As you are probably aware by now, the Archdiocese of St. Louis has proposed demolishing the San Luis and replacing this unique Mid-Century Modern landmark with of all things a surface parking lot.
On Valentine's day we will gather to peacefully demonstrate how much we love this building (an how we would hate to see it fall for a parking lot). For additional information, visit noparkinglotonlindell.com
The image above is an approximation of what the proposed parking lot would look like. As you can see, we would be left with a giant hole in the urban streetscape of Lindell Boulevard. Adding more trees will not hide the great void that we would be left with. Original photo by Jeff Vines. So please come Saturday at noon and show your love.
