Clayton Skyscrapers

I remarked this weekend that I'm sort of not unhappy that these skyscrapers ended up in Clayton instead of downtown St. Louis. They're unremarkable, and St. Louis needs remarkable buildings.The juxtaposition between new and old in Clayton is fascinating, as it is still relatively new as an office center.I don't think Clayton would have happened without St. Louis withdrawing from the County; otherwise, there would have been no need for a county seat in Clayton.
Here is the Laclede Center, built by the Danforths, it began the exodus of offices from downtown to Clayton. Thanks guys!
