:lol: So true!! Part of the hotel staff training—yeah, I'm a "Hotel Impossible" junkie—should be to get the staff and general managers in the habit of using the CSB twitter account to ensure front bumpers and broken side mirrors are cleaned up. I know....that's quite the ask as its hard enough to tr...
When we had the Rams, the dome's availability was blocked out for half the year because of the NFL schedule. Everything revolved around the NFL schedule which made it impossible to secure some large events/conventions. This sounds vaguely familiar—trying to recall an elevator conversation I had wit...
The NFL is a juggernaut. It can't compete. But can it be profitable and function on its own? Probably. His proposed model is very different than the NFL--such as all teams owned by the league and not individual ownership groups, two hour game time, etc. It's more philosophical to me. The game of foo...
I would rather the Dome be used for large events (NCAA, extreme sports, conventions, etc) than a dedicated home for a XFL team. Yeah, those five home games are really going to interfere with the Auto Show, Boat Show, Home and Garden show and the um.......um.......you know.....um, al those other sho...
Was tempted to post this a while ago but it was hearsay. A couple of weeks ago, a friend of mine who's a student counselor for SLCC (Florissant) told me the Forest Park buildings aren't coming down and the new ones were being built next to them. We went back and forth— 'They are!' :x 'No, they're no...
Hmmm, this comment seems out of context unless I missed the first part. I assume this is regarding Rawlings. I was thinking last night that with MLB as the owner, a move to BPV would make perfect sense. Something tall. With a gigantic, lit-up Rawlings logo. And their 'corporate museum' expanded and ...
We all talk about the rumored height limit downtown with the Arch and all.

I'm beginning to think Cortex has a 4-story height limit.
^My, those Genesis engines have really grown on me! I didn't like them at first because I loved the F40PH so much... Which I didn't like at first either, as I really loved the old F9s so much.... Guess I better just start loving those Chargers now and get it over with :D (and for the record, never l...
This is that hill.
This Seems like a fallacy of some sort. Just because you’re sure a ‘deal could have been struck& doesn’t mean a ‘deal could have been struck.’ I’m not privy to all the mechanics of development but wanting ‘something to be so’ because it ‘should be so’ feels rather idealistic. But what is this forum ...
^ It should be pointed out that, unless you plan on decommissioning runway 12R/30L, the 2nd plan there is impossible. Only a single taxiway between the runway and the extra-long concourse that would be blocked by any aircraft pulling in/pushing out of a north side gate. 8) Dude, knock it off with t...
This may have been posted sometime here - but this is an expansion plan for STL and their model ideas from 2015/2017 reports. http://www.gatewaystreets.org/2017/visions-of-new-concourses-at-lambert-airport/ Wow!! Going to repost these images (created/posted back in July 2016) https://preview.ibb.co...
The occupational earnings tax is supported by city residents precisely because its a means to fleece people who don’t live in the city and don’t use city services. Earnings Tax is a misnomer. Remember the old adage— "If you ever see anyone publicly urinating in St. Louis, he's either homeless or fr...
I'll fess up—I'm the guy you hate. :oops: For business reasons, I constantly had a number of 6:30/7am flights out of T2. The TSA lines were consistently, ridiculously long. The shuttle from intermediate (D lot?) across from T1 is sporadic at best. You can (I know) waste 15-20 valuable minutes waitin...
St. Louis' natural, knee-jerk reaction is "No."

I would like this city (institutions/businesses/politicians/normal citizens, etc) to play Jim Carrey for a month, say 'Yes,' and see what happens.
Yeah, noticed that too.
I've driven Vandeventer every morning for the last three years. That old Phillips station is an utter and absolute eyesore, hope someone has bigger, better vision for that.
thanks!
can't wait to see the cranes during televised games!!

Here's a down & dirty rendering based off of Framer's post. Some things are wonky but I've burned enough daylight on it, need to get back to paying jobs...
Would love that in CORTEX! Anecdote—a few years ago I told a West County friend about the forthcoming TechShop. He joined and got a heartbroken text from him before it hit the news cycle. Anyway, a smart, plugged-in guy, he said, "So it's opening in CORTEX. I keep hearing about CORTEX. Where CORTEX?...
I'd like to see these running from downtown to Carbondale via DuQuoin (existing CN lines)

Unrelated but related: the ordinance is clear that if an alderman commits a malfeasance in office, bribery, a corrupt practice, or a crime, they immediately forfeit their office.
And that's not a thing right now? Am I reading that wrong?
I've always wanted a 5-story(ish) apartment building on the site of A1 Signs.
The views of downtown would be amazing!!
Rumor/urban legend I’ve heard is that the ‘jagged, rusted sculpture’ was indeed intended as the entrance to a zoo. Somewhere In Germany, I believe. But the locals (NIMBYS oder ‘Nichts aus Meines Nachbarn’) hated it and thus our zoo purhachased it at a heavily discounted price. Hmmm, now where do we ...
And the headline of the Post in a parallel dimension—

"Third teen dies falling off Forest Park entrance in latest Facebook challenge."


Oy, that has insurance liability written all over it.
As of yesterday the Y is coming down.
