All in all, I'd say it's a pretty nice batch of infill.
Never read the comments. Anywhere. Ever.
I understand the solar power part, but any factory requires lots and lots of water. And I don't get the logistics part either.

But yeah, I know the guy's super smart. Just sayin'.
I've been curious about his solar panel roof tiles. They sound too good to be true.

Also, anyone who would build a multi-billion dollar factory in the middle of a freaking desert has to be lacking some plain old common sense.
At least we've got the hippest archdiocese.

At least it's not as bad as the 58-story tower in San Francisco that's sunk 16" and is leaning.

Let's just hope all these projects get their financing finalized before the Historic Tax Credits are killed by the Missouri legislature.
Looks like renovations on the old CID buildings are underway too.
Good lord, do people really need a sky bridge to cross a street barely two lanes wide?

1993 was the record homicide year
Actually, 1970 set the record with 309. There were 267 in 1993.

This article includes a chart going back to 1934:

I'd contact The Screwed Arts Collective. It's a loose group of young artists doing exactly this type of work. Lots of pics on their website: http://www.screwedarts.com/ http://www.screwedarts.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/07/si_5.jpg http://www.screwedarts.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/08/ScrwAF2.jpg ht...
I think this corner would be perfect for a mixed-use tower with hotel, office, and residential space. Whatever happens, this is a very expensive, desirable piece of land, which will only get more valuable, so whatever eventually gets built there will have to be big.
^The parking lot on the left will be occupied by the A Loft hotel and the apartment building.
Does the article say anything about the size of Phase II? Is it still what we've seen in the renderings, or have they scaled-back anything?
^Not really. This is the western facade:

Update on the art project titled "A Way, Away", which is re-using the bricks from the now demolished Bruno David Gallery:

At least it's not gonna be a Cabo Wabo.
Lots of steel going up on the Microsoft building. Looks like only the back wall is tilt-up.
They're gonna get a ton of sweet visuals to help promote The Loop.
