A Post-Dispatch article by Charlene Prost about a new office building to be built in Grand Center included this praiseworthy quote from Vince Schoemehl:
"We've got to do something to get rid of all these surface parking lots out here," Schoemehl said. "They're non-urban (and) create a negative image," he said. "Grand Center is not in the business of continuing to operate parking lots. We are in the business of developing this neighborhood."
