Re: Next Mayor 2019

Yeah theres no arguing the development has changed downtown for the better but as you said the jobs have kinda staggered. Some of us are negative because we've seen this movie before city leadership promises something, we increase taxes, said promise falls flat. Development can only take us so far....

Re: We are getting a new airport!!!

definitely want glass if same price. You pay a premium for glass. Our friends down in Witchita got glass bridges with their new terminal. Glass bridges require a lot more cooling during the summer months. I think this is why you see airports in climates/cultures that require heavy AC go with metal(...

Re: 1822 Main Redevlopment

There are many buildings 6+ floors built around metro often. The properties along streetcar are the most primo real estate in the metro. Sad to see it attracts such small developments. Was expecting more big ticket national developers to be lining up by now. There are some but not as many as I'd ex...

Re: NFL Draft

I'm not a sports fan and I don't understand this whole thing. So, hundreds of thousands of football fans are so familiar with draftees - college players, I assume - that they travel however far and stand in a street so they can cheer when a certain draftee is selected (or whatever) by a pro footbal...

Re: 1822 Main Redevlopment

Re: OFFICIAL - Corrigan Building

Corrigan Station 1 leased for $20-30 per sqft. Station 2 is on LoopNet for $38 per sqft - a pretty healthy increase. You may remember the October CitySceneKC article that noted rents of $34-35 per sqft would spur new build offices. CS2 leasing quickly at its proposed rate would put us solidly above ...

Re: Status and future of the River Market area??

I think the best chance they have to keep the Arabia museum in Kansas City is to talk one of the local casinos into making it an on-site attraction; or in Missouri, is to find some private developer in Branson who would include it in some attraction.
