This may have been asked before, but is the One Hundred going to take up all the space between Pine and Lindell or are they developing both parking lots. Someone feel free to correct where the eastern edge of the site lies. https://farm5.staticflickr.com/4630/39623948585_ba9bc5241c.jpg Untitled-1 b...
Anyone know how to get "Yes on 1 & 2" yard signs?
^ Also, this could mark the point that KC passes us as a major league city... Chiefs, Royals and Sporting KC vs. Cards and Blues We'll get the MLS soon enough, I believe. Then consider that the NFL will be a shell of itself in 20 years, and I'd say we'll be just fine. Agreed. Now if we could just g...

He's got the loud voices on his side (Goodell, Grubman, Jerry Jones), but we might underestimate the fact that many of the other owners just don't like Kronke for: - Bucking the ownership rules - Moving ahead to LA on his own - Paying for his own stadium without much public help (sets a bad preceden...
But I do hope they are allowed to leave rather than being forced to come back here unwillingly for another cruel year or two before they move elsewhere. My dream is that that the Rams lose the vote and are forced to come back here. Then Peacock and the city wad up the stadium plan and tell him to s...
The 700 million would have only guaranteed 10 more years in lease agreements from the Rams. A lot of blame is placed on the "Top Tier" clause of the lease, but as this has played out it seems irrelevant... Stan has stars in his eyes and we would be in the same position in 10-years. If Sta...

Aerotropolis, the Lambert Air Cargo Hub?
Good stuff. I wonder how the Connecticut decline compared to the nation as a whole during that period. Overall, that was a significant period of improvement for the country, so the 40% might not be that impressive.
Really? A lot of social media stuff against the stadium has been coming out, but it has been from a relatively small number of alderman and only two of them were on the committee.

I think you can expect same from the full board.
They bought them in California. The FBI search of the apartment turned up invoices from internet gun shops in TX and KY. Although they have not verified those were the guns used. http://www.latimes.com/local/lanow/la-me-ln-fbi-20151204-story.html?utm_source=dlvr.it&utm_medium=twitter&dlvrit...
Just read this interesting article about the city of Manchester, England... a down on its luck old industrial city in a less appealing part of the country with a couple of notable sports teams. The city is not too much larger than St. Louis and the metro is also somewhat similar in size. The city is...
It is awful, it sticks out like a sore thumb and completely ruins the view of the arch from the Old Courthouse. My office overlooks the Old Courthouse and there a six, now seven flagpoles with American flags within my direct view. So, apparently we needed one more. Think again, Steve Patterson tweet...
matt, what has declined, specifically? The 80's strip mall hasn't seen any improvement, so it has just generally aged and looks worse than it did 15 years ago. And same with the other buildings, there is has just been a lack of investment at that corner, so the appearance and condition continues to...
I lived there in the mid- to late-90s and loved it. We doubled our money on that condo purchase when we moved out. Looking back I wish we had kept it. The residential buildings have improved a great deal since then, but I think the corner of Pershing and DeBaliviere has noticeably declined. The good...
^^ Well put. You see these neighbor vs. neighbor articles from time to time. But, what stuck out to me was the part where they question how she could afford the house. If it was two white neighbors facing off would that even be brought up as an issue? Just another way of say she doesn't belong here,...
Some perspective...

The City's budget is $1.0 billion, so $6 million is 0.6% of the budget. If you made $100,000 a year and bought Starbucks each work morning for year it would actually be a slightly higher portion of your annual budget.

Pretty honest and unflattering view of St. Louis in this week's episode of This American Life. Yes, it is St. Charles, but they never say it and I'm not sure it would be much different elsewhere in St. Louis (or most of suburban America). And, they briefly try to make this point. But it is "St....
In a balanced league like the NFL an average (.500) team will be in contention for a playoff spot roughly every other year with meaningful games most of the year in most years. I think most Rams fans including casual fans deciding whether or not to go to the game would love a .500 team at this point...
Not reveling in other place's issues: but Minnesota is having problems nailing down the MLS. http://www.startribune.com/major-league-soccer-plans-on-holding-to-july-1-deadline-for-stadium-plan-to-be-approved/307398531/ Perhaps they are having second thoughts since STLFC beat them in the US Cup.

I thought this was a very interesting article from the perspective of someone who reluctantly moved to the suburbs for schools.

Confessions from a Cul-de-Sac
About the St. Mary's Infirmary (on Papin) does anyone know if there have been any redevelopment proposals for it in recent years? And also when it closed? I'd love to see that thing renovated. There was a plan and LIHTC application for the St. Mary's Infirmary to convert it to senior apartments pre...

Garcia? Are they they developer, Realtor or both? I want to ask why the difference. This stretch of Lafayette has a lot of potential. I like the condos/townhomes at the corner of Lafayette and Compton. They are rehabs with a modern touch (also Garcia I think). But I drive by this everyday and saw it...
