Frontenac is a wealthy inner-ring suburb of St. Louis, located in St. Louis County, Missouri. The signature landmark is Plaza Frontenac, a high-end mall featuring many prominent retailers such as Saks Fifth Avenue, Neiman Marcus, and Tiffany & Co., among others. The community name is inspired by the Château Frontenac of Quebec City. Benjamin and Lora Wood, who laid out the community’s core called Frontenac Estates, that consisted of 26 two-acre estates, had made frequent trips to Quebec.
Today, Frontenac has 3,483 residents, approximately 1,300 homes and comprises 1,944 acres (2.8 square miles). While now a suburb of Saint Louis, Frontenac has not deviated far from its rural roots, maintaining predominately one acre lots with a population density of only 1,221 per square mile (roughly ½ of the County average). With an excellent housing stock, an average household income of $119,508, easy accessibility to major thoroughfares and a per capita crime rate less then one-third the national average Frontenac remains an extremely desirable community in which to live.
