St. Louis University has received approval from the city Planning Commission to demolish the historic Pevely Dairy Complex. The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that the commission approved the demolition Wednesday night.
The city Preservation Board originally denied the demolition request, prompting the appeal to the commission.
The St. Louis city Planning Commission has agreed to consider whether Saint Louis University should be allowed to tear down three buildings at the old Pevely Dairy site in midtown to build a new ambulatory care center.

This Google Maps screen capture looking east on Chouteau Ave. shows the old milk plant and office building of Pevely Dairy. The city approved a proposal that will allow SLU to tear down the milk plant - the office building would remain.
Saint Louis University says it's considering all options after the city's Preservation Board denied its request to demolish most of the Pevely Dairy complex and replace it with a new $75 million ambulatory care building at the site.
