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...

Looks like all the sod is in now around the new Arch entrance.

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...
I've noticed that the monthly casino numbers show that Lumiere has really been doing well lately. They've shown the most growth in revenue (compared to last year) for several months in a row. Good, maybe they can start maintaining the Glowhawk. There are (or at least were last weekend) several pane...
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.

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...
