Favorite thing: This was originally the HQ of the Bell Telephone Company in St. Louis; now it is loft apartments, with a nifty small grocer on the ground floor. The building is in a fascinating version of the American Romanesque style of the 1890s, with prominent rounded arches on the fourth and sixth floors. Interestingly, it was designed by the Architectural firm of Shepley Rutan & Coolidge, the successor company to H. H. Richardson.
