Big development
IF it sells out fast and interest is as strong as we all predict it will be, it could help create more luxury residential downtown nearby. Whether it be a BPV phase III or some other developer, more high rise residential around the ballpark just seems inevitable. You know that is the case. BPV will...
Local press interviews were given by me personally for almost 30-45 mins in July after the above mentioned article. When there is an update Alterra will issue a Press Release. The press have all the contact info of our PR person. Alterra will be holding community outreach meetings for the STL citiz...
Folks: all of these "stories" are utter bulsh&t. Not because we may disagree with them, but because they are not real stories. No person from USA today or any other city visited any of these places. Nobody at any 'news' source cares how livable any of them are. Every one of these "articles" are lite...
Is the area in the OP story part of the CID that fired all its guides in order to pay SLMPD for extra coverage?

Mike, Thanks for posting. Have you gotten in touch with local media? Back in July, the Post-Dispatch wrote : Sarimsakci, who once invited the Post-Dispatch to tour the Jefferson Arms with his feng shui master, has become harder to reach in recent months. The Turkish-born developer generated consider...
There's a reason for no retail: CRIME Is there much crime downtown? I feel like there's not much crime downtown. Though perception is important, I'm not one to simply make decisions based on what I feel at a given time. It's easy to see what kind of crime goes on downtown . In the last two weeks, i...
I guess this is more Paul Brown news - but the only retail tenant on that block (8th/9th/Pine/Olive), a decoration store, is going out of business - in the space that used to be Espresso Mod. Any potential tenants? So we're not counting Pitas And More? Not retail per se but still important for stre...

I know discussion of the Omni is kind of off topic but I'll continue a previous conversation instead of starting a new thread. Does anyone know the status of the Majestic (formerly Omni Majestic) hotel? It was debranded quite a while ago. The awnings were torn down and still not replaced. If you loo...
As money isn't produced out of thin air - what are the downsides to privatization? All I hear is that privatization would generate a huge chunk of cash for the city, that the new owner will plow in lots of money to improve the airport, and presumable the new owner will make money on top of that in t...
St. Louis County Police Chief Jon Belmar said a pilot program would allow authorities to test how a barrier system would operate and assess the costs and benefits and “see how it’s received” by the public." I'd perceive it a lot better if the County and CIty PD did the job they were supposed to do ...

It appears to be completely empty and abandoned. All the art is gone. Are they still getting use out of it? Do you usually refer to university facilities as "empty and abandoned" during the summer? If they look empty and abandoned, yes. Extra points if the abandonment coincides with the shuttering ...
Haven't made a careful study of it. How closely do typical county assessments compare to typical sale prices? I know the assessed value of my home is well below both what I pad for it and what it's ostensibly worth. Why that's the case, I'm not quite sure. It was my impression, at least, that this ...

It's a use that will require a zoning change.

Most of the Rothman's will reopen as a franchise furniture store chain. Not Shrewsbury
Maybe I missed it but...why don't you say what the use is?
I wonder if this buyer plans to keep the building or demolish it and utilize the massive property. Who knows, with Bob's expanding so quickly, I wouldn't be surprised if they purchased the property. As of now, this is a good sign because this area doesn't need another massive eyesore. The group tha...

As has been noted elsewhere, Rothman's is closing all of their stores.

I expect much of the current retail acreage along Watson will soon go residential.
According to the P-D article, the Watson location is already under contract. No details.
I know you have one data point, but I think most people in that are do not find their property taxes low at all. When I got my property tax bills in the county, I'd always look at my neighbors' bills up and down there was always one anomalous one that would drop by 25% when everyone else's went up 1...
BTW rumor is that Rothman is going to close too. And Mackenzie Pointe is sporting about 40% vacancy. Quite a renaissance from Walmart moving in, eh?
Sad to see a long time STL business close. At least they are closing for personal reasons. Based upon the state of this stretch of Watson Rd. is this area prime for a large scale demo and rebuild? I hate strip malls as much as anyone, but this area is starting to look like a wild west ghost town wi...

I heard from somebody who worked for the building management company that the current owner of AT&T Center is planning to default on their loan. Sounds like it's pretty typical for setups like this one.
This already happened about two weeks ago.
:oops:

As long as the first floor isn't some chintzy art gallery or event space. Has the opportunity to really activate the OPOP As did all the other first floors along OPOP that became chintzy art galleries, event spaces, and unoccupied. As did Culinaria before that..... Makes me curious what its 'activa...
