Planned: A vacant building has been identified for demolition, but has not yet been awarded to a demolition contractor.

Complete: The demolition process is complete, the site has been reviewed and approved by an inspector, and all required paperwork has been received from the demolition contractor.
Demolition Funding Provided By
City Building Division
The City of St. Louis Building Division enforces the City's building codes, conducts building inspections, enforces zoning ordinances, and demolishes vacant buildings. With an increase in demolition funds (as of July 2018) the Building Division is better equipped to demolish hazardous and condemned structures to increase public health and safety.
Urban Greening Program
St. Louis Development Corporation - with funding from the Metropolitan St. Louis Sewer District - demolishes vacant buildings with the goal of removing impervious surface and reducing combined sewer overflows. In many locations, demolitions are part of neighborhood planning and community green space projects through Green City Coalition.
