Howl will probably look at other spaces near the Ballpark or Wash Ave and open up in the next few months or year. They're not closing because they didn't make money... Cordish just wants to get another of their concepts in there to keep as much money from BPV as possible. Look for more of their conc...
The next round of glass should be going up soon. The maneuverable winch equipment is on site to raise glass panels from within the building itself and they're currently adding the lowest ribbon panels on the NW corner. Look for it to start going up floor by floor at a much faster pace soon.
I have to be candid... if you don’t even know what tax incentives you need or want to make this project work, I’m extremely concerned about the reality of your financing. If you say you don’t need them to make it work, then why ask for them? And if you know you need incentives, then shouldn’t you co...
In the short term, some trees would be nice to at least create a sense of height and a street wall. Even a row of arborvitae would work.

Still no construction cams for this project?
Seriously. Although I don't recall Phase I having one, so maybe the Cardinals / Cordish just don't really care?
I think it makes perfect sense. The parking podium on that end doesn't need to go up till the end as long as they can build what's required to support the tower itself first. Plus as the crane gets higher it'll need to connect to the building at some point for stability purposes. They'll need room t...
They're still actively working on both? I drove by a few months ago and the fence was up and it looked like they had begun construction, but the site was pretty dead. My understanding was that construction was going at a snails pace, when it was happening.
Fwiw, the empty lots to the west of IKEA, between FPP and Duncan, to the east of Sarah have been getting some TLC. Looks like they've just leveled it all and will be making it into a nicer parking lot for the time being. Obviously I'm hopeful for residential to go here eventually, but cleaning up th...
Chris, do you have any financing lined up? My expectation is that they’ll want to see the numbers to determine how realistic your plan is before selling you the building. I wish you all the luck in the world, but I don’t know if they’re open to a long term phased plan without a plan that would allow...
Side note, I was fully expecting the link in the original post to be this:

The final match will be at MetLife Stadium in NJ. Keep in mind that if Chicago and Vancouver hadn't backed out from being prospective host bid cities, we probably don't even see Kansas City or Cincinnati make the cut of 23. I personally expect to see Baltimore cut (since they can combine that market...
^I'd love to see someone go in depth in the web of money, politics, and organizations... expand upon this to explain the extent of potential conflicts of interest.
It's almost certainly just for "fun" or wishful thinking. Not only would the entire state of California have to approve it, so would the US Congress and the President. From a political standpoint, depending on the demographics of the proposed new states, whoever is in control of Congress would certa...

Ever. They need to add in potholes, faded ...
They switched the parapet lighting over to blue on April 16th. It was lit up in white prior to that. I personally love it. It’ll really be cool to see it reflect off the glass of the new tower and hopefully we’ll see something similar at the top there too. Place making in Clayton to make the skyline...
My guess is it's just a straw man argument, which seems to be all the rage in current politics. Don't like being criticized or scrutinized? Just blame it on some "outside" or "adversarial" group - whether they actually exist or impact things is irrelevant. It's all about smoke screens and trying to ...
^ Cincy is a very cool city. Reminds me a lot of STL. Not sure about seeing all three in one weekend. One other (obvious) observation. Just look at an MLS city map. With Cincy in, Nashville in, CHI and KC, there is only ONE place in the Midwest, on the MLS map where there is a BIG hole. MLS has to ...
There's just not enough room for a solid fix with the site plan as is. It's packing too many stop lights and turns into a small space. The best plan, in my opinion would be to figure out how to separate the shuttles from the cars to reduce the gridlock a bit and then ideally expand out the entrance ...
I wonder what that building is in the background that appears to be 8 floors. Residential Maybe? This poster could have did away with the Black marking on it blocking out the remainder of the rendering. I am sure we will hear something about it tomorrow. Buy why would they do that? Just to show a p...
Don't quote me on this, as I didn't get a great look (due to driving on 64) but I believe Koman has a new signage with a rendering for their land at Sarah / Clayton that's facing the interstate. From the roughly 2 seconds I had to look this morning, there was a nice, all glass building for office sp...
Let’s not confuse imagination with money.

There’s plenty of us who have ideas or the desire to see these buildings saved... but (to my knowledge) none of us have millions of dollars to spare or the connections to realistically save these buildings.
Yeah, that’s just click bait. Zero chance that some of those teams would move with the brand new arenas that were just built.
Dave Peacock was on the Fastlane yesterday (ESPN Radio) and stated that the ownership group is pretty much done at this point. I don't have the exact quote, but he pretty much said they'd be open if the city came to them with more tax dollars, but that they don't expect that to happen. There is no c...
Why would the Cardinals want this building, other than to control more land directly around the ballpark?
I'm still completely confused by the locations of the foundations they've drilled and poured thus far. I looked up the bentonite process and that makes sense... but I agree. This one just feels like they're going at a really really slow pace.
