In celebration of its founding 80 years ago, the city of Twin Oaks is getting a town square in the form of a $59 million mixed-use luxury apartment community that connects its residents to the municipality and all of its amenities. The Village of Twin Oaks debuted in November 2018 with the opening of the first 90 units. The five-story, 219-unit mixed-used apartment complex was developed by Propper Construction Services. It occupies the site of an old Schnucks Market at Big Bend and Highway 141 and features a walkable community with a restaurant and retail space, commanding views of West St. Louis County and numerous amenities. The first 90 units are open for lease with the remaining 129 units available beginning December 2018.
“The Village of Twin Oaks is designed to engage residents with surrounding neighborhoods, parks, retail and restaurants shaping the great lifestyle that defines the city of Twin Oaks” noted Chrissy Wienhoff of 2B Residential, which is leasing units. “Our residents are empty nesters, urban and suburban workers looking for great living space in a walkability environment that creates a real sense of community.”
The mixed-use apartment community includes a yet-to-be-named upscale restaurant and retail with easily walkable access to adjacent retail and restaurants at Big Bend Square, Twin Oaks’ first retail center now celebrating its 40thanniversary, and other venues. Big Bend Square hosts the well-known Nicoletti’s and 1356 Public House restaurants and retail services that include a nail salon, dental, chiropractic and vision care services, pizza parlors and tax preparation services. Fritz’s Custard, a staple of the neighborhood, and other ice cream stores as well as fast food restaurant are just a casual walk away.
“The beautiful Twin Oaks Park and its playground, recreational offerings, lake and walking paths are easily accessible,” said Wienhoff. “So is Schnuck’s Market across the street and three major banks.”
The Village of Twin Oaks also taps into a growing labor market. The 2016 U.S. Census reports a labor force of more than 56,000 alone employed in the communities of Chesterfield, Ballwin, Maryland Heights, and Fenton. The development’s location along the newly improved Highway 141 provides easy access to Chesterfield, Fenton and points east and west, using I-44 to the south or I-64 to the north.
The Village of Twin Oaks features 29 different floor plans in one-, two- and three-bedroom units, some with balconies, and includes furnished and unfurnished units. The well-appointed space features open floor plans with upscale finishes in a variety of layouts for every lifestyle need. Units feature living rooms, kitchens with slate appliances and quartz countertops, dining areas and space for full size washer and dryers.
The luxury apartment complex features a number of amenities, including:
- A rooftop swimming pool and spa including a sun deck with spectacular views of the surrounding area. The rooftop space also includes a resident lounge for entertaining with a kitchen and big-screen televisions.
- A fourth-floor fitness center with state-of-the-art exercise equipment, free weights and a yoga studio. Fitness, nutrition and yoga classes will be offered.
- A planned ground-floor upscale restaurant and retail with easily walkable access to adjacent retail and restaurants at Big Bend Square and other venues.
- An expansive ground floor lobby for entertaining guests that includes a water fountain wall and decorative granite fireplace both synchronized with color.The lobby includes a kitchen area and a cyber café with a specialty coffee bar
- An outside ground floor patio area with a fire pit amid ample green space throughout the landscaped complex

The Village of Twin Oaks also offers a number technology conveniences, including a “social wall” above resident mail boxes with four video screens detailing information to connect residents with town square community activities and other neighborhood events and provide helpful information on lifestyle needs. Building technology also includes WIFI access in all common areas, tablet-activated television and more. The building features a monitored state-of-the-art security system with secured control access entries throughout and security cameras.
Covered parking is available and pets are welcome.
The complex features 140 one-bedroom units, 75 two-bedroom units and four three-bedroom units. Resident guest suites are also available.
Zwick and Gandt Architecture, Inc. designed the apartment complex. Holland Construction Services was the general contractor.
