Kingshighway at Gravois Avenue


Kingshighway, the busiest traffic artery in St. Louis, comes to a rather anticlimactic end at a group of beautiful buildings on Gravois Avenue.


But again, occupancy is good, and there is an interesting mix of building stock.


There’s this cool streamline modern storefront reskin.


With its original stainless steel or chrome doors.


This turreted building was glowing in the evening sun.



This amazing bank building below, which once stood on the northwest corner of the intersection of Kingshighway and Gravois, was torn down for the suburban style development seen today.

American Exchange National Bank, South Kingshighway and Graoivs Avenue, c. 1945, Missouri History Museum, N31042
