Update: Many of the buildings below were demolished for the new National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency in 2017. The City of St. Louis cut ties with Paul McKee’s Northside in June of 2018. Others are still standing. The Reservoir Market was demolished.
My continued examination of the St. Louis Place neighborhood brought me back up north last weekend. Still trimmed with piles of snow, I saw that many buildings had suffered over the winter.
I’ve always been intrigued by this row of HUD houses; they’re quickly falling apart, which is not surprising since they were probably built cheaply.
I never noticed this building until I found it in this state, partially collapsed and sitting abandoned.
Intact, occupied houses sit right in the shadow of completely destroyed houses.
