Streets of St. Charles
A mixed-use development delivered in record time
Brinkmann delivered the project on an aggressive timeline, allowing the owner to secure residents and collect revenue sooner than expected.
This development includes:
- 1,250-space garage
- 8-screen AMC movie theater
- 100,000-square-foot office building
- 400,000-square-foot residential tower with 309 residential units
- 60,000-square-foot retail and restaurant space
Speed up Theater Construction with Prefabrication
Despite an irregular, steeply sloping site and difficult foundation scope, Brinkmann developed an economical, design-build solution to deliver the project’s AMC theater on a record-setting fast-track schedule.
Contemporary movie theaters often feature stadium seating framed with red iron and light gauge framing. Brinkmann significantly sped up the project’s delivery using prefabricated trusses. AMC now uses this insight as a best practice for theater construction projects.
Saved time with phased approach
For the residential building, a three-phased approach allowed the owner to occupy the clubhouse, amenities, and first-phase residential areas three months prior to the final turnover of units.
