Way back in late 2016 Mike Shannon was trying to sell, and he was trying to get the height restriction lifted because he said that was making it difficult to find a buyer.

Per this article , SafeTrek is normally subscription-based, but is 100% free-to-use on Metro. SafeTrek has made similar deals with Downtown STL Inc. and Washington University in St. Louis. The app was made by MU students and St. Louis based-Cultivation Capital led their last round of funding. Here's...
The Village of Mackenzie voted to dissolve, 18-15! Another one bites the dust, for the better. Good to see. EDIT: I didn't realize there were such a small towns in South STL. I thought most of the small ones were north. Interesting. Meet these South County municipalities with 5,000 or fewer people:...
Here's a bunch more info from the Lafayette Square Neighborhood Association (I hope it's OK to share this here): http://lafayettesquare.org/wp-content/uploads/2018/03/Chouteau-Avenue-Corridor-Redevelopment.pdf unless I've missed it I still don't see anything about raw numbers on square footage, num...
Seems like the western end by Gravois, which is more residential in character and was somewhat forlorn, is seeing some steady rehabs. Anyway, it's about 1.3 miles from end to end. A magnificent mile indeed. They need to extend the pedestrian-scale lighting all the way to Gravois. The cobra head str...

It's 700 feet from home plate to the current building. However, a home run would need to be hit far enough to go much further than that since it would need to clear the Budweiser scoreboard. I would think it would need to be a 900+ foot home run to have a chance at the ground level. Dinger swings! ...
So, they got the 4,500 number by revising our population last year upwards from the ACS estimate? What the hell? Does the Census Bureau have an axe to grind with us? If they did not do that, we would not even be on the top 10 for population loss. This is a load of ****. This seems to be legitimatel...

It's not productive to stir up 'but they do it too'-type justifications, but strictly in terms of whether mosques are subjects of any type of attack there is some data there. As a couple of examples, the ACLU has a page dedicated to 'Anti-Mosque Activity' with a state-by-state breakdown of events, i...

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. Except following that logic, the Zoo sculpture, half of the sculptures outside the Art Museum, and every tree ...
I guess, I'm not good at identifying tree species. Per MSU , you can identify Ash trees by a few characteristics: They have opposite branching, i.e. twigs will sprout from both sides branches symmetrically: https://treedoctor.msu.edu/sites/default/files/inline-images/branch01.jpg They have compound...
Solar array https://farm5.staticflickr.com/4796/38925362010_42304a2620_c.jpg Nice. Not too complain....and a separate topic—with new construction, why is it so hard to plant street trees (and yard trees) in this city? That's the thing, it's really not. Property owners can go here and request that t...

One of the less successful campaigns Explore St. Louis has run, but you never know who'll respond to a thing:

So is it time to rename this subforum since there's now apparently no longer a JNEM?

So because I've been sitting on boring calls all day I decided to play. On the right is the original. On the left, now that I know the designer used the Geared font I manually scaled, rotated, and placed each letter along the arc: https://i.imgur.com/JmaAoEy.png https://pbs.twimg.com/profile_images/...
I don't really see it as a kerning problem. The kerning is fine. The width of the M is a function of the typeface, right? Altering the kerning won't change that. You could make a narrower letter, but I'd worry it would look pinched. Further, I wouldn't make the arc so tight as what you're suggestin...
The typeface doesn't thrill me, but it's not really the face that I take issue with. It's the details. This may or may not mean anything to you, but instead of typesetting the letters on a curve, a warp has been applied to create an arc. As a result, there's distortion to the letters rather than si...
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....
