Forest Park Hospital Demolition Nears Completion
ST. LOUIS (AP) - Demolition of the old Forest Park Hospital in midtown St. Louis is nearly complete, clearing the way for work on a planned expansion of the St. Louis Zoo.
KTVI-TV reports the project will eventually include a hotel, zoo-themed restaurant and expanded animal habitats. There are also plans for a gondola over Interstate 64 connecting the new zoo grounds with the existing property.
Demolition of the former hospital has been ongoing for several weeks.
