Possible Addition to Grand Center Coming Soon?

"A $3M building permit was issued late last month for a long awaited rooftop garden atop the Big Brothers Big Sisters building in St. Louis’ Grand Center arts district. The project had be rumored earlier this year, with BSI Constructors being named general contractor. An invitation to bid on components of the project was released by BSI in May. Project images had appeared on the HDA Architects website, but are no longer posted.

Images show a contemporary dining and event space labeled Bistro 501. If the design remains similar to that pictured, the addition will be very prominent from street level as it sits above the three-story corner building. The space will be approximately 2,000sf and available for special events. There has been no announcement as to whether it will be open to the public on a daily basis. Construction is scheduled to begin yet this year." (View the rest on NextStl)

I think this looks great! The Grand Center is one of the most undervalued areas in St Louis if you ask me. This would be a great addition!
