Is anyone going to grab the Pevely sign off the roof of that building? Like City Museum maybe? https://www.google.com/maps/@38.6258412 ... a=!3m1!1e3
I emailed Native Foods a couple of years ago asking if they were going to expand into STL, and they said yes. Maybe this space could work.
I'd love to see some sort of tally of business movement during Slay's tenure. New companies to the area: # set up shop in city #set up shop in county Existing companies #relocated from county to city #see above, reverse locations #relocated from county to some other area in the county, bypassing any...
Did the city even try?
Good lord is that ugly. I didn't think we could do worse than Aventura.

I don't understand. What's in it for Millennium Hotels if they just let it sit there?
[quote="user28"]Definitely disappointing not to see more downtown offices from the big corporation from the county. Is there any specific reason that companies in the region don't see value in having offices in downtown or in the city? Earnings tax. A largely county based workforce that wi...
Looks like this statue was originally there too

I've soured on Antonio French after rallying against the stadium deal until he was for it, and new against NGA. I haven't heard him comment lately, but in the past he's poo-pooed the city being in the county.


Antonio French will always do whatever gets Antonio French the most attention.
I don't see women voting for Lewis Reed after the way he treated Megan Ellyia-Green.

I'd be on Team Scott Ogilve if he ran. I'd also be on Team Christine Ingrassia.
I'm all for a N-S line but for now I wish it would just follow 70 out to Riverport/Earth City.
No one is going to move in the city when the employers are locating out in BFE Earth City, Chesterfield, Maryland Heights etc. It should be easier to find a white collar job within the city than it is now.

I'm getting mad robocalled by the vote no people.
I spent some time on Cherokee last night for the first time in several months; I was surprised at how much has changed down there. This is interesting do do - Go on street view and pick the earliest and compare it to the most recent. You can see Vallesana before the expansion, El Bronco before they...
Where I pick random buildings in St Louis and do some digging. An extension of the 2711 Gravois thread. Lucky you all, the first one I picked is good. 3760 Osceola m Once home to Emil Mateker's grocery. Matekers is still in business in Concord Village. They moved from the Osceola location according ...
I really love digging info on old buildings, long dead people etc. Especially mixed use commercial. Every once in a while I find a picture of what it was at the time. Sometimes I can track down death certificates of the original occupants. The ads in the cleveland high school yearbook library are a ...
It was originally a pharmacy. Looks like the pharmacist lived above it at the time of his death.

Looking at De La Salle's MAP scores, is this building even going to get built before this becomes another failed, shuttered, charter school?
