Live your best St. Louis life at Encore at Forest Park, brand new luxury apartments offering a ton of bang for your buck.

When Cortona at Forest Park, the building next to Encore, was immensely successful after its construction in 2014, its developers jumped at the opportunity to go bigger and better.

“The residents love the community that we have built at Cortona so much that we wanted to build upon that success and elevate the lifestyle even more at Encore,” says Nicole Powell, Assistant Community Manager for Encore at Forest Park. “Through Cortona, we learned a lot of lessons about what people look for in an apartment. We’ve made some enhancements here and there to make Encore more luxurious but with the same centralized community spaces to meet and see other residents.”

Community spaces at Encore include a resort-style pool with cabanas, grills, a bar and outdoor gaming area; a sky lounge; a fully equipped fitness center; a game room with a TRX studio and ping pong; a self-service coffee bar in the lobby; and an on-site dog park. Other amenities include high-end finishes; garage parking; around-the-clock concierge service; building-wide WiFi service; bike storage with repair stand; and much more.

“We want to promote a well-balanced lifestyle,” she says. “We help our residents get access to all the best things life has to offer all within our grounds. Our sky lounge overlooking the courtyard is a great indoor-outdoor space with a kitchen and TV as well as fire pits and cool seating.”

If all that luxury isn’t enough to convince you to move in, perhaps the award-winning staff is.

“The team at Encore at Forest Park has won many awards from the St. Louis Apartment Association, including 2018 Assistant Property Manager of the Year and Property of the Year (for Cortona at Forest Park),” says Mark Milford, Associate Vice President of 2B Residential, the company that manages Encore and Cortona. “We’re proud to be ranked in the top 1 percent nationally for our reputation, by an independent research firm J Turner Reserach. Plus, our service and maintenance team are very responsive and attentive to our residents’ needs. They get things taken care of quickly with great attention to detail.”

Encore’s location just south of Forest Park, at 5700 Highlands Plaza Drive, is pretty stellar too, with convenient access to both Interstate Highways 44 and 64/40.

“We’re right in the heart of everything: Forest Park, the Central West End, Maplewood, the Hill, the Grove and Dogtown,” Milford says. “Whether you’re a native or a transplant, people love being near the cultural institutions like the Muny, the [Saint Louis] Science Center and the [Missouri] History Museum.”

Although Encore has nearly 250 units, from studios to three-bedrooms, it’s leasing up fast, so act quickly before it’s too late. For more information, visit or call 314-833-6100. You can also connect with Encore at Forest Park through its Facebook and Instagram pages. M
