Off We Go




I've been working on a plan for over a year now to buy and renovate a commercial building in the city. For as many reasons as there are buildings in St. Louis it just hasn't worked out yet. I can finally announce that I have found a building that: a) is in an up and coming neighborhood b) that was actually on the market and c) I have been able to negotiate a reasonable price on.
I'm very excited. I'll have many posts as the long process progresses, but for now I just want to finally be able to discuss it in public. Yay!
There are still many hurdles, and it may not happen the way I am currently envisioning it, but it has the best chance of working of any project I've been trying to make happen to date. And for the record I don't think the Indian statue comes with the building. It is quite a marketing tool though. Everyone knows the big indian at Jefferson and Cherokee! Want to rent a space? Call me now! Get pre-construction pricing!!

It's Lisa, y'all said...

I am so excited for you. That's a totally cool building. Maybe one day we will make the drive up to see you guys and check out all this stuff in person. I wish I had some excuse like your house is 45 hours away and that's why we haven't been there, but you and I both know that's not the case. That's why we are so lame.

But I still like you guys, just so you know.
