Re: Three Light

KC council needs to push for a better design than a copy/paste of 2 Light. St. Louis's first Cordish tower is 30 stories or so and looks much better. Plus another developer is proposing a 33 story apartment tower by the ballpark. I think that 3-4 light may not be receiving near as many incentives t...

Re: Three Light

Is the timeline still to build 4 once 3 is close to being done? I would think that all the demand would lead to bigger buildings and faster start times.

Re: Three Light

So we are looking at a summer 2018 announcement? Sounds like they are behind schedule ("construction on three light will start before two light is finished")

Re: On-going downtown development projects

Des Moines has a 33 Story Tower Proposed. STl has multiple 20-35 Story Towers going up. Yet we can't get buildings like this redeveloped in a timely manner.

Re: KC transit-oriented development push (TOD)

Big things are expected to spring from a 2-acre site at the northwest corner of 12th and Charlotte streets on the east side of the downtown freeway loop. The Kansas City Area Transportation Authority acquired the site, currently a surface parking lot, last month from Barber & Sons Co. and plans...

Re: We need a new airport!!!

https://i.imgur.com/n0gJfpA.jpg Would be interesting to see where it would go. I was told that because of where the Control Tower is, we will probably have to build a second terminal on top of where B is today if we ever need to expand past the 42 gates. So the B and C areas probably can't hold the...

Re: We need a new airport!!!

Did anyone bring up anything practical like places for people to shower and change clothes when they are stuck in the airport because of storms, or delays? Perhaps those small sleeping pods like they have in Japan that you can rent by the hour. I always feel sorry for people stuck overnight at KCI ...

Re: We need a new airport!!!

Two thoughts on light rail. 1. How do you fund it? If it's a billion dollars to build from DT to KCI could we tack another buck onto ticketing? We would still be lower than most major airports. I think it would put us around $9. Of course, it would serve many communities along the way so they could...

Re: We need a new airport!!!

I can't imagine going to a design meeting of a billion dollar facility and my input is electrical outlets. So is Kansas City though I do hope transportation to/from and around the new terminal is discussed in detail: dedicated ride share in front of terminal, prominent electric charging stations bu...

They are currently planning on 2 clubs. USO and ..... None of the legacy carriers has a large enough presence here to bother with operating a lounge of their own, so I'd bet on it being "The Club at MCI" (Priority Pass, etc.), with an outside chance of it being an Amex Centurion lounge in...
