The Eden Lofts building has a long and proud history. Originally built in 1896 for the Eden Publishing Company. Within weeks after occupying the property the Great Cylone of 1896 damaged significantly the structure and its contents. Without hesitation the owners quickly repaired the damage and moved forward without missing a beat.
In 1929 just before the Great Depression, the architectural firm of Hoener, Boehm and Froese were commissioned to design the building right next to the original Eden building. This five story buidling, named the Synod Building, illustrates the beautiful Art Deco style of the time.
The owners moved their administrative and executive offices to the new Synod building where they and the company remained until 1978 when the company shut its doors for good. Later renovated into what is now the Eden Lofts, the building was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1986.
Many residents in the building are able to view the St. Louis Wheel at night with its various color changes from their loft. Living at Eden means residents are a short walk to Union Station with the St. Louis Aquarium and so much more. From the building, residents are a short drive to Blues, Cardinals and the new St. Louis City Soccer Club. Yes, location means everything!
