Update: 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.
This building has changed little since I photographed it above several years ago. It looked like it received new windows recently, but then the owner seems to have given up.
Last weekend, I discovered above and below that someone had transformed the vacant building into the Slumlord Bar and Grille. Just look at that brickwork on the front of the building.
I don’t know how political the graffiti below was intended to be, but its slightly vulgar message rings true. Get something done or get out of the way.
