Re: Three Light

Just funny cause you don't know who you're talking to, like the founder of this board and professional advocate of downtown is an empty nester who moved in last year. I welcome the comedy and your posts. The board has been quiet for the last year or so. So, I appreciate the discussion on a very imp...

To me it looks like they are widening the street with some land that currently makes up surface parking in the lower level of the site.

Re: OFFICIAL - Hyatt Regency Convention Hotel

Could this affect the design? The Loews in chicago is pretty nicely designed as are Loews in general.

Construction would require eminent domain. I also read that the highway would include a light rail system. Do...

Re: We need a new airport!!!

Number one international destination not served by KC is London. That would be fantastic, but I doubt it's ever going to happen unless there are big handouts involved—not just because KC's market is too small, but because you're going to fly almost within spitting distance of O'Hare on the direct r...

Re: We need a new airport!!!

Is the city required to put the airport to a vote, or is it just a promise? If not, is the city allowed to sell land to a developer(Burns and Mac) and allow them to build a terminal without a vote?

Re: Current Hannibal Bridge

Maybe a new Hannibal and Broadway bridges would change the landscape enough to allow for a train station in the north loop. Dave said that the geometries wouldn't align under the current set up, but maybe with a new bridge/ new rail connection that would change.

Re: KC to STL Hyperloop

If Hyperloop is willing to take bulk of risk, MODOT could take advantage of it with this potential scenario... One of the I-70 improvement options is to build a separate toll highway North of current I70. MODOT establishes right-of-ways (ROW) for the Hyperloop project knowing it very well may fail....

Re: New Broadway Bridge

When downtown population doubles as well as workforce doubles, the N Loop may be more needed than today. But should cap it, maybe dig deeper underground. Is possible better metro transit with commuter rail could reduce the need but it wouldn't hurt to keep N Loop and go further underground as a lon...
