Update: See the building further demolished here.
I know I’m supposed to be mad the final historic public housing tower in St. Louis is being demolished, but I’m not. Not everything is worthy of preservation–just the buildings that contribute to the collective beauty of St. Louis. This bland, ugly pile of peach colored bricks provided nothing to the City of St. Louis; it is an anomaly, neither embracing St. Louis’s collective history, nor moving it forward in a new direction. I’m glad this mistake, whose builders and their ideologues caused so much damage to the city, is finally being erased. Just because it’s old doesn’t make it aesthetically pleasing.
Update: The building is now completely demolished.
