More About The Central West End

Located just west of downtown, the pedestrian-friendly Central West End is nestled between Forest Park and the Saint Louis University campus. Nearby are the Washington University School of Medicine, the BJC Healthcare campus, the St. Louis College of Pharmacy and the Cortex Innovation Community, a national leader in tech startups.

The Central West End’s main commercial district runs along Euclid Avenue and stretches from Forest Park Parkway on the south to Delmar Boulevard on the north. Many new residential and commercial developments have appeared along Euclid Avenue in recent years, and the building boom shows no signs of slowing down. These modern developments mix with grand, turn of the 20th-century homes and multi-family residences, to create a unique atmosphere in the neighborhood – which first grew in popularity during the coming of the 1904 World’s Fair, held in the adjacent Forest Park. Some residential areas of the Central West End are included in the National Register of Historic Places.

The Cathedral Basilica, built between 1907 and 1914, is known for its beautiful interior mosaics, more than 41 million pieces of glass and one of the largest collections in the western hemisphere. A tour here is not to be missed.
