David Schlafly is restoring the approximately 100-year-old building for a new use.
The building at 7412 Manchester Road in Maplewood, now empty, will soon have two tenants. Developer David Schlafly owns it, and said one of the new tenants has signed and the other hasn’t.

The building will be named “Light Works.” He expects the work to be finished in time…
