Concealing the Future St. Louis Centre Garage
As I mentioned in my last post, I am eager to see a rendering of the redeveloped St. Louis Centre.
One thing I'm curious about is how the two Locust Street entrances to the property will be addressed.
In particular, the southeastern entrance is set back from the street and faces an open plaza (see picture above). With a parking garage going into the southern half of the former mall, there really isn't any reason why it would need a formal entrance plaza. This space could easily accomodate the construction of a new building, which would help to conceal the garage and add density.
Is there any reason to leave this space open?
