Everyone wants new, shiny things, but STL can not afford it. As for D, it really is not in that bad shape overall, I am told. Gates can be activated easily and that is why WN is creeping down the concourse. Now, the purple carpeting is out of date and appearance is ugly, but the underlying facilities work fine.
I have been down at the new gates a couple times and as you mentioned they are fine. They redid the entire thing with tile and updated it so it looks good. Pretty much the entire airport has been renovated in the last 6 years or so now. They are doing work in the FIS area now and adding more security lines in T2. It might not be the ideal layout but it is good enough not to hinder any growth.
