Chicken/egg.

Pedestrains were not used to yielding the Public ROW to cars yet they generally figured it out pretty quickly once they got run over

Re: OFFICIAL - Loews Convention Hotel (formerly Hyatt)

the American Royal brought cowboy culture here. It’s definitely a more artificial than organic identity but a part of our identity nonetheless. Just embrace it Sort of. The FFA is what held the American Royal together for so many years. As soon as KC lost the FAA convention, attendance at the AR dr...

Re: OFFICIAL - Loews Convention Hotel (formerly Hyatt)

Honestly and this may sound extremely cheesy, but I think a large Ferris wheel somewhere downtown would be a good family attraction. Washington Square Park would be great location for a large observation wheel. That's the main reason I brought up gondolas in the other thread. It's a silly gimmick, ...

Re: OFFICIAL - Loews Convention Hotel (formerly Hyatt)

A lot of people that come into Kansas City are country types, whether you all want to admit it of not. They want to see stuff like that. Kansas City isn't a cosmopolitan city that attracts high end tourists. I have to say that this is something I sort of agree with you on. Alot of tourists in KC co...

Re: OFFICIAL - Loews Convention Hotel (formerly Hyatt)

I like the idea of a Bass pro Shop downtown. Would make a good addition for visitors. Even though I have a feeling you are some sort of troll just posting stuff like this to get a reaction. All you do is post stuff that you know would get under the skin of downtown dwellers. But, I don't see how a ...

Re: Phase Three Streetcar Expansion

The I-29 bridge on N. Oak isn't high enough. Need 16 feet clearance and it's not. Getting the train past Vivion Rd will be the first barrier going north let alone traveling all the way to the airport Given NKC passed a TDD in 2008 and is moving forward with Burlington corridor biking improvements w...

Re: Urbanism and Pros and Cons of Gentrification

Hey! Not sure if this is the right place to post but I'm putting together a presentation about how KC has overbuilt low-density areas leading to massive detrimental long-term effects. I am currently struggling to find examples and data about the differences between dense and low density neighborhood...

Re: OFFICIAL - Loews Convention Hotel (formerly Hyatt)

Lots of progress on the site today....Concrete foundation going in on the south side of the project and two new Bay Cranes have popped up too. This thing should be vertical in a few months if not sooner. No way they start doing any kind of steel work in a few months. They have a solid 4-5 months le...

Re: Phase Three Streetcar Expansion

Couple Updates: I heard at a meeting today that an LR line from downtown KCMO to far down 71 highway (Harrisonville was mentioned) would only cost roughly $700m. Keep in mind that a single highway interchange costs roughly $500million. The ROW already exists and is gov. Owned so The only costs woul...

that makes a lot of sense. I personally would rather have public transit over a Google AI Highway.

Re: KC area Transit master plan LIGHT RAIL OR BUST!

I heard today that the Chamber of Commerce is looking at an "AI Superhighway" as part of their transit initiative. Anyone else here something about this?

Re: Phase Three Streetcar Expansion

71 Highway is a high traffic route with a preexisting transit ROW(the center median is built to handle BRT or Rail). TOD is still possible even though it is median running.

Re: Phase 2 streetcar to UMKC

Also on NPR, Gerend noted that lanes, stops, and fares are all up in the air at this point. He also noted that 39th street is the highest east-west bus route in the city. Hopefully, a route from the east side to KU Med on 39th is in our future. I don't like hearing that fares are up in the air. KC ...

Re: Phase 2 streetcar to UMKC

If dedicated lanes down main are used, is it possible to just lay down some good old gravel and wood or concrete ties instead of poured concrete? I assume that gravel and ties will be used within the CCROW way. This would also be super cool https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/8/8d/CAF_Urb...

Re: Two Light - 14th & Grand

I note that neither you nor anyone else on the board complains that Cordish will take some 10-15 years to build out all of its development sites with premium high-rises. If the goal were to get rid of development sites as quickly as possible then clearly it would have been better for them to have b...
