Aptitude Development to Build Student Housing at St. Louis University

ST. LOUIS, MO — Aptitude Development is set to develop The Marshall St. Louis, a 508-bed development across from St. Louis University (SLU). The Marshall St. Louis will be the 10th ground up development for Aptitude since its inception in 2014 and the seventh iteration of its Marshall brand. Construction will begin this spring and be completed in fall 2025. Amenities at the property will include a hot tub, fitness facility, gaming lounge, collaborative and individual study lounges, café areas, and fire pits. The Marshall will have two-story five-bedroom townhouses on its top floors.

"We are excited to expand our brand and bring this exciting project to the St. Louis University market. SLU has seen strong growth of its enrollment, and the supply of quality off-campus student housing has not kept pace," said Jared Hutter, Founder and Chief Snow Shoveler for Aptitude Development. "The proximity to campus and to the adjacent City Foundry development make this an incredible opportunity for both Aptitude and ultimately the students who will live there."

The City Foundry, located right next door, is a mixed-use development with retail, restaurants, office space, and residential units that locally brings offerings to the SLU area as well as the adjacent Cortex Innovation District. "The Marshall St. Louis is the next of a great lineup of projects we plan to build in the coming years," Hutter said.
