Also, I still strongly encourage everyone to email the STL Partnership and others about Ascension.

Let's hope so...
A ton more info is available in the St Louis Lambert thread.
But, in general, STL is very well served by legacy carriers. They all offer competitive prices. I just get very confused where people are ~still~ saying we have poor air service. That’s literally not the case. No direct flights to major European hubs. I work in the financial/research sectors and ca...
Based off the reporting coming out over this, this project looks gravely in danger. This is probably a multiple year delay. In the KC Star article they hint at how no one wants to touch this project — this definitely could kill it. I bet some of the employees at KSTL are sleeping soundly tonight. Se...
I know this article on the Hyperloop is a few months old, but I stumbled across it and got pissed. Who in the hell do these KC people think they are, fn Chicago or Dallas? This new found arrogance is getting ridiculous! They are so obsessed with one-upping STL.( nothing new ). KCStar never passes u...

New KC airport hits a snag

City council rejects Edgemoors MOU.

More than just a snag. It's probably dead.

*giggles silently*
I'm inclined to think the flight connectivity really is something of a big deal. Chicago is the cheapest market in the country for flights, if I recall correctly. And we are one of the more expensive markets. Even when TWA was here, this was a comparatively pricey place to catch a flight. Of course...
Also, this tower will obscure the view of the arch from Busch Stadium
I'm not disappointed. Why would anyone be. Love the sleep architecture and location will really build in solid height and density. Its just that the tower will look meh from the East Side. But height is good. It depends. The way the tower is positioned, it will mainly add density. I think one thing...
null. It actually doesn't look that bad.
nothing but heart eyes.
I have just contacted the St Louis Economic Development Partnership as well as County. Everyone should do the same.

But agreed. I see no reason why Chicago is appealing anymore.
Also, it will be awesome to have a tower crane high above DT.

How many cranes do we think this will get? I could see 2-4, depending on availability of cranes in the STL market, which actually might be stressed at the moment.

I don’t know if the Hotel and Office block would use the same crane or not.

^^ A good point. The jargon often used in this thread can be very advanced. Is there a way to pin a post with like definitions and such for those who may not be as aviation literate?
Another thing to keep in mind, this project is probably well over a year out from ground breaking, and will probably go through several revisions.

IMO, Clayton’s skyline is superior to many other cities. A very aesthetically pleasing assortment

Not on my work computer so this is the best I could do. I'll try a more realistic version later
Oh wow!
A vacant 6 story building vs a 33 story skyline-altering structure.

I really do not see the opposing arguments. I do understand the vacant lot issues, but...come on people. This is a downtown development many of us have DREAMED of. I don't think DT is in a place to be picky...
How many "pier cities" can boast this much development, outside of the outliers like Denver and Nashville. It depends on how one looks at it. For regional standards, STL is seeing a boom. The list of proposals/under constructions is pretty extensive. If we look at total high rise construction, STL ...

I like it; should add a nice modern shimmer to the skyline. In this case, I'm OK with sacrificing the old building to add a new landmark; this will really make an impact on the skyline.
Agreed! This building is awesome!
Just out of curiosity, how drastically will 33 floors alter the skyline in this area?

Not to be pissy, but I am more than willing to take what we can get for Downtown development. We haven't even seen a single rendering. Let's please relax, everyone.
WOOF! Someone quick! Go snag those renderings!
