Re: Bird Scooters Have Landed

i told you it was a hazy recollection! did a quick google, found a 11/28/18 star article that said it was a shields proposal that lucas/canady/loar voted for and wagner/fowler voted against. i would link to it, but it's the star and i don't like giving them clicks.

It's astounding to me that St. Louis City has not stemmed its' population loss. I would think by now that it would be adding people again--albeit slowly.
the lesson here of course is that no municipality can afford not to heavily subsidize sport team stadium demands. /s

Re: Bird Scooters Have Landed

is my generally hazy recollection correct that lime pulled out never to be heard from again not long after lucas/the council pushed for all the scooter $ to go into affordable housing instead of bike/micro-mobile infrastructure, and if so, is that timing just a silly coincidence?

Re: OFFICIAL - McCown Gordon HQ

i'll still bitch about it being underwhelming for being right next to a streetcar stop, but at this point that's mostly because i like bitching. this looks like a much, much better version of the corrigan out building with more pedestrian friendly ground floor and more interesting structure overall.

i walked by it a couple times this weekend. the streetcar is not as hidden as those pictures make it seem (no shots fired at the photographer, of course). it's completely fine.

Re: City Center Square for sale

some completely random comment on reddit the other day said the people behind parlor would be picking and managing the new tenants for city center square. not sure what this does for target rumors, or whether it's worth any more than i paid for it.
