Update: Mother Concordia Hall to be replaced by "streetscape"
An article published yesterday on the St. Louis Business Journal website reported that Mother Concordia Hall at St. Mary's Hospital is being demolished to make way for a "streetcape" project, essentially a beautification of the hospitals entrance at Demun Avenue (image above from the St. Louis Business Journal). The only good news here is that the building will not be replaced by parking. Apparently the appearance of the building, in other words the fact that it is old was a determining factor in the buildings fate. St. Mary’s President William Jennings is quoted saying: “St. Mary’s is largely a brand new hospital on the inside, and we want the outside to match.”
