Over the next couple of weeks, Downtown’s dramatic revitalization will acquire a new sound: 90 days of nearly round-the-clock pounding, grinding, and hauling as old Busch Stadium is demolished and trucked to make way for new Busch Stadium.

Fortunately, the nearest sleepers to the din will be visitors staying at the adjacent hotels, not us. Let’s hope they go home and tell their friends that Progress is loudly apparent in St. Louis.

And, before you feel too sad for the affected hotels, remember that they are already preparing marketing material happily proclaiming themselves “steps from the new ballpark and Ballpark Village.”
