Re: Renovations of apartment buildings along Armour Blvd.

a few years ago, I was present at an intimate meeting of the HP board (and maybe a handful of other engaged neighbors) with City personnel and a group of neighbors on a single block of hyde park who were pitching a fit over MAC tenants parking on the street. literally every homeowner had a private d...

Re: We need a new airport!!!

I just flew KCI over the weekend. My experience was like an informercial in support of a new KCI. I walked in to the packed gate area (SWA) at about 6pm, just as the small snack vendor was closing up shop. I could hear numerous people around me complaining and grumbling over the dearth of food insid...

Re: Amazon searching for second HQ

this morning on NPR, they did a story on all the "quirky" things that cities are doing to get Amazon's attention. like Tucson sent a giant cactus to seattle. multiple mayors did cheesy videos as well. it made me feel a little better that Sly's antics are not any worse (or better) than the ...

Re: Brookside

Bella Nap for life! yep! love getting the same Le Monde pastries at Bella Napoli for half the price as Roasterie (even if sometimes they are clearly a day old). Bella Napoli also has the best nightly specials. $6 pizzas! (But they took our favorite off the menu, but we are the horrible customers wh...

Re: Amazon searching for second HQ

435/blue river is an insult if it's even included in the RFP response package. like the team didn't even read, or consider, what amazon wants. i hope it's a footnote at the end of 11 pages of pitching downtown-area sites. KC's bid has always been a pipe dream, but the city at least needs to put a re...

simply speechless. on what planet does it seem like a good idea to pitch a site to amazon anywhere other than downtown KC? could the city have fucked up the RFP this badly?

Re: Troost developments

I apologize if I have missed or forgotten something, but what is the plan for these corners? Does MAC want to fix up the building on the SW corner like it said it would 5+ years ago? Is the plan for new-construction residential with street-facing retail on the other corners?
