Re: Aggressive panhandlers

I'll preface this with panhandling downtown and midtown is really very bearable and rare vs other cities. That being said there are a few regulars that really grind my gears. In particular there is a couple who seem to appear for months and then disappear. He is a tall skinny black guy and she is a...

Re: 13th and Grand tower

I will say that the value of this property may be getting too high to keep as parking though. But that's just speculation from me. I bet the ambassador and UMB would both rent parking from them, and they could build spec or hotel on top. City would probably kick in to keep Grand moving. I'm sure it...

Committee votes to recommend renaming KCI after MLK http://www.kmbc.com/article/committee-votes-to-recommend-renaming-kci-after-mlk/20767150 No. Please No. This is bad for so many different reasons.

The goal is this fall. They did say things could get pushed back a little because of the gate increase.

Re: KCMO Downtown Streetcar

My guess. It was important for people to realize that the streetcar isn't the one starting crashes. It is wreckless drivers. If you take a look at the KC Reddit, basically everyone is strongly in agreement with that statement. Publishing the videos the first time help d created that sentiment(a good...

Re: 13th and Grand tower

Some of the lots on that block now show up under the name TWP Holdings(Still A Copaken Affiliate). Previously, and some still are, the lots were under the ownership of Block 112 LLC. I am 99.99% this is a change, but I could be crazy.

Don't feed the troll. Unless you think you can bait it into doing something banworthy. If it is who I suspect, that shouldn't be difficult. I guess that would solve the problem.

Re: 3rd & Grand to be redeveloped as TOD

Isn't the current vogue to be disproportionately outraged at every real or imagined slight? Or do I spend too much time online, where basically everyone is their worst possible self most of the time? The key is to be disportionately outraged for “slights against” other groups who they themselves do...

I'm not sure why we are debating the troll's post, but the term Oriental market is not racist. Referring to an Asian person as "an Oriental" is offensive, but but referring to goods and products from Asia as Oriental is not. One of the stores in the River Market (Huong Que) has Oriental M...

Maybe, we should shut down the thread about Im2Kull being Sly James. I’d hate to out the mayor. No one outed ST, he outed himself. Told where he worked, what he did and who he worked for.

Re: UMKC Conservatory of Music considers move to downtown

Honest question: does anyone here regularly use BAP? Why would anyone use it? The new furniture is very nice, but there is no shade and nothing to do. I was in in Cincinnati over the weekend and what they've done to Washington Park is amazing. Southwest airlines sponsors a nice shaded porch that se...
