Multifamily Rental Housing
6 North Apartments is one of the nation’s first examples of a multifamily residential building featuring 100 percent universal design (UD). All 80 of the project’s one- and two-bedroom apartments–as well as its common spaces, coffeehouse, and live/work units–are fully usable by both disabled and nondisabled persons. The residential/mixed-use and mixed-income building is located at the corner of Laclede Avenue and Sarah Street in St. Louis’s central west end. UD features incorporated at 6 North include stepless entries, open floor plans, adjustable countertops and shelves, and high-contrast color and surface texture schemes. The three-story project contains 56 percent market-rate and 44 percent affordable units. As of 2006 it is fully leased, with eight apartments currently occupied by households that include at least one disabled member.
