St. Louis’ Kiel Opera House has gone unused for nearly two decades, but that may finally be coming to a close. The building is now slated to undergo a $78 million renovation to begin in the next few days.
Deputy St. Louis mayor for development, Barbara Geisman, said that recent bond sales are likely to seal the deal.
“The proposed renovation of the Kiel Opera House took a big step forward…Many agreements related to private debt and equity financing needed for the development have been substantively completed,” Geisman said.
Stacy Hastie, president and chief executive of Environmental Operations Inc., reported that asbestos and lead paint removal is scheduled.
Removal of all traces of asbestos must occur prior to the renovation. Diseases such as asbestosis, lung cancer and mesothelioma have been known to arise from the exposure. Asbestos exposure has been shown to be the cause of the development of mesothelioma, a rare and aggressive form of cancer, for which there is no known cure.
