On our home page, we show a photo of the city from The Chouteau Building in the Grove. That is the monstrous 7 floor building at Hemp and Vandeventer or Manchester. Just to the right of the large electrical pole that stands next to the "S" is the Steelcote Building. The lettering of the Steelcote can be seen in the image. In other terms, it is North of Chouteau, South of Interstate 64, East of Grand and West of Compton in that industrial area. In shorter terms, the address is 801 Edwin Street.
Planned is 32 loft apartments in the building that is five stories tall and the renovation of nearby structures to turn this once industrial part of the city into a more livable area. Currently, the area is not to desirable because it is by railroad tracks and sandwiched between other industrial buildings, but since the area was blighted after a request form SLU, that could all change.
