Update: By January of 2020, these buildings have been demolished.
Where northbound Taylor Avenue ends at St. Louis Avenue (it picks up as a one-way southbound just to the west a couple hundred feet) sits these buildings. I could have sworn I’ve photographed these buildings before, but I can’t seem to find their picture. I wrote an article about coming up Taylor Avenue a while back at St. Louis Magazine. I know one thing: I’ve been driving by these buildings for years, and they’ve been looking worse recently.
