Two Downtown Buildings to Be Added to the National Register?

There are two downtown buildings up for nomination to the National Register of Historic Places at the April 24 meeting of the Preservation Board:

The Farm & Home Savings and Loan Association Building at 1001 Locust, and the former Peabody Coal Company National Headquarters at 301 N. Memorial Drive.

We know that Craig Heller has plans to renovate the Farm & Home Building as office space, but I haven't heard any plans for the Peabody Building. If it is added to the National Register and eligible for tax credits, perhaps that means a renovation is imminent and that new tenants will be coming soon.

The three-story, 48,000 sf Peabody Building is completely vacant, and space is available for $12.00 psf. Rick Messey of Colliers Turley Martin Tucker is the listing agent - (314) 862-7100.
