This should be in the St. Louis County thread. Was sorry to see that they anticipate only 12 residents for the project. I'd like to see more dense, walkable projects in Downtown K'wood. I know 12 residents doesn't seem like much but the condos are 500-800k! Also developer pre-sold the entire buildi...

^That's the intersection of Jefferson & Broadway. Jefferson on the left, Broadway on the right, looking North and slightly east.
Wow I drive by there every few weeks and that was totally unrecognizable. Thanks for sharing!
Horrendous, atrocious, inexplicable!

Wabashdo you know what intersection that is in the second picture?
The sports commision is a joke. We should have an NCAA football kickoff weekend. SEC/Big10/Big12/American/C-USA/MAC. Turn Laclede's Landing into one big host. Concerts and games and almost a spring break vibe. 6+ groups of fans all in town for one weekend. Could also do a FCS/Div 2 weekend concurre...
Watching the conference championship games in the new Atlanta Dome, Jerry Dome in Dallas, and Lucas Oil in Indy. All have their lids closed. All have very very bright lights — like daytime whereas our dome always preferred the dim look. Is there no use for our dome for football right in the middle ...
I agree with your point about needing more/better amenities in T2, but you must have really not been paying attention or looking very hard. There is a Chilis and a Vino Vino basically right across from the Food court area with the Dunkin Doughnuts. Then on either end of the main terminal there are ...
Interesting to note is the ongoing beef between this guy and the Total Access guy. Didn't it all start because Saggar was calling out Total Access for offering way too many services, pushing the costs way up? Between this plan and TA tearing down the Jon Paul building in Richmond Heights, I know whi...
I believe such a switch would already have occurred. Considering the life of the structure, I would say in 10 years, St Louis will be looking at constructing a new terminal building. I know someone here posted a new linear T1 from A to C and B would act like a central security point/food court. If ...
Too lazy/busy to look it up, how many gates does SW have in STL vs what's being planned in KC? What's the gate breakdown by concourse here? What's keeps STL c.p.e so damn high? How can we be more than a brand new airport in DEN?! What's going on in concourse b? Thank you for all the help! https://w...
Too lazy/busy to look it up, how many gates does SW have in STL vs what's being planned in KC?

What's the gate breakdown by concourse here?

What's keeps STL c.p.e so damn high? How can we be more than a brand new airport in DEN?!

What's going on in concourse b?

Thank you for all the help!
Really hope this happens. Anyone know the last time there was a hospital downtown?
^ I agree... I just imagine an alternate universe where shops like this line WashAve and we have a really vibrant downtown full of residents and workers and shoppers and visitors. Everything is so spread out that don't really have a truly walkable, dense live/work/play node in the city. Or even jus...
All a big waste. Could easily have been an interesting restaurant/retail/art/creative space for a few years now. Would've loved a byrd&barrel right there.
Signs been up for a little bit. Took over the Kit&Ace spot.
^All good, I did post them at max resolution so I could scale that back but it appears to work fine in chrome. The detail on the brick-work is very refreshing to see. The end of the building facing FPP does have the Citizens Park vibe continuing through it. I personally enjoy the building's North f...
I've seen the Explore St. Louis video from last year circulating around social media lately to help rev up the #Amazon2STL I saw a rough cut of the bid video. Narration by Jon Hamm. Lots of great shots of STL and architecture. I would give it a 6 or 7. Lots of shots of FoodRoof, Urban Chestnut, a c...
They said the US had lost of lot of skill in making small condo buildings that almost look like large houses from the outside, but serve as a nice affordable transition from business buildings to single family. And it can increase density of folks living near downtown. Like 75% of Ucity? Interestin...
I agree, but I think it's also evidence that in the eyes of the rest of the country, St. Louis is pretty much dismissed as a real contender (the recent Inc. and NYTimes editorials not withstanding, obviously). I've seen the Explore St. Louis video from last year circulating around social media late...
Over the last couple years I've noticed that the LED lights they installed during the renovations are rarely on whenever I fly. Am I just really unlucky or have they stopped using them?
^ ??? i think the proposals that are currently being put together by the STL Eco Devo partnership are a whole lot better than nothing. i think they're actually going to be pretty damn good. not sure why/how you think a random group of urbanstl readers are going to put together something realistic/p...
A couple ideas I had..... 1. A amzn2STL grassroots demonstration/event. Maybe a couple food trucks, some music, and some speeches by our biggest city boosters. Even if it only draws a couple hundred people it would be good publicity as something home grown and authentic. 2. An UrbanSTL alternative p...
Not STL related, but I had the opportunity to fly Spirit today ORD-LGA. That airline is trash. They can stay FAR away from St. Louis. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Never flown but had a relative recently post a big facebook rant about Spirit and not refunding their flight to St. Thomas during ...

At 3:10 now. late notice but letting you know

Summary of what they said?
2026 WC announced 49 venues across US/Canada/Mexico. Out of the 37 venues in USA, STL is snubbed. Really pathetic how badly our civic leadership has failed. The fact that KC, Cinci, Denver, Cleveland, Indy, even Green Bay making the initial list over Saint Louis is absolutely embarrassing. http://sb...
