Residents, shoppers and diners alike are in the lap of luxury at The Shoppes at the Crescent. The classy, urban upscale retail and residential condominium community features high-end condos with stunning views of the St. Louis skyline, and exclusive amenities, from posh boutiques and premiere restaurants to a fitness center and lush gardens—all within walking distance of downtown Clayton.
Since its beginning in the 1870s, the Central West End (CWE) has served as a sought-after St. Louis residential district. T.S. Eliot, Tennessee Williams, Kate Chopin and William Burroughs all called the area home at one point. Its location near the 1904 World’s Fair added to its prestige. These days, the CWE is an urban oasis full of residential areas, restaurants, bars, art, entertainment, and—of course—shopping. Landmarks include The Chase Park Plaza towers over the neighborhood and acts as the hotel of choice for VIP and celebrity-types like George Clooney. In the heart of the area, located in front of the World Chess Hall of Fame, sits the World’s Largest Chess Piece. And just a block past the core of the CWE is the stunning Cathedral Basilica of Saint Louis.
