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?

Sorry about that.

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.

This smells fishy. Four random, lonely town homes in the middle of the CBD... I can imagine examples of preexisting town houses surrounded by newer high rise development, but I can't think of any examples where a handful of town houses has been squeezed into the middle of a city's CBD. Well, to be ...
April numbers are up. Up 6.8% on the month 6.9% on the year. Nice. http://www.flystl.com/uploads/documents/public-notices-and-reports/STL_April2017_ATAS.pdf Yes, very nice to see a continued uptick in volume. Hopefully it can be sustained for a while. For comparison: Pittsburgh's numbers are up 6% ...
So you know Lambert has two terminals. Did you know that there was at one point plans for a third? This is totally stolen from here , for the record. In it, he shows that the W1W airport expansion built not because of a projected increase in flights, but because of the "crippling effect of bad weath...

This weekend has been one of the worst to my knowledge for the whole Metropolitan Area Oof. And what a wonderful Grand Opening welcome for the Schuchards.

*Takes a deep breath* - A few things... Firstly, these aren't all "sh*tty, 100 year old trolleys". The ones purchased from Portland are vintage replicas built in the 90's. Those are what's currently being tested on the street, I believe. The third car expected to be used is a Melbourne W2, one of th...
According to document 18 they plan cut new windows into the west wall for 3rd-floor apartments. These would sit lower than the current roofline of 923. So if they're planning to build anything at all on the corner it'd be 1-story at best. My completely uneducated, speculative, rather cynical guess i...
