    Did the Art Deco apartments demolished for the new Walgreen's and Dobb's at Chippewa and Hampton ever make the list?

    A wow on the Shriners/CID buildings. Those are so beautiful. Washington University is so powerful ...

    Ya know, I'd like to see a list of the most frequent owners of the most endangered buildings over the last few years. Who's the biggest offender in the St Louis region?

    Excellent selection of 1930 Saint Louis to represent McKee's holdings. It's one of the finest buildings under his ownership.

    Barbara,

    I can give a simple answer: large, "respectable" and "pillars of the community" seem to me to be the greatest offenders.

    Well, considering the City pols penchant for going down...er, bending over backwards for the wealthy and powerful, we might as well kiss the Shriner's and CID buildings goodbye.
