What is It?
City Affair’s February 2012 meeting will be a casual event with no set speakers or topics.
That said, there’s still a lot to talk about.
The excellent Count on Downtown blog, run by Frank DeGraaf (AKA “the Count”) was not content to wait for Paul McKee’s vision for what the neighboring Bottle District might become. The Count devised his own plan — an ambitiously expanded convention center facility with a retractable roof.
What do you think? (See his rendering below). This would be the view across the street from Shady Jack’s if the Count’s vision came to fruition.
Oh and let’s not forget the CityArchRiver 2015 competition!
Alex Ihnen, editor of the popular web site nextSTL, had a lot to say about the recently updated plans for the Archgrounds. Read his article here. Spoiler alert if you didn’t yet tune in to his comments: they’re not positive. What do you think? Is Alex spot on, or is he being too harsh? Let’s discuss!
No idea what the hell any of this is about? We’ll catch you up to speed. Just meet us at Shady Jack’s (transit accessible via the #40 Broadway, and close to the Laclede’s Landing and Convention Center MetroLink stations as well).
