jbacott, thanks. I agree, it's a very interesting discussion.

The Market at McKnight in Rock Hill is another example (though I wish they'd allow for street-facing entrances: https://goo.gl/maps/vHaaaWtqy1S2 ^ Honestly something like that would be a great thing for Hampton Village, not that I think it'll happen. I really don't think Lucky's or Stein Mart faces ...
Ah, so "home" = a studio, and not the building, thanks. The outside shot in the background confused me a bit; didn't look like it was a shot from their current building, but I couldn't make it out exactly.

@NewscastStudio tweeted out this this morning:

And a bigger look at the tweeted image:

So does anyone know where and/or when they're planning to move?

It should be noted, too, that height regulations are every bit as negotiable as taxes. If Amazon comes in and says 'we want to locate 15,000 new high-paying jobs in a 700' tower in the CBD (not very likely at all, but not impossible), the mayor's office and board of alderman can absolutely grant exe...
Nice design for the Denver building. One day, we will have something taller than the arch. Probably not. Is there any truth to the height limit? There is a 300' height limit east of Broadway that runs from PSB to Lumiere Place. Beyond that, there are density limits downtown but no actual height lim...

I will be so happy if Rawlings finally capitalizes on this obvious opportunity. And not just moving their offices here - they should have some sort of Rawlings Store open any time BPV is as well as an 'experience' attraction . Off the top of my head: • Have a small glove-making or bat station and l...
NIMBPV? I kid... :mrgreen: -RBB I just got accused of being a nimby? That's hilarious. I'm just saying that the single biggest comment about the new stadium was how much people enjoyed the view of downtown. Dominating that view with one tower just seems short sighted and not the route I would have ...
Am I the only one concerned about Arch views from the ballpark? This will obviously block a great view for a lot of fans, especially those sitting north of the 3rd base line. I understand that they want to give apartments views of home plate but I'd still prefer towers elsewhere and mid-rise buildi...
I'm envisioning Serra's version of a rusty Schoemehl pot plopped down in the middle of the road. Richard Callow tells me on Twitter that this is a sculpture that will be at or below grade that you will drive over. Interesting. Hard to oppose it as it shouldn't obstruct any views. I'm curious to see...

Did I see somewhere that 3 floors were added? Now 39 stories? EDIT: found it https://twitter.com/presbyterianstl/status/902197446717173760 It's mentioned on the last page of this thread. Framer was the first to notice a story in the P-D from June was revised. The initial version of the story said i...
Some more info on the Incentives given to WOW Air have been brought to light by the P-D's Along for the Ride : To help get Wow Air to begin the regular flights from St. Louis to Iceland that were announced last week, local officials pledged $800,000 in marketing incentives plus a waiver of 18 months...
@rbb We don't have viglink turned on (and I'm not seeing that link changed) lemme know if you still are seeing that as a redirect. Also of note: we're on phpbb3.2.1 now.

So, coupla things... That 'site randomly logs me out while browsing' thing I mentioned upthread seems to be back... I've been kicked out twice in the last two days. Also, I'm not sure if the site does this automatically or not, but it seems that some of the links to outside articles are being conver...
Some news, albeit nothing earth-shattering: http://stlouis.cbslocal.com/2017/08/03/big-plans-for-union-station-aquarium/ In short, schematics are done and PGAV is now drawing up construction plans. The shark tank will be "spectacular". And they say the St. Louis Aquarium will be the most interactive...
It also looks like the local concept restaurant by E33 is back out for bid. They must not have liked the initial bids. The bidders responded to the bid request with questions, which are answered on an addendum published yesterday . It's not back out for bid so much as it's reissued with clarificati...

COMING SOON .........or so it says. Indianapolis-based Pearl Companies has a placeholder for a new $50M, 220-unit residential project for St. Louis on its WEBSITE (or go to 'Portfolio'). Where in St. Louis would this go? I don't know. It doesn't say. Pearl Companies is the firm responsible for the ...
