National Trust Selects the Former St. Louis Palladium in Grand Center As a Most Endangered
Today the National Trust for Historic Preservation included the St. Louis Palladium Building, a former jazz club known as the Club Plantation, at 3618 Enright in Grand Center, as among the 11 most significant and endangered buildings in the entire United States. Taken straight from the pages of Landmarks Association's Most Endangered Lists where it has resided since 2012, many in St. Louis have been hoping to see the building rehabiliated and brought back to productive use for years, while warily keeping an eye on a possible threat from the expansion of the John Cochran Veterans Hospital next door. Now the National Trust has stepped up to the plate and recognized the building's significance to American cultural heritage while echoing the concerns of the St. Louis preservation community about its lack of procedural protection from arbitrary demolition.
