National Fan Base

Downtown Loft FansIn the past year, its been tough keeping up with the tremendous amount of press that our downtown renaissance has gotten. A friend from afar, the New York Times, has published on our city several times in the past couple years. Outside of the St. Louis Business Journal--downtown's biggest fan--the Times has had lots of favorable write-ups.

This weeks article discusses the turning point that developer's and loft buyer's are beginning to face. Since most of the projects have stopped offering tax abatment, the market has continued without significant disruption. Now it's the developer's turn: will they continue to build without the incentives that they have been granted that helped start this movement? The answer seems like a clear, "yes" at this point.
