Thanks to both Cullinan Properties’ Director of Marketing & Communication Anaise Berry and Lofts@Euclid Property Manager Stephanie Huffman for giving me this fabulous scoop. What fabulous news for the Central West End!
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
(Peoria, IL, October 2, 2018) – The Central West End’s Lofts@Euclid will soon welcome urban grocer Fields Foods to its 625 N. Euclid location. Cullinan Properties, which opened its 87-unit loft development in 2016, is pleased to announce that Fields Foods plans to open its doors for business at Lofts@Euclid later this year.
Fields Foods will occupy the remaining 8,186 square feet of commercial space on the ground floor of the building. The grocer will join the Medicine Shoppe, also located at Lofts@Euclid. Construction is expected to begin mid-October and the store plans to open this winter.
Chris Goodson, owner of Fields Foods, said the expansion into St. Louis’ Central West End is part of Fields Foods’ larger growth plan as a true urban grocer. “We are excited to be the corner store in a tremendous development like Lofts@Euclid, where residents can literally take the elevator down and shop in their pajamas,” stated Goodson. “We are equally excited to work with many others to crack the ‘Delmar Divide’ and continue our mission of turning food deserts into former food deserts.”
“We couldn’t be happier to have Fields Foods occupy this space. Fields Foods will be a great convenience for our tenants, as well as all residents of the Central West End, providing them a unique shopping experience and easy access to fresh, quality, local foods,” stated Christopher M. West, Partner and Chief Executive Officer for Cullinan Properties, Ltd. “Lofts@Euclid and Central West End residents will enjoy the fresh meats, seafood and produce, as well as delicious prepared meals and a wine bar Fields Foods has become known for,” said West.
The building that is now home to Lofts@Euclid was built in 1910, and originally served as the headquarters for the Langan & Taylor Company. It served as a furniture warehouse for many years, and has maintained many of the original architectural features.
Loft units have soaring 12-foot ceilings and many luxurious amenities including wood floors, granite countertops, large windows and a fitness center. The rooftop features a club lounge, pool table, outdoor firepit, outdoor grilling area, hot tub, sun deck, lounge chairs, a sound system, and lawn sports playing field with a variety of games equipment.
“We’re thrilled with the success of Lofts@Euclid and how it has added to the residential apartment offerings of St. Louis’ Central West End. The addition of Fields Foods to Lofts@Euclid and the Central West End is the icing on the cake and a wonderful complement to the building and the area,” stated West.
