U.S. Capital Development’s Forsyth Pointe is poised to reshape the Clayton skyline in short order. Set to bring two new Class A office towers to Downtown Clayton, Forsyth Pointe appears to be near finished with foundation work and site preparation. Steel has started appearing on site and both tower cranes are ready to go.
For those unfamiliar with the project, the West tower will rise 14 stories above ground and the East tower 16 stories. The two mid-rises will be connected by a parking podium with artwork displays on each corner and an outdoor patio between the buildings. As a concession and agreement with Clayton officials, the outdoor section will be open to the public occasionally for events.
The development is going to activate an important section of Downtown Clayton with more retail fronting Forysth Blvd. as well, with plans pointing to various cafe and outdoor dining applications. The Western edge of Clayton has not received as much development as the East end, with Centene’s headquarters dominating the skyline in recent years and the Sheraton redevelopment into a Le Meridian on track to finish this year. While the Western edge has seen a new apartment midrise with 212 Clayton completing a couple years ago, this development will add significant density and likely be visible to those entering the city from 170 South and 64/40.
