St. Louis Bluesier

A few months ago I posted an article on the Syndicate Trust and Century Building in St. Louis, a building threatened by demolition. To be built in its place would be, of all things, a parking garage serving the Old Post Office renovation across the street. That sounds like half-assed preservation to me: preserving one landmark at the expense of another landmark. Preservation is full of value judgments, but this one escapes me.

Well, following a recent comment on that earlier post, it turns out the Century Building's demolition has begun, "in spite of two remaining lawsuits regarding two different components of the shady deal." Click here for more info.
