^And they have a bunch of small satellite offices around town for centralized reservations, IT, fleet management, and the like. Middle management and customer service. Cube farms. Boiler rooms. I could easily see that they'd like to consolidate their smaller offices into something more centralized. ...
I wonder what building it was in CoMO. I'll PM you. The truth is the building desperately needed the new windows and I'm sympathetic to the current owners, so even though it was sad making stuff, I'm glad they were able to do it and stay in their building. It's a heck of a neat old building and too...
Could there be anything more Clayton than this? Well . . . if they don't want the vibrancy I surely do. They may say NIMBY, but I say YIMBY.
With or without a cone this is turning into a heck of a lovely little building and it shows the potential for the area in general. Given that they've gone to the trouble of putting curved heads into the top lights of the upper story windows I bet you're right and they're going the distance. Had a sm...
We really need some kind of device to fight against "investors" who sit on properties and let them fall down. I can't think of a better use of eminent domain. Pay them the assessed value of the land minus typical low-bid demo costs and then auction it off to a qualified rehabber with the condition t...
^At least the auction makes it sound like something really will happen this time. I can't imagine the building wouldn't sell with a starting bid that low.
Burton said the chapel will be "very utilitarian."[/b] <<< Translation: It's going to be pretty plain. "There are going to be the essentials for prayer, worship and meditation," the said, including an altar, chairs and book cases. Given that the old one looked like simple religious furnishings shov...
^Saw that. It's definitely alarming. I knew about Crawford and Seals, and I might have heard tangentially about one or two of the others, but I hadn't understood the sheer scope of it. It really does make you wonder if people are putting their A game into this.
^Oh hey, look, there's a new sheriff in town! That should win him some public support. It's not my place to talk about somebody elsewhere, but I feel like your new fellow is an improvement on McCulloch already. Thank you St. Louis County voters and thank you Mr. Bell.
Added Front Page Lofts.
I don't recall that particular sculpture, but that's almost got to be Laumeier. (Lord knows they rotate things through often enough I don't ever see them all.) Reminds me of someone eating a bowl of soup.
Thank you Chris! Glad to see this lovely building getting some TLC and more occupants. :)
^I have to assume both capacity and weather are factors. Midway has hovered between 250,000 and 300,000 aircraft operations for a decade now, actually falling in recent years. (They hit their peak more than a decade ago, believe it or not.) Their longest runway is a thousand feet shorter than our sh...
If you haven't been to the Security Building, it's worth a visit. The lobby is really quite incredible. St. Louis Office Space has a little writeup of the rehab from a few years back. Anyway, let me try one. I don't think this one will be too difficult, but . . . https://farm1.staticflickr.com/909/4...
And the skylight is the Security Building.
Sandwiched between the little and the big, in fact. Ray's at the corner of Morganford and Delor.

Now the second one intrigues me. Looks to be a skylight over a lobby.
Excellent! It really is a great subject.
I can't say as I'd ever noticed that, but . . . you're right. I see the mess and the crash trucks. Darn shame I can only see part of the airport that day. I expect it made ops a mess for TWA. Glad to see no one died in that particular mess.
Added Iron Hill and updated downtown Y 21c Hotel Museum.
While it's not absolutely perfect I do think it's pretty solid. The buildings have decent lines. The density is pretty good. Things mostly go to the sidewalk line. I wish it had a little more mass towards the corner of Grand and Chouteau rather than towards the back, but . . . I'll live with it. As ...
Oh, what we've lost. :( I suppose I wouldn't have thought of the strip of fourth as Chouteau's Landing, but without the highway it makes sense. On the other hand I never encountered the term Chouteau's Landing at all until the late 90s when someone or other started talking about redeveloping it as a...
I can see adding to it. I can see remodeling it. I cannot support tearing it down wholesale. (Especially the library, but also the main building, the math building . . . ) The Freshman building and the theatre can go. Get rid of the mediocre new crud. Save the interesting old stuff. The "cores" are ...
Glad to have you here. On all the threads. And I look forward to more about your dad growing up in Chouteau's landing. I didn't realize people had lived there since the nineteenth century! Okay, maybe you're dad is/was rather older than I might have guessed. There were certainly houses there once. B...
^Well, the place was beginning to feel like a prison in the 80s and the 90s when I was there, now it will look like a prison too. :( Glad I'm not participating int his nonsense.
^They really are very cool. Too bad I'm a fairly-artless photographer. ;-)
