Washington between 10th & 11th

(Washington Building)


Built: 1901
Architect: Mauran, Russell & Garden

7 floors  One of the first St. Louis buildings to have its front facade entirely clad in terra cotta.
"The building is of the modern, slow burning construction. It rises to a height of seven stories and is divided into two stores by a 40-foot court in the center, which is reached by a drive from Lucas Avenue. The seven-story mercantile building at 1015 Washington Avenue is significant not only as a fine example of turn of the century commercial architecture but also as an exemplar of the local crafts and trades which helped propel St. Louis´ late nineteenth century growth into a major metropolis."

Renaissance Grand hotel

800 Washington

Washington between 8th & 9th

Built: 1917

Architect: George C. Post

256 ft.
The Statler chain had been gone for ten years in 1966, when the building was renamed the Gateway Hotel. It limped along for two decades, closed for renovations in 1987, and never reopened. With the opening of the Convention Center right across the street, and developers clambering for more hotel room space, the Gateway seemed a blatantly obvious choice for renovation. Yet it sat vacant for years, subject to decay and several fires... until now. This was the first air-conditioned hotel in the United States.

- The Renaissance Grand Hotel consists of the original Statler Hotel tower and a 23-floor addition, which was constructed in 2001-2002. The HRI Group developed the property, which opened in February 2003. 
- The new tower addition stands on the site formerly occupied by the Lindell Building. 
- It was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1982.

The Old May Company Department Store is actually a complex of several structures, beginning with the Bradford-Martin Building.
The complex of buildings on Washington and Lucas Avenues now commonly known as "The Dollar Store" was built in stages between circa 1875 and 1905. In spite of years of neglect, the complex--first joined under one roof by the May Company in 1905--is of preeminent architectural significance as the only remaining Commercial Palace from the years of St. Louis´ most dramatic growth. Although the basic building material in the complex is brick, the elevations on Washington Avenue are Bedford stone (painted) and cast iron. Stories range from five to seven but the overall height of the complex is approximately 80 feet throughout. The monumental entrance bay from 1898 enhanced the Washington Avenue façade; the first story store-front modifications are non-contributing.

It was built in 1875 by Francis D. Lee and Thomas B. Annan for Bradford Bros. and Lindsley & Orr, and was occupied by D. Crawford & Co. from around 1897 to 1903, when Crawford was bought out by the May Company.

On its east side stood the 1876 Finney Building . In 1898, they were combined into a new mercantile "palace" by St. Louis architects Weber and Groves who also added the monumental glass-domed entrance.

David May of the May Company, owner of the largest retail company in the U.S., purchased the building in 1904 and enlarged it by incorporating the Meyer-Bannerman building (1888) behind it and adding an addition. After the May Company moved to the Railway Exchange building in 1913, the building was subdivided

The bus terminal portion was demolished when the TWA Dome was built for the Rams next door.

Olive between 8th & 9th

The Old Post Office
Built: 1873-1884
Architect: Alfred B. Mullet
The Old Post Office is among the City´s and the nation´s architectural masterpieces. It and Mullett´s Executive Office Building in Washington, D.C. are probably the best examples of the Second Empire building style ever constructed in the United States.
In the years following the Civil War, the federal government´s headquarters building in St. Louis was the Old Custom House at Third and Olive Streets. It had become inadequate for its many uses. Erection of a larger replacement was authorized by Congress in 1869 and plans were prepared by government architect Alfred B. Mullett. The proposed location was criticized as being too far west from the business district of that time.

Excavation began in 1873 but a number of construction problems were encountered, including quick sand. Actual construction, therefore, did not begin until 1873. A prime reason for the site selection was its situation along the tunnel from Eads Bridge to the Union Depot. Access to the tunnel from the post office for direct dispatch of mail did not prove feasible because of seepage of smoke from the trains into the building, and the entry portal had to be sealed.

Construction proceeded slowly because of the great care required to make the structure completely fireproof and secure. It was built like a fortress with a 28-foot deep moat around the building and sliding iron shutters on its windows. These precautions were taken because of the presence of a subtreasury branch and as a guard against possible mob violence, a reminder from the recent Civil War.
No expense was spared on either the ornamental exterior or lavish interior of the great structure, which was finally completed in 1884 after 10 years of construction. Its cost of nearly $6 million made it the City´s most expensive building for some years to come.
In later years, various federal functions were relocated elsewhere, beginning with removal of the main post office to 18th and Clark in 1912. Two years later, the Weather Bureau vacated its roost in the cupola atop the Mansard dome for a perch on the roof of the Railway Exchange Building. Most of the federal courts and offices remained in the Old Post Office until 1935, when the new government building at 12th and Market was occupied.
The old structure has been vacant since 1975, when a postal branch was relocated across the street. For many years the old building was the object of much speculation regarding its fate, after a government announcement of possible demolition in 1964. This brought a concerted effort by preservationists to save it, with various proposals for its reuse. Its condition led to the passage of a bill by Congress authorizing private use of unused federal buildings.


