Greyhound on the Move

by Michael R. Allen

Word is that Greyhound has signed a lease for the proposed multi-modal transportation center planned in downtown St. Louis just south of Kiel Center.

What is going to happen to the lovely Cass Bank Building at 13th and Cass now occupied by Greyhound? It is located in a nether zone between downtown and the near north side’s residential areas, and will be uncomfortably close to a noisy and congested off-ramp from the proposed Mississippi River bridge. Will the Beaux Arts building and its lobby of marble and gilt plaster be another casualty? Or can we figure out a new use for it before Greyhound vacates?

What would you like to see there?
