St. Louis is not even near to being considered http://www.paddypower.com/bet?action=go_type&category=SPECIALS&disp_cat_id=&ev_class_id=45&ev_type_id=22711 I'd find the betting on this to be interesting. I feel like their is so little real knowledge being applied to the odds and is simply based on w...
Definitely favor incremental progress (re-entry) to over reaching (consolidation) at this time. A decade after reentry maybe consolidation will be a less charged issue a certainly the barriers would be lower.
I would guess that there is not a lot of overlap between the set of people who would work at Amazon HQ and the set of people who watch NFL. I would guess you are wrong. Knowing a few amazon employees who are shockingly unhsterish. One happens to be an international who happen to enjoy both forms of...
Re entry is the bare minimum. The fact that the two most powerful political entities in the region are insentivised to compete rather than to pool resources is ridiculous. The fact that the political bodies have in several instances built a political framework to mitigate the self destructive behavi...
I know the Forbes valuation of sports franchises aren't to be taken as gospel truth, but if they are even remotely true, then $150M for a MLS team seems like a bargain. They have the average value as $223M with all but two teams in the league worth at least $150M. Sporting Kansas City, which I thin...
Missouri banking on futuristic tube travel in bid for Amazon HQ2 JEFFERSON CITY • Opting against picking a favorite between St. Louis and Kansas City, Gov. Eric Greitens is telling Amazon it could have both cities — plus a sprinkling of Columbia — if the company chooses a Missouri location for its ...
I usually hate brutalist architectur but I actually like PET. As for Millenium/Stouffers I hope when they renovate it they take a page fro. The Plaza Square playbook and paint those orangish squares som really vibrant colors. There are sixteen windows so I'm imagining a color wheel of 16 shades that...

^I will allow you to build this on the fountain as long as you agree to renovate the tower and get the restaurant spinning again.
[/quote] Amazon could dominate the core of Downtown, and the Gateway Mall could be their de facto campus. Start with the ATT Tower, then build right across the Gateway Mall on the (mostly) vacant lot at 10th and Market, then the three blocks of Ballpark Village Phase III, then the Mike Shannon's sit...

Who said it was...?
Apparently Jones didn't finish her comment. “This is Amazon’s moment to shine,” 'somewhere else you know like Atlanta or something.' Seriously she was almost elected mayor...? Also Franks comment just displays a complete lack of understanding of how the world works. You can't force people to higher ...
^ don't know about deck heights, I just figured if it was there before they could build it again. Also figured that it would be tough to drop it to grade to merge with market but the armory block would provide enough room to bring it to a normal T-intersection type configuration. Plus I don't see Ma...
Now we just need to do something with the stadium garages and rebuild on all of that "green space" by Eagleton. I never understand why the stadium garages are so maligned. If they tear them down the next day people will say stadium needs parking and start planning their replacements. Would be nice ...
actually losing sitelines to the courthouse seems much more likely that losing site of the arch. I wonder if the cardinals are concerned about that...

I wonder if they will try to keep any building at Broadway and Walnut short to preserve that view from home plate....
No matter how you slice it i don't like the fact that this is not coordinated with the overall redevelopment of the interchange. Don't mind the hotel, and if there is not going to be a stadium then i think the location is 'OK', but there haven't been any overlays of how the street grid might be modi...
I don't wish for demo of large existing building very often, BUT, if the Goodwill Outlet Building was demoed Bernard could potentially be extended to connect Vandaventer to Grand. If they did that the Armory development becomes much more viable IMHO. Rebuilding the Spring Ave. viaduct would make it ...
Se ms like a poor site selection. Based on the article above it seems like it was intended to be viewed from above. Doubt many will realize it an art piece.
^ 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...
