Re: We are getting a new airport!!!

They're putting skylights in as I recall. According to the renderings at this time, they are. Too bad the garage has to be a whole story taller than the terminal though. I also think they should of left a little more room between the two so there is room to put something there in the future like a ...

Re: We are getting a new airport!!!

to me it looks like it's going to be a pretty standard airport terminal. Not sure how that hulking garage nearby will play out for the natural lighting inside the ticket lobby. They're putting skylights in as I recall. According to the renderings at this time, they are. Too bad the garage has to be...

Re: We are getting a new airport!!!

I was looking back in the archives and it's been a over a year since the last batch of renderings were released (Aug 16th, 2018). KCDowntown Yeah, we've seen little activity on that front. I was hoping to see a good quality walk through video rendering. The renderings we've seen so far give very li...

Re: We are getting a new airport!!!

Better mass transit, streets with curbs and storm drains along with more sidewalks, and bike lanes.

And those are the same people who think that sidewalks and bicycle lanes are a complete waste of time and money.

Re: We are getting a new airport!!!

I agree with most of the above. I just hope people remember the political leadership that led us here. No one campaigned for a beautiful airport. They were scared to even mention it with a vote, and even after the vote passed overwhelmingly, they're still scared. We're waisting money on financing b...

Re: We need a new airport!!!

So, hypothetically what if the independent consultants come back with a lower cost? What then? This is the second time an outside consultant has done this on this project.

Re: We need a new airport!!!

Nothing is adding up though. The EA was supposed to be done in early October. It was "critical" to get the operating agreement signed in November.....this is either inexperience / ignorance from our city leaders (and developers) so they didn't now how long this stuff really takes...or there are jus...

Re: We need a new airport!!!

The Use and Lease agreement is negotiated between the airlines and the city. Tomorrow's meeting is a public comment meeting. The article notes that the airlines plan on providing a statement. I don't remember SWA having an announcement that they would specifically be attending the meeting. So, Edge...

Re: We need a new airport!!!

Any frequent flyers think this new terminal seems kind of small? It just looks oddly small to me. Maybe it doesn't need to be any bigger, but for a major mid sized airport, it just looks small for a modern single terminal. And not having a couple of covered ped bridges from the garage to the termin...

I see nothing "art deco."
Ok ,so you don't see any of the streamline moderne which is a later form of art deco in the design of the garage? And yes the architect said he liked the art deco architecture in kc and was going to use elements of it in the design of the airport.

Re: We need a new airport!!!

Looks as if the sky walks over the road have been eliminated from the design as well. I don't agree with that. I'm not really into crossing a four lane freeway.

The city found out July 19th that a significant part of the community benefits were rejected. The council was only notified last week.
Thanks for the clarification. :D
