I was in St Louis this week looking for housing, and I found a great deal on a one bedroom apartment in downtwon St. Louis at Tucker and Locust (Jefferson Arms apartments). I absolutely love the building. It is a safe part of downtown and the place has a zillion amenities and it is only $525 a month including all utilities except phone and cable. My only concern is if there are any other students planning on living downtown. I know the Central West End is popular, but it is very pricey for even a studio apartment. Soulard is nice but there was a waitlist on every property I called. The south and southwest suburbs are nice but the areas are very residential and lacking a lot of potential entertainment. Please let me know if you or anyone you know has lived or will be living downtown. Thanks!
