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...

Tent is up for the official groundbreaking ceremony today. The site looks packed with construction equipment for today. Pretty good view of all the excitement from the webcam mentioned earlier.

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...

"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.

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 the most co...

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...

Just saw on the Development Tracker that Cerner has filled for a "Final UR Plan" at the Trails Campus.

A previous plat filled for the properties showed "Non-Residential Square Feet: 11,700,341...

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