An uncared-for midcentury beauty. Curved balconies. Glass corner windows. 5522 Delmar across from future Delmar Divine. Vacant now -- but renovation coming. BB #223.

Detroit already got feedback and the primary reason was due to shortage of talent; basically said they were on the right track but still weren't there yet to make the cut. But Nashville does? BTW, IMO the Hustle video had some great visuals but the talking... OMG, blah blah blah. Imagine having to ...
People do realize that killing someone is considered a bad thing and is also against the law, correct? Regardless of "conditions" taking another human's life when it's not self-defense has to register in someone's conscience as bad, and unlawful. you can tell people to stop committing crimes until ...
^ yeah i noticed that too. wow... if they did hit a major snag that's really really going to suck.
^ not yet. it's very apparent from the parkway that they're still working on it. it's a huge building.
^^94+% of the homicides in the city last year were committed by firearm. 191 of 203 deaths. Guns are the problem when it comes to homicide in America. There is a very simple solution to fix the VAST majority of criminal deaths in the country. It is ignored because it is a convenient rallying point ...
please explain in detail how the stats verify that the A-A community, as a whole, endorses "thugocracy". this should be entertaining...
There was an African-American gentleman on KMOX yesterday discussing the crime epidemic in STL. He largely places the blame on the A-A community for endorsing "thugocracy". Being a thug in some parts of the A-A community is endorsed and celebrated. Not sure how one black guy on the radio somehow sp...

Why are we going backwards?
because we've allowed poverty to fester for decades, our mayor is useless, our police force is corrupt, and the rest of the state likes to watch us burn.
Bids to be sought for MetroLink security analysis The East-West Gateway Council of Governments plans to begin the search for a firm to conduct a security analysis of the MetroLink system. sigh... more studies! it sometimes feels like regional leaders use studies to indefinitely kick the can down th...
Prop 2 was seeking approval to redirect the use tax ($4 million or so) to fund the stadium and other smaller economic development projects. Voters said no, therefor all the NEW use tax money SHOULD go to the original public services. right, and people read this and go "see! it would have been paid ...

What gives?
thought i read somewhere that it's owned by a trucking company. they just use the lot for parking but don't give a f*** about the building.
^ i’ll 2nd the @tonymess suggestion.
^ :shock: did he have a weapon? i'm surprised nobody else on the train was packing.

this city needs a purge on multiple levels...
I'm of a bit different mind on waging national campaigns; we need to do more work first on our own locals. Heck, having junkers like Joe Buck out there essentially saying our city sucks without more sports ball palaces reflects a mindset that needs to be killed. Things like that KMOV Saint Louis Pr...
These additions feel so awkwardly forced that it cripples the aesthetic of both old and new together. subjective, i know, but i like the aesthetic (though it doesn't always work). I don't think anyone ever said it cant be done, of course it can be done but at what cost i was more referring to havin...
Fodors Travel inclues Missouri with Taj Mahal and Great Wall as one of top 10 places in the world to avoid. They criticize actions of Jeff City, but then use a photo of St. Louis. Thank you Jeff City. https://www.fodors.com/news/photos/fodors-no-list-2018 yep, as usual St. Louis is the face of all ...
Just came across yet another example of a modern tower soon to rise out of a preserved, historic building in Milwaukee: https://6803l1jplwe1s1hjp4dfnjlb-wpengine.netdna-ssl.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/01/Mason-Rendering-400x291.jpg https://www.biztimes.com/2017/industries/hospitality-tourism/develop...
"Gateway Arch National Expansion Memorial" would make the most sense since that's what it is.
What a complete load of garbage.... A website called Economic Hardship is going to try to look for any data that supports what it's trying to sell. And they don't have data that correlates the causation. they also didn't argue causation. they said inequality predicts homicide rates--as in there's a...

I don't understand the fascination with cities like Nashville, Austin, and Denver.
Agreed, but I think Denver is in a different league than Nashville and Austin. It feels like a big city. I just think it's ugly, mountains notwithstanding. And as of last census it's overtaken us.
^ well, yeah. we're talking about municipalities on the order of 1000 people (many of which were created for the sole purpose of fostering segregation) versus a city of 300K with the infrastructural legacy of nearly a million. the direction of consolidation seems pretty obvious.
In DC, you are charged up until you redock the bike... Right, which is why I like the docks—the user has incentive (i.e. penalties) to return it to the appropriate place. How is such a thing accomplished with dockless? Like, how do they penalize me if I just drop my bike in the middle of the street...
great news. we're long overdue for bike share. i'm not sold on the dockless systems though. the docks offer consistency and organization. my concern with no docks is that bikes are going to be haphazardly abandoned all over the place. are there penalties in place to prevent users from leaving a bike...
