for the help so far! I've looked up some of the lofts you suggested, seams a bit out of our price range. We were looking to rent, and from what I've checked (craigslist), for our price range sounds like we'll have to look somewhere outside of Market st, in downtown St. Louis. We were also hoping to commute via bus or other transit, so we were hoping you could suggest some other areas that would suit our criteria(s)

You can always take the metro, it's $4 round trip I think. I'm not sure how close to your work they stop, though.

Helix Realty - St. Louis, Mo - Apartments (broken link)

There's some for $650-$765 in the Central West End
I think Delmar's gonna be about 4 miles from you. I think Lacleded will be about 3 miles.
Waterman should be about 4.5 miles
Helix Realty - St. Louis, Mo - Apartments (broken link)
University City would probably be 7-8 miles.

Hope that helps.

Here's all kinds of pictures of different neighborhoods, fun to look at even if you don't plan to live there.
Urban St. Louis - View Forum - Photography - Showcase St. Louis (http://urbanstl.com/viewforum.php?f=24 - broken link)

This one is supposed to be about 4 miles, but it's $1000/month
STLtoday - For Rent (http://realestate.stltoday.com/RealEstate/Rentals/Listing.asp?lid=256-770023 - broken link)
This one is supposed to be about 4.5 miles and it's $900/month
STLtoday - For Rent (http://realestate.stltoday.com/RealEstate/Rentals/Listing.asp?lid=386-778604 - broken link)

It's close to Forest Park, so I'd assume there's a metrolink nearby.

Here's a cute one, about 4-5 miles, $675/month STLtoday - For Rent (http://realestate.stltoday.com/RealEstate/Rentals/Listing.asp?lid=119-80001227 - broken link)

This one is less than 2 miles, but there's not much info about it.
STLtoday - For Rent (http://realestate.stltoday.com/RealEstate/Rentals/Listing.asp?lid=101-T1 - broken link)

st louis, MO apts/housing for rent classifieds - craigslist is a good place to check as well.

And the Metro has month-passes for $60/mo, which will save you a lot over paying for a daily round trip pass...

I would look Downtown. Washington Ave is your best bet for a lively area with a lot going on. Its also close to your place of employment on Market with easy access to all major bus lines.
