^ My take away. BIG TECH stays Coastal. Yes, Apple biggest area of expansion is just down the road in Austin and some jobs in Boulder & Colorado along with Amazon adding logistics center in Nasheville. I put Amazon in the Big Tech group with its huge Cloud business that will drive revenues way beyon...
PD article on Koman development as well as some other items. Crescent Building already 85% pre leased and CORTEX in talks for residential development on the surface parking lot next to CORTEX 1 https://www.stltoday.com/business/local/koman-s-cortex-office-building-could-start-construction-soon/artic...
^^ Did Koman reference/rendered a future mixed use building where the surface lot is in the latest rendering and therefore the pathway. I would assume that the mixed use would also have to incorporate some structure parking. Agree with Shadrach. Would be kinda neat if some of the proposals would inc...
In a Q&A with the Business Journal the developer for this project says he's planning a full grocery store as an anchor in this development. https://www.bizjournals.com/stlouis/news/2018/12/03/q-a-why-an-indianapolis-multifamily-developer-is.html Thanks, any other tidbits that seem interesting? or h...
^ I don't know what they are going for other then a rendering that is different. What is being built at BPV is good representation what is being built next to ATT, Bay area and or vice versa in my mind. Curious, anyone heard how One Cardinal Way is doing on lease rates? Any indication of Two Cardina...
Just thought I'd share the A's plans for a new "Jewell Box" ballpark in Oakland, designed by Bjarke Ingels Group (only 34,000 seats, BTW). https://www.msn.com/en-us/sports/mlb/as-propose-jewel-box-ballpark-for-waterfront-coliseum-redevelopment/ar-BBQc25d?ocid=spartandhp https://img-s-msn-com.akamai...
Sorry for always posting here but I just really like this thread. And this happens to be really big news for passenger rail. U.S. Finally Legalizes Modern, European-Style Train Cars As for what this has to do with STL, since we've known about this for awhile, I fully expect that the new Siemens car...
But to go off of STLtoCHI's point, I can see the Lawrence Group doing more in Midtown-Grand Center in the future. What that may be, I don't know but I hope it's great! It would seem logical for Lawrence Group to pursue a more residential/mixed use development as part of their Midtown-Grand Center h...
Completely speculative on my part but would one the major fintech players outside of Square, like Apple Pay, consider St Louis? Maybe a play like Amazon is doing with having a logistics hub in Nashville w 4000 employees there instead of the high cost coast. A workforce that takes care of the machine...
^ Would a mixed use 4-5 story building with some ground retail & residential along/fronting Brentwood Ave and next to the proposed corner hotel development be a good fit if Equis could get its hands on those single story retail buildings? or maybe another developer if they could pull together an agr...
Now, to get back on subject. Anyone know how long this kerfuffle with U City is going to keep the line from crossing the city/county line? So anyone think this is some of U City powers to be attempt to kill the trolley? Make sure it runs on shortened route over winter months and then claim it is a ...
^ My understanding is the new ownership as well as MLS league to be in the thick of it, urban setting. Yes, everyone could pack up and easily drop it in the county on the easy to build, level floodplain protected by subsidized levee. However, I do think it is fair to say that the city is not simply ...

^ Agree with the AT&T package/campus idea. However, adding Citygarden to the mix might not be allowed. A city vote is required to develop any parkland if I'm not mistaken. I was thinking in terms of a hard commitment to spend a few million dollars sprucing up Citygarden, replace sidewalks in the im...
Has anyone brought up the idea that this was the plan all along? Get multiple cities to bid, then break it up into three cities to reap way more incentives? The whole thing was a sham. The writing was on the wall from the start if you ask me. Bezos owns a $23 million mansion in DC and the Washingto...
Since you want to go down the road of why would she lie as a basis of your argument. You can also ask, why didn't she follow through instead of pulling her item from the agenda? She is in the same game. As by your comments, she could probably bring up a fair share of dirt on Reed. As far as this thr...
Wow... this is pretty blatant blackmail. Reed is a f***ing a**hole. No reason for the city to own this. How many times do we have to get f***ed over before our dumb-ass, Podunk politicians get a f***ing clue. I wonder how much $ the Taylors are promising to Reed's crooked ass. I can't say who is te...
^ I might have to grab a wall street journal just to read about the divide big tech companies are creating. Their is a huge difference for better or worse as someone who went from Chicago to St. Louis to now the Bay Area in the last twenty years. I was lucky to move to the bay area and afford a hous...
Updated with PD article outlining help and timeline the coming months. Seems to match up and be in place for December MLS league meeting if I recall past posts correctly Owner group rep states that they will build stadium with no debt. So assuming similar deal that DeWitt got for Busch stadium if I ...
What I don't expect, is for this one to be anywhere near as successful as KC's. Have to agree, but also two very different systems for two very different reason in defense of the Loop Trolley. I really, truly believe the Loop Trolley will do better if Forest Park Forever could fund an extension to ...
^ Thanks,

Wonder how accurate the website is? Website stating that it will be opening 4th quarter of 2019. Assume ground would have to be broken pretty soon to meet that construction timeline.
I would venture to guess that they want control over their own building and future. It's probably more reasonable to assume that any of those developments will cost them a ton to have space in. If they can find the capital, I don't see why they wouldn't reach for something of their own. Good point,...
There was a new business journal article stating that 900 N. Tucker (Post Dispatch) building is being looked at for the office. McKelvey has a connection to that building. Also, should this thread title change names or a new one made? Would say more then a connection, believe McKelvy now owns or ma...
