600 Washington Designer Contest

The St. Louis Business Journal, now relocated in the Old Post Office, has always been a wealth of information about the rebirth of Downtown. The first thing I do after the mail comes on Friday is scour the paper for downtown news.

This week the paper had an article about Pyramids redevelopment of St. Louis Centre. Of course, this redevelopment may be the most anticipated since the construction of the Gateway Arch. Some basics: 120 units, prices starting at $155,000 through $800,000, first floor retail facing the street with pool and courtyard inside for owners. All & all it sounds like a plan.

At the Pyramid Sales office lately I've been looking at the three different arcitechtural renderings for the building and the one selected seemed like the top contender. As described in the article though, it was a difficult decision to go with a firm who was also a competing developer. Its so nice to see everyone playing nicely in the downtown sandbox!
