^ obviously Seattle is not in the running... haha. A comment like that does call into question the article overall but I do take the commentary seriously. I do think that other cities would happily use our reputation against us when making their case. If St. Louis is not able to create a convincing ...
^out of curiosity, which building....?
Love the front doors.

I think they should cover the brick between that doesn't match the historic structure with some kind of signage.
Really think a shoe store at retail level would be great, although anything in the garment realm would make me happy. Also not sure about the proposed name "The Last". I get the idea is to reference a shoe term in the name given the buildings original purpose, but i just don't like how it sounds and...
St. Louis is the most westerly eastern city and the most northerly southern city. I prefer to think of it as the most southerly northern city. Not sure who told you it was southern. I take offense at that kind of thing. ;-) (But the most westerly eastern part seems about right. With St. Charles bei...

^edit state fair is in Sedalia not Centralia. My bad.
^Not to be a nay sayer but why do it then. Why not just double down on Fair St. Louis and be done with it. Make Fair St. Louis last a week instead of 4 days. Seems easier than organizing and marketing a whole new festival which if successful will likely displace many of the fee to enter ones using w...
^I hate this article. St. Louis is not some burnt out hell hole. Yes it has problems but i don't want to (and i don't think we could) win this on a pity vote. It is our ability to hand them the keys to a effectively move in ready office building for the 1st 5000 workers that makes us competitive. It...
Odd thought i had with the new runway. is looking at how the land is assembled, could some of it be used as a right of way to extend metrolink towards Earth City? since the parcels that were bought could take it most of the way there without difficulty. I suspect they will announce this as the next...
IMHO St. Louis has plenty of free events. (Fair St. Louis, Mardi Gras, Shakespeare in the Park, etc...) Also Soulard Ocktoberfest, Heritage Fest, Loufest, and the Missouri State Fair all charge admission. Keep it modest and discounted for children but no need for it to be free. Especially if the int...
I don't think it should be free, but it should be modestly priced. 10-15 dollars would be very reasonable.
^You are right for the now I think, but 2025 isn't really so far off. If you want to be ready to stick shovels in the ground then then you have to start conceptualizing now. Which is really all this conversation is about. I don't think too many of us would expect to see much dramatic change in how t...
My take is at some point Southwest is going to demand more out of STL sooner than later. Pure speculation, but I wouldn't be surprised in back room conversations that the team behind MCI new terminal is pitching Southwest constantly & the obvious choice is shift STL operations west. No one plays ni...
The biggest problem i see for Terminal 2 is that the security checkpoint gets jammed up. Especially in the mornings when the sunrise shines through those big glass windows to blind me. My solution would be to build additions to the terminal to the east and west on those little grassy patches. The ad...
If Amazon really is serious about the need for a 500K-1M sq. ft. building ready for 2019 I think the only place this could go is downtown.... frankly, our empty real estate is the only thing that even makes us have a chance imo. Actually that is a good point... I wonder how other metros fair in tha...
I've heard that the steel beams they used for the upper floors were ordered without "Camber" to save $$, Camber would have the beams bent slightly upwards, so when the concrete floor is poured, the flex from the weight would straighten out to level. Since the beams they used started straight, they ...
umm I love the Wolfner Library building, but before you start asking $12-14 per sqft maybe make the building inhabitable first. You know Windows, doors, etc. Seriously... BTW I really want this building to become a comedy club for grand center. I imagine the back of the building to be the place wher...
That building is on my list of purchases when I became an eccentric millionaire. Coffee/wine bar in the tower, home of the 'Cortex Model Railroad Club' in the bottom. You should start an "...when I become an eccentric billionaire..." thread. :D I don't know if the tower is enough square footage for...
What was Phase 3 supposed to be? I heard talk about a hopeful Phase 4. Am I missing something? EDIT: I went back in the thread and found the tower that was supposed to be Phase 3. Phase 4 I still wonder about. It it just a rumor? OK to clarify, I have ZERO information regarding a phase IV. I simply...
Just observing that 50% of 100,000 is 50k while 50% of 1 million is 500k. The only thing that makes sense to me is if the study is for municipalities rather than for metros so San Fran's trends of tech workers living in San Fran proper and working in the valley is shown in the results of the study, ...

Yeah seems like it's a lock, otherwise I can't see how they would lend their branding for promotional renderings. The others are probably likely, but not certain yet.
Here's some fodder for the argument that STL tech scene is not all that its cracked up to be.compared to our peers... That the article claims a near 50% jump it tech workers in San Fran over the same time period really makes me wonder about its methodology. The numbers out there were already so hug...
Kind of a shot across the bow at Tropicana lanes. I hope the build this and start planning a Phase IV on the other side of the link station. Are you referring to Queens - The Elegant Bowling Dive? That's a play on King's Bowling Lanes. Fogo de Char, Talboots, and Mico's are all plays other real res...
