It'll be a shame to lose the building (one of the few intact street walls facing Busch) but I think this is a fair trade off. New residential towers downtown certainly challenge certain narratives flying around the City.
If we tried to put this on the ballot, Greitens and co. in Jeff City would make it retroactively impermissible. Anything to show us rioters in St. Louis our proper place. They haven’t done it with the last 2 voter approved sales tax hikes. There has been talk of banning sales tax increases actually.

St. Louis' pension obligations are actually relatively under control compared to a lot of other major cities. Things could be a lot, lot worse on that front.
Of the city's 191 homicides through November (up 12% from last year)... North City; 154 (up 27%) Central: 14 (unchanged) South: 23 (down 26%) Exhibit A for why population loss from North City is going to be horrific in the next census. The City of St. Louis will likely end up being plurality white ...
Block Group 5-year ACS estimates are out Thursday. I might throw together a map of St. Louis City, St. Louis County and maybe St. Claire County to see what's up.
The Chick Fil A at Truman State is very much open to the public so I imagine the one there will be as well.
Almost none of the posters on this forum live in one of the most dangerous cities in the world. If you look at the homicide maps, there are essentially 2 Cities of St. Louis: the one where people are shot at an alarming rate, and the one where people are very seldom murdered. Almost all of us on her...
God this forum is full of crybabies. The defeatism is as pointless as it is annoying. So...we should just not care that 190 people have been killed? I can't be horrified that the mounting death toll in our city? I think everyone cares quite a bit that our fellow City residents are being murdered, b...

God this forum is full of crybabies. The defeatism is as pointless as it is annoying. OK, let's put a positive spin on the increasing murder rate. How about: each additional murder means we simply have more "opportunity to improve" next year. How'd I do? There are a lot of things that seem beyond o...
I don't see a single compelling reason for Amazon to move to Chicago, and I doubt most people in Chicago would even want them there. Too much traffic already.

I support N-S, but what is the point of arguing about the proposed route of a line that is not going to be built?
This made me remember a map I had made/posted in another thread which shows the change in registered voters between March of 2013 and November of 2016 (I think): http://i.imgur.com/2msqoQv.png I think some of the effect is lower registration rates among African Americans, especially young people, vs...
Looks very generic.

The St.Louis region was one of the hardest hit areas when it came to the big recession
Interesting. What makes you think that?
The Chrysler Plant closing.
It'd be really cool if the developers took over designing the Union Station MetroLink Platform, especially underground. Cleaning it up, doing some interesting lighting, and marketing/placemaking, things that let you know you're at the Aquarium. Be pretty cool if they could have the floor of one of ...
This is really a tragedy.
It's sad that they have to belittle us to make themselves feel important.
Looks like a great project, hope it breaks ground soon.
I think experiences are going to vary by precinct, and that is the sad truth.
I will say, people definitely refer to the area where the theater is as "Hi-Pointe". It's the highest point in the city and combined with the presence of the iconic theater, that makes it instantly identifiable.
Hi-Pointe is in its own neighborhood (the aptly named Hi-Pointe). I think I'd have called that neighborhood Dogtown more or less. Dogtownish. I've never heard of a neighborhood called "Hi-Pointe," but there are a quite a lot more officially designated neighborhoods than neighborhoods people actuall...
