Re: Postcards From the Edge of Time

Am I seeing correctly that Commerce Trust used to be open in the center of the building? I wonder when that changed.

Re: Old Federal Reserve (925 Grand)

Lane drop in place on both 10th and Grand. Traffic control permit says "construction on The Reserve". No plans on Compass so I assume this must just be maintenance?

EDIT: An interior demo permit was issued 10/19/18. So...this is moving forward albeit slowly?

What's being built just east or possibly northeast of the Health Department (~24th & Troost)? I noticed a crane and what looked like new construction over there this morning, but I was running late for work so didn't have time to detour over to see it.
I *think* that is the new hotel.

Re: East Village Transit Center

Why is the default proposal always to take a vacated parcel and add green space? :roll: We already have under-utilized green spaces/parks downtown: Ilus Davis Park, Oppenheimer Park, Barney Allis Plaza. Oh, and KCMO has a terrible history maintaining parks. Any green space here will end up being wh...

Re: Downtown office vacancy

I'm surprised Cordish hasn't built some office downtown. Aren't they building an 8-10 story office building in downtown St. Louis along with One Cardinal Way apartments? Surely St. Louis' office vacancy rate is much higher with AT&T emptying out their office tower downtown. Isn't this the under the...

It's more space, plus we're able to go to a single entrance drive on 12th and exit drive on Charlotte. The routes that serve the new transit center on 12th Street will be in a bus-only contraflow lane on all westbound/inbound trips (with two-way cycletrack) . =D> Shall we just go ahead and bring th...

Does this have the same bus capacity as 10th and main? Seems like it's less.
I think it has considerably greater capacity. Not to mention bathrooms and better shelter.

Approved. Construction starts in November.
Were any negotiations or changes had regarding the Walnut facade?
I'm told two parking spaces were sacrificed to address the issue. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Re: Phase 2 streetcar to UMKC

Some interesting thoughts here. I think streetcar extension to UMKC, if it remains free, will be a game changer, despite concerns about traffic/trip length. It makes the existing line exponentially more valuable, connects the two densest job and investment centers in the region and runs directly th...

Re: Phase 2 streetcar to UMKC

I think this hot take ignores the potential for future density along the route and all throughout midtown. It also ignores the potential of recreating/improving our midtown streets as car trips are replaced by streetcar (and bus and bike--and walking due to future density).

Looks much better with the scaffolding gone, especially the south side. North side looks kind of European utilitarian.
There’s a ‘business in the front...’ joke in there somewhere.
May we please call this building The Mullet?
