Tomorrow, KC week begins and with that comes posts that showcase our neighboring City. Hope everyone enjoys the posts!
This old hospital is along Depmar near the beginning of the Loop Streetcsr route. This is a bad face for a area that is slowly coming back. The Delmar Strip has a big abandoned hospital on it. It was St. Luke's hospital at one time before it moved out to Chesterfield. Afterward, it became a city hospital then closed and now sits abandoned. A developer should come in and purchase the building and wreck it. The site should be transofotmed into a entertainment Headquarters continuing the Delmar Loops Expansion to the East towards Kingshoghway. But before this happens, security needs to web addressed so a successful development can be built and occupied instead of being waste of money.
The new hospitals are beginning to have glass and brick out up on the outside and from the looks of it already, it will make Kingshighway in Central West End look nicer. This will also give us a idea of how Queeny Tower will look when wrecked and rebuilt beginning January 2017. The new buildings are supposed to open up in January 2017.
The link that connects all of BJC's buildings is getting a edition. To connect the new employee parking garage and the new BJC Mid Campus Center, BJC is building a link addition that will connect the 2. It will be open by the end of the year or early next year. One issue has been run into though and that is that overhead power lines will need to be taken down to connect the link. The images show this problem. The link in CWE St. Louis for size comparison is longer than the Kansas City Link at the Crown Center. But both serve the same purpose and that is to get you to where you need to go quicker and safer. Safer from the street and elements since they are climate controlled. This link extension will also connect to the 2 new hospital buildings on the Northern End of the BJC Campus.
Get ready to see stories that will make our city seem like it is dying. Over the Next Week (May 1st-7th) You will see stories that talk about our neighboring city to the west and its explosive revival. These posts will be meant to showcase how our Civic Leaders have failed to allow growth in the city. The first post will be about the Power and Light District.
This area of Saint Lpuis along Lockwood Avenue is interesting. There are homes and businesses and even buildings that have existed for over 100 years. Lockwood Avenue is full of shops that are not part of big companies. They are family owned shops. This area is nice to take a stroll in on a nice day but it doesn't beat Central West End in my opinion.
It is getting pretty tall, at 5 floors out of the 12, it will be one of the taller buildings built in Central West End in the 2010's. It will be close to 200ft tall and add more retail and restaurants to the Euclid Avenue. It should be open early next year. This project is the largest one along the Lindell Corridor that makes a impact. However, not the same about Euclid. This project in height is larger than the Orion with Whole Foods but smaller in space.
A lot of progress has been made on the building and even 1 crane still remains. The glass is going up on the building. This building wil be enclosed possibly by July. This means that the momentum in the Central West End is beginning to die slowly for now, but there will be more development in the future.
It opened in 1957 to great fanfare, and after nearly 60 years, it is ready to come crashing down and make way for a new development that will be transformational to not only the city of Crestwood but to the entire St. Louis County. It was the first mall of the St. Louis area to include more than one anchor store. It was once an open air mall like to Chesterfield outlet malls. However, after several years and many expansions, the mall was finally in closed in the mid-1980s. It was one of the many other malls that were appearing in St. Louis to be very strong. But after the Galleria was expanded and West County Mall reopened up after reconstruction, Crestwood Mall fell into freefall and in July 2013, it finally shut its doors to the public. This is a brief overview of what this whole post will be about. It will be about the Rise, the Fall and the Eventual Closing of the once most popular mall in the St. Louis area.
The title says all. Under information, I updated my story and the media tab is back.
