Dear all

We will have new press release coming out next week. It will mainly focus on Street Landscape and ground floor retail.

Mike Sarimsakci.

Bolded would be fantastic for that section of Tucker.
I'm honestly worried that if the carjackings and armed robberies don't stop soon, we are at risk of seeing a wave of 70's style white flight to the burbs. I hope that's not the case, but this has to stop asap. In the past, these crimes are usually a small group of people so when they do bust them i...
Sounds like some cool artsy stuff is happening in the old Hanneke Hardware building. Here's a link to an article in All The Art magazine. Article on pages 22 - 23: https://issuu.com/alltheartstl/docs/fall2017finaluploadl Curious when that cafe was opening. They originally said February but it sound...
Those pics really show that parking basically doubles the footprint of it
City official: Upper floors of new BJC building are 'buckling' ST. LOUIS • The city building commissioner says it appears the top floors of the north tower of BJC HealthCare's new building near Kingshighway and Forest Park Avenue are "buckling" and he is asking the engineer in charge to verify that...
Richmond Heights leadership just confuses me. It's like how can we make our urban neighborhood more suburban
I tend to agree. I always felt that a residential tower here wouldn't work. Is the office tower still a go? Not sure if dropping the residential and competing w more proposed office space is a plus for Foundry development but could be wrong if LG has some interested tenants & head start on breaking...
This just is what it is. We don't have a venue capable of hosting on any realistic level. Even if you absolutely thought a fully domed stadium should get consideration, consider what the state of the Dome might be in 9 years. There's just simply nowhere for them to play in St. Louis. Pretty much, a...
Unfortunately it seems to be what the residents want in general. I remember complaining on Nextdoor and the neighborhood facebook group about the QT when it was announced there on Hampton. I said we didn't need 7+ gas stations in about a mile section of Hampton and got torn apart because it's QT and...
And I think it's wonderful for the other poster above to make a personal commitment to the standard city public school system. That person is a true pioneer. But that truly is a leap of faith. The people I do know that live in the city have all gone private or in a few cases, they have been able to...

^This has been my feeling all along.
I think the owners are banking on a large TV deal renegotiation in 2020 or so, can't remember the year. I mean for NFL that's pretty much where they make all the money. If MLS keeps growing (USL seems to be growing very well) then I could see that happening
Rats. Stage Left Diner (nee City Diner) has closed. Since the new owners took over, this place was never the same. there simply aren't enough people living or working near Grand Center to sustain any businesses there. the turnover rate is terrible. I've heard LoRusso's there on Grand has a differen...
Union Station will become the quiet stop again just in time for you with the civic center opening in less then two weeks
That is fantastic news. Hopefully it starts turning around that neighborhood
Here's some fodder for the argument that STL tech scene is not all that its cracked up to be.compared to our peers... That the article claims a near 50% jump it tech workers in San Fran over the same time period really makes me wonder about its methodology. The numbers out there were already so hug...
Given the rancor between Metro and St. Louis county right now, it wouldn't surprise me to see Metro file a lawsuit. They've been paying the county for policing service that they haven't been receiving. I would think Fed dollars were involved so hopefully FBI gets involved as it's straight up fraud
As much as I'd like a merger (and consolidation) I would much rather NOT have people that don't live anywhere close to St. Louis and will never really have a proper understanding of the issues we currently face (nor actually really care about them) to be making region-altering decisions like that. ...
St. Louis in a nutshell, if I have to pay a couple dollars to park, screw it. I'll never understand why paying to park is an 11 on the "painful things" list for people in this town. Meters in the past I hated because I never carried cash/coins. Ever since I can pay with my mobile phone it's just a ...
I was looking at the developer's website and found that this project will be branded "Hibernia". https://www.hiberniabypearl.com/ There also seems to be another $12,000,000 St. Louis project here: http://pearlrealestatefunds.com/portfolio/. Does anyone know what that might be? I messaged them on Fa...
This will not get built. Agreed. No way in hell it gets built. Even the wording of the tweet "verbal govt approval" means nothing.... Tesla's are amazing cars but Musk is 1-step below a charlatan, imo. These tweets part of the magic-show to distract from the car company problems. Tesla is a cash-fu...
What's the latest downtown population estimate? I've seen 18K a while back for 'Greater Downtown' but it wasn't clear on the definition. Per DowntownSTL, 9560 for downtown core and 18,815 for greater downtown. 2017 annual report doesn't show the boundary but their 2015 report does to give you an id...
Right. This is the part that I didn't believe at first until I confirmed with an internal BJC administrator. (Whether or not they actually tested it out themselves I don't know but they confirmed it's a real thing). I'm curious how they are going to fix it and I assume all the costs associated with...
One less section of parking lot to look at, at the very least! Keep the medical campus construction rolling! Also, has anyone heard an update on the new hospital "leaning" issue resolution? I've verified through BJC contacts that there is indeed an issue, but I haven't been able to figure out what ...
In TGS folks seem to have become accustomed and desensitized to crime. No exaggeration, we literally have residents who have their cars and garages broken into and won't call the cops because they think the person who stole from them must be poor and must have needed to do it. I would say this is a...
