Re: North Plaza Hotel- 46th and Broadway

The neighbors with views had years before to form a corporation, buy the air rights and restrict height. They didn't. The City needs to ignore this "right-to-their-view" crowd in the approval process. I'm assuming some who oppose it are Parkway Tower people. No one stopped their 13-story tower when ...

Scooterj, do you have any additional photos before demolition of the Main Street Morgue building, and Nightmares, next door in that strip of buildings that included a formal attire store?

Re: Status and future of the River Market area??

I made the same argument at the time. The reason was the need for big underground garages on the north blocks. The President Hotel wasn't owned by the City's Land Clearance for Redevelopment Authority. Ron Jury was already renovating the hotel by the time Cordish started demolitions, and the City ha...

Re: Status and future of the River Market area??

Can anyone think of a place where this painted sign could be placed? I'd like to figure out a method to lobby for its' recreation somewhere downtown where it wouldn't end up being obstructed by a future building. Why was the River Market once referred to as River Quay? We answer your KCQ. https://ti...

Re: Ambassador Hotel (1111 Grand)

I kinda of wish the orange and yellow colors were part of the design. It would add some color and contrast to the block.
