Why STL Rising?

Because we are rising from decades of abandonment and decay, that left ruined buildings like this one...

...to a city that is being rebuilt block by block. It's a place of possibilities, that has room for believers and doers. Naysayers are being proven wrong on a daily basis.

Even in its current burnt out state that is a handsome building. Where is it located?

It's a central St. Louis building. Given last nite's weather, it might not have survived.

If it's gone, then the vacant lot could be converted into an opportunity for infill new construction, or division into two expanded side lots for the neighbors.
