I miss the amphitheater. What was the basis for removing it again? Well, no one really used it, for one thing. Several years ago, Kiener was named to a listing of the nation's worst public spaces. The ampitheater was a tired concept whose best days were behind it. Well not really true exactly. I wo...

Man 23 million doesn't buy what it used to. Any inside information on why it cost so much...?
When are we going to try to calm the Tucker traffic? At least a lane on each side.. or 2 on the southbound side. No one wants to cross that sh*t as a pedestrian south of Washington. I always thought th way to do it was move north south metrolink route to tucker. Two lanes we be eliminated to accomm...
After some thought I am awestruck by how Uncreative the people developing this plan must be. This is freaking Clayton. If they put some thought into it they could actually reduce the cost and still get a new building. After one day of thought here was what I came up with. Acceptable options. -Renova...
ANother godd reason IMHO to leave Pruitt Igoe undeveloped.
A couple of issues in play that i know of. Obviously trucks need replaced over time. The industry standard for truck size has increased in size over time. So if you want to order a pumper for an older engine house there are situations were the truck would have to be customized to fit rather than jus...
^^I think if they build in the county they will go full on suburban stadium. The urban areas of the county have to high land values. Also visitors from Chicago or KC are VERY unlikely to fly. The will most likely drive and therefore plan to park at the stadium. IMHO Likely locations would be -Fenton...
^I hope they have a strong case. If they come out empty handed then they'll have just wasted a bunch more money on the Rams. If they win it seems like the precedent would be catastrophic for these leagues in the efforts to squeeze markets for tax dollars. So much so that I can't see them taking it a...
I tend to roll my eyes that it seems like every mixed use project is targeting a grocer for their retail. IF they do find one my guess is going to be United Provisions as it fits their business model the best (I can't see Culinaria even though i wish they could be coaxed into a second location somew...
Debated about which thread to post this in. http://www.bnd.com/opinion/editorials/article143438044.html I agree with the over arching premise of the article but... Missouri-first thinking puts our military spy mapping facilities in a land-locked, polluted and blighted area with ISIS peeking in the w...
It seemed at a glance prop 1 was simply sold as "Metrolink expansion". As in, "if you vote for this, we'll expand Metrolink". I think this might've been a mistake. Runs the risk of disgruntling a lot of folks when they realize what they actually voted for. So what was the vote for? Since its lookin...
^Umm he was trying to make a relative point and have a little fun besides. Also I think Yadi is at minimum the greatest catcher of his generation but i would still take 30+ years of MLS over 3 more years of Yadi. duh. That they could be at all comparable in terms of net returned to the city and regi...
Plus I think the land is already part of the north-side TIF so thats probably part of the problem right there. Personally i think seeing the county as the problem in so much as they didn't offer some money misses the mark entirely. The county has no way to recoup their investment so that would have...

On a hopeful note, even if you did have a plan B I don't know if it would be wise to advertise that there was a plan B. So let see what happens...
For historic aerial imagery of the City of St. Louis and St. Louis County only, this web application recently created by St. Louis County is much better than HistoricAerials.com (no watermarks!). http://stlcogis.maps.arcgis.com/apps/webappviewer/index.html?id=be830565f4f34d32882962f788f560db For th...
^Also worth noting his review of the NFL stadium plan was quite a bit more mixed than the unequivocal support for the MLS proposal in that article. Not saying a person should take his word for it necessarily but he's not a fund at any cost kind of commentator. A couple quotes from the article I will...
Would be great to eventually tear out the Kiener garages and replace with some new buildings with underground parking. Jesus those are such eyesores. What was torn down to build them? Ms. Krewson, tear down those garages! Good q on what was there before... anyone? http://collections.mohistory.org/r...
ugh and after leading the charge to exit St. Louis, he retires and doesn't even get to enjoy his freedom from state income taxes that motivated his exit. Seriously a Missouri traitor. If Slay and Nixon could have worked him for a few more years they might have actually consolidated here.
Is there anything to stop them now...? Sad that the fort move slu makes is to propose tearing down the one thing they have been trying to tear down for a decade. As if there is only one plac a major new education building could go. If only Pevely hadn't been there they would have had state of the ar...
Local BBQ chain would be cool too if they could pull it off. Can't roll a smoker onto the tarmac though...
So many things that would've been built like the Highlands plan and the place where the Boulevard is would've look great for our City. To bad none of them happened I actually like the current highlands project better than this one. Better use of structured parking. Shorter but more evenly distribut...
"Fugly" taste is pretty subjective. I think the standard is fine. Not daring in anyway, but fine. My only gripe is that i think they should have taken a risk with a corner retail anchor. Not the length of the street mind you, just the corner would have sufficed. A more vibrant color pallet would hav...
Here it comes. Let's all remember what John Stewart told us at the end of his last show STL BJ - MLS group plans to spend $1 million on stadium campaign http://www.bizjournals.com/stlouis/news/2017/03/09/mls-group-plans-to-spend-1-million-on-stadium.html They Should just offer every registered vote...
How would this eventually effect the city's ability to have a higher minimum wage? Also, I expect the county to demand equal control of the Airport as part of any deal. Both parties put it in writing that the city can't benefit from the sales tax revenue redistribution pool, city isn't able to disi...
