Re: The Future of Crown Center

4 new office towers with a combined 2 million sqft of office space, additional retail, and residential buildings are all planned for Crown Center per a Crown Center release. Not sure what exactly the timeline would be on this considering their release from July is the first and only time I have hear...

Re: Phase Three Streetcar Expansion

Any idea how the study got the cc line estimate so wrong? Seems like a big thing to not take into account The Next Rail study used the Main Street Streetcar Price Per Mile cost for all the routes they looked at. By using the CCROW, a pre graded former rail line, the cost is cut down from the ~$30/m...

If they aren't onboard, I'd go to NKC.

Linwood area had strong community support I believe. NKC was studied but there just isn't enough money yet to support anything.

Phase Three Streetcar Expansion

With the Union Station to UMKC Extension through 2 of 4 hoops and the North Shore Extension also in the works, I thought I'd put together a poll on what people think will be next. The Mayor has mentioned an East/West Route as his preferred phase three. The Next Rail study puts a Linwood Route high o...

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

We have light rail. It's running downtown right now. This is an important distinction when we look at what we can do. I like to use Houston because it has similarities and differences to KC The red line has longer trains, have dedicated lanes and mostly wider stop spacing. But the red line downtown...

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

With the areas population expected to grow by some 600K in the next 20 years, increased public support for rail projects, and recent strong support for the airport, is now the time to revisit a legitimate light rail plan. Not a Chadtain Proposal. But an actual starter line. Peer cities like Nashvill...

Re: We need a new airport!!!

I think that the thinking was if they keep limited traffic in both directions, there will be traffic flow issues(Traffic Jams). By keeping just one side open they can force anyone coming the other way to use another route.

Re: We need a new airport!!!

You've shared All Interesting points that were also shared on Urban STL. Remember. 1. New Terminal will be able to handle double the number of flights we currently use. 2. The estimated fees per passenger have been announced. And as far as I know it's lower than STL. 3. $3million isn't a huge invest...

Re: We need a new airport!!!

My biggest concern with the design is that there isn't enough width in the terminal as compared to some of our counterparts. Looking at the Star's view of Indy, Raleigh-Durham, and Ft. Meyer's airports they all had more square footage than the proposed single terminal. I'm not suggesting we have to...

Re: We need a new airport!!!

I have a hard time believing this airport redesign will cost under 1 billion. If you look at past history of recent airports they are all going way over budget. The redesign in SLC has gone over a billion from its original estimate. The brand new airport in Berlin I believe has gone overbudget by l...
