Also should note this wraps around (behind I suppose) Char Bar. So Char Bar remains, expensive croquet and all.

Re: Cookingham and 169

I don't get this. If you don't want big box stores then why do you live in the suburbs which are built around big box stores? This is an honest question.

Re: Current Hannibal Bridge

Can confirm that railroads have been approached about using the North Loop project as an opportunity to build a new crossing that would allow them to straighten out the kinks in the system around the river crossing.

Makes sense, the largest warehouse inventory metros are almost always going to places with wide open spaces and lots of cheap land that you can build on.


I just love that it is a place name. One can imagine it located somewhere west of Tatooine.

Re: AMC and Ten Main Center

I'd have to imagine that the proximity of the Main St. transit hub also plays a significant role in the difficulty of finding a commercial tenant for the southeast corner. Was that a Commerce branch at some point? Always seems like a weird space to me, though I'm sure the transit center doesn't hel...

Re: Status and future of the River Market area??

I am fond of buildings that are four stories or less, but I'm curious why some are concerned about buildings being too tall? What's the issue for you? Agreed. But, I like this concept b/c the taller buildings are pushed to the corners of the site where they strike me as more appropriate. That said,...

Re: Remodeling Town Pavillion

It's mildly irritating that the new Domino's won't deliver to northeast. I was glad the newish Papa Johns that opened in xroads a while ago does. Is 19th and McGee really that much closer than 11th and Main? I mean, given they're chains I assume they just have some radius algorithm that decides whe...

There are definitely a few places. I just think in general we have a dearth of good retail locations available.

Re: AMC and Ten Main Center

per a tenant in the building, they're converting some additional floors to residential. the whole building is going residential. They are just doing a few floors out a time so they didn't have to kick all the office tenants out at once. We were told that they were converting the top several floors-...

Re: AMC and Ten Main Center

well it's not like there is a lack of ground level retail spaces. There is an aching need for 10x, 20x, 100x the ground level retail space. Agreed--a lot of the existing vacant retail spaces aren't very well suited for many types of businesses, IMHO. They've been crammed with low ceilings into the ...

Re: AMC and Ten Main Center

The word on the street used to be that Mildred's was going to move to Commerce Tower so they'd have an exterior entrance. no longer a thing. Interesting. I'd like to see them move somewhere, but I worry that ground floor space in Ten Main is too large and would swallow their operation. Perhaps it c...

Any idea if what they are doing in the first floor / basement area? Notta. They've been mum about that southeast corner and I haven't seen much of any activity there, so I'm assuming there's nothing on the immediate horizon. if they were wise, they'd move mildred's to that spot.
