Saw a guy doing some surveying outside of the Pelican building this morning. I couldn't tell if he was doing the property or something on Grand. Anyone know anything?

Any news on the Pelican Building? I remember seeing For Sale signs on it a few months back, now those appear to be gone. Haven't heard anything in a while.

^ Word is that it's being built - similar to old plans, or at least I haven't heard otherwise. Domino's Pizza will be moving from down the street. There will be other tenants finalized soon. Owner is Domino's franchise with 73 stores.

The old images:

Thanks for the update. Hopefully something gets done at the Pelican site. Seems like the key factor in extending the South Grand action north of Arsenal. Now if we could only get some progress south of Utah, through Gravois and beyond.

Grand South Grand continues to do its thing... some recent progress:

- the co-working space just west of the City Diner patio is about to open and looks like a great space
- the building just west of King & I is making progress on the Asian Fusion restaurant by Cafe Mochi owners
- 25 apartments are planned for the old St. Pius V School

Good news lately, but there are a few commercial vacancies available on the S Grand strip that need to get filled. Gotta keep the ball moving.
