Top of the Parking Garage

March 16, 2015

Downtown St. Louis has far too many parking garages that deaden the streetscape and ugly-up our beautiful built environment.  In the spirit of optimism, these garages are definitely good for one thing – providing public access to breathtaking views otherwise reserved for the occupants of corner offices.  Below are some of my favorite Downtown St. Louis parking garage rooftop photographs.

  1. I’m pretty excited about these pictures, especially the first one (and I think it’s really clever to use those parking garages for some beautifying purpose at least).
