This is pretty good news, especially since all three (well Clayton and RH) are inner-ring and would be considered city neighborhoods in most other urban areas.
I was going to say the same thing. In most other metro areas Clayton and Richmond Height would just be neighborhoods.
I have zero confidence this gets built. You can already hear the NIMBYs and BANANAs freaking out.

I'm kind of curious how Arch Madness (which will be Mar 1-4) will draw now that Wichita State left the MVC... they brought a horde of folks to town.
Wichita State left: that's gonna hurt. Creighton leaving was also a bad hit.

They just moved the HQ to Chicago so I doubt they'd pack it up again to move to StL. Having a Chicago HQ is all about vanity.

Honestly, I worry they'd gut StL.
Of course they'll gut St. Louis. Even with the new building it feel like they are toast.

I used to spend about $60 every 3 months at teavana. Switching from coffee to tea every morning significantly improved my blood pressure.

If anyone can recommend a local loose leaf tea store I’d appreciate it.
Shop local. My wife likes this place in Maplewood.
I was going to say the same thing and was wondering why South Broadway/Carondelet-Patch got left off the poll? That area was going to be my vote. I would vote South Broadway-Carondelet-Patch as well. I left The Patch off because of some of the reasons listed above earlier. I would LOVE to see this ...
I drove through Dogtown tonight and (other than Manchester Road) I guess I'm missing the empty houses, shuttered businesses plus vacant lots that would allow for explosive growth. Seems like a good solid neighborhood that other than the Clayton and Graham lot that's getting the Fields Foods building...
When talking about Dogtown I'm shocked that nobody is discussing Manchester Rd between McCausland and Hampton. Outside of the new building with the Fields Foods I'm not sure what else there is to do in the Clayton/Tamm intersection area. To the west on Manchester Road you've got Maplewood doing a da...
Agree with The Landing. It has all the fundamentals - retail, office, culture/history, cool location next to the Arch and river, even has a regional draw in Lumiere (love it or hate it). What it doesn't have is probably its biggest asset - high crime. ONSTL, Hyde Park, even Fox Park will always bat...
What about South Broadway/Carondelet-Patch neighborhood? I think there was an article in the RFT a few months ago where they specifically mentioned trying to be the next Grove I was going to say the same thing and was wondering why South Broadway/Carondelet-Patch got left off the poll? That area wa...
Now it will be the end of February.

I noticed all the cities in the Amazon 20 cities were capitals or megametros except one. Pittsburgh. Capitals include: Columbus, Indy, Denver, DC(3), Austin, Nashville, Atlanta, Boston, & Raleigh. And biggest metros: Dallas, LA, NY(2), Miami, Chicago, Philly, Toronto. Pittsburgh doesn’t fit either ...
Personally, I'd like to see the whole site redeveloped as an extension of the Moorelands. Multiple mid-rise apartment buildings with underground parking, built by multiple developers, with York Drive extended through to Hanley. StLToday is saying a new developer is building a senior care center. So...
Assuming Alamo House is indeed the movie theater that's coming in for Phase 2, is that enough of a differential from say Moolah and Chase to keep everyone in biz and happy? I do see AH being sort of a destination theater bringing people in from a wider area compared to the others in the city.. Yeah...
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.
