Re: P&L District: 13th & Walnut Site Proposal

Again, Jeff Stehney is quoted as saying that he will never open a Joe's in the state of Missouri.

Guess this is his way of staying true to his word.

Re: Downtown New Residential Units

i hear lots of buildings are offering deals or lowering prices. how long does that happen before projects in the pipeline start to get jittery? When new buildings come on line, people involved are always jittery. There is pressure to perform and get cash flow going. As result, 'a month free with a ...

Re: Streetcar Opposition

OK, I looked up the CID statutes . And as I suspected, no, that's not correct, loftguy. Changes in taxes assessed under a CID, and appointments to the CID board, must be approved by a majority of "qualified voters". These are defined at §67.1401(14): I'm not qualified to interpret the sta...

Note that the apartments proposed for Manor Square will be inside the boundaries of the Westport CID, and the apartments proposed for the BoA site will be inside the Broadway CID's boundaries. What happens when residents are added to a formerly unpopulated jurisdiction of this sort? Does it automat...

Re: A vision for 8th St between Main/Broadway as pedestrian only

You are right. 4th Street east of Grand has in fact been vacated by the city. It is no longer under public control. Since they're now in private ownership someone needs to buy up all the properties along that corridor and create a village. 300 units of housing and a retail pedestrian mall sounds good.

What the current Drugstore culture is doing is to serve as an entrepreneurial pollinator. There's so much new and ...
