Clayton, developer announce plans for new hotel in former police headquarters

Clayton officials are collaborating with a Montana developer and local construction company to transform the former Clayton Police headquarters at 227 S. Central Ave. into a new hotel.

In new plans filed with the city of Clayton Wednesday, developer HomeBase and St. Louis-based L. Keeley Construction are behind an initiative to bring a 12-story, 218-room AC Hotel by Marriott to downtown Clayton.

HomeBase bought the property from the city for $2.37 million in September. The project is expected to cost $43 million, according to the plans.

Clayton’s Plan Commission and Architectural Review Board will conduct a conceptual review of the mixed-use development Feb. 20, according to the city’s pending applications page.

Plans for the new project call for a fitness center, meeting space and rooftop patio and bar, which will be open to the public. A separate express elevator will take visitors directly to the rooftop amenities.

The former Clayton Police headquarters building has been vacant since the department moved to 10 S.Brentwood Blvd. in 2013.
