**update** Here's a story posted yesterday about the building on nextSTL
The Subway sandwich shop currently located next to John Donut on Broadway will soon be moving into new digs at the corner of 7th and Geyer. The owner and his architect worked closely with representatives from the Soulard Restoration Group on the design of the building. Make a point to walk by the building sometime this weekend. Maybe grab some ice cream at Soulard Sweet Treats?
The chairs are already in the building so it can't be very long now. The building also has two two-bedroom apartments located above it. No word on what the rent will be.
Google has pictures of the lot from September of 2007 up to 2011. The site didn't get any better until they started building this building. Say what you will about not wanting a "chain restaurant" in Soulard. Feel better? Now please stop and enjoy this great addition to the neighborhood.
