Formerly the International Shoe Company Building in St. Louis’s up-and-coming Washington Avenue Garment District, The Last Hotel is the latest project from Tim Dixon of FE Equus Development, LLC; Neil Freeman of Aries Capital, LLC; and Mike Qualizza of Aries affiliate Urban Development Fund. Adjacent to the City Museum, the 142-room boutique hotel is named and designed with a nod to its footwear past and features a locally-inspired restaurant, The Last Kitchen, The Last Rooftop bar and unique meeting and event spaces. It will also house a collection of shoe-making artifacts, including the size 37’s that belonged to 8-foot, 11-inch shoe company spokesperson and Guinness-named Tallest Person in History, Robert Wadlow. The $60 million project was financed through a combination of federal and state historic and new markets tax credits, along with other sources of debt and equity.
