University City is one of the oldest and most culturally diverse areas of St. Louis county. Known colloquially as “U City,” the area is home to the prestigious Washington University in St. Louis, which comprises 2,312 acres of the City’s south end.

One of University City’s largest attractions is the historic Delmar Loop, an entertainment, cultural and restaurant district which has been dubbed one of the “10 Great Streets in America” by the American Planning Association.

McKnight Place is centrally located near University City, Missouri. Our gorgeous setting, located on the campus of our sister community, The Gatesworth, provides easy access to shopping, dining, places of worship, major roadways and more.
