Built originally in 1893 by Sullivan & Adler Architecture, this Union Trust Building is one of two in St. Louis, its sister building being the Wainwright Building. An addition was made to the back of the building, along 7th street in 1902, by Eames and Young and the streetscape saw a major change in 1924 when the original round windows at street level were taken away. The building is currently home to India Palace and Pickles Deli after the offices of Anders Accounting moved in 2013. Restoration STL plans to start construction as early as August 2016.
