Built St. Louis > > Central Corridor > > Midtown > > Jesuit Hall

At the end of the block stands Saint Louis University's Jesuit Hall, originally built as the Melbourne Hotel in 1923, with a 1929 annex. It later served as a women's dormitory, and now is home to Jesuit and Dominican communities.

The annex follows the turning of the street grid, lending an odd shape to the completed building, as seen in this view from the nearby Continental Building.

This view is the reverse of a photograph I took years ago, showing the view of the Continental Building from the top of Jesuit Hall.

A detail shot showing both the ornament of the building's upper floors, and the peculiar meeting point of the original building with the 1929 annex.
