  1. Its great to see all of the construction, even if the Government is funding most of it. Would have loved to see the Lightner Center coming out of the ground as well!

  2. I don’t get why people are so down on the sky bridges. At least its something different. Might be cool to be able to stand up there and look down on traffic. St. Louis has a Science center with a skywalk over Highway 64/40 and its pretty awesome to stand out there and look down on everything. Its unique and connects the buildings in a functional way…again, I guess I just don’t get all the hate for these things.

  3. I thought they were a good idea, though I didn’t come up with it ;-)
    They connect the structures, they look cool, and it makes the whole thing like an interconnected complex instead of isolated buildings. It also makes an aesthetic “doorway” coming into the city.

  4. Well it was a requirement…those buildings needed to be connected. And I’m guessing tunnels cost twice as much to build…if not more.
