I can’t believe that such a major building is now nothing more than rubble. Thankfully the major intersection of Chouteau and Grand still possesses the other half of the Pevely complex.
I went by on Monday and the fire was still smoldering. Not good. Here is an aerial view of the building before its devastating fire and destruction. I suppose it won’t be long before another enormous SLU “greenspace” replaces the historic building.
Update: Most of the Pevely complex, except for its office building, was demolished in the summer of 2012.
