Looks like it might be a primer coat. It's darker on the side to the right.
Yes, the grey is a primer coat. Black is the final color. I misunderstood the original post.
Is that for signage backing?

Re: Aggressive panhandlers

Now that downtown has been sapped of it's non-resident street life, we're back to the occasional jogger, dog walker, homeless, and panhandler. For those new the scene, this is what it was like on nights/weekends until about 2010? It still feels way busier to me. The number of newly built apartments...

About as likely as the football stadium that was going to go on that site. North St. Louis is now as bad, or worse, than East St. Louis.

Nice to finally see the sidewalk cleared after so many years.
Now they just need to clean up skid row Aka 39th Street - Why is this stretch of KC so sketchy
Alkazar Apartments? I kind of assumed that was a low income/halfway house. Am I wrong?

Re: Parlor - 1707 Locust

Wow this place is overpriced. Sushi joint was very underwhelming. I recommend the lunch box (sort of like a bento?) at Sura Eats. $10. It is excellent. That's what I got. it was 19$ with a drink and tip. Unimpressed. At 10$ it would have been fine I guess. Bento Box $13, fountain drink $2 plus tax ...

Re: 34th Terrace & Main

So any word on the success of this building? Not seeing any other prefab high rises going up. Thought this was going to start a trend.

Did notice there is ground floor retail but it's sat empty so far.

Also, what happened to Darlene?

I think it's a good sign they are trying to shed land to actual developers. Not for Cerner but for the area.

Re: Status and future of the River Market area??

Hey LastGentleman, what site do you use to host your photos? They load incredibly slow for me. I don't have the same problem with other photos on this site. Also, thank you for taking the time and effort to provide us all with these great photos. Glad you enjoy them! I use Imgur to host everything....
