St. Louis MO Map
Sitting on an urban site backed by woods and a lake, The Hallmark of Creve Coeur provides a new style of living for seniors in the St. Louis area. Consisting of six levels and a garage, the 317,000-square-foot masonry veneer retirement community is located in the heart of Creve Coeur, Mo., in west St. Louis County. A member of the Brookdale Living Communities network, the 218-unit facility provides both independent and assisted living.
Masonry is a standard element in Brookdale facilities. Through the use of horizontal bands of masonry, the building appears to be a self-contained cruise ship snuggled into a lake. The horizontal bands include a limestone concrete split-face block base with a deep wine-colored brick veneer in the middle, topped by limestone-colored brick at the roofline. Leonard Masonry also installed natural limestone bands, windowsills and detailed masonry around the porte cachere. In addition to the exterior, Leonard Masonry installed granite countertops in four public restrooms, the general store, the lobby area, the buffet and completed precast pavers on the grand terrace patio.
