As you walk along First Street you will notice four buildings built side by side. They were the home of Christian Peper Tobacco Company. The complex was erected in phases, one building at a time, with a total size exceeding 240,000 square feet. The southern most buildings are the headquarters of the Bi-State Development Agency, who occupy all five floors of offices. Shops and restaurants occupy the first and ground levels and the atrium offers a beautiful view of the Arch while you catch a bite to eat.
Built in 1898.
