When I rode by on Metrolink about 4pm last night there appeared to be 2 trucks and about 4 or 5 people setting up two LED strips that were on. The sun wasn't down but one was blue and one was green.
Just like the minimum wage increase, even if it did pass Greitens and the rest of the out-state legislators would roll it back/kill it.

Anyone have thoughts on how the CVS/Aetna mega-merger could impact STL? *cough* ExpressScripts?
Why am I being a Negative Nancy and guessing that in a few years we'll have empty buildings up by UMSL?
The Blues are supposedly planning to knock out part of the lower bowl for a bar/standing area that will be open to the concourse. If you've been to the United Center in Chicago it will be similar to what they have up on the corners of the 300/400 level.
Flew through T2 last Thursday. I have never seen STL so busy. Just left after a day trip and both in the morning and this evening T2 seemed far busier than I ever remember seeing. Somewhat related note, they need to increase the cost to park in the T2 garage. It is basically full nonstop midweek. I...
Those parking lots off of Springdale Ave on the southeast corner for the 170/70 interchange seem to have cars again. Wasn't that employee parking for TWA back in the heydays of the 90's and early 2000's? Who is using those lots now?
I don't think I've seen it noted here yet that there was a building permit application made on 11/17/2017 to "CONSTRUCT 29 STORY BLDG FOUNDATION ONLY ZONING ONLY PLANS" with an estimated cost of $6,184,276.00. Haven't seen it on a Board of Adjustment agenda yet, but if zoning variances are needed I...
The Rams left St. Louis. We couldn't even get the piddling little MLS. Now we don't like the Blues?

Where is the party going to be when the Cardinals are the only pro team St. Louis?
Not sure why the Post trumpeted this like it's a storefront along Euclid or a full suburban style place on Lindell.
Meanwhile, the Blues adamantly won't consider anything but the far west burbs for their practice facility development. Could it be because Maryland Heights is throwing a bunch of public tax money at them? Or would you prefer the City do the same to get the practice facility development? I'm confused.
This sucks. I know plenty of people are of the "chains are evil" school of thought. But the local Horton's franchisee was clearly aggressive with the urban location choices.

Good deal. That side of the block continuing east needs some help. Hope this is a step in wrapping up infill over there.
Yes it does and hopefully this building with expedite that.

The building going up the hills at 13th will also be nice for the streetscape.
I saw it mentioned on twitter they are using runway 6/24 a bunch today. You don't see that often. Looks like all the landings are at least by looking at flight aware. I saw that. I almost tried to get out to see if I could get some shots from a different perspective, but by the time I would have go...

Really makes one miss the days of flying non-stop to Hawaii.
But wasn't that for just a while during the TWA days?

This thread is over a decade old. Why do I get the feeling this corner is going to remain undeveloped in 2027?

^ goody. almost as exciting as a Quick Trip.
At least they're not closing or moving to the suburbs. They're staying in the city: how is this a bad thing?

Plus, what would you prefer at that corner? It's not like that corner has ever been high usage or just screams out residential.

Looks like County Metro Police have started using the East Loop building as a substation. No exterior renovations yet but there were 6-8 cars parked in the lot this morning.
Saw two cars there this afternoon. That's encouraging.
Well, as usual, public safety resources are allocated to keep suburbanites safe while visiting the city at the expense of residents. This approach has to change. We need more resources allocated to improving quality of life and keeping residents safe. Excuse the hell out of me for working downtown ...
This morning I got casually sniffed by a Malinois (I think) security dog as it walked through the train. Very happy to see the security presence on Metro lately. The odd thing is that it's always in the morning, when there are never the kinds of issues (gambling, drugs, whacked-out weirdos gyrating...
I think there's something to this actually. Pre/post game crowds in Soulard seem to be down this year. Ballpark Village Absolutely a contributor, but BPV opened in 2014. Anecdotally, just saying Soulard crowds seems down this year. But I also think the popularity of the bars west of Busch (Start Ba...
Deadspin.com: Is MLS A Ponzi Scheme? http://deadspin.com/is-mls-a-ponzi-scheme-1797509617 It all makes the long line of candidates eager to pay MLS’s ever-growing expansion fees—in 2005, you could land a franchise for a mere $10 million—a bit puzzling, says Szymanski: “Why would you buy something fo...
So how is it that there are zero short term parking spaces now at noon on a Tuesday at terminal 2. Nobody walking to cars or anything. Just lots of permanently parked Escalades and Mercedes. I think they need to double short term parking cost. Doubling would put us with big cities. Go to $30/day an...
The other day a large military jet approached from the east, towards the rarely used runway 29 and almost landed before pulling up and circling back towards the south. Anyone have an idea what that would have been about?
Due to today's storms, I saw a that a flight aborted a landing and then diverted to Mid-America, then made a quick trip back to Lambert a short while later. Anybody have any idea how often diversions to Mid-America occur? http://i.imgur.com/JnhjToN.jpg http://i.imgur.com/OwE4169.jpg Not sure. Didn'...
Anyone heard anything about Humps? I notice there's now a sign saying For Lease on the door.
