Re: Plaza move-ins (ongoing)

I can't think of any off the top of my head. I have advocated on here before about redeveloping shopping malls by building a lot more on-site apartment buildings--especially taking into accounts the needs of seniors. This includes things like libraries, community centers, assisted-living and nursing...

Re: OFFICIAL - ARTerra (21st and Wyandotte)

I also like the contrast compared to surrounding buildings. Chicago and Detroit are full of older tan-colored brick houses and buildings. In fact, it seems there are more tan-colored buildings in Detroit than red-colored brick. This conversation reminded me of one I had years ago outside the downtow...

Re: Politics

I find some of the immigration really interesting.

According to a Business Journal article on endangered buildings the Christian Scientist church is to be torn down and replaced with a 13 story office tower.

Re: How Kansas City got its' name

I am not saying the Kanza tribe didn't exist, or that they didn't have villages. I am saying there was no official federal territory or state in the United States yet named after them when Kansas City was being settled. The Kansas Territory was established May 30, 1854. Kansas City, Missouri was inc...

I like the purple streak. They should put a strip of purple terracotta tile there to cover that purple insulation. Some color in that neighborhood would be nice.

The two outer lanes of the drive-through will become ITMs — an internet-based hybrid cousin of the ATM. Mark Moberly, Sunflower’s director of development, said it w...
