From Alderman Craig Schmid:

Advanced Environmental Services, an environmental remediation firm specializing in abatement services for asbestos, lead, and mold, as well as fire & water restoration and demolition, is showing off its new headquarters in the Benton Park West Neighborhood —

THIS FRIDAY, AUGUST 27, AT 11 A.M.
3100 GRAVOIS AT MICHIGAN/JUNIATA
RIBBON CUTTING CEREMONY.

The event will be the culmination of a year of breathing new life into this old, abandoned warehouse in the Benton Park West Neighborhood. Dennis Ruckman, CEO of Advanced Environmental Services, and H & A Restoration & Development have focused on the historic details of this $1.2 million dollar investment. The building has been restored to look as it did in the 1940s (see Fabick CAT history with a great photo at url:

The project will result in the retention of 17 jobs in the City of St. Louis with growth opportunities and includes Brownfield Tax Credits and Historic Tax Credits. Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design (LEED) certification at the Silver level is being sought.

Mayor Francis G. Slay is scheduled to attend the ribbon cutting ceremony.

This turned out well. When I saw the hearing notice posted on the cyclone fence, I thought the worst. Still, would have been better if they had retained the original windows. Not complaining though. ‘Tis only a minor caveat. Maybe I’ll wander on down and see the joint on the inside. Who knows, perhaps they’re hiring.
