Re: Bannister Mall/Cerner

Not sure if I'm posting this image correctly, but for reference, buildings 3 and 4 are the two buildings to the right of the two recently constructed buildings in the middle of the campus. https://lh4.googleusercontent.com/q9XY-h13exoxwGVFF5dSuLi2Gt6ESBXGx3iswfTpc8dMszuJ4KQMnNbt76UM8TZCe0kjtA99pP6lr...

Re: Bannister Mall/Cerner

Heard this week from members of JE Dunn that "phase two" (buildings 3 and 4) will break ground in spring, sometime around March.

Re: Uptown Shoppes

"The general plan is to do a four-story apartment complex on top (of the 85,000-square-foot shopping center) and possibly a hotel on a pad site," said Bill Fleming, general counsel for the architecture firm TreanorHL and Compton's partner in the Uptown Shoppes deal. This statement makes m...

if KCATA were to "refresh" main MAX while we wait for the streetcar extension in 2022-23, what changes would you make? 5. Remind the bus drivers that people get on the bus dressed for the weather, so maybe running the heater a 95 degrees anytime the outdoor temperature is below 75 isn’t t...

There is. They mentioned this idea a lot at the meeting last night. SOM is calling to build the "smartest" airport in North America.

Re: Bike Lanes

I’ve yet to see a single bike utilize the bike lanes downtown around the Power and Light area. I’ve seen more skateboard nerds than anything. Probably because of a lack of bike infrastructure surrounding it. The people who want to ride in a comfortable/safe environment are likely not biking along j...

Re: Bannister Mall/Cerner

Curious, 11M-12M sqft would be unprecedented even on a national scale. In comparison, Hudson Yards project in NYC is 6M sqft office and considered massive, though I think long term a 20M mixed use project and not a single company. Sounds fishy but at the rate Cerner is going, they could be thinking...

Re: Bannister Mall/Cerner

I just voted for the first time with a big yes!

The people who were working the election tables were surprised at how ...

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...
