The complex, which will be located on the corner of Ludlow and Fourth streets, will breathe new life into this portion of the center city while increasing housing options. The historic 1908 “bank” building at the corner of Fourth and Ludlow streets will be renovated while the press rooms to the west and the large 1950s newspaper office building attached to the north will be demolished, as will the city-owned Schwind building further north at 25 S. Ludlow St. In their place, Missouri-based Student Suites will construct a five-story, U-shaped, 200-apartment building with a courtyard, also using the existing 93-space parking lot to the west of the building.
