Lux Living proposes a plan for 260 apartments in Maryland Heights | Local company

MARYLAND HEIGHTS — Prominent developer Lux Living has filed plans to build 260 apartments in what is now a Motel 6 in Maryland Heights.

St. Louis-based Lux ​​Living, through its subsidiary CWD Equity II LLC, plans to build a mix of studio, one-, two-, and three-bedroom units at 12330 Dorsett Road, south corner -west of Interstate 270 and Dorsett.

The development would involve the demolition of the motel. It would include a five-story apartment building with underground parking, according to a Maryland Heights planning report. The project, according to the report, does not include enough parking as required by the zoning code.

City Planning and Zoning Board must review the project at 7 p.m. on August 9 at the Maryland Heights Government Center.

The development marks Lux Living’s latest foray into suburban St. Louis; Crestwood officials last week approved the developer’s preliminary plan for apartments and retail space on Watson Road.

But Lux Living, run by brothers Victor Alston and Sid Chakraverty, has sparked controversy in the city of St. Louis, with complaints from tenants of property mismanagement and efforts to block competing development. Lux officials did not respond to a request for comment.

This latest project, however, has generated “some excitement” from the Maryland Heights Police Department, according to an internal memo to city planning staff that described the motel as nuisance property.

Police responded to 154 calls this year to the motel, which Deputy Chief Jamison White described in the memo as an eyesore “that attracts a certain type of criminal element.”

White said the calls were serious in nature and another apartment development in Maryland Heights, the apartments at Dorsett Ridge, did not receive as many police calls or as serious.

The motel is owned by Welcome Hospitality LLC, according to St. Louis County Assessor records.

Jitendra Patel, who is listed on the incorporation documents, did not respond to a request for comment.
