The hulking mixed use building at the corner of Blair and Salisbury in the Hyde Park neighborhood has been fully restored as a part of the Hyde Park South Development by developers Duffe Nuernberger. Overall, 50 new units have been created in 26 gut rehabbed buildings. The subject of this post—1435 Salisbury—was the largest single project of the bunch and the most iconic.

For years the building sat open and un-boarded, leading to significant deterioration. Below is a shot from Geo St. Louis showing the building in 2007:
The rehabbed structure will house 1 large commercial space on the ground floor and 5 residential units.
