So far, I believe Newark, NJ is the only bid that has publicly released their offer. $7 Billion from the state of NJ to upgrade transport networks, as well as several plots of free land in downtown Newark. The NYC Metro is experiencing serious turf battles over this. As more bids are made public, I ...

Speaking of New Jersey ... hopefully our bid...doesn’t......look like this.........

What are the agencies that would have paid for such renderings? If someone can provide me with a list of the top 3-5 I'll put in a few FOIA requests. Wasn't HOK going to do some pro bono stuff for the Amazon effort? I believe HOK and Clayco came up with renderings, entirely pro bono. They also had ...
I heard that HOK has commissioned renderings for Amazon2STL. Any chance we ever get a glimpse of them?

Guessing most likely time they formally start booking will be their next schedule extension. Interesting to see how its timed and how easy connections would be to/from here to these flights, or if any are same plane service. Wonder if them starting nonstop from here to Sacramento and San Jose next ...
I would really like to see St. Louis, in turn, throw a massive relocation package at TD. Although they just built their huge HQ outside of Omaha on Dodge, I see no reason why they are staying in Omaha. Eppley Airfield is stuck in the 1980s, the city itself is isolated. ConAgra recently bailed on Oma...

Good news for the airline. As you said earlier jshank, it would be really cool if they routed a flight STL-CA-HI.

It's amazing to me how much pure office space Amazon uses. I would have thought most of their space needs would be warehouses etc. I believe it is by far with their vast distribution warehouses all across the country. I had to laugh when I saw Sweeney from Eco Devo say we had an advantage with thei...
Off topic slightly, but when do we think they will renovate the majority of Terminal 1? It just kinda looked tired and sad when I came back from Atlanta a couple months ago. In what way? The airport recently underwent a massive renovation, mostly in T1. I think Terminal One looks really good. Sent ...

Agreed. Maybe they could expand it as well with a larger international arrivals area?

Even if we lack talent i don't think they have a hard time getting talent to move here money always talks besides isn't that how all cities became what they were is talent from all over the country and world came to them? Do we really lack talent? Or does it all exist out in the suburbs? "St. Louis...
Transit might be the only definitive criteria they provided, but that isn't stopping a lot of cities from applying. I might be a little biased, but I dont think any rail less than 10 miles technically qualifies as mass transit. Streetcars are great for moving people around downtown and surrounding ...
Up in Detroit, they are not messing around with this one. To recap, Windsor Canada is involved making it the only binational bid. Also, they have Dan Gilbert. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=40Kh-z_9FjA I really think it’s between St Louis and Detroit. Except STL IMO has much more to offer. Again, ...
A quote from a different message board. --- Nope haha, I have no affiliation with Spirit. All I know was that the new hire class at Spirit was told the LAX base will be announced this coming Tuesday, and another person mentioned that IND, STL, and UIO routes are supposed to begin next year. Keep in...

I rather see a sea of 400 ft tall buildings downtown. I think St. Louis' skyline and general density would be helped by buildings in the 250-450 foot range. The tallest building in Vancouver is only about 650 ft, no too much taller than the Arch. The rest of the buildings are in the 300-500 foot ra...

Probably not.

Is there any truth to the height limit?

That tower is..well..shocking?

Here’s some quick research I have done regarding our competitors. I have broken them down into three categories. My research method is local response and total amount of articles about the pursuit in that metro. It obviously can’t be 100% accurate but it’s a general idea Cities -aggressively- pursui...
^Nope. The blocks facing the Arch make up the Face of St. Louis; they have to be quality high-rise. It's our money shot, after all. We gotta build that area for the long term. Agreed. That view is known the world over. Undoubtedly, anything built there will have to be a landmark in and of itself Se...
