Nobody had anything nice to say about a condo proposal in Clayton

“It’s probably the least inspirational building I’ve been proposed for a downtown.”

CLAYTON, Mo. (KMOX) — Nobody had anything good to say about a major 21-story condo tower proposed for Clayton Monday night.

The Lawrence Group's Steve Smith is among those who've signed on to work on former hotelier Fred Kummer's 180-million dollar plan. He made the pitch to the Clayton planning commission.

It's a brick tower that some on social media say looks like it belongs better in Miami Vice or Pyongyang... and Clayton planning commission chairman Steve Lichtenfeld doesn't disagree.

Then, the rest of the Clayton planning commission got their licks in.

Graybar, a major company based in Clayton, also doesn't like it.

And with all that said, Smith said it's back to the drawing board.
