Re: SLU Hospital

I think it's important to note that the "green space" that SSM is talking about is actually that portion with trees tucked back between the buildings. Seems perfectly appropriate to me, and very welcome to hospital patients and visitors. As others have pointed out, the green space facing Grand will ...

Re: Preservation Board Agenda

Pretty hard to read the rendering, but I like the more modern look of the townhouse development. I'd approve it with just some minor tweaks. And the denial of the sun room on Washington Terrace seems petty; such sun rooms/solariums were very common in Victorian times.

Re: Residential tower coming to parking lot at NE Corner of Forsyth and Brentwood

The new nine-story parking garage/office building just announced for the site next door makes the first 9 floors on the eastern half of this tower essentially un-leasable.

Re: St. Louis in the National Media

^I'm sure the image was doctored. I remember a magazine ad many years ago for some whiskey that featured the Arch, and the skyline behind it was artificially filled in with a bunch of tall buildings. Looked great, but obviously fake to us St. Louisans.

You guys realize that the base is a screen for a parking garage, right? Those never turn out well.

Re: Forsyth Pointe

I appreciate the effort to do something contemporary, but the base just doesn't work. Hopefully they'll tweak the design and come up with something better.

Re: Recladding St. Louis' Towers

^Different strokes, I guess. I love the original, multi-color version, along with the base. And that Trader Vic's entrance; my god, it was awesome. Like Gasm says, cities should have architecture from all styles and eras. Variety; that's what makes life interesting.

He can talk all he wants about building a 50 story tower in the "North Riverfront District", but financing it would be impossible. The bankers would laugh him out of their office.
