Looks like things are starting to happen at the Truman Building at 916 Olive. A sign advertising The Boxing Gym is posted in the front window. According to the building’s web site, it will be taking the 4,000 sf basement space, while Downtown Urgent Care will be located in the 4,000 sf first floor space. Both are slated to open in winter 2008.
Dr. Sonny Saggar is investing $2 million into renovating the building, which is being marketed as the Downtown Health and Wellness Center. Dr. Saggar hopes to lure complementary users, such as medical and dental practices. Available spaces in the building include:
3,000 sf first floor mezzanine
1,522 and 1,500 sf spaces on the second floor
2,526 and 1,970 sf on the third floor
5,200 sf on the fourth floor
5,000 sf rooftop space
Meanwhile, the City Smiles dental office has opened on the first floor of the Spool Thread Building at 1113 Locust and is accepting new patients for general, cosmetic and implant dentistry. City Smiles is taking reservations on Mondays from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m., Tuesdays from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Thursdays from 7 a.m. to 4 p.m. and can be reached at (314) 375-5353. www.citysmilesstlouis.com.
There also appears to be a veterinary clinic about to open in the former Gus's/Creepy Crawl building on Tucker.
It’s great to have these services available to downtown residents and office workers.
