Hilton Hotel is moving into the Shell Building at 1221 Locust Street in Downtown St. Louis. New Orleans-based Campo Architects, St. Louis-based Paric and Little Rock-based Reimagine Hospitality are involved in the project.

The 12-story Shell Building opened in 1926 as the corporate headquarters of Royal Dutch Shell’s U.S. subsidiaries, Roxana Petroleum now known as Shell Oil. The building was renovated in 1981 and was the headquarters for the River Front Times for a while.

  1. What a hidden gem, the first Shell Oil office.! A curved tall structure off Locust to 13th..tucked inside an alley next to a former park frequented with peaceful transit homeless and tired from former Larry Rice”ministry” high donations, dirty beds and food. CLOSED! Now a definite perimeter wide and all new anti-soliciting streetw? greatly enforced new entryways. The giant church of christ or other..?..is a gothic and very tall white walled church many homeless bundled up to sleep in its small stoops. Plus with the fenced off park behind expensive refurbished apartments, is now a larger dog park. Aside from the civic issues, and the greatly redone new historic public library, makes for a fabulous block for the new hotel.. the hotel will hopefully open up the back 2 way street from Washington Avenue. If any place needs gentrification and saving STL’s countless historic landmarks is our city.!! YA!!YA!!
