Update: Looking back now as of January of 2021, I quite frankly don’t know why I was so worked up about the demolition of the San Luis. It really was not an attractive building-it was actually quite mediocre and dated-so I don’t blame the Archdiocese for tearing it down. In fact, I have a great relationship with the Archdiocese nowadays, and many members of its staff help me on a regular basis. I do hope that one day that the parking lot is replaced with a higher use.
I scouted out the San Luis Apartments on Lindell on Saturday afternoon; the weather was beautiful and only interrupted by dead rechargeable batteries in my camera. These are my photos of the building, which is one of the newest buildings on the block.
The Archdiocese has purchased and plans to demolish this building for a parking lot; you be the judge of whether this building should be spared.
Update: Demolished in the summer of 2009.
