Re: Union Station

I walked through last week. It looks nice. I just wish they found a way to open up the DT skyline to the north part of US. The view would be great and you could have a window for watching trains. Kids would love it. Absolutely true!!! My Dad worked below on the station platforms for 30 years. 3;00 ...

Re: OFFICIAL - Loews Convention Hotel (formerly Hyatt)

^Inappropriately smug for a tragedy. Maybe an explanation will suffice. I am simply praying for the one lost as well as their family. The verse from Psalms brings me strength during hard times. Hardly inappropriate or smug. What would be inappropriate would be to argue a horrible, tragic death. I w...

Re: On-going downtown development projects

I want tall buildings. All the infill is nice, but the skyline last changed when they built the skylons Uh, you don’t count the Lights or Kauffman Center or Loews as part of the skyline? I consider a real skyline changer a 30 plus business tower. I say business tower because of the difference betwe...

Re: OFFICIAL - Strata (H&R Block's 2nd Tower)

There is far more to be said about building a signature 50+ floor tower downtown then just saying "but it will only fill one block." Signature towers put a downtown on the forefront to the local business community with a strong statement. They spur much more peripheral development than smaller proj...

Re: Liberty Memorial Musuem and Penn Valley Park

Don't know if you have seen this? I have mixed emotions. https://www.worldwar1centennial.org/honor/national-wwi-memorial.html I don't. There is more in D.C. than can be visited in 2 months. The Smithsonian has 98% of their inventory in storage. Think the very end of the first Indiana Jones movie. T...

Re: OFFICIAL - Loews Convention Hotel (formerly Hyatt)

One massive building. Hard to get the feel of how massive it is till you stand near it. This will definately change our skyline in an eye catching way. So glad we finally got this off the drawing board!!!

Re: 1800 Walnut

Is there a date for the city council to act, or any other movement on this project yet? Love to have 10--15 more of these in the Crossroads/Eastside neighborhoods, half of which were office/office-retail like Corrigan Station.

Re: Old KCPS HQ - 12th & McGee

I try to allow for all kinds of tastes, but the call to tear this building down because of its appearance, is outrageous. No degree of difference from prior generations who destroyed 95% of our architectural treasure....because they were 'out of fashion' or 'too expensive to renovate'. The library/...

Re: Old KCPS HQ - 12th & McGee

If this building could be made to look anything like this, it would be awesome! Top skin on this building is hideous. Love the bottom bot looks like it could use a serious cleaning. I was actually think more that this cladding would be for a potential addition to the south. I'm assuming, if the bui...

Conversely, this feels like a building where adding new wings in glass could work really well.

Re: OFFICIAL - Loews Convention Hotel (formerly Hyatt)

Still wish this were one 40 story tower rather than two 20 story towers in an L shape. It will still be nice though. I just hope it does what it's supposed to do. It seems like other similar sized cities are still building more hotel rooms than KC near their convention centers. Indy just announced ...
