Armour Meat Packing Plant Smokestack Deterioration

North St. Louis 016

There’s been some clear deterioration of the top of the southern smokestack at the Armour Meat Packing Plant.  Compare this photo with this one, from several years ago.  I guess it’s only a matter of time when the crumbling bricks accelerate in their dilapidation.

    Do you agree with me that the Amour Meat Packing Plant will be demolished with the highway 70 expansion/construction?

      Yes, the land has suddenly become much more profitable. See my post about the realtors’ signs going up recently.

    IS ARMOUR STILL UP? IT WOULD BE A SHAME TO SEE SOME ASPECTS OF THE BUILDING GO DOWN LIKE IN ST. LOUIS. I LIKE THE MOLDING AND LINES OF THE PLANT. THE LAST TIME I TRIED TO GET THERE IN SEPT. 2010. THE ROAD WAS BLOCKED OFF AND I DIDN’T ATTEMPT TO GO PAST WHILE ALONE. I JUST WANTED TO TAKE SOME EXTRA SHOTS.
