If one were to build an MLS stadium outside the city, what are the best sites? I looked at Google maps and keyed on the large parking lot on the South side of Galleria at 64 and 170. Galleria could construct another parking structure on the North or East side to make up for the lost parking. That l...
I actually don't hate that the Imo's sticks out a bit from it's neighbors. For 750k they probably should just build a whole new structure. However I think they could do something way cooler for cheaper: Reminds me of Dat Dog down in New Orleans, the Freret area reminds me a bit of MorganFord even. T...

Seems the lawsuit is gonna be resolved?
23 homes demolished, 300k+ price tags, and full tax abatement. Ridiculous.
That's a gorgeous old Midtown landmark. Look forward to seeing more activity in and around it. Had some friends live there this last year. As far as I could tell the apartments were pretty much full. Also the barber shop/other little retail spots around there were active. The old Dante's/Club Lit i...

The new car dealerships have completely killed any of the possible desirability of that location as a decent place to live, IMO.
Yup. As if they've never been to Ballwin.
A question for airline enthusiasts. A quick google search says the local Bosnian population to be around 70k. What would that need to be/what would need to happen for a STL to Sarejevo direct? Seeing Sarejevo doesn't have a direct flight to anywhere in the Americas I would assume it would have to b...

New logo sucks. We need a petition!

I also think overall, EWR is the preferred NY area airport for STL travelers.
Have you ever been to Newark?!?
Connecting from Europe this summer, hands down worst airport experience I've ever had. Soooooo many pigeons in the tiny, gross concourses.
This is why my biggest wish for Lambert is to move the security checks for A B and C up to the top level. That would be a logisitical nightmare. The entire lower level cannot be made airside -- baggage claim, where passengers can access items legal in checked bags but not legal for carry on, would ...
With D I wonder if all the gates would be reused anyway due to either need for shops and restaurants where there isn't space otherwise or gates that can't accommodate 737 sized aircraft. The two I would like to see JetBlue add are Boston (because Southwest's prices are crazy) and JFK because we don...
This complex would've been nice at the 40/Hanley interchange. Good for perceptions seeing Alfa Romeo/Porsche and then Mercedes at Hampton as people drive into the city.
Olive Blvd could be very interesting, extremely diverse population but this proposal stinks!
The worst of speculation has been done through public policy/double standards: Mckee, LRA, and SLU. Less rules not more are the answer. Give everyone the same chance. Keep everyone accountable, not just the little guys.
Shaw Park deserves its own 5th avenue along Brentwood.
Exciting news! I always thought it foolish to tear down for a parking structure.

All this Lambert history has me wondering, did the airport ever have an observation deck?
Good urbanism, terrible architecture. Something in this location deserves much more creativity and style! A 20-25 story signature tower on the corner would be ideal, at least as "daring" as Park East. Clayton's high standard of architectural design is quickly slipping.
What a b****. I hate anti-growth, anti-progressive, job crushers like her. I would love to know if she's a St. Louis-area native or did she move to St. Louis from the backwoods of Missouri. These people help to keep St. Louis stuck in 1904. There's nearly $800-million being invested with this proje...

^ Yep, there's already an underpass there to get you between the useful corners of the intersection.


I'd disagree. I bet there are more people crossing NW corner to SW corner than NE to SW. And it's not a true underpass, at least not an efficient one.
I've always thought an underpass at Skinker and FPP makes a ton of sense. I know the Metro station acts as a defacto underpass from the NE corner to the SW corner but a true underpass connecting all 4 corners would greatly improve the intersection for both pedestrians and motorists. Does anyone know...

Re:

How about 2nd location of the Blues City Deli? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk I like this idea. Also I know Sweetie Pie's has been having troubles the last couple years but a more hip, modern Sweetie Pie's would be cool here. Something with some St. Louis Soul for all the misguided tourists who...
Can someone list some other developments/proposals around town that have gotten similar types of abatement? I know the Centene complex got an anticipated $75 million over 25 years. And I can personally remember that Brentwood Promenade got about $22 million in TIF, but I think that's a different str...
Andrew Puzder, Washu Law grad who brought St. Louis Hardee headquarters and then took it with him to income tax free TN, has been nominated by Trump to be labor secretary.
