Mid-Century Modernism: Demolition Alert!

San Luis Apartments
4483 Lindell Blvd. (at Taylor)
St. Louis, Missouri - Central West End
Built: 1962
Demolisher: St. Louis Archdiocese
Date: Permit not received yet; demolition date to be decided
Future use: surface parking lot

Thanks to JivecitySTL of the Urban St. Louis forums for the pictures below!

If you'd like to contact the Archdiocese of St. Louis, you may do so here.

If you'd like to contact 28th Ward Alderman Lyda Krewson to express your feelings on this demolition, you may do so here.

Please, if you feel that the loss of this presence on the Lindell streetscape for a surface parking lot is not the future you'd like to see for the Central West End, express your discontent. It's the only way that anything will change.

Also, there will be a hearing on the issue on March 29, 2008 (9 a.m.) at the Schlafly Library on Euclid and Lindell.
