The Lofts of Washington University, a new $80-million mixed-use development, brings green architecture, new residents and, at last, a grocery store to the Delmar Loop. On Saturday, Aug. 23, some 400 Washington University in St. Louis undergraduates will move into The Lofts’ 167 fully furnished three-bedroom, two-bedroom and efficiency apartments.
An anchor tenant in WUSTL’s new Delmar Loop development will fulfill a long-time need along Delmar Boulevard: a grocery store, operated by Global Foods Market. The $80 million retail and student apartment complex under construction will be called The Lofts of Washington University. Another tenant will be the Peacock Loop Diner, operated by Joe Edwards, owner of Blueberry Hill.
Joe Edwards, owner of such Delmar Loop attractions as Blueberry Hill and The Pageant, announced today plans to open the Peacock Loop Diner, a new 24-hour restaurant, in Washington University’s Loop development. The restaurant will be located at 6261 Delmar Blvd. near Eastgate Avenue and is slated to open in August 2014.
