Re: Urbanism and Pros and Cons of Gentrification

That is, word for word and idea for idea how I feel. Which is why it’s irritating there’s a forum being put on to rally people against a fake evil. It’s so clearly being done for personal political purposes and I imagine to help the realtor who is helping moderate the discussion. Everything about th...

Urbanism and Pros and Cons of Gentrification

Good to hear this still has traction. This will be big for downtown and KC as a whole.

Re: 909 Wyandotte

I don’t know, I think it’s exciting. I wish every empty lot in the north loop and east village had a preliminary rendering for it that investors could easily plug their money into.

A quick population hypothetical for data fiends

I have a quick hypothetical for RAGers with quick access to the relevant data: if Kansas City retained its 40s/50s urban core population AND continued to annex the land up to the square mileage it has now what would the 2017 population be (approximately)? 700,000? 800,000?

Hey, it's 2017 and we have two companies providing tourist-oriented tours of KC. Anyway, I found a vaguely appropriate threat to post this Pitch article, wherein David Hudnall uses going on a double-decker tour as a framing device to point out that he *really* doesn't like the direction that downto...
