Re: Big New STL Apartment Building

Thank you Warwickland. I thought the same thing. Jeez. Find a vacant lot nearby to build the tower. So is the attraction to this parcel that the people in the new tower will be able to watch baseball games for free?

Re: The Netherland and Monarch on Main

Didn't some developer buy the Mattress City building (to the north) recently to redevelop that parcel?

Re: Plaza move-ins (ongoing)

This looks like a wonderful development. It would be great if those houses could be given away if someone would pay the cost of moving them to vacant residential lots on the east side. Most of the houses may appear rundown, but they all appear to have decent roofs. They are probably still viable ren...

Re: The Netherland and Monarch on Main

This is fantastic! Love that they're going upward even on The Netherland. It says that the new building would be senior living over a grocery. Based on the site, there's about 19,000 sf for the first floor . For reference, a typical Sprouts size grocery store is ~34k sf; the Whole Foods that's goin...

Re: We need a new airport!!!

The council has adjourned. The basic (first) agreement was defeated. A vote passed to drop Edgemoor completely, but it was sent to committee for further consideration. It doesn't mean Edgemoor is out, but it doesn't look good for them. Council member Lee Barnes passed out the resolution to dump Edge...

Re: KCMO Downtown Streetcar

Kansas City's streetcar, which began service in 2016, is considered a success. Could it work in Omaha?

Re: Plaza move-ins (ongoing)

The Plaza is a popular location for office space. This makes me wonder why that building would ever convert to a senior living/assisted living facility. Why wouldn't it continue to be office space?
