Sam Koplar was spotted checking out the Clayton real estate market with what friends say is a possible move of Koplar Enterprises from its downtown Jello-tower of indecision.Koplar is currently located in the Gateway Tower at One Memorial Drive.
Based on a past interview in St. Louis Magazine, Sam Koplar seems to have an appreciation for the city and the need for a thriving urban core:
Sam talks about bringing the younger generation back into the city and making it more urban. He has his grandfather’s attitude: Out with the old, in with the new. He wants to tackle developments that will make St. Louis stand out as a big city. He says he doesn’t understand peers who graduate from college and move to the county as if they’re ready to retire.Moving his family's business out of downtown to Clayton certainly won't help matters any.
“It’s like that movie Groundhog Day out there,” he says of the monotony he thinks that life affords.
Come on, Sam - Don't do it!
