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.

There are 3 new renderings as of yesterday.

I see the art deco that the architect was talking about.

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...

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 ...
