Not totally opposed to this development. My main concern is lack of orientation to the street and too few residential units to take place of the housing that will be lost.
UMSL moving forward with redevelopment plans near Express Scripts By Brian Feldt Express Scripts was heralded as a major coup for the University of Missouri – St. Louis when the still growing pharmacy benefits manager announced in September 2005 it would relocate its corporate headquarters from Mary...
The bus doesn't go down this part of Euclid anymore. Did any of those projects build less parking than gov't mandated because of their proximity to transit?

Hell even downtown St. Louis doesn't have form based code and it's probably the last major city downtown in America without it. Source? EDIT: Providence, RI is the only major Downtown that I know of that MIGHT have a Form-Based Code and I'm yet to even locate concrete evidence of that. Although I h...
Yeah, I would say Jazz At Walter Circle and the new Senior Housing at the Memorial Hospital station are the only real TOD we've had. MetroLink has been abysmal when it comes to spurring development. Though I would only blame our region's poor leadership and our State's continual funding of highway ...
I don't think its a stretch to believe that the idea of this type of investment in North City is directly related to the NGA's move. http://www.stltoday.com/business/local/developer-behind-jefferson-arms-rehab-looking-to-buy-land-in/article_6dd3c204-a94d-5bd7-b440-56d5db6cab88.html#tracking-source=...
^ These towers will be modestly tall, but do we think they will have a really big impact on the skyline? I'm thinking St. Louis will need a few 500ft+ towers to really have a dramatic effect on the skyline. What do you guys think?
I'm not worried about additional BPV parcels. If Cordish & Cardinals see the demand for One Cardinal Way, I would expect things to start rolling fast. 300 Broadway is unique because an outside developer is interested in building off BPV and Downtown momentum. The competition there will give Cordish...
It's amazing to see old pics of St. Louis and realize how degraded the built environment is in comparison. It seems like many other cities were able to retain much more of their old streetscapes, St. Louis went crazy during urban renewal in favor of the automobile. I mean the city was the same 61sqm...

Let's not forget that St. Louis has had a market for over 200 years, it's called Soulard Market. This is really just a 21st century reincarnation of the same concept. The fact is that great cities have markets. I think St. Louis is just late when it comes to trends, this being the urban food court i...
This is totally anecdotal, but I have an acquaintance who works at the executive level in SF for a well known tech firm. In casual conversation last week about how things were going in SF and his firm in general he mentioned how he's hearing the "younger", "hipper" tech workers are talking about ho...
How many rooms will be removed from the market when the City Center Hotel (formerly Sheraton) closes? https://www.tripadvisor.com/Hotel_Review-g44881-d220242-Reviews-St_Louis_City_Center_Hotel-Saint_Louis_Missouri.html I don't know, but those will be some cool apartments when it closes. Great Views!
This is ridiculous. Afro-AMERICANS are not moving to Africa in any real capacity. Sorry to bust your bubble. We were here in the beginning and we are here to stay.
Upon further review. Considering the exclusion of St. Louis, Detroit and Baltimore it's only a matter of time so I'll go ahead pose the question. Is Amazon racist? Is Atlanta their "but one of my best friends is black" city on the list? And what about San Francisco? No tech infrastructure? No talen...
Although I'm a little surprised we didn't at least make the first cut, it's probably better to be off the list now and not get needlessly strung along for another year. Meanwhile, Pittsburgh is proving itself a cut above it's peer cities. So much so that I'm not sure it's even a peer city of St. Lo...
Orleans Landing looks great and could be plopped right on the North Riverfront and fit right in. Cincinnati also has a district called the Banks, which has also been a highly successful planned redevelopment. I don't know what it is, but St. Louis just can't get it's riverfront development together....

St. Louis has been getting a lot of bad press lately. Murder rate, Ferguson, losing the Rams. It's been a rough decade for the region and city. I think the region needs to do something this decade to turn this trajectory around before it's too late. Gasm, I also agree with your assessment of the cit...
UMSL could be the Missouri equivalent of UCLA if the state actually got serious about funding higher education. For all of the nonsense that happens in other "conservative" states, many of them actually do fund their higher education programs much better than Missouri. Much of the growth in the Rese...
My guess is another venue that shuts down after 4pm, if not immediately, eventually. Porano somehow braves the post work crowd, but it's depressing going in there for dinner. I'm usually the only one. Sugarfire is usually pretty popping, but just look around Downtown and there are empty dining room...

^ so what's the take-away... is there definitely some money behind it in place to get things going? a timeline on when things might begin with construction?
This is definitely going to be the next major Civic Progress fund raising initiative. I predict it will be under construction by mid 2020s.
