There was brief hope once in 1986 that this lot along with the perpetually vacant Koplar Properties lot that a large development would bring proper definition to this important corner of the Central West End. A rendering was produced and published in the West End Word showing twin 30 story towers rising from a low-rise building base occupying the full extent of both properties. The development would have contained a hotel, offices, a cinema, retail and condominiums. While the architecture was typical 1980s, post-modern including some really bad mansard treatments at the top of the towers, the buildings would have brought a sense of completion to the stretch of Kingshighway along the east edge of Forest Park.
Like many tower proposals over the years, this one went no where and this prime Forest Park frontage remains parking lots today. Soon the Central West End will have yet another blank parking lot at the corner of Lindell & Taylor complements of the Archdiocese of St. Louis. Only time will tell if this space sits empty for 36 years or more.
