A mixed-use, town square development delivered in record time
Streets of St. Charles is a town square environment where residents and visitors alike can enjoy shopping, living, modern offices, dining, hospitality, and entertaining amenities.
Brinkmann delivered the project on an aggressive timeline, allowing the owner to secure residents and collect revenue sooner than expected.
This mixed-use development included a number of amenities:
- 450,000-square-foot, 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
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. This foresight allowed the client to start collecting revenue prior to the overall completion of the building.
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.