Board of Education Building

Architect: Issac S. Taylor

                                                                                                                                                                          117 ft. 7 floors 

                                                                                                                                       Status: vacant and for sale since the Board moved out in 2000.
Originally built as the city's public library, till the present building further west was constructed in the 1910s. The Board of Education departed for financial reasons, citing the cost of installing modern elevators (the current ones still require an operator!) and central air conditioning -- after having the windows and portions of the facade cleaned and painted only three months earlier.

The building went up for sale around 2000. After a few vacant years, it is currently (early 2005) being renovated as condominiums.

Original building, 1820s
Henry Singleton, 1839-1845
Robert S. Mitchell, 1852-1862
William Rumbold, 1860-1864 
Status: Restored and in use as a National Park Service museum 
Henry Singleton´s design for the courthouse was approved in July, 1839. The rotunda and west wing were opened in 1845. Between 1851 and 1862, the remaining wings and the dome were completed. The building is in the plan of a Greek cross. The rotunda has four circular galleries and is topped by a cast iron dome of Renaissance form. William Rumbold designed the dome, which predates the U.S. Capitol dome by two years. There is debate as to whether or not the construction of the Capitol dome was inspired by the St. Louis dome. Besides his work on the dome, Rumbold altered the double spiraled staircase and replaced the four large stone pillars which supported the balcony with the present iron columns. The murals in the dome were done by Karl Wimar in 1862, and by E. Hore Miragoli. Those by Wimar are: Laclede selecting the site for St. Louis; DeSoto Discovering the Mississippi River; the British-Indian Attack on St. Louis, 1780; and Cochetopa Pass, Rocky Mountains. The latter two murals were retouched in the early twentieth century. The courthouse functioned as such from 1845 to 1930. Various cases and debates occurred within its walls. It was the site of the famous Dred Scott case which ran from 1847 to 1857. Senator Thomas Hart Benton spoke there in 1849 at the Railway Convention, promoting the Transcontinental Railway. Ulysses Grant freed his one slave there. And during the 1870´s, it was the seat of the movement attempting to move the nation´s capital to St. Louis.

Old Cathedral

213 Walnut

Memorial & Walnut

Basilica of Saint Louis, King of France (Old Cathedral)
Built: 1831 Architect: Joseph C. Laveille & George Morton
Renovated: 1963 Murphy & Mackey
The oldest cathedral west of the Mississippi.
This is the forth church on this site and one of the few buildings to survive the great fire of 1848.  At the time of the founding of St. Louis by Pierre Laclede in 1764, the present site of the Old Cathedral was dedicated for church purposes. Originally the site included the entire block, with a cemetery on its northern half. Three churches preceded the present structure on the site. Log structures were completed in 1770 and 1776 and a brick building was constructed in 1819.
  In 1812, Father Louis William DuBourg was appointed bishop of St. Louis. One of his first priorities was the construction of the town´s first cathedral.
In 1826, DuBourg resigned and was succeeded as bishop by his assistant, Joseph Rosati. As the brick cathedral had never been fully completed, Bishop Rosati reached a decision to build a new and larger church. It was completed in 1834 with ceremonies attended by prelates from throughout the diocese.
The facade and portico of the edifice have inscriptions in Latin, with the name of God in Hebrew upon its pediment. On the interior were paintings from France, some of which are still in place today.
A special distinction was granted to the Cathedral in 1841 by Pope Gregory XVI. This was an indulgence which is only granted elsewhere to pilgrims who visit the seven basilicas of Rome.
  Eventually the need for a much grander Cathedral became apparent and, in 1914, the title passed to the great new structure on Lindell Boulevard. At that time, the Old Cathedral became known officially as the Church of St. Louis of France. The surroundings of the old church became increasingly dismal until it was in the midst of an area of decrepit riverfront warehouses. However, the noble old edifice was returned to a position of physical prominence by the razing of the warehouses for the new riverfront Jefferson Expansion Memorial. The Old Cathedral was restored to its original appearance beginning in 1959. In the process, a forgotten oval window above the altar was uncovered and later incorporated into the restored original interior design.

Building number 69 has many of the architectural features typical to this complex. The ground floor has large rounded arches. The middle floors are treated together and topped with round arches, and smaller arches are repeated on the sixth floor. Like many of the other buildings, it was a curved brick cornice at its roofline and on the first floor.


Cupples Station Building #73

1000 Clark

Spruce & 10th

Built: 1897
Architect: Eames and Young
Cupples Station Building number 73 has many of the features typical of the Cupples Station complex, although its Richardsonian Romanesque design appears much more modern. The ground floor features six large arches on both sides and back of the building. These Romanesque arches are repeated at the top of the fifth floor, as the second through fifth floors are treated together. A series of smaller arches again repeat the motif on the sixth floor. There is also a curved brick cornice line at the roof and on the first floor.                                                                                                                                                                       Hammermille paper

910 Spruce

Spruce & 9th

Built: 1895
Architect: Eames and Young
This building follows the form of the Cupples Station complex with one variant. Like most of the other buildings, the first floor has massive, round, arched windows and doors. Unlike the others, the large arch is repeated again on the second floor. The rest of the building is true to the Cupples Station form, with the middle third through sixth floors treated together and smaller arches on the seventh floor. A rounded brick cornice also appears on the first floor and the roofline.
