Love this idea! Cannot wait!
It's such a great idea to copy the part of Citygarden that didn't work out.
Container construction can be done a million diffrent ways. Anything from portable living quarters that Amanda is more than likely referring to. Up to Very nice multi level homes complete with air conditioning. I've been a fan of container homes for a long time.
sorry for the slam Bryan..
Guess what! A/C.
Yeah, just reminds me of my last deployment :/
these things are like ovens in the sun.. don't envy any workers there this coming summer ...
Jobs that pay well?
I love love love that St. Louis is getting on the repurposed structure bandwagon. Long overdue. Cherokee is the perfect spot for this sort of revitalization. Props to all involved!
Surrounded by ghetto, unlike the artists rendering!

This is awesome... Recycling old pods for food... I've seen and read about these being used as homes; excited to see it being used in our own city.
Seems like a very interesting concept and design for a restaurant. I simply wish that new developments on Cherokee -- with this amount of capital, thought, press-attention and enthusiasm behind them -- were not consumer-driven but service-based. This restaurant, like much of the new development on the street, caters to leisure amenities for the middle to upper classes. It's important to remember that this area of the city is still one of the most poverty-stricken south of the North Side. For whom, then, is a restaurant like this for? Additions such as the Empire Cafe -- and all the other eateries, bars, boutiques and cafes now on Cherokee -- would not appear as problematic if they were off-set by just as many necessary civic and infrastructural resources that are otherwise still sadly missing.
Very excited for this - Colleen is an amazing chef!
WOOT WOOT FOR SAINT LOUIS AWESUME
i bet they will serve lots of awesome sauce there

@PoundsMedia @RiverfrontTimes sweet. There's a liquid nitrogen ice cream shop in SF built in a shipping container smittenicecream.com
@cherokeeresident Cherokee Street provides both basic and recreational amenities. I don't think you actually live on Cherokee, or else you might have noticed the 2 Mexican grocery stores, Save-A-Lot, Dollar General, a Salvation Army, and 2 furniture rental stores. There is a park and recreational center blocks away. A few churches. There are several corner stores, urban clothing retail shops, and Chinese takeaway. That is all walking distance. If you've got a car you have everything around Grand and Chippewa.
I can get pretty much all of my daily needs within walking distance of my apartment on Cherokee and Texas. The rest I bike to. I am low income.
@blakedell @RiverfrontTimes woah- we need one in St. Louis!!!
