A perennially popular family neighborhood, St. Louis Heights has continued to reinvent itself over the years with ongoing remodeling and rebuilding in most parts of the ridgeline subdivision. The residential subdivision has paralleled loosely the development of the educational component of the St. Louis neighborhood, which is based primarily on the large campus fronting Waialae Avenue.

Many of the streets in St. Louis Heights have been named for educators and religious leaders associated with the school from its earliest days. Homeworks Construction is currently completing four projects in various parts of St. Louis Heights — all are multigenerational rebuilds with accessory dwelling units (ADUs). The homes, originally built by family members, have been passed down through generations. Properties have been reconfigured to make maximum use of space and to capitalize on views. The ADUs add space for family living, recreation and parking.


According to Homeworks Construction president and chief of field operations Sylvio Boucher, who demolished the original structure, the home currently nearing completion includes two bedrooms, a full bathroom, and laundry room on the first floor, as well as a large kitchen, dining room, large den and a half bath. The ADU includes two bedrooms, a full bathroom and laundry room on the first floor; upstairs are two more bedrooms, large family room and TV room. The master bedroom over the ADU opens to a 225-square-foot covered lanai with a view of the ocean and Diamond Head. Fronting the property is a two-car garage and three additional parking spaces.
