The building at 100 North Tucker was built by a developer in 1964, opening for office tenants in 1965. Typical for that era, the 11-story structure had low ceilings and small windows. It was plain, a dog. It’s been “functionally obsolete” for decades now. Occupancy dwindled to the point the last owner donated it to his alma mater, Saint Louis University.

So one tall floor was added. Two previously unused elevator shafts got new elevators to the 12th, the originals stop at 11
I’ve not been happy with the direction former SLU President Larry Biondi took the main campus (fenced fortress) but his last project looks to be a winner. I’ve not tried The Docket restaurant on the ground floor yet, but at lunch on the day of the tour I saw a SLU law student at Empire Deli on Washington. An ugly building was given new life while adding many more people downtown.
Congrats and thank you to everyone that made this happen!
