Re: Five Light

Here is the cutout for the front entrance on Main Street. I assume they will also have an entrance on Baltimore.

Re: Five Light

The reception from people in St. Louis about this is more positive than not. They wish it could be here (that's what was said on my Twitter). Only one hated it. I know St. Louis has nothing to do with this but it's fun to see what people say. An UrbanSTL user by the name of "SymphonicPoet" says tha...

Re: Five Light

This. Copaken is building the project on a speculative basis, meaning he doesn’t have tenants in mind yet, but is confident that he can sign some to lease agreements before it opens in almost three years. Copaken’s news was probably music to Tim Cowden’s ears. Cowden, the chief executive of the Kans...

Re: Muehlebach Hotel / KC Club Project

It also solves a problem if businesses don't want to deal with a specific real estate company / developer. In a town the size of Kansas City, businesses can often have had a past dispute with a landlord. If that landlord is the only one with any sizeable holdings downtown, it explains why some compa...

Separate entrances, lobbies, and elevators solve that problem.

Re: Proposed tower on Plaza

The transaction must not have been completed yet, or the title information has yet to update because the city's parcel viewer says Highwoods still owns it.

Re: Hotel Bravo- 17th and Wyandotte

The compromise, if it receives incentives, should be that the design allows for easy conversion to residential if a hotel occupant moves on 20 years from now.

Re: Five Light

Seems designed as a co-working space on top of a large garage....Downtown direly needs a true large floor plate office tower to attract a major employer with hundreds of employees. Office design is changing with this next generation. No one has offices now, it’s all coworking space. Many times it’s...

Re: Five Light

With there being a need for new office space downtown, wonder why Cordish never ventured into a mixed use tower, especially given the incentives they were (previously) getting to help with the parking garage. Nine or ten stories for a garage with some of the spaces shared between office and residen...

I don't know who the architects are for the Urban North houses, but suspect they might be the same as are being used on Beacon Hill.

Re: Urban North Development off North Oak Trafficway

I just dig any new house that isn't beige/tan. Our new neighbors took a super tudor house and repainted it. It was brown with white trim and stained glass front windows, looked like something out of Ren Fest. They repainted it a dark grey. It looks good in person. I like me a gray house. https://ti...

Re: Five Light

Give us a courthouse sketch Normalthings. :lol:

If the Port Authority has agreed to finance the parking garage, and operate it, I would say this is not a vaporware project.
