Re: Misc Crossroads News

This is just proving how much City Market is missing the boat by not having a Christkindlmarkt on December weekend evenings. Serve Christmas-themed cocktails in the shelter with garage doors. Do a Christmas light show on the Steamboat Museum building. They'd make a killing.

Re: Five Light

I'm not buying that at all. The tower is mid-block so that corner isn't underneath it. They would have to take out Jos A. Bank as well to reach the elevators.

The mid-block lobby will be two stories and not that small square footage-wise, I don't see the issue.

Re: The Gallerie - 27th & Gillham Apartments and Condos

They must be pretty high-end considering the new townhouses the same developer built at 27th & Campbell still haven't all sold for less than $300k.

Re: KCMO Downtown Streetcar

I'm not sure I really understand the logic here. If a developer comes in and makes a legitimate offer, I don't see how Commerce could think it's a better strategy to sit on the land in the hopes that maybe in 10 years the Royals might select their site for a new stadium if they decide to move and ev...

Re: Apple searching for second HQ--too!

Taking the KC economic border war nationwide!

First, they get insane incentives to locate the 2nd HQ. Then, every time they want to add jobs they'll play each HQ's city and state off of each other to see who will offer more incentives for the new jobs.

Re: The Gallerie - 27th & Gillham Apartments and Condos

27th has been reopened between Grand and Gillham. The road diet looks nice as it goes past one of the Hallmark surface parking lots, and some trees and grass should help even more. It would be nice if they could do something with the huge north facing blank brick wall that one is confronted with as...

Re: KC Metro Transportation Ideas

I oppose building rail transit in all of suburban Kansas City (excluding NKC). Until they are interested in dense land use, it's all the expense, none of the benefits.

Re: West 39th Street Apartments

I've seen more recent plans of the 39th St building and it is much better. One driveway and a larger lobby that opens to the sidewalk. Still could be improved but way better than the original garbage they put out.

Re: OFFICIAL - Corrigan Building

I wouldn't think a 4th or 5th story view from Corrigan looking west would be all that great. Looking NW, sure, but there's probably enough space between the two buildings that that's not covered anyway and if it is, they could keep it shorter on the north portion of the building and build taller on ...
