While no redevelopment plans are imminent, the owners of the sprawling historic Lemp Brewery complex on Broadway in south St. Louis City continue to invest in the property. Perhaps nothing is more essential than keep the water out of the buildings, so while the $500K permit for a new roof may not be what many would find exciting, it is an important investment in the future of the property.

The permit is for the three-story, approximately 120K sf building at the corner of Broadway and Cherokee, just west of I-55 (at far right below). Issued 03/24/2016, the contractor is listed as Artisan Building Co.
