Two different business owners in the area have told me there are plans to turn the El Torreon into a nightclub with dining, entertainment and dancing.
that's basically what all the XstraightedgeX hardcore shows that i went to there were.

Re: StL Blues break ground for new practice facility in StL Co

I could honestly see the next Blues Arena being built in the burbs also, following the line of thinking with the Braves new stadium. I'm sure Blues country is much larger in the West County areas rather than South County and the Illinois Side as far as i know, the financing on the scottrade renovat...

Re: Urbanism and Pros and Cons of Gentrification

To echo one of chaglang's points, i think the effects of gentrification in KC are more felt among renters than buyers. It has always been true, even in KC, that folks will seek out "marginal" areas so their money will go farther in buying a home, which can result in these neighborhoods becoming mor...

centene 2 is about topped out, this photo is a couple months old but has glass going up the sides of it now. it's really a monolithic presence in clayton and looms over even university city, now.

Re: Big New STL Apartment Building

edit: no, they just vacated the building to be demo'd. the cranes are all ballpark village stuff. it does seem like they are now trying to fast track the project, however.

Nice tower, has this began construction?

Re: Big New STL Apartment Building

nice to see that area filling in...for a lot of people, this chunk of downtown IS downtown, or at least its front door, for better and worse. generally it's nice to see some cranes downtown (instead of just clayton and the cwe) and some fresh glass going up on it...that mess of surface parking aroun...

Re: Would you like to see the Royals move to a downtown stadium?

The reopening of 100% of the new gateway arch national park is next tuesday, including the completely new underground museum and entrance - the result of well over 1/3 of a BILLION dollars in renovation, retrofitting, and new construction.
