The South Side National Bank

Building Context

But best of all...I got to see the spectacular views of the city from the building's roof.

The view is breathtaking. Dozens of landmarks are visible: all of downtown, Roosevelt High School, downtown Clayton, Anheiser-Busch, the Compton Hill Tower and the Midtown skyline, State Hospital, St. Anthony of Padua church, even the Jefferson Barracks Bridges on the distant horizon. On a very clear day, my guide informed me, you can actually see the cars crossing the river.

One penthouse unit will have half the roof space to itself; the remainder is a shared space for all the other units. The space is a bit tight, but it's so worth it.
