Work Begins on Long Vacant Pelican Building

Construction crews began work today on the historic Pelican Building at 2254 South Grand at Shenandoah. Building permits were issued Friday to St. Charles based developer MBR Shenandoah, LLC with estimated construction costs of $900,000. The first floor will be occupied by Domino’s Pizza which will relocate from it’s existing location on South Grand. Sources say the HOK designed residential building planned for next door is still going through design revisions.

The storied history of the building and it’s various tenants is well documented at Lost Tables.
