Due to an expected increase in international traffic, the Customs Conveyor System located in the International Arrivals area of Terminal 2 is being replaced. Completion is expected in the spring of 2018. More announcements coming soon? Maybe (hopefully), but at first glance I'd say that's most likel...
Washington Ave isn't coming back So... It's "peak" in (what?) 2005-to-2010 was the best it'll ever be? Really??? That's depressing. Sorry, not talking about the 'Washington Avenue district' losing significance or appeal, I meant the literal physical stretch of Wash Ave that ran parallel to the Eads...
I've said it before but since Lumiere isn't going anywhere and Washington Ave isn't coming back, reestablishing Lucas Ave as a public street between 2nd and Memorial would go a long way to addressing the Landing's current ingress/egress issues. And it wouldn't even cost Drury (who currently owns the...
Well, there was this from just over a month ago: FWIW, the West End Word's construction roundup lists the One Hundred at 38 stories, and 400 feet. http://www.westendword.com/Articles-News-c-2017-12-11-202674.114137-sub28365.114137-Residential-Retail-Projects-Continue-To-Multiply-In-Central-West-End....
So nobody's confirmed yet how many stories or units this thing's gonna have?

The December numbers are have been posted. Up 3% for the month https://www.flystl.com/uploads/documents/public-notices-and-reports/2017DecRptPubRel.pdf Sidenote: If we are up 4.4% next year we will have our highest level since 2003 (which was right before a big pulldown in 2004) I know I'm being su...
^ honestly, there is a significant portion of our population that intentionally drives recklessly. the only things that will stop it are physical barriers (which will look like sh*t and will need constant repair) and enforcement. can somebody remind me why our red light/speeding cameras got taken a...
Cessna 402 Utiliner - That's a tiny plane. Is that private flights (which I thought mostly went out of Spirit of St. Louis or Downtown St. Louis airports) or is that a work-horse for Cape Air? Also, was there a point when Delta briefly surpassed AA? For some reason I thought they had. You remember ...
From the Amazon RFP Not sure when we got Etihad Airlines here...... Whoever proof read this thing did not do a good job. https://preview.ibb.co/k0p2Bw/Capture.png Huh, interesting: https://flights.etihad.com/en/flights-to-st-louis Looks like they're not direct; Flights into STL today are via a code...
I suppose it's folly to propose a property swap? Give the current current owner of the 7th St garage the title to the 9th St garage and some cash for his troubles and have the LCRA/CVC take over the 7th St garage in return? Owner still gets money from a garage (albeit at a slightly less premium loca...
What kind of off-roading are you looking for, specifically? I assume from your question re: winches that you're talking about 4x4 Jeeps/Trucks/SUVs, not necessarily ATVs or dirt bikes, yes? Are you looking for wooded trails, rock crawling, sand dunes or something else? Re: the winches: yeah Warns ar...
Hey, nice! I suppose the restoration of the cornice from the picture I posted back in 2015 (!) is too much to hope for, yes? Not holding my breath, but it's not terribly elaborate and IMO makes a big aesthetic difference.

Let's hope the Nashville developer down the street gets that lot rolling quickly. That will have unimpeded views of the field from floors 6? and up. Could build a parking podium up to the height of the stadium and go from there. Does anyone know off-hand what restrictions regarding height are in pl...

Very interesting concept, though there's a long way to go yet before any dirt (pavement?) is turned as they don't have financing lined up yet. I wonder if they're working with the city yet? And I'd be curious to hear the input of folks who are around there regularly like robertn and biglargemchuge (...
I guess my dreams of seeing the city's third-best Ferris Wheel here will go unfulfilled... :D I absolutely hate the name. But everything else about it is nice. Really nice. I understand this is a preliminary rendering - I say don't change a thing about it unless it's the name or maybe adding a third...
The old Drunken Fish building is changing quite a bit. A Korean fushion restaurant, called Kimchi Guys, will open on the first floor. A coffee shop, called Miss Java, will also open on the first. Lastly for the first floor, a smaller event space, called KOR, will open. The space will seat 125 insid...
Are you suggesting I'm wordy? ;-) Sorry. i have to confess I'm guilty as charged. If anyone else complains, I'll fight them. Nah, I think you're pretty well appreciated around here. Also... DELETE THE SUB-QUOTES. This is really bad. That article (which was already too large of a resolution) got quo...
Always room for expansion. Yeah, that's what I'm thinking. It's a bit disappointing it isn't opening with more exhibition space, but if looking at the floorplans there's lots of non-actuated real estate; the old Hooters/Houlihans space isn't filled at all, for example. There's plenty of room for ex...

That bulldozer operator must have had the most satisfying demo of their life.
I'm going with 'Washington Avenue Skybridge Wrecking Ball Operator', but this one's up there.

KMOX has new renderings of the Aquarium. Click through to see 'em all, but here are a couple of the more interesting ones: 1st and 2nd floor floorplans! https://cbsstlouis.files.wordpress.com/2017/11/75976-10_sdc_fl1_rendered_plan_20170823.jpg https://cbsstlouis.files.wordpress.com/2017/11/75976-10_...
And you and the Post Dispatch are more reliable? i think if the PD had made an error with the 39 number they would have corrected it by now, so i'm going with 39. Again, this was all covered pages ago in this thread, but for what it's worth the 39 stories was the correction. This story put out on t...
Yeah, I'll add my voice to the others here and say how much we appreciate your engagement here, Mr Sarimsakci. This is a rare and very much appreciated treat to interact directly with a developer in a public forum like this. Whether or not we agree with every decision or method, nobody can say you h...
