We've got to fix our national reputation by getting out of the headlines for crime, protests and police shootings, consolidate this ridiculously divided region and start promoting what we all know makes STL great. Nothing new, but perception is reality right now for STL and it's up to us as a region...
Hopefully representatives from Cortex are on this. Apple would be a great fit for Cortex! If somebody has contacts within Cortex, see if they've inquired.
True, but here's the big difference :

Ohio State university enrollment: 66,444
Washington University enrollment: 15,155
Not that this is news to anyone, but Columbus is a State capital city with the major flagship state university located there. Those are two advantages we will never have! Ohio St. naturally brings young minds to their city on a regular basis from all over the country and world. Washington University...
Sad to see it go after all these years, but always wondered how it lasted this long. Anyone have any predictions on what retailer/tenant takes over? Let's hope it's a solid national retailer and not a less desirable one. Also, I hope it gets filled soon. That is too prime a location in south city to...
I know this article on the Hyperloop is a few months old, but I stumbled across it and got pissed. Who in the hell do these KC people think they are, fn Chicago or Dallas? This new found arrogance is getting ridiculous! They are so obsessed with one-upping STL.( nothing new ). KCStar never passes up...
It the merger a done deal?

I have not read anywhere that it is.
Stenger needs to get on this! The County needs to be doing whatever possible to keep them here!

Obviously there is a chance that any relocation would be inevitable if the deal goes through, but at the very least his office should be doing anything possible.
These towers will be visually impressive from the Poplar, especially when you clear the river going west. Great way to "welcome to St. Louis". Looking forward to some to scale skyline pictures with the renderings
You would have to think that this development, along with BPV will make the Millennium one hot property. If this all gets built, the Millennium owners should cease the opportunity and finally sell to a developer that will properly utilize that site. We need some of our graphic art experts to superim...
That looks awesome! This is a bitter-sweet project, but if I had to choose, obviously, the 33 story tower would be my choice. The 29-story BPV tower and this one, will give newcomers and passersby quite the welcome to STL. This is skyline changing stuff. Awesome! My vote, keep the current building o...
Biz Journal reporting Hofbrauhaus in Belleville will open in Jan. 2018. Finally!!!
Of the finalist, Nashville, Sacramento, Cincy & Detroit, it will likely be Nashville and SAC. Maybe now that we have a good amount of time, Jim K. and company will have some time to get there ownership group cleaned up and fill that $60 million gap. I know he is not the most popular guy in town, but...
Good article from Baltimore on the rise in carjackings. This article is very applicable to what we are seeing in STL.

What do they expect from 3G Capital, the group run by Jorge Paulo Lemann & Marcel Herrmann Telles. They are behind the buyout of Tim Hortons. As with INBEV, cost cutting, watering down of the product and synergies are what they specialize in. Tim Hortons will be a shell of it's pre-buyout self somed...
Hope none of those 5K jobs come at the expense of STL!
I just spent the better part of the week in the most "it city" in United States, Austin Texas. I will say this, their downtown is booming with activity and cranes are everywhere. There are a lot of young people everywhere. However, if you leave downtown to the UT area and explore the city, St. Louis...
https://www.google.com/amp/s/amp.jsonline.com/amp/869661001 This article from the MJS has some interesting information. The new company would be called Emerson-Rockwell, Emerson is likely to move the HQ, but keep a large presence in Milwaukee. (We've heard that before haven't we :roll: ). If this de...
^ I agree... If any job losses are to occur, I would expect them to be in Milwaukee.
^ All depends on what "synergies" Emerson can achieve after the two companies are integrated. Emerson expects to achieve $6 billion in synergies with this deal. Once the dust has settled, they'll have to assess where they are at with regards to personnel. In other words, it is hard to say at this ea...
Emerson has increased it's takeover bid of Rockwell Automation to $29 billion.

I can't tell. Does this plan include keeping the ice rink?
Looks like either The Mills site in Hazelwood or another site in St. Peters will be the home of the new sports complex funded partially by Matheny and Buck. I really like the reuse of the Mills idea, since that white elephant of a mall will likely sit otherwise. They can make hockey a big part of th...
I would say the Affton-Soco area is on the gain for 2020. Every small pocket of land is being developed with housing. Tower Tee (unfortunately), subdivision across from Affton HS and other smaller developments are adding people. I've observed families taking over homes emptied by empty-nesters and e...

Unfortunately, this appears to be the end of Tower Tee. Their lease is being terminated. Sad news!
