Nestled in the Central West End, the Milton stays true to its historic charm while providing modern, innovative and upscale apartments. Once a single-story warehouse, the Milton now towers ve stories above Olive Street and houses 29 contemporary living spaces with one- and two-bedroom apartments as well as two two-bedroom penthouses.
“The Milton is a great project — my favorite in a 45-year real estate career,” Pete Rothschild, owner and president of Rothschild Development Ltd., said in a press release. “It incorporates new, multi-story construction within the perimeter façade of a turn-of-the-century tobacco warehouse. This is the first development of its kind in St. Louis, and I think you’ll like it as much as I do.”
With renovations beginning in the spring of 2016, Red Brick Management has ensured the architecture of the building preserves historic elements of its original design while channeling contemporary urban living with a modern four-story rooftop addition, the release states.
“This is exciting for Olive [Street] and this neighborhood,” says Angie Hickey, president of property management for Red Brick Management, a subsidiary of Rothschild Development Ltd. “The opening of the Milton encourages continued revitalization and restoration of the Central West End north area for both businesses and developers. We are excited to partner with current neighbors on Olive to bring new life to the neighborhood.”
For those looking for something more upscale and larger than a typical apartment, there are two penthouses on the fifth floor, each of which are 1,400 to 1,450 square feet. They each have private rooftop decks, an amazing wall of windows with views of downtown and Clayton, as well as private storage and their own private storage.
The Milton’s amenities include a garage, a furnished rooftop terrace on the second floor, a deck or patio with all units, bike storage in the building, secured entry with code and fob access for each resident, wooden floors, granite countertops, designer cabinets, in-unit washer and dryer, large rooms and ample closet space. The rooftop terrace may even be rented out for private parties.
“We may not have fitness centers like some larger projects may have, but the Milton offers more of a boutique-style feeling,” Hickey says. “When people come to a Red Brick property, we stick with the character and charm of the building while providing modern amenities. This has taken a cool, historic building and repurposed it well. There is a lot of development working its way [west] from Boyle [Avenue].This building helps solidify the growth and development of this part of the neighborhood … and ties in the [old with the new].”
Two-bedroom apartments start at $1,650, and the largest two-bedroom penthouse is $2,900. One-bedroom apartments range from $1,195 to $1,375.
In addition to living spaces, the Milton has 3,000 square feet of commercial space on the first floor that would be great for a creative office or art gallery. “There are cool brick accents in the space; it is very urban with a fun, creative loft feel and great light,” Hickey adds. “It has two garage doors that open, so it would be really great for any business that opens up and invites people in.”
Although the commercial space is currently set up to house one business, Hickey says, it could easily hold two businesses.
