Construction started on senior housing in Richmond Heights


The single-story apartments south of St. Mary’s Hospital on Bellevue Avenue have been demolished, and construction has started on a four-story, 91,000-square-foot assisted living facility to be called Allegro Senior Living.

The facility will include 87 units, with the fourth floor dedicated to memory care. Rent is  to begin at $4,000 for a studio apartment, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reported.

The project is scheduled to begin accepting residents in the fall of 2018. Allegro expects to have a staff of 80, according to the St. Louis Business Journal.


  1. The Brentwood Fire Dept. Is going to be very busy with this new housing. Living by that new ugly building called Stonecrest they are there at least three times a week.

  2. I can’t wait for the day when Bellevue is construction free from Clayton to Manchester. Seems like it will be a while longer.
