6 North Apartments

6 North Apartments represented the St. Louis area’s first large-scale application of Universal Design concepts for all apartment units. The concept of Universal Design seeks to design buildings and spaces that are often easier to use and benefit people with and without disabilities.

The 82-unit, mixed-income apartment development, located in the Central West End, includes such special design features as custom-height cabinetry, variable-height appliance sections, adjustable closet shelving, adjustable counter tops, fixture selections with special accommodations, and roll-in showers. Other building elements include two elevators, natural daylighting, and crank operated windows.
