Sticky- St. Louis Mega Projects!

Downtown construction activity, including hotel projects, major renovations, office projects, streetscape improvements, etc.
Downtown's triple digit million dollar projects keep growing.



Below is a list of projects in the metro area that are under construction, approved, or proposed. The twist here is that these projects are nearly $100-million and above in cost. This thread was inspired by the "East of Broadway" project, featuring the new Federal Reserve building and pedestrian plaza, recently announced in the St. Louis Business Journal.



This list will change as others are discovered or announced.

Woohoo!! Exciting!

Nice photoshop work to whoever made those Choteau pics. Be careful for the shadows though, they're a dead giveaway. Exciting indeed, but I'm keeping my hopes down. :?

Of course you would.

I don't get it. What is wrong with the shadows? Thanks for the ever positive post we get from you. :?

I didn't see the Ballpark Village project of $300 million on that list.

The shadows aren't consistent.

Thanks a bunch. I put it on there.

what's up with the heinous addition to Mansion House? Granted, those three buildings look a little rough right now. They were built to be contemporary, mirroring/ copying the Seagram Building in New York. It's a McRenovation.

JCity, I totally agree with you. Check out the debate at the <A HREF="http://www.urbanstl.com/viewtopic.php?t=1080">Mansion House Complex Renovation Plans</A> thread.
So for the price of 4 St. Louis University Arenas, I can build an one entire Bottle District development? ($70mil vs. $290mil) That's a lot of money, but it's fun to think what projects I could swap with others.

Does anyone know if there are any updated renderings for the 4-Seasons, Pinnacle development (this looks like a cheesy suburban office building, not a 4-Seasons hotel). Would appreciate any information of updated urban planning for this development or more detailed renderings/actual proposed designs. Thank you.

That is the design, so no.

mattnstl,

that is a shame, but thank you anyway.

updated.

Excuse you, Minneapolis but St. Louis is now apart of the leading major cities of the midwest when we exclude the International metro of Chicago.



Good Bye Rust Belt, hello some catchy advertising name that can compete with the Sun Belt.

I am not sure I am following the mention of Minneapolis, but I like the idea that Saint Louis could be considered something other than "rust belt".



Mud belt?



:D



Just kidding..

What about Bud Belt? :D

That might be misinterpreted by some. :o

We could be the Bio-Belt, if we can get the religious nuts out of Jeff City.

I think bud belt wins.

Next time someone asks me something geographic about this area, I am going to use bud belt.



its really quite brilliant.

only problem with "bud belt" is that it emplies it strings from one city or area to another. Bud is here and only here... Rust belt is manufactering cities - Sun belt is cities in the south that are sunny.. Bud belt is just St. Louis I agree its catchy - but at the same time - we aren't a belt....



Bio belt at least includes STL KC and Columbia..
