Davis Street Land Company and M+H Architects have completed a new open air retail center in Lake Saint Louis called “The Meadows” located near Lake Saint Louis Boulevard and I-64. At the heart of The Meadows is its pedestrian plaza where you can find areas for sitting and enjoying a break. A plaza clock tower is a key focal element for the entire development and adjacent to this is an entertainment area with pergola that serves as a band stand.
The architecture of the center is a classic, prairie style design, utilizing premium materials and quality workmanship. On the southern portion of the site is a large water feature which amplifies an appealing exterior dining experience at the piers, exterior patios, and decks of the restaurants located in that area. The Meadows has successfully attracted some of the country’s leading specialty retailers and restaurants to meet the growing demand in St. Charles County.
The Meadows included the painstaking application of distinctive masonry finishes to a variety of the development’s features, including streetscapes, outdoor gathering areas and upscale retail stores. The finishes required the installation of 280 tons of rubble stone, 580,000 modular face brick, 30,000 cubic feet of cut Indiana limestone, cast stone for medallions and address blocks, and architectural precast concrete for planter urns. In addition, 175,000 concrete masonry units were used.
We are very happy with the outcome of the project. M+H Architect’s design and technical staff have provided us with personal attention and unsurpassed responsiveness while answering our tenant’s needs.
