my shoot from the hip guess is that it will be a satellite of the mastercard tech headquarters, which has over 2500 employees. corporations in chicagoland do this when they have a split workforce of people who live an hour from downtown and a ton of reverse commuters.

I know many of you that post in this forum are frequenters of urbanstl.com. But, for those that aren't, this thread (and the contruction pix) is fantastic.

Photo update...

Live! by Loews
Work on the lobby has started as well as some of the rooms. Black window dividers still need to be installed and the Live! by Loews sign should be installed sometime next month. The chips in the precast concrete are being patched. The construction elevator should come down soon as Missouri Elevator Records specify that equipment is being installed. The white walls at street level could be clad in cream/yellow brick, like the second-floor area, but I can't confirm that. After this, sidewalks will be poured. We could be looking at a late November reopening of the sidewalks between 8th and the Budweiser Beer Garden.

OneLife Fitness and the Field of Dreams
A concert was held here last night, the first with the new stage and Field. The OneLife building continues to have glass installed and the brickwork is nearly complete. The entire building should be enclosed by the end of October.

Cardinal Way (West) and the Pedway
As the OneLife building is enclosed and the Peanntn Building prepares to open, the area between the two should soon begin heavy equipment removed and pavers laid along with stringed lights and some trees. For Cardinal Way, trees have been planted and curbs are being built. Crews will plan a few more trees and will use pavers on the sidewalks. After that, the street lights will be installed. If you're in St. Louis, look for the first pavers to be laid some point this week.

The PwC Pennant Building
The side facing the hotel is continuing to prepared ahead of the mural wall. On the Cardinal Way side, the process should begin on the corners within the next week. Also, the spotlights that light up the brick are officially on. The lobby lights are on and the marble backsplash has been installed based on August photos from Paric (first photo). The lobby will have a vestibule to allow people into a retail space and into the lobby. Sidewalks are being poured underneath the entry awning. The Northwest retail space has glass being installed and crews will be installing the last brick precast panels on the 8th Street side this week.

One Cardinal Way
Today was the second to last crane jump for the building. The building should be topped out by the end of December according to the crane operator. The leasing sign was taken down as work on the billboard will soon begin.

Does anyone know when the last 10+ story, or even 5+ story built in downtown was? It seems like this is the biggest and the only development in Downtown STL that I can think of.

Would be interesting to see a comparative list like this for neighboring cities - OKC, Omaha, KC, Des Moines, Little Rock, Minny and Nashville.

Nashville wipes the floor with STL and KC in terms of development over the last 20 years. Don't know about Oklahoma City or Omaha but I'm sure we both beat Des Moines and Little Rock. Minneapolis and KC are probably similar. Indianapolis is somewhere in between Nashville and Minneapolis.

I snagged this from UrbanSTL. IMHO, I don't think One Cardinal Way could get any uglier. The residential tower itself is a solid 6 out 10 but the massive dark grey garage draws the entire project down to a 2 or 3 at most.

It's a back lit, under exposed photo taken at dusk. How can you tell it's actually *dark* grey?

What do you bet that is similar to what Copaken will build at 12th and Grand.
