Crown Square Update

It’s been a while since we’ve posted some photos of the progress being achieved at the 27-building redevelopment of the former 14th Street Mall, now known as Crown Square. Below are just a few shots from this morning. Above: the view from one of the apartments on the 3rd floor of the building at 2600 N. 14th Street (the one-time home of Peters Dry Goods & Clothing Co. and later the first J.C. Penney’s store in St. Louis).

Above: the apartments at 2824-2830 N. 14th are nearing completion and should be ready for occupancy by the end of the month.
Above: 2718-20 Blair is also nearing completion.
Above: a view down the street toward the Arch with the former Parks Drug Store building in the foreground.
Below: the interior of the former Parks building at 2718 N. 14th offers some fantastic views of the street, including neighborhood landmark Crown Candy Kitchen, just across the intersection of St. Louis Avenue.
Above: next door to the Parks building, 2712-14 N. 14th is making nice progress.
Above: the buildings from 2601 through 2611 N. 14th represent the unique character and diverse architectural heritage of Old North St. Louis.
Above: the exterior of the former Woolworth’s building at 2619 N. 14th has been cleaned up and is on its way to a new life as a mixed-use building with commercial and residential spaces.
Above: the apartment building at 2423 Blair has been brought back from the brink of collapse.
