About Us

Since 1982, originating in Des Peres, E&M Development began constructing individual upscale homes on single lots in Des Peres, Kirkwood, Webster, Glendale, Frontenac and Ladue. It was inevitable we would search for larger parcels and begin development of communities of much larger size.

Venturing where the farm land existed, we found ourselves in Jefferson County. Currently building our third subdivision, Walnut Ridge at Byrnes Mill and developing our fourth, Springbrook Farm in Barnhart, we remain encouraged by strong sales of our homes in these areas. Both staff and subcontractors are the reason E & M has shared the spotlight as one of the best builders in the St. Louis area. Office staff has remained the same for over 20 years knowing past and present customers personally by name. Our subcontractors have been just as loyal over the years and they show true pride in their workmanship. These years of construction experience and pride in our product are the factors which have contributed to an enviable success record.

Commercial Enterprise

By 1995, E & M Development began a new branch of construction – our Commercial division.
