It's clearly delayed. Topping out should have taken 3-4 months total for a building that size.

We were in a drought for most of the summer so rain can't be an excuse.
Update: A lot of progress in the past week.

Re: Hyperloop between KC and STL

I'm onboard for anything that can take me between KC and StL in 30 minutes for less than the cost of driving. I'd go twice a year just to walk around looking at old buildings.

Re: Politics

Keep in mind that most people who are registered Democrats in our country are still establishment Democrats. Don't overestimate the population of progressive Democrats. They tend to congregate in a few coastal states that are already safe Democratic strongholds in the electoral college. What elects ...

Re: Plaza move-ins (ongoing)

Wonder if anyone stated the fact that this area is next to a bunch of restaurants and like 4 blocks from the Plaza so there would really be no need to use a car to get around. Also I think people visiting would more than likely use uber or lyft to get around, so there is no need to get lost and roa...

Re: Dismantling of Great Mall (ongoing)

https://i.imgur.com/W5NSiVm.jpg I can't believe they are still designing retail buildings in projects like this without putting at least two floors of apartments on top of the buildings.

Re: Politics

It's hard to run and win as president if you have lost your most recent political race. Beto will also no longer be a congressman if he loses the race for Senate, since he is vacating the seat to run for the Senate. Sure he could run, but he's be running against several people with a lot more name r...
