Agree! Wish it was across the street though ( Baltimore) , think the view from there would be awesome. Maybe even P&L.

Re: 18th and Vine

wonder what inspirational words the late GREAT John "Buck" O'Neil would have for us after this tragedy. I don't know but, I imagine something like this: Good will always conquer evil, and, maybe this evil can be made good again too..........................Uh huh ! He always inspires me!

Re: UMKC Conservatory of Music considers move to downtown

On Kevin Coliisons site someone asked the question why 17 & Broadway was not available. He said it was not clear but, he would report on it as soon as he finds out.

Re: UMKC Conservatory of Music considers move to downtown

I was very much under the impression that a downtown campus was part of the impetus for the streetcar running to UMKC. BAP certainly is not my pick of sites but, it beats the hell out of 63rd street.

Re: OFFICIAL: Port Authority Riverfront Project

Omaha has built several nice 12 to 15 story appt. towers on their riverfront. Think we should demand at least a 7 story minimum the rest of the way here.

Yes, thats the lot I was asking about. The design Safdie had for the ballet was very cool as I remember, resembled the PAC.

I believe it was a Republican in the Northland who sponsored the bill but, cannot recall his name.

Re: 13th and Grand tower

Not to be a hater but I think it's so funny that a 10-15 story building is considered a tower. KC press calls everything a tower. Even 4-7 stories. 6 story office tower proposed for Lenexa or Plaza. It always cracks me up. 10-15 doesn't bother me too much though. This project is annoying though. It...

550' hotel/office/apartment tower rumored to be in the works for downtown STL. 50 story tower rumored for riverfront STL. Wish Cordish did something like this for 4,5,6 Light.

Re: Phase 2 streetcar to UMKC

The other day I ran into a group of about 7 people at Zoo Bar who had been in KC for a couple of days for training and had been all over downtown enjoying the nightlife, but wanted to stick with dive bars. They'd heard about Westport, and in particular Buzzard Beach, and asked if it was in walking ...
