From AirlineGeeks.com: The Near Death and Resurrection of St. Louis International Airport Airline hubs are generally not the kind of place that change much in terms of service. In the United States, given the last decade of consolidation among airlines, most hub airports will likely stay hubs for th...
Of course, had they gone with a modern car this wouldn't be an issue...

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 ...

My brother and his friend drove to Chicago for a flight to Asia earlier this year (Because of price). Two other friends drove to Chicago for a flight to Europe this year (because of price). I would be curious to know how much they really saved after gas, parking. Also, my companies CEO (lives in Eu...
Hmmm...this is interesting. The Post ran a correction today to an earlier article about One Hundred. The correction states that the tower will be 39 stories, as opposed to the 36 previously reported. Here's the revised story. They've added floors and residences, per this: Proposed 39-story Central ...
Help from the state on it's way: Missouri Highway Patrol troopers will soon be patrolling interstates in St. Louis as part of a 90-day pilot program to free up city police officers to focus on violent crime. Between 20 and 30 troopers will be assigned to the special detail, which will focus on the ...
Though I will say, I need to ask my friend Birgit precisely what a "scrum master" is. I believe that's her current job title, actually. And her description is the only place I'd previously seen it. Sounds like it belongs on a rugby field. (Or would that be a pitch?) A scrum master is a Project Mana...

China Tests a "train" that runs on a virtual track. Could this be a solution here? Maybe a compromise between BRT and street running light rail?

Not bad, if I do say so, (though admittedly cropped and color-enhanced) for a cell phone shot taken through the glass of a car moving across the PSB:

As for making opening up more C gates, that seems to heavily imply some need for it in the not too distant future. One other possibility is that Alaska might need to add a 2nd gate since I looked Google flights they are still having the new San Diego Service at almost the same time as the Portland ...
I think the thing to note is comparing those 90s numbers and today, is what is the traffic in each case once you strip out connecting traffic. Mainly is the local origin and destination traffic higher now than then? If I had to guess its overall not much different, mainly since a lot of people were...

a new 923 Locust wouldn't be 'lonely town homes in the middle of a city's CBD'. i didn't mean lonely in the sense that there is no other residential around, but that there are no other similarly scaled single-family residences around. if this were a larger development, or if there were other cluste...
The growth has been about a year and a half consistent and often strong growth. Wonder if some of the growth was lessened last month with the terrible weather at the end, since it would be interesting to know if some months were a bit off one way or the other due to difference in number of cancella...
Great pics! Thanks for sharing.

I'm always amazed at what a fantastic job Forest Park Forever has done with our park; it really is beautiful. Another thing that strikes me is how people seem to feel safe in FP. Even in the evening hours, you see single women, elderly folks, etc. out walking, running and just relaxing. What an ama...
Agreed. It seems FPSE/The Grove is gathering quite a collection of modern midrises and homes; that's a very good thing.
