|Syndicate Condos Open This Sunday 1-3|
Back when developers were trying to turn abandoned refrigerator boxes into loft condos, things seemed imbalanced. It seemed like every every vacant building downtown had plans for new luxury lofts, and the "Doing Business Downtown" pages of those years business journal spoke almost entirely about more Downtown lofts. Even without a recession, things would have needed to change.
Now its been almost 5 years since a hammer has been picked up for loft condos and downtown is still moving forward. It seemed that more and better residential construction was just the beginning for downtown. St Louis loft dwellers would have told you what was needed all along: stuff to do. CityGarden, Old Post Office Plaza, tons of restaurants and cafe's, Peabody Opera House, have all added to the livability factor that was missing when the loft boom started.
This weeks paper talks about the next phase, with MX adding the National Blues Museum, Pi, and a cool new concept-an upscale adults-only movie theater. This takes adds life to the area east of the convention center, which is long overdue.

As the real estate market seems to be coming back to life and the downtown market is picking up, its nice to see the momentum continue with more things happening and better livability than what the first bunch of 'loft dwellers' could enjoy.

The renaissance continues and Downtown St Louis is coming together nicely.
