Re: Bird Scooters Have Landed

You don't have to buy those packs of money I realized. Just add a cc and when you scan to ride you'll be charged your actual amount. How do I get around this? Cause I’ve gotten a message that told me “I don’t have enough credits to start a ride” and I prepaid to get around it. The prepaid method is...

Re: Westport

Seems excessive if not ridiculous on the surface but it's just a few hours window late Fri/Sat night that attracts a raucous leaning party crowd to begin with. Wouldn't mind seeing P&L take more of the party and bridge/tunnel crowd as they did when first opening. Westport needs to focus on turning ...

Re: Plaza move-ins (ongoing)

^Yes, I know the field is not owned by the Plaza. But, it begs the questions: 1. If the demand is strong for residential on the Plaza, why the hell haven’t those lots been developed? 2. Have they not been developed because the demand is not there? If so, the more expense proposition of tearing down...

I think I saw something in a magazine article about a new Home2Suites by Hilton in Liberty so it could be that because I'm sure the building you're referring to is down the hill from the new apartments.

Re: Plaza move-ins (ongoing)

As an 18 year old, I can attest that it does seem like there isn't that much for teenagers to do in Kansas City for fun. Yes, we can go see a movie; go to the gym/community center; play video games at home; go to one of the two remaining malls in the metro. But I can say that often we'll just go out...

Re: Three Light

Briarcliff is within the 15-minute Cerner commute. Has anyone driven from The National in the Northland to downtown during rush hour? How long does it take? My mom used to make this commute to Hospital Hill. It took her about 25-30 minutes depending on traffic. Worst part was always the stoplight a...

Plus a 6 story 170 unit apartment complex at 48th and Belleview that I couldn't find any renderings for. I believe that would be 4711 Belleview: http://i63.tinypic.com/9fy9sw.jpg I was poking around on NSPJ's website and I found these renderings of this project. https://nspjarch.com/wp-content/uplo...

Re: Plaza move-ins (ongoing)

This new luxury senior development is being done by Northpoint Development which recently proposed (and was denied) the redevelopment of the Plaza medical building for this same use. So it is highly likely this new project will be mostly the same except at a different location. If I remember correct...

if KCATA were to "refresh" main MAX while we wait for the streetcar extension in 2022-23, what changes would you make? 5.

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...
