Central West End

Young Professionals

Central West End is ground zero for young professionals. It’s wedged between the stunning Forest Park and St. Louis University so you get incredible greenery and the energy of a great campus. It’s a foodie nirvana and there are tons of shopping boutiques, bookstores, cafes and live music throughout the neighborhood. Downtown is another great option. Short walk to work, all the big event destinations around the corner, tons of restaurants of nightlife options, and plenty of apartment/condo and loft options throughout the streets of the area.

Lafayette Square


Lafayette Square is an ideal neighborhood for singles and couples who want to skip the madness of downtown. Just a few blocks south but a world away from the condo/corporate scene, the Square is filled with quiet streets of beautiful Victorian homes and townhomes. Lafayette Park is at the center of the neighborhood. 30-acres of greenery for walking the doggo, going for a run or seeing a movie or music act at the outdoor festival space.

St. Louis is filled with great neighborhoods for families with Southamption one of the most popular. Low crime, and great single-family homes with 2 and 4 family flats line the quiet blocks that are filled with trees and flower gardens.
