I live in Tower Grove East and this project is just a few blocks from house. I am so excited to see this kind of development in the area: adaptation vs. demolition. Formerly this was roughly an 800 sq ft 1 bedroom, 1 bathroom bungalow. The new owner is converting it to a 3 bedroom, 1.5 bath home with room to expand in the lower level. The first floor will now be devoted to public space, living room, dining room, kitchen and half bath. The second floor will have a master bedroom and two additional bedrooms. In keeping with the architectural style of the neighborhood, rather than wrapping the second story in vinyl, the developer has chosen high quality architectural shingles (at about triple the cost of the average architectural shingle) to make the addition look as much like a slate roof as possible.
