The Clayton Board of Aldermen on Tuesday gave the green light for a developer’s plan of a residential apartment and retail complex next to Brown Shoe Co.’s headquarters in downtown Clayton.
The $55 million project by Covington Development, called Vanguard Clayton, will include 229 units in five stories on 2.5 acres at 8500 Maryland Avenue. The project also has two floors for a 352-space parking garage. Retail space will encompass a portion of the ground floor.
Covington plans to begin construction this summer and complete the project in 2017.
A vacant two-story office building sits on the site currently.
