THE BIG FIX

A desperate St. Louis pays top dollar to gamble on a risky convention-center hotel

Time in this particular corner of the world seems to have come to a standstill, but the future is closing in. McNeill, Bivens' boss, reiterates that he doesn't want to vacate the building and says he's concerned about his employees as well. He then offers his view of the hotel project.

Wallace McNeill, whose business stands in the way of the convention-center hotel: "I can't get a straight answer out of anyone."

"I honestly think it's time for the people of this city to know what's going on in relation to this fiasco," says McNeill. "St. Louisans should start asking questions of the developer. If, in fact, this convention-center hotel is so important to the city of St. Louis and to the people of St. Louis, then I think someone has to figure out why nothing ever happens on this thing. It's absolutely beyond my comprehension. I think the pyramids in Egypt were built quicker than this convention-center hotel."
