Draper and Kramer Launches Construction in St. Louis

Draper and Kramer launched construction on Moda at The Hill, a new development of 225 rental residences in St. Louis’ historic The Hill neighborhood. Expected to open in late spring 2022, the four-story apartment building is part of a larger 11-acre master planned community, led by Draper and Kramer, that also includes single-family homes and a condominium building site.

“With its location in The Hill – an area that is incredibly appealing to renters and homeowners alike thanks to its rich history and strong sense of community – this site was a unique opportunity to reimagine a dormant piece of land and weave it into the neighborhood’s strong residential fabric,” said Todd Bancroft, president and CEO of Chicago-based Draper and Kramer. 

Bancroft noted Moda at The Hill is the third new-construction multifamily development Draper and Kramer has built in St. Louis, following EVO Apartments and EVO Flats, both in Richmond Heights.
