Daily Dose of Blairmont 157

  • 2629 St. Louis Avenue (VHS Partners LLC, January 2006, $75,000)

September 2006

One of Blairmont's more prominent holdings, this battered mixed-use building stands alone on an otherwise empty stretch of St. Louis Avenue. Bits of its original cast iron storefront remain, speaking of a time when this was a major commercial thoroughfare, lined with similar buildings. Brick is re-emerging from behind a layer of painted stucco.

The building was last home to Laclede Cleaners.

This one's freshly boarded now. The only--ONLY--reason it has not been brick rustled yet, despite being at ground zero of where the rustling epidemic started, is that it had squatters for a long time.Other members of the underground economy respected theirownership-of-sorts of the house. Not sure if they've been put out now, but I worry.
