    LHM SEEKS MAJOR LEAGUE SOCCER STADIUM AS PART OF NEW VISION FOR UNION STATION IN ST. LOUIS


    Lodging Hospitality Management is scheduled to close on their $20M purchase of the historic 1894 St. Louis Union Station today and they're not wasting any time thinking big. According to nextSTL sources, LHM is proceeding with extensive efforts to shoehorn a Major League Soccer stadium into the station site. The Post-Dispatch first reported that LHM, based at Westport Plaza, is thinking beyond reducing retail, expanding meeting space and rebranding the Marriott hotel to a Hilton Double Tree. LHM is hoping to return private train service to the station and add a transportation museum. The PD called it "the centerpiece of LHM's plan." But it's clear that LHM is thinking much bigger. The new owners seem to understand that the revitalization of Union Station will require more than a rebranded hotel and a museum.

    Early planning images show an ~20,000 seat soccer-specific stadium located between the train shed and I-64, though this is far from the only option. MLS stadiums of that size have cost between $60-100M to build over the past half dozen years. The stadium plan would also include office, some retail and possibly a residential component. If completed, the MLS stadium would provide the third major league sports venue on just 3/4 of a mile of Clark Street in downtown St. Louis. Although planning remains in the early stages, the vision has received interest from local tenants and some from outside the region.

    I've only been to St. Louis once, but I was at their Union Station. The old station, underneath the trainshed, has been repurposed into hotels, dining and shopping - it kind of has a Baltimore Inner Harbor vibe to it, sort of touristy. There's even an artificial pool with paddle boats and stuff.

    I was there on the day of a Cardinals-Cubs game and there were a lot of baseball fans milling around the place. I imagine when the Blues plays, it's the same sort of deal since the hockey arena is also right there. For a visitor, it's kind of neat but not something I'd go to with any regularity if I were a local, however a nice place to go for a bite when bundled together with taking in a ballgame.

    This would be a pretty sweet location for an MLS stadium. Beats the crap out of Colinsville, or wherever the previous StL plan was.

    I'd be stoked, if Jimador was not about my least favorite tequila. They are the most boring, most vodka-like of all the major tequila brands, Cuervo included. Milagro or even 1800 would have been much better.
