^ Plain Jane freeway interchange development. But not sure if you could really build anything in that spot that would be inspiring
In the Richmond Heights cost benefit analysis my pick is do nothing option until some other developments go forward. In this case, I think Richmond Heights would be better off if Boulevards II break ground with more residential/mixed use and the second hotel go up next to University tower @ corner of Brentwood/Clayton Ave get built out first. At least both developments along Brentwood are somewhat more transit friendly to Richmond Heights metrolink station (no Hanley Ave to cross) and give hotel guests an option to park & walk/use transit during their stay as well as add some density & possibly Richmond Heights residents to its population count.
Otherwise, my wishful thinking is Home Depot and existing businesses between Hanley Ave & metrolink tracks booked end by metro parking structure to the north & Hanley station (hotel/apartments) to the south are relocated so the area can be cleared for a more transit oriented development, another hotel. Something more along the lines of The Boulevards. It will never happen between Brentwood, Richmond Heights and current owner/developers as the vision for Hanley Ave has been defined first and foremost by sales tax revenues between Richmond Heights, Brentwood and Maplewood
