Located in the historic Washington Avenue Loft District, The Annex Lofts is in the heart of St. Louis’ vibrant urban renaissance. Just minutes from leading sports and entertainment venues, downtown business district employers, and a mix of trendy restaurants and nightlife, The Annex Lofts is close to everything.
Originally the building was an Ely Walker Dry Goods Warehouse. It was later purchased by the General American Life Insurance Company (their former headquarters is now the Terra Cotta Lofts) and it became “the annex?to the General American Life Building. In 1961 the original façade was removed and the limestone and black granite façade was added to modernize the building. The lower floors were used as additional office space and the upper floors were used for storage.
The Annex Lofts are authentic residential loft spaces combining the texture and authenticity of the circa 1917 Ely & Walker Dry Goods Building with modern interior design. Each loft home features a desirable mix of original architectural elements and new modern amenities. Added value comes from secured garage parking, a complete kitchen appliance package and upscale professionally-designed common spaces including a fitness center and patio/garden area.
