I'll second that - when they were planning phase 1 I had wanted the route to be more of a loop. Having it run down the same street works so much better.

Re: OFFICIAL - Loews Convention Hotel (formerly Hyatt)

On the live cam it looks like they are putting in the base of another tower crane on the upper portion of the construction site.

Re: Phase 2 streetcar to UMKC

Here are yesterday's presentations. I question the need for a 43rd and 45th stop. I agree it seems like overkill... Three stops in a half mile (43rd/45th/Emanuel Cleaver II Blvd) is the same density of stops as inside the loop. My first thought was if the presence of the 45th street stop is an indi...

Re: Fantasy Retrofits: Barney Allis Plaza

I'm of the opinion that the park needs the residential development on top of it. A park is a reflection of its surroundings, and right now it is surrounded by only large single uses, which to me translates to a sporadically used park. It will have moments when its busy (i.e. lunch on a beautiful day...

Re: Three Light

There's a rendering I don't think we've seen before in this document prepared for the Chapter 353 board.

FYI - It is marked as a preliminary rendering, but it has the building at approx 30 stories, and a roofline that tilts eastward over the top 4 stories

KCDowntown - what did you make of the other agenda items? The Main st. project rings a bell. What about the 19th and Oak line item? This is 100% conjecture, but the only project I know of in this area is the new Milhaus development - 19th & Oak is the NW corner of that block of land they just b...

Based on the webcam, it looks like the mobile crane they'll use to put up the tower crane is on site. BTW - this mobile crane looks like its going to be enormous.

Re: Another 16th & Main hotel

The base was located on the NE quadrant of the development site. Just as an FYI - I only saw it out of the corner of my eye, so I didn't see if the location was permanent or not.

Re: Three Light

The $300 million price tag on this development is what I found most interesting. For comparison, One Light supposedly cost 79 million and Two Light was initially priced at 105 million.

There's a zoning permit dated yesterday for the space at 1300 Grand for The Hookah Lounge KC. Looks like this is the corner under the Hotel Nightclub sign.

Is this the new tenant set to be announced?
