Lost Opportunity

So apparently the Skyhouse development has been cancelled. Too bad for the historic, if maligned buildings that once sat on the corner--the proposed site of the new tower.As can be seen above, the hole in the ground is now starting fill up with garbage.On a more positive note, it is a great opportunity to see how foundations in St. Louis's past were constructed.Note: this link to the Post-Dispatch article won't last forever. Uh, guys, in the future could you wait to knock down buildings until you're certain your project is going to go through? That block of Washington could have definitely supported a rehabbed storefront.
