A building on the national historic registry now has an expiration date.
If a buyer does not come forward to purchase the building in the next month, it will be torn down. Cupples 7, at 11th and Spruce in downtown St. Louis, has been designated for demolition after engineers said the building is an imminent danger.
Mayor Slay says the only hope for the building is for an angel investor to step forward and renovate it. Cupples 7 was built between 1894 and 1917.
