St. Louis Area Needs 12,325 New Apartments by 2030 to Keep Pace with Demand 

Growth is Due to Aging Population, Immigration, Declining Home Purchases

WASHINGTON, D.C., June 12, 2017 – An aging population, international immigration and fewer home purchases are resulting in an increased need for new apartments. The St. Louis metro area is expected to need 12,325 new apartments by 2030 to keep up with local demand, according to a new study commissioned by the National Multifamily Housing Council (NMHC) and the National Apartment Association (NAA). The study found that, nationally, 4.6 million new apartments are needed by 2030. This growth would increase economic activity in St. Louis and across the country.

Upcoming Event

Business Networking Expo (AKA, Reverse Tradeshow)
Wednesday, July 19 from 4 - 7:00 pm

The SLAA Product and Service Council will be hosting the Best of St. Louis Networking Expo. This event works similar to a trade show, with one difference – owner/management representatives are at their company table, and vendors have the opportunity to schedule a five (5) minute face-to-face meeting with the company representative(s).  Over a two-hour period, vendors will have the opportunity to visit approximately 5 – 10  companies. This event is a highly effective association business-networking event.

Event Highlights


SLAA hosted another packed house!  Over 600 members and guests attended this year’s Rising Star Awards Banquet at Sheraton Westport Lakeside Chalet.  Over 100 nominees in twenty-seven categories were honored. 

As you know, an event of this magnitude takes many months to plan and execute.

It begins with the companies that took the time to nominate their team members for their outstanding performance.  For that we thank you! 

Then volunteer judges from Denver, Tulsa, Kansas City and our home town, personally interviewed each nominee and toured thirteen properties.  We are very grateful to Kimi Medler, Kim Richardson, Stacy Brady, Nicole Yates, Elizabeth Reed, Carole Ballard, Stephanie Parson, Michael Fazio and Wendi McClanahan.  We thank them for assisting with the judging process.  

Another group of dedicated volunteers are the Rising Star committee members; Carla Runner, Dominium; Jodi Grade, Conservice; Charisse Earhart, United Services Disaster Restoration; Jenn Heuer, Trilogy Residential Management; Jamie Bryan, Monarch Investment; Jennifer McMaster, Apartments.com Network; Lori Welsh, CORT; Lindsy Harvey; Mills Properties; Dena Payne, Banner Real Estate Group; Nichole Viehmann, The Lipton Group; and Brad Burt, McConnell & Associates.   Special thanks to Dave Elliott and Jerry Teson with Countryside Flooring, who entertain and chauffeur our out-of-town judges to and from property of the year nominees every single year!  Chrissy Wienhoff with 2B Residential creates an outstanding nominee and sponsor presentation each year.  Pam Hoth with Banner Real Estate Group crafts our beautiful centerpieces each year.  We appreciate everyone’s enthusiasm and dedication to the success of this event. 

Blake Whiteside, our emcee kept the event moving along comfortably, with his upbeat and engaging announcement of our Rising Star winners!    Brock Elmore with Watchtower Security entertained our guests, by rockin’ and rollin’ fun tunes as our winners accepted their award.  Brock and Blake are Rock Stars! 

Lastly, we thank all the companies that sponsored this event!   It is because of your support and generosity that we are able to honor the accomplishments of our multifamily professionals. 

Thank you for attending our festivities tonight!  We hope you enjoy yourself.
