Negotiations Continue Over Busch Stadium Apartment Tower

ST. LOUIS (KMOX) - What happens to a high-rise apartment tower planned across from Busch Stadium, now that a deal for the land's been cancelled?

The tower, if built, would've cast a shadow over the stadium.

HDA Architects wanted to buy and tear down this brick building currently owned by St. Louis Community College. It's at 300 S. Broadway, catty-corner to Ballpark Village’s planned residential tower.  But in a letter, college chancellor Jeff Pittman says the deal is done because HDA's due diligence period had passed.

But the architecture firm disagrees, says just because one deadline's passed doesn't mean they're giving up, it just takes time to put together a complicated financial deal for a skyscraper like this.
