Our Work

These are just a few of the more notable St. Louis area demolition projects Z&L Wrecking has been entrusted with:

Gaslight Square Demolition

Gaslight Square was a thriving entertainment district in St. Louis in the 1950s, helping to launch the careers of The Smothers Brothers, Barbara Streisand and Miles Davis. But by the late 1990s, those famous nightspots were long gone and the area was in decay. We were selected to demolish the remaining structures, paving the way for the area to thrive once again, this time as a brand new residential district.

Raskas Dairy Demolition

The former Raskas Dairy plant and warehouse was partially demolished by Z&L Wrecking in order to create Ranken Technical College's Mary Ann Lee Technology Center. Our expertise allowed us to successfully complete a partial demolition on the building in order to fulfill the vision of our client – the plans for Ranken's Technology Center incorporated part of the former Dairy into the new building.

Avalon Theatre Demolition

The Avalon Theatre in south St. Louis was built during the Great Depression. Closed since 1999 and condemned since 2006, we completed the demolition of the theatre and the leveling of the site in 2012.

Lenor K Sullivan Warehouse Demolition

At the turn of the 20th century, massive warehouses lined the St. Louis riverfront. Z&L Wrecking removed once such complex on Lenor K Sullivan Blvd, clearing an entire city block of the abandoned and unsafe structures.
