Central West End Demolitions Continue

Update: Replaced at the northwest corner of Euclid and Forest Park Avenue by a large Washington University Medical School office tower.

The Ettrick Apartments are well on their way to becoming a hole in the ground.

A large black tarp attempts to keep dust from entering the nearby parking garage.

Update: The Schoenberg Nurses Residence Hall was demolished for a staging area for nearby construction at the Barnes-Jewish Medical Center.

The Schoenberg Nurses Residence Hall, a small building, sits weeks from demolition presumably. Kept intact for the Greek Fest, its days are numbered.

The St. Louis College of Pharmacy residence hall is under demolition as well.

Perhaps one could argue that the demolition of buildings are new ones (one day, for a couple of the sites) could be seen as a sign of prosperity in the Central West End, what is being built in the demolished buildings’ place does not possess the same charm as what was there before.
