Re: Flooding on the Missouri

The river appears to be rising again. Parkville is back up near 35ft.

All 4 airport related ordinances passed legislative committee today. That includes the 1st tranche of bonds formerly known as "short term financing."

Re: OFFICIAL - City Club Apartments (former Midwest Hotel)

A few concrete columns are peaking up above ground level on the north side. This project is going to be absolutely massive. Agreed - this project is going to be a game changer. I’m super pumped for the retail on top of the 100s of new unites/residents that will call DTKC home. It’s going to connect...

Re: OFFICIAL - City Club Apartments (former Midwest Hotel)

In ancient times(pre-1940), adjacent buildings were built to touch. Why is it that these new infill projects are not built to the same standard. Ex. (Courtyard Marriot, City Club, etc)

Jolie has really been making a strong pro-transit position this week. Tonight she said every Kansas Cityian should be able to live car free.

Re: 3rd & Grand to be redeveloped as TOD

Maybe I am misunderstanding this project - we've seen several rounds of renderings at this point and know Briarcliff is paying an ongoing fee for the development rights. But is this happening? When? Is the project still "proposed" until a tenant(s) comes along? This will fill a massive hole on the ...

Re: Next Mayor 2019

Sure it is. But you have to think about not necessarily being seamless with downtown. Using places like the Riverfront for a transfer point. I don’t think we will ever be able to afford a metro aka subway. Maybe there is some confusion due to my using the word metro? A metro is any city-centered (u...

I don't know what this plan is about, but if this is a housing plan, why WOULD businesses like the Sunfresh center, PVCC and Home Depot/Costco be included?

Re: KCI Flight Schedule Adjustments

There we go. Passengers that are booked on an Icelandair flight that was scheduled on a 737 MAX 8 do not need to contact Icelandair in order to be rebooked on a flight. We will be changing the aircraft on affected routes to either a 757 or 767 aircraft. https://www.icelandair.com/blog/statement-boe...

Re: Next Mayor 2019

Great to see such strong support for rail, bus, and streetcar at tonight’s debate. I am especially interested in Jolie’s desire for rapid rail transit. While true rapid rail (metro) isn’t possible, it’s good to see the front runner strongly support regional rail and bus. On another note.... I still ...

Re: KCI Flight Schedule Adjustments

Any word on what happens to the KEF route if this MAX8 things drags out. I assume it will be fixed by then, but just something I was thinking about. I assume they already have their 757s assigned somewhere else so they would have big decisions on what to keep/cut. I haven’t followed the greater Ice...

Re: Phase 2 streetcar to UMKC

Are there plans to add switchbacks in Midtown? It would allow circulation of streetcars if a portion of mainstreet were to get blocked.
