Re: Beacon Hill

Yes, I saw that article. It's a shame all those parcels are tied up in controversy. That has certainly caused problems for the 18th and Vine District because it has held back residential development that might support some retail shops there. I don't know that single family houses would be the best ...

Re: Chouteau Courts to be demolished / Paseo Gateway Plan

I noticed yesterday that workers were removing a roof on one of the Chouteau Courts apartment buildings, so demolition appears to have started.

Re: Companies moving downtown

I’m not saying this isn’t possible - I just don’t think they gain much if anything for the additional cost and complexity. Don’t get me wrong I’ll miss the building if it does go. That said, it’s tough for a building like that to prove its worth to a developer/business owner. And yet two similarly-...

Re: Companies moving downtown

If you remove the parking garage and then take down that rock outcropping behind it, you would have a level L-shaped site. One could do that without disturbing the old IBM Building. One could have built the old Power & Light Tower on its' footprint on the west side of that parcel and not disturbed t...

Re: OFFICIAL - Strata (H&R Block's 2nd Tower)

Large entrance lobbies were a status symbol for companies in big cities starting in the 1950s. Go into most office buildings before that and the lobbies were smaller. Basically it would be a narrow corridor with an elevator bank on one side, or both. Most base street-level space went to retail. I've...

Re: Companies moving downtown

You are also assuming that the IBM Building couldn't be renovated for a smaller firm, and have a new structure wrapped around it on the remaining block which wouldn't have to be a tower.

Re: Crown Center: urban disaster, shining star, or in-between

I say leave Union Cemetery alone. There are several old urban cemeteries in dense parts of Paris, and they add to the charm of the city.
