"LoanSum LLC". Not sure if they are lien holders, or otherwise. It is in rough shape though. Losing this entire block would be a massive blow.
There's all types of people on this site, so whether its walkability, development, architecture, interiors, political, city pride... I mean... everyone here is looking at it through their own lens. Is it great that a developer is willing to bet this heavily on a TOD-ish project??? Yeah sure! Is it ...
^ Fair criticisms. I think my initial feeling was being a bit underwhelmed as well. Roddy is on Twitter acting like it's the second coming of Christ for a "car optional neighborhood" (I laughed my ass off). There is such a disjointed effort to really make this a game changing development. It'll be g...
^ I guess, yes, we will hopefully find out Wednesday. A general question for everyone though; isn't it feasible to bury at least some of the parking, especially when you have a pretty blank slate like we have here? I'm sure the cost goes up. I would also hope Roddy would be included in this; doesn't...
^ I'd prefer the Target Downtown. Wouldn't balk at it here, though, granted the parking is underground or something. If I see a parking garage pop up here after all this time, I'm about done. Lol.
^ Completely agree. They really do need to consider a stop further into Forest Park, or should have from the beginning. It just places a magnifying glass on how limited the system really is. So many people go to other spots in Forest Park, and a single contiguous system would make most sense. Now, w...
The anticipation is killing me.

The garage could take up a big chunk of that site. Will be around 2k spots.
And all mere blocks from a shiny new public mass transit stop.

When will it end?
Control + Left Click on a link on Windows will open it in a new tab. Command + Left Click on Mac will do it too. At least in Chrome.
^ That's awesome! Bevo has so much potential. There was a fair bit of traffic calming on Gravois, yeah?
Does anyone have rumblings about potential tenants? Hard to imagine the owners want to dump millions for nothing, especially when the entire building is going to need to be renovated (essentially rebuilt from the inside out to make it more attractive). I know of four companies, all names you have h...

Hard to imagine the owners want to dump millions for nothing, especially when the entire building is going to need to be renovated (essentially rebuilt from the inside out to make it more attractive).
So the new residents get to mow their parking pads? :wink:
Interesting. Thanks. Couldn't see anything else other than an 18k square foot addition. Wonder where its going. Hopefully theyre not blowing a bunch of space on parking, as they are touting how it will transform an entire block.
Wonder what the end game with that Sidney rehab/demo is. That entire square block could benefit from infill. I mean, such a desolate block fronting a park. I also think that immediate area has a ton of potential with the warehouses, on both sides of Jefferson/Gravois. Tons of potential, in fact. Jef...
Thanks for those!

Not as ornately designed as I would have imagined, but also would certainly fit the bill for a Moolah-esque finish. Could obviously see this as a part time event space as well.
Edit: Also found this from Colliers. No shots of the inside, though. Looks like proposals/offers were due by the 14th. https://listingsprod.blob.core.windows.net/ourlistings-usa/ba9fe169-802c-4f8a-9900-3a150efb289e/95eb4726-2be3-4177-b4de-138b9fd44e44 Here is a link to Inside photos: http://anderso...
^ Perhaps not the same vein, but 1900 Park almost feels like yet another underutilized arts space just a handful of blocks away. I could also see this being prime creative co-working space. IE, tons of studio space, monthly and yearly co-working suites, with decent computer rigs, common areas, and m...
Any thoughts on retail tenants?
I agree. Or a venue of sorts. Not sure what the neighborhood would put up with, though. And lastly, Would love to see a proposal for that vacant lot to its West over an eyesore parking lot for a venue. If N/S arrives, it would be nice to rebuild a semblance of street wall along Jefferson. Just curio...
^ Is uprooting your entire life out of kneejerk reaction really that feasible for most people? Hasn't the County been ran by Democrats the last like, 60 years? It's not like the City is being "bailed out" and then forcing all of its leadership upon the County, which is another thing I keep hearing f...

The Aldi was across the street where the Union Club apartments are today.
Ah, I must have been confused though. I was told that the vacant lot was an Aldi by someone else. Thanks!
I agree. There is still plenty of surface lots all around Clayton. Kind of a bummer.
In all honesty, that's great news. I'd rather have more residents in Lafayette Square, should this sell and turn into condos. It's a beautiful building and I'm tired of it sitting vacant. If the same lot is owned where the Aldi used to be (immediately West IIRC), perhaps we have a chance at some inf...
