The Railway Exchange Building Famous-Barr Built: 1914
Architect: Mauran, Russell & Crowell
277 ft. 21 floors
Status: Still in use as office space and the Famous-Barr store.

It is perhaps the most lavishly ornamented building in the entire city.
Built as the Railway Exchange, it is now named for Famous-Barr, its principal occupant.
The building is now connected to the St. Louis Center mall, which has unfortunately suffered severely declining business in the last few years.
