^Any additions of entertainment options should be welcomed without prejudice. If the league approached the CVC with a proposal to establish a team in St. Louis I think they should support it to the degree that they could let them use the dome for games. They could even allow it for a very low price,...
I think they need to demonstrate where the inefficiencies are that a private company could address that a pseudo governmental organization can't. I think if they identify them you have to wonder why they can't just implement the changes rather than privatizing. I just find it hard to see privatizati...
Thanks for the photos, symphonicpoet. I don't like segment 4. It's redundant to the current alignment and it would be cheaper (and offer more coverage) if the line went north on 14th street instead of east on Clark etc. Yes I've always hated this. Of course I prefer Tucker instead of 14th. Largely ...
On some level see the East side proposal as a little thick headed. Yes I want to see a recovered east side but it really outlines the extreme poverty that encircles downtown when you can dump hundreds of millions into a site and still can't make a dent in the desperate situation there. Pretty disapp...
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...

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...
