For Sale

Colliers International (“Colliers”) is pleased to present to qualified developers, a rare historic opportunity to acquire and redevelop Das Deutsche Haus, located at 2345 Lafayette Avenue. This 60,000 square foot four-story building was originally constructed 1928 and served as the center of German-American life in St. Louis through WWII. The building was originally constructed to accommodate crowds ranging from 40 to 1,200 people, however since 1972, the property has served as a church and school. The acoustics in the large, ornately decorated auditorium are so good that the St. Louis Symphony recorded and album there, produced by Columbia Records in the 1950s. The building has been vacant for several years, however the large auditorium with its marble wainscoting and terrazzo lobby floor was recently restored by the current owner to its original condition. Structurally, the building is reported to be in excellent condition with a total replacement of the flat roof in 2008.

Das Deutsche Haus is being offered without an asking price. Tours are available by appointment and may be scheduled through Colliers. Bids are due by 3:00 PM on February 14, 2018. The following information will be considered and should be included in all offers:
