As part of Section 106 mitigation of demolition of St. Louis’ last 1949 Housing Act-funded high-rise public housing tower, at the former Arthur Blumeyer Homes, the St. Louis Housing Authority agreed to both create a historic context study for high-rise public housing in the city and survey the five towers built under the later Turnkey program. The Authority hired PRO to undertake this work, which included developing a historic
narrative as well as field survey of remaining towers. The State Historic Preservation Office accepted the final draft of the resulting report, High-Rise Public Housing Towers in St. Louis, Missouri in June 2014.
