ST. LOUIS (AP) -- The St. Louis Planning Commission has given the OK for Saint Louis University to demolish the historic Pevely Dairy complex.
The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that the commission approved the demolition Wednesday. The city Preservation Board originally denied the demolition request, prompting the appeal to the commission.
Saint Louis University wants to replace the complex with an outpatient center for its SLUCare physicians practice. But some oppose because the four-story building that was Pevely's main office building is nearly 100 years old, and the building and others on the eight-acre site are on the National Register of Historic Places.
