Latest Plan for St. Louis Centre: Parking

At least that's what I inferred today from a story in the St. Louis Business Journal.

SCR Investments plans to convert a bulk of the former St. Louis Centre mall into parking for One City Centre tenants and parking for tenants at the U.S. Bank Plaza office building at 505 N. Seventh St. The entire St. Louis Centre/One City Centre development has been renamed 600 Washington.

I've got calls out to St. Louis Deputy Mayor Barb Geisman and another developer involved in the project to confirm whether the Business Journal article is indeed correct on this.

In the meantime, who's keeping track of downtown building and projects turned to parking lots or -- worse -- empty fields? Let's see, there's the Century Building, Ballpark Village....
