^ Foundry already had its TIF approval from earlier. The projects like Cortex passed by the Commission just yesterday I assume will get to the BoA before too long.

Biz Journal article behind paywall so not quite sure what they are reporting on. Something new or just a rehash?

Solid list of retailers. Was hoping for Uniqlo but you can't get everything.

^ although one in the city would be nice, aren't they already in the region?

^^ think there's a lot more spaces to lease, so maybe you'll get your Uniqlo.

I think he means that he wants an apple store in the city, specifically this part of the city.

Yes. Apple Store in the City. Specifically around the College Campus of SLU and Harris Stowe. Also, it would be a good location for a store since it is in between the reemerging Grove and Central West End areas.

Well, NextSTL has updated the story stating that both Patagonia and Zara are denying being involved with City Foundry. IKEA said the same thing back in the day, so there is precedent for companies to deny until the official announcement is made. But, still concerning that two of the bigger names proactively reached out to cross their name off the list; especially since there are leasing documents somewhere that prove otherwise apparently.

Hopefully we'll get clarification and an official announcement on tenants soon.
