Eden Publishing House, Saint Louis, Missouri
from the Library of Congress

Given the state of the building back when these HABS photos were taken, I was prepared to see a parking lot on the site of this building, but wow, it’s still there (see Google Street View) and these days, Eden Lofts. 

From the LoC:

Eden Publishing House, 1712-1724 Chouteau Avenue, Lafayette Square, Saint Louis, Independent City, MO

Significance: The building served as headquarters for retail and printing operations of the Eden Publishing Company from 1869 to 1979. Several expansions occurred throughout the company’s time of occupation. In the 1930s the building underwent a major addition and renovation into the commercial Art Deco style. The building stands as a representative of German industry that was once pervasive throughout the Lafayette Park neighborhood and across central Missouri.

Building/structure dates: 1895-1896 Initial Construction
Building/structure dates: 1902 Subsequent Work
Building/structure dates: 1911 Subsequent Work
Building/structure dates: 1916 Subsequent Work
Building/structure dates: 1930-1931 Subsequent Work
Building/structure dates: 1955 Subsequent Work

More on the building over on the Eden Lofts web site.

About These Pics
Recently my dearest friend went to Tulsa for a few days, convinced it would be rather boring (true, turned out) but with my advice that he HAD to check out the architecture for me. And take pictures. I’ll try to figure out which buildings are which and label them, if I can. If you know what something is (got it wrong, not labeled), please contact the blog or email artdecoarch@gmail.com.

Sager Lofts, Atlanta, Georgiaby Wendy Darling
Sager Lofts in the Old Fourth Ward, Atlanta, Georgia. Like all new construction in the area, it was built according to a neighborhood code to requires an industrial/streamline look, like something you’d see in Germany. (I know this because my best friend wrote the code.) This is a new building but it’s a total throwback to the past.

123 Luckie, Atlanta, Georgiaby Wendy Darling
My best  friend’s lived there since it opened — first new construction in  decades Downtown — in 2001. The interior is modern industrial but the  exterior is definitely an homage to Art Deco. Of course I love it.BTW,  skyscrapers in the background: Westin Peachtree Plaza Hotel (still  under repairs from 2008 tornado at the time I took this shot) and 191 Peachtree (Philip Johnson).
P.S. I posted this same image very early in the life of this  blog. I’m reposting a whole bunch of my own images so if you’re a  long-time follower, no, you’re not going crazy.
