To create the next generation of great American cities through exceptional execution of projects and, in doing so, relink neighborhoods into one contiguous fabric.


Chris Stritzel, our founder, got his start in the development world by working on a series of projects, and advising others on their own, along the South 4th street corridor in Downtown St. Louis. During that time, Chris made new connections and grew his influence far beyond the small development office he worked part-time in. He, along with some friends, decided that the name of the new development company established by them all makes sense to pay homage to that job. As such, "4th Street" was born


We have a vision that has been created over the course of four years and as such, we believe that our name reflects the long-standing vision of creating the next great neighborhood, and street, in the City of St. Louis while honoring the past but keeping an eye on the future.

This attention to detail, coupled with our relentlessness for making something truly great, will take us onward to additional projects in St. Louis, and across the State of Missouri. After all, we believe that strong neighborhoods lead to strong cities and towns.

The Team

We're a team made up of visionaries from all backgrounds. We come from different cities and towns in the Midwest. We've attended and/or go to different colleges. We've studied or are studying different majors. We come from the Millennial and Gen Z generations. We believe that the best days for our preferred markets still lie ahead.

We're 4th Street and we're ready to show the world what we got.

Additional team member biographies are coming soon.
