Gateway FurMeet is an annual anthropomorphic convention that takes place in downtown St. Louis Missouri. We come together in celebration of art, literature, and performance based around anthropomorphic animals.
Gateway Fur Meet was created under its parent non-profit organization, Arch Regional Furry Fandom. 2013, our very first convention was held on the weekend of April 18th to the 20th 2014.
The seeds of Gateway Fur Meet are being laid in St. Louis MO for the start of our own local convention based on the gateway to the west. A center of states near and far to come together to celebrate the Furry Fandom and all it has to offer.
DISCLAIMER: Gateway FurMeet is not associated or apart of ARF (Arch Regional Furs). It is in fact its own separate entity.

One City Center is an office tower complex and former shopping mall in St. Louis, Missouri.The 25-story office tower is the ninth-tallest habitable building in St. Louis at a height of 375ft. The mall was four stories with a green, white, and glass façade. When the mall opened in 1985, St. Louis Centre was the largest urban shopping mall in the United States, with over 150 stores with 20 restaurants in 1500000ft2. The $95 million complex was originally to be developed by the May Company and called May Mall, but development for the mall was given to the Simon Property Group.St. Louis Centre opened in 1985, with anchor stores Famous-Barr at one end and Dillard's at the other. The anchor location of Famous-Barr was the company's flagship outlet and also contained that company's corporate offices, and the corporate headquarters of the May Company. The Dillard's location was once the flagship, and headquarters of Stix, Baer and Fuller, with that chain being sold to Dillard's just as mall construction commenced. The mall was initially popular and featured national chain stores. As the 1990s progressed, the mall faced challenges with the redevelopment of the former Westroads Shopping Center into the St. Louis Galleria. By the mid-1990s, Dillard's converted its location into one of its clearance stores, and no longer carried regular day-to-day merchandise, this location closed for good in 2001. In 2006, the almost-vacant "dead mall" closed, and was bought by The Pyramid Companies and was planned to be turned into condominiums and retail space, though the plan was never realized, as Pyramid closed in 2008 due to financial troubles. The mall was foreclosed in 2009 by lender Bank of America and later bought for $12.7 million by Environmental Operations. In 2009, the building was about 85% vacant, and other developers were trying to raise funding for a renovation of the mall. Plans included a $35 million renovation, turning much of the complex into parking space, as well as a $29 million project to attract tenants to the center's office tower. The project, led by investor Stacy Hastie, includes plans for local law firm Lewis, Rice & Fingersh and accounting firm LarsonAllen LLP to move into the building. Earlier, the Missouri Development Finance Board had approved a $5 million loan for the project. In May 2010, work began to convert part of the building into a 750-car parking garage and retail/entertainment complex called Mercantile Exchange. The skybridges to the Famous-Barr Railway Exchange Building and the former Stix, Baer and Fuller / Dillard's store have now been demolished to open up Washington and Locust streets.
The Railway Exchange Building is a 84.4m, 21-story high-rise office building in St. Louis, Missouri. The 1914 steel-frame building is in the Chicago school architectural style, and was designed by architect Mauran, Russell & Crowell. The building was the city's tallest when it opened, and remains the second-largest building in downtown St. Louis by interior area, with almost 1200000ft2 of space.The building was long home to the flagship store of the Famous-Barr chain of department stores — and the headquarters of its parent company May Department Stores — until the brand was bought by Macy's; the store was converted to a Macy's in 2006. Macy's decided to sell the building in 2008 and finally closed the store in 2013.
