Apparently local business decisions are made by the Most Holy Synod of Drunken Fools and Jesters. :( We knew this, of course. But . . . man that hurts. That building really helped to make that corner bearable. And now it will be just one more nameless piece of awful.
This would require some statistical study, but it strikes me as entirely possible that the stance of local youth towards our urban core might be precisely why the region isn't growing. Sorry but this is just completely wrong. The number of young adults has been growing for some time and its only in...
Very good! Here's to hoping we eventually end up with enough new residential from projects like this that the city has to open more schools. (Oh the irony!) Also: Forgotten? Nah. It's just that it's actually Carondelet. The old part. The main part. And the part with the name now was the farmland aro...
This would require some statistical study, but it strikes me as entirely possible that the stance of local youth towards our urban core might be precisely why the region isn't growing. Would I like to see this in the city? You bet. Absolutely. Would be much more exciting. But it also might not sell ...
For what it's worth, I talked my wife out of jobs in St. Wentzville and Weldon Springs for similar reasons. Instead she works five minutes away for now. I'm very much a city boy. I just think characterizing companies as . . . "willfully ignorant to the obvious preferences of their future employees" ...
^Heh! It's not what you know it's who you know? Story of what's wrong with our society in a nutshell.
If the height is still the same, maybe they've decided to make the upper floors taller. You could very easily do that and it wouldn't even be visible from street level, thanks to perspective. (Would even improve the look, actually. There's a funny trick to the naives of French cathedrals that makes ...
Choose us! You can spend 1/3 of your life in a Big pile of not exciting. !!!!! *Recruiting Win!* 5 years later under the Corporate Mergers thread: "WHY DO OUR COMPANIES KEEP DISAPPEARING?!?!?!?!" Funny you should mention that. I think I kind of responded to it in the End to Western Sprawl thread. I...
So this is a reply to something that started off as an aside about 64/40 on the Ballpark Village thread. But it turned into a discussion of the PSB and, more relevant here, the MacArthur. Would have been nice to simply rehab the MacArthur road platform and have another way to get across the river. W...
^I don't entirely disagree with you, but there is a part of me that thinks local kids defy some of the national trends. My niece seems quite content in exurbia. She might yet surprise me. (She's a pretty neat lady.) But I don't see where she would necessarily shy away from a job in a suburban office...
I don't even see this as particularly contributing to sprawl. It's medium density suburban office replacing low density suburban housing of no particular merit. To me it's a bit of a sleeper. Big pile of not exciting. But if it keeps jobs in the metro area, fan-frigging-tastic. A plus. Even better i...
Update for Framer: Are the Reinhardt murals still out there, and are they anywhere near the Taylor/Thurman piece? In the course of all this I spoke to one of the airports representatives. Apparently the Reinhardt murals never belonged to the airport. They must have been on long term loan. They were ...
Are the Reinhardt murals still out there, and are they anywhere near the Taylor/Thurman piece? I did not notice them, now that you mention it. The Flight mural might have been moved to SLU in 2010. I'm having a hard time finding any recent news of it at all. It wouldn't be the first time significan...
Nice! I like it better already.
FWIW. Lumiere has led the local casino market in increased revenue for at least 4 quarters in a row. They're clearly doing something right, and that's got to be a boost for the Landing. I don't doubt they're doing well for themselves, but do you really think they bring traffic to the landing? I wou...
^ Thank you Ken. :) There's a lot to like around here. The place needs some work, but there's a lot of lovely and whimsy to be found. On that note: a few new ones from a trip to the airport to drop off my partner in crime, who flew overseas to help her family out. (I'm incredibly jealous right now, ...
Honestly, as much as I grouse about closing Washington, the real blow to the landing was Lumiere Place, which tore down a strip of popular businesses and made access across 70 even more difficult than it already was. Kind of a double whammy. I'd like to see CAR do something to make the landing more ...
It would be hard to complain about those from the inside. :)
^ still not buying it. i'm hearing that floors 37, 38, and 39 will have cloaking technology. I've been telling everybody I know its 100 floors I mean that's the name of it for goodness sakes but nobody believes me. Can't wait to see what they build at 200 Kingshighway! It'll be twice 100, but half ...
I guess this wasn't announced? And I hear they are having a tough time leasing out 2 Light, only 20-30% full? Does KC have any towers over 25 floors either under construction or proposed? I'm finding several things close to your figure, but not over. To be frank, it feels a little arbitrary, since ...
I just thought there'd be enough seats available to market to locals. Guess we'll see as it gets closer. Having witnessed the change the SEC made in Columbia . . . no. Probably not. During SEC games the town felt like UMC/Nebraska games used to feel. (Though with more pearls. Pearls. At sporting ev...
The Virginia Theater is also technically CDA owned, even though it shows LRA. It was acquired at the behest of the Alderman in 2009. Probably needs $3 million or so to make it into something useful, but the roof and structural elements are in decent condition. It was most recently used as a church....
Even if they don't have below grade parking I find it difficult to believe there would be nothing below grade. At least elevator pits would have to be, though I suppose that wouldn't take long. But they're going to put all the utility spaces above grade? Anything is, I suppose possible. But . . . ma...
It's been good seeing you about and you've been a welcome addition to our community. I hope you feel at least as welcome in physical Soulard. I've never lived there, but it is a pretty area and I've generally enjoyed my visits very much. My six-month first-thought assessment is that crime, general l...
Just as a reminder, Cushman & Wakefield also still has one on site, and a few time lapses from older cameras as well.
