The glass elevator doors are beyond beautiful.
Should St. Louis City be the first city to outlaw tackle football with a plan to phaseout high school tackle football over say a 6 year span? Boost High School Baseball, Soccer, and HS Basketball (already big.) Start steering middle schoolers to one of those other sports? Or transition all tackle f...
^Oh, that would be neat! On the other hand, it helps me hone my google foo. I suspect no one knows all of them. (Once you start getting into CPS grade airports and smaller, anyway. Though experienced pilots might even know at least most of those.)
I confess, it is making me happy every time I drive down Delmar. First, traffic is slower and more sane. Second . . . wires! And rails! :) Can't wait until they get the cars out and going.
^It's just a WAG, really. And it's early days. I wouldn't figure the number of floors is set in stone yet, let alone the ceiling height. I certainly wouldn't care to have to pop tiles in another building like that. Makes everything twice as hard as it needs to be. I certainly hope you're right . . ....
Heck, experienced fliers can't tell a 321 from a 737 without looking at the safety card. Speak for yourself! Aw, c'mon! I'm trying to be helpful here. Shadrach is a friend. And a smart guy. Just trying to give him some backup. ;-) First off, I wouldn't call myself an exceptionally experienced flier...
I'm just guessing based on their renderings and the regulations. The street elevation there seems to be about 470' so a maximum mean elevation above sea level of 751' would permit about a 280' building. If you divide that by 33 you get about 8.5' stories. Now, the lobby level looks taller, so maybe ...
I think I saw that Delta flight yesterday—I was picking up my kids at GCAA and noticed an incoming plane that wasn't blue/yellow/red. :lol: I'm not one those who would know a 737 from a 767 from an A321... Well, they all kind of look the same, save for the size. Two underwing engines. Low wing. Low...
Did this happen to anyone else again this morning? I have planes go over my place pretty regularly but they aren't all that loud. I was woken up this morning around 5:40 to my house shaking from some kind of plane. It didn't show up on any fight trackers though, which means it must have been milita...
This is strictly a quick and dirty approximation. I'm using a picture off this forum of 212 Meramec for the 300 S. Broadway tower. (My apologies. I forget whose photograph it was. Please forgive. I could probably look it up, but it's late so . . . maybe tomorrow.) The north elevation in the renderin...
Valid points all, actually. Hadn't thought about the impact of the rather flagrant antipathy between ownership and fans. And indeed, lower ratings in LA are probably worth more than higher ratings here. (Which . . . is why the ownership moved the team. They want to sell for more than they paid, no d...
I wonder why there hasn't been more interest in the Southside route on this map. Looking at the train line there, it appears to only be utilized by one business (Kop-Coat on Southwest). There's more use for a line than simply switching industries. While the Oak Hill line isn't busy, the traffic on ...
It sounds to me as though there are two separate units and she's legit, at present. But she's running into a "we don't want renters in our neighborhood" NIMBY backlash. (Since she's rented to more people in the past, and can't get that license change without the approval of her neighbors.) Which is ...
But STL is the largest football deprived metro of the top 50, after raiders move to LV. Only one in top 50 with no Div 1 college or NFL within 2 hour drive. I think locals as well as multiple of team fans within easy driving range would attend games here. I'm not sure that would make all that much ...

So wait, are people saying that if we raise the taxes in the city we might stop getting Lambert sized QTs EVERYWHERE in the city? Put it on the ballot TODAY. Call a special session. Anything to stop these damn things.
Nice! Well said!
. . . I'm still confused as to where they got their percentage for STL from, especially considering they used the BTS stats too. It also wouldn't negate their statement that STL doesn't have a dominant carrier. Oh well, it's really not an issue, I'm just being nitpicky. Seems a legit question and I...
^I love how the shot with the Clayton skyline makes it appear as though "downtown" is both tiny and forty miles away. But anyway . . . yes, great stuff.
^Nicely done stlexplorer. I particularly like the last one at Cherokee and Jefferson.
Not to say any of you are incorrect, since I don't think you are, but I don't really pay attention to the price all that closely. Even if the difference were twenty cents that would only amount to a dollar on a typical fill. It's not worth the time. I buy gas at the station which is usually reasonab...
^ I know, apparently he was having an "anxiety attack" ( source ). That in itself qualifies for a flying impairment plus, considering the contents he decided to bring with him (a sh*tload of dogs and guns LOL) I'd say it's a pretty safe bet he wasn't playing with a full deck a takeoff. I'm not terr...
^Thank you SLN. It's . . . somebody always draws the short straw. Rotten luck. Sadly.
There's still plenty of brewries nearby. Whether or not the official Board of Alderman designated place they call "downtown" (tm) has a brewery or not is of little concern. Schlaffly and Morgan Street are both downtown in the more conventional sense and Four Hands is nearly so. You could call it Sou...
Wow. Are they really writing up leases on an old manual typewriter? They've been in there since 1994. Yes. They quite probably typed it on an old (electric) typewriter. 1994 was still the days of daisy wheel and dot matrix. A daisy wheel printer would be nearly indistinguishable from a typewriter. ...
I think I might have actually parked in Forest Park once and walked over to Barnes just to show off the view to a friend. (A friend of mine used to work there and my sister spent way too much time in there before she died. Through no fault of theirs, to be clear. Just . . . cancer. That said, for a ...
Of course, something along these lines might be even more exciting in the not too distant future:



Though they're not quite bricks in the standard sense. But with time, I'm sure someone will tweak sizes and shapes and add artsy block laying patterns.
