Landmarks' Enhanced/Endangered Lists

As part of its annual Preservation Week festivities, the Landmarks Association of St. Louis released its lists of the Most Enhanced and Most Endangered historic structures in the St. Louis area.

A few downtown redevelopment projects made the Most Enhanced list this year:

- 1100 Clark - Cannon Design's renovation of a historic powerhouse, which is now home to the firm's headquarters.
- 2615 Washington - Blue Urban's colorful G.W. Lofts development.
- 1901-37 Washington - Robert Wood's Tudor Building, which is now home to City Pet Supply and Smokin' Joe's BBQ, with Wicked Fresh Subs coming soon. Something tells me Mr. Wood may be on this list next year for his redevelopment of 1818 Washington, which is currently underway.

No downtown buildings were listed on the Most Endangered list. The ommission of 919 and 923 Locust was a surprise to me. I guess Landmarks figures they're good as gone.
