City Foundry STL

St. Louis, MO

Food Hall & Retail Complex

The 100 year old foundry building was transformed into a large urban mixed use development, which became the first of it’s kind in St. Louis. PayneCrest worked with the engineer of record to make the design more constructible. We were successful in creating new systems throughout an aging building that would allow us to maintain historical features. By maintaining these features the building would stay on it’s listing on the national register of historic places. The project was named a 2020 AGC Keystone Award finalist.

  • Our team updated all data and electrical utilities, including tapping into the existing electrical to restore the historic features of the 15-acre complex.
  • The PayneCrest engineering team focused on finding modifications & adjustments within the BIM model early in the planning phase to smooth the installation process.
  • Innovativeness from our prefabrication shop and Trimble technology played a key role in creating the underground structures that ultimately accelerated the schedule on this project.
  • PayneCrest provided electric and lighting for the food halls inside the existing building.
  • With the use of our on-site mobile safety carts we were able to meet and exceed all safety guidelines set forth by the owner.


“Paynecrest diligently helped make the City Foundry project a reality through the multi-year preconstruction effort. They brought innovative solutions, value engineering ideas, and a wealth of knowledge and expertise to the complex project. This approach carried on throughout the project making it a success for all parties involved.”
