Crown Square Update

Exciting times continue in Old North St. Louis as the Crown Square project enters a new phase. Construction is spreading around the 14th St. Mall. Interior demolition is well underway in the Parks Building across from Crown Candy Kitchen and the Old North St. Louis Restoration Group office, in full view of all the patrons. The interior of this building is being completely gutted, as it was destroyed by fire several years ago. Several more buildings will be starting soon as well.

On the rest of the site, framing continues as well as rough ins, brick work, and drywall. The two buildings on the 1300 block of Warren continue to receive finishes.

Check out more pics from today and previous update on our Flickr Page in the Crown Square Set.
