When I'm not traveling, I love being able to explore the city I call home. Last weekend, I had the opportunity to join 4101 Laclede on a guided tour of the Central West End Area. Central West End is a bustling, vibrant and historic neighborhood in Saint Louis, featuring a number of unique dining, shopping and residential areas. It was named a top ten neighborhood in the USA by the American Planning Association! 

I'm happy to announce that 4101 Laclede will begin construction THIS December! It will be a 54 residential unit, luxury condominium complex, ranging from one bedrooms to penthouses. I especially love how each residential unit will have access to outdoor space, whether it be a balcony or full terrace. Living in STL with 4 different seasons, it is an amazing opportunity to indulge in the outdoor living space while also having a beautiful, modern home. From walk-in closets to custom-bathrooms, 4101 Laclede is going to be one of the most innovative projects happening in my city!

We began our tour with a group brunch at Retreat Gastropub. The breakfast was AMAZING. All this time, I've lived in this city and have not had a chance to experience this brunch spot. Living in 4101 Laclede next door, you would definitely be able to dine here often. 

Next, we continued on our tour in super cute golf carts around the CWE neighboorhood area! The weather was quite perfect that morning for an outdoor ride. We stopped at the World Chess Hall of Fame, a famous museum in the city of STL, home to numerous antiques (I'm a huge history lover!). 

Afterwards, we stopped by Kit & Ace to browse their newest cashmere collection (and to play some Mario Cart during their happy hour shopping times!).

Later, we visited Centro, a super chic furniture destination, featuring unique and modern collectable pieces. We played a mini-scavenger hunt. It's such an inspiring place to be in.

Overall, I'm very excited to see the 4101 Laclede project in development, as I believe it'll be a great asset to the city of Saint Louis. While it's amazing to travel, I love being able to come back to the city I call home and be a tourist in my own hometown. 

 Are you planning on traveling to St. Louis anytime soon? Let me know in the comments and I'd love to provide more tips for touring the city and Central West End Area! 

Much love,
