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

Re: We need a new airport!!!

^^^^^ that sounds far from the truth. As said in the council meeting, an FAA ruling was not yet known and wouldn’t be released until later. Also, the Community Benefits don’t add up to hundreds of millions or anything large. No, 28 million total .14 million of that the FAA said over a month ago to ...

Re: We need a new airport!!!

You know its awfully funny that Edgemore knew of the FAAs rejection of half of the city's concessions before this set of renderings came out. The roof, and column free space and indoor fountain may have been scraped due to this. Edgemore knows they are on the hook for these concessions, and they can...

Re: We need a new airport!!!

I will wait and see before I make put in my 2 cents. But, for right now, the renderings are of poor quality. SOM must be working on a very tight budget right now. Both B&M, and Aecoms renderings were light years better than these and they hadn't even been paid yet!

Re: We need a new airport!!!

And I would also add, that the section of DFW with the Grand Hyatt in it (Terminal D), isn't even a circle it's a square and if I'm not mistaken it is the newest addition to the airport. So someone in Dallas felt like that terminal design was preferably to building yet another circle. Just somethin...

Re: We need a new airport!!!

So, I guess the $4 million spent on Landrum and Brown's work was just so the task force could make an educated recommendation to the city. Two years, and $4 million dollars later and nothing has changed. Now the city has to wait two more years so Southwest Airlines can do their own studies to justif...

Re: We need a new airport!!!

Oh and by the way there will be no recommendation from the AAC. Board members said the city, the Kansas City Aviation Department and the airlines that serve the airport already have decided to either build a new single terminal or engage in a massive renovation of the existing three terminals, as ev...

Re: We need a new airport!!!

They did that. The estimate was around 70% of a new building. "Undertake major renovations at two existing terminals that will likely cost in excess of $700 million and won’t solve all the airport’s problems. Or build a new single terminal and solve all the problems –– but be ready to spend $800 mi...

Re: We need a new airport!!!

The opposition made it about money. They think they city won't be spending a fortune if we don't build. Thus I expect the city to show up with a crazy expensive plan for the current terminals at some point, and 75% of it will be necessary to do. I'm afraid once again they will delay their findings ...

Agreed, it's only about 550' from home plate to these seats. There are points inside Kauffman Stadium that are 550' from home plate.

Re: We need a new airport!!!

Corgan Architects put their input in on a renovation that would cost $700 million and would keep the two terminals separate, and would involve no central terminal. The $700 million is only a preliminary estimate. I would love to see what they have in mind. Until I do, I'm still on board with buildin...
