About This File

One Metropolitan Square, also known as Met Square, is a skyscraper completed in 1989 in downtown St. Louis, Missouri. At 180.7 m (593 ft), it is the tallest building in the city, and second tallest building in Missouri behind One Kansas City Place in Kansas City.

Major tenants include architecture firm Hellmuth, Obata and Kassabaum, which also designed the building, the Bryan Cave law firm, the Evans & Dixon law firm, the Brown & Crouppen law firm, The Driscoll Firm,P.C. and Kemoll's Restaurant. There is also a banquet facility on the 42nd floor called Top of the Met.

The building was constructed by McCarthy Building Companies, Inc., the largest general contractor in St. Louis. In early May, 2014, a DJI Phantom quadcopter drone crashed into the building.





User Feedback

File stats? These are a must with any upload.

Also, I think it would be great if you had some sort of initialism or prefix to leave on your file names (since you don't include a readme) that would make it easy to identify your files.

I suggested this to Reddonquixote and now all his files have RDQ. I only think it's fair your creations afford the same recognition in our plugins folders (plus it makes diagnosing and identifying potential issues with these files much simpler, should any ever arise in the future).

Something like DDL? I dunno. Just a short whatever that is easy to remember and identify your work by.

I can second this thoughts. Anyway I usually do this myself with every downloadings, because otherwise I can get confused. 

Lately I started to reorganized my plugin folder and download folders. Every download got the same structure: main folder with the name or initials of the creator, the title and the type (for example: co$$$, park etc)/team (if there is)/creator/title.

Hell of a job and kind of endless, but it worths when I want to build a new plugin folder for a new city.

Thank you! 

For example with this upload that would be this: DDL - One Metropolitan Square 1.0.0

And what I'm going to do after I downloaded, after unzipping I put it under several subfolders. 

The main folder: DDL - One Metropolitan Square 1.0.0

And then the creator creator folder (this is what I usually copy into the plugin folder): Diego Del Llano

And the building name: One Metropolitan Square.

Yes.

 

You will be famous. And therefore you should sign your work. Makes it easier for us to recognize it, when we look in our plugin folders.

You know, Leonardo da Vinci didn't sign his work too. And look at the confusion he created.

      This month we're hoping for a little bit of a boost this month or next, in addition to covering the regular bills, we'd love to be able to do some hardware upgrades. STEX Collector's Set gifts can now be sent to you via digital download as well as regular mail if you wish! Every donation dollar goes toward keeping Simtropolis online and humming along. Your contribution is so meaningful, every dollar counts! Hardware Upgrades We've received a recommendation to consider some hardware upgrades to our ageing server. As our website community software improves with more and more features, and as we bolt on additional features such as chat, the increased load to handle all these new toys is taking the server a bit to task. You may have noticed that we'd been forced to temporarily disable the chat as we worked out allocating resources for more optimal performance. Following this, we've applied a number of 'soft' changes such as caching options and experimented with server configurations (nginx as proxy, for example), so the hardware aspect is also an area we'd like to focus on. The last time we upgraded hardware was back in 2012, prior to the release of SC13. Your contribution means a lot! Your donation will go toward helping us to 1.) migrate to a newer server or 2.) at least get some ram/cpu/storage updates and any other infrastructure hardware or services. Donate and Get a Gift or Donate Any Amount Thanks so much! - Dirktator & The Admins

      In order to conserve resources, we've disabled the global chatbar at the bottom of the site. Instead, the Chat can be accessed by clicking the top navigation tab. It will launch a new window. If you're not seeing this behavior, try clearing your browser's cache.

      Shopko was founded in 1962 by James Ruben, and its first store opened in Green Bay.
      In 2012, Shopko merged with Pamida, a regional discount chain that operated mainly in smaller communities of 3,000 to 8,000 people; all the stores were rebranded under the Shopko Hometown name.
