Most Enhanced and Clayton 155

I had never seen this building before, but it’s worth checking out; it turns out my colleague Toby Weiss had already discovered it years ago. As more of Clayton is demolished, this building is a fitting tribute to what could be.

    My pediatric dentist, Dr. Margaret Tolson, had her office in this building. My parents took me and my sister to her from the late ’50s to the mid-’60s. Her husband, who I believe was a medical doctor, had the adjacent office and they shared a waiting room.

    Is it now slated for renovation (or demolition)? It certainly seems – umm – “underutilized.”
    The images in the windows threw me for a bit; I thought they were, first, views of patrons dining inside and then second, reflections of patrons dining outside.
    Then I did a Homer Simpson D’oh…

    It makes me sad to see it unoccupied… it used to be a thriving strip! There was a fabulous florist there…

    Many Clayton businesses have been moving because of the lack of parking in Clayton combined with the high rent. Once Colonial Place (next to Ladue Crossing) finally opened back up (not sure why that took SO long), many Clayton businesses moved in there.
