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?
i believe so....something has, there's two cranes up downtown. i'm in the central west end a lot more than downtown, so not sure what those cranes are over right now.

Re: St. Louis/CWE studio gang skyscraper proposal

the view down west pine (the above photo of west pine at the intersection w/ euclid) is becoming semi-unrecognizable, and much more urban/active than before with the shake shack, apartments/condos/balconies, the new pub built into the ground floor of the older residential building, and whole foods w...

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?

i've always thought that a new stadium should be in the sort of south/southeast corner of the crossroads where there is an offensive amount of almost nothing but parking lots. it would be within walking distance of vastly underutilized, extant parking/parking garages and some transit, including now ...

gateway arch national park

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.

Re: Divide MO into two states?

st. louis and (especially) kc should be centered inside their new states as the capitals.

the above map is probably a better arrangements that the current setup, though! at least both regions are fully within one state!

Re: Divide MO into two states?

No. The cities in the lower one third of Missouri provide economic value to the state. Branson is a tourist trap, Springfield has the 2nd largest university in the state, and Joplin is trying to make a comeback. Too much revenue would be lost. the ozarks are one of the consistently poorest parts of...

Re: Three Light

i dont think nashville has any kind of history of big civic works like midwestern cities do (not that transit votes are often any better but sometimes they are). i think this plan was overly ambitious, however. denver style jumbo-plans are not the way to go in most interior cities. chipping away at ...

it's still has a bass-ackward metro region surrounding an overheated core.
