Grant School

I could have sworn I’d photographed Grant School before, and I may have, but I can’t find it now.

Nevertheless, it’s a great example of first, a pre-Ittner/Milligan school in St. Louis, and secondly, a perfect example of how an old school building can be renovated into apartments.

Tower Grove East is a stable neighborhood but has a declining public school population, so consequently, and with mixed emotions, does not need so many educational facilities. Adaptive reuse is the next best thing after it continuing to be a school.
