Cementland Saint Louis (aka LaFarge Cement Plant)

This site was Lafarge Cement Plant until it closed down. Eventually, the owner of Saint Louis City Museum bought it and is currently transforming it into Cementland...

Check out Cementland Part 2, here.

Dillard's Department Store

This building was constructed in 1907 originally as the Stix Baer & Fuller department store. It closed in 2002 along with the adjacent Saint Louis Center mall. Currently it is awaiting conversion into lofts. The company who began the project went bankrupt and thus it sits mostly gutted.

The Continental Life Insurance Building

This is the topmost suite, with roof access at either end. The adjacent suite used to belong to the Falstaff Brewing Company, but it is now occupied by someone else.
