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.
