Later the 705 Olive Building
705 Olive Street
Built: 1893
Architect: Adler & Sullivan

After the Wainwright, this is Louis Sullivan's other major surviving design in St. Louis. Its street-level facade, which featured massive and heavily ornamented circular windows at the second story, was considerably altered in 1924. A remnant of the round windows may still be seen on the west-side alley, however.
