Official groundbreaking today. What I read said that it would "add 425 jobs," but I am sure that is the spin without taking the losses into account when the Med School moves.


So that was why a tent was set up on the SE corner... Looks like most of the grading is done...

Quite the spin on jobs as this is the clinic/ER that is "replacing" the hospital.

Apparently long term plans call for a new $82 million dental school on this site.

Here's another rendering! From STLToday

This I believe is supposed to be the new ambulatory clinic.

That's the replacement for the hospital that is currently under construction on the north west corner of 24th and Cuming. The viewer in that rendering is facing almost due north, a little northwest.

The south entrance (left side of this pic) is the Emergency department and the upper floor entrance is on the north side for the CHI Clinic.

Are there any airspace restrictions outside of the airport? What kind of distance and height can you hit with it? Can you take video with yours? There are certain points of view that would be incredible...depending on the rules.

It's a strict 400 foot limit, decreasing to 0 feet around sensitive areas.
The good news (IMO) is that with the Phantom 3 those rules are enforced by the drone itself.

The P3 Pro does 4K video, the P3 Advanced only 1080p.

Gotta stay away from traffic and people of course, so I haven't gotten a chance to look at the 24th street hotel yet...

Nice shots with the drone.

Every Year I keep saying "This is the last year I am doing aerial photos" because of all the drones out there. But I did it again a couple weeks ago.

Here are two Photos I got on 6/19/2015

Couple of cool videos:

-Start at ground level and ascend up the side of first national, as high as it is allowed.
-A fly through of the old market just above traffic level
-A fly beside of the pedestrian bridge
-Fly around (in a circular pattern) HoA park fountain
-A low level fly over of TDAP during a game

Some or none of them may be do-able, but they would be cool to see

I suppose you almost could add TipTop to the list. I haven't heard anything in a while, but when it opened, wasn't this an unofficial Off Campus dorm for spoiled kids?

I found this interesting tidbit in the Creighton University student guidebook... Does anyone know if the golden key and elevator is for real or was the student editor just having a lark?

"Directly across from Deglman Hall is Creighton Hall or the Administration Building. Creighton Hall was the first campus building constructed in 1877. Many departments reside here including the President’s Office. Today 36 Jesuits live in the top floor of Creighton Hall, which students can only see if personally invited by a Jesuit. To get to the Jesuit residences in Creighton Hall you must have a key, which only the Jesuits have, to open and operate the Golden Elevator, the elevator which goes to the top floor."

When the old scoreboard was new it had one. The new one has some sort of digital display on the bottom, but seems a bit wide for a "video board".

Jays facilities on Twitter posted several photos. The bottom section is a digital board, but I have yet to see any video on it, just an american flag and a CU logo.

Waste of space. If we want density we need to stop allowing suburban buildings from being built.
