St. Louis and it's wonderful architecture.

 

Gateway Arch (1965, Eero Saarien) is the tallest structure in St. Louis at 630 feet, but it usually isn't counted among the tallest buildings. (Pictured above-center )

Metropolitan Square (1988, HOK Architects), ranks #1 as the tallest office building in St. Louis at 593 feet, 42 stories. It keeps our AFE Chapter President busy, as he is the Chief Engineer. (pictured above-right)

Laclede Gas Building (1969, Emery Roth and Sons), ranks #5 of the tallest office buildings in St. Louis at 400 feet, 35 stories. It keeps our AFE Member Mr. Creech busy, as he is the Chief Engineer. (pictured above-left)

500 Broadway( 1971, Smith and Enterzoth) is tied at 13th place in the tallest office buildings in St. Louis at 282 feet, 22 stories. This is where November meeting with Trane Company will be held.
