A 40-Story Office Tower?

Paul McKee is starting to provide more details on his ambitious plans for his property holdings, which are concentrated primarily in north St. Louis. Downtown, however, figures in to his plans as well.

McKee is in talks with MODOT to reconfigure the Highway 40/22nd Street interchange into a typical diamond interchange, freeing up additional land for development.

Then, at the western end of the Gateway Mall (near the reconfigured 22nd Street interchange), a 40-story office tower and "corporate campus" would be constructed, provided a lead tenant or tenants could be procured. Given McKee's experience working with MasterCard and Express Scripts, maybe this idea is not so far-fetched.

Could this be this be related to this?
