Re: Fixing p&l traffic backups

town pavilion is double helix. it's kind of a quadruple helix as grand side and walnut side independently helix their way on up there. they 100% should block left turns into the midland garage from northbound traffic. that alone might not do enough though as most of these idiots will just spin aroun...

Re: OFFICIAL - 909 Walnut

yeah, sorry, didn't read it. even if i had read the article i would have trusted my vague memory of my parcel viewer research at the time over whatever the article/the leasing office said. i don't think it's too hard to sell. one was on zillow for 2-3 months about a year ago, i assume it sold but no...

Re: Another 16th & Main hotel

Kinda sucks. I kinda wish that they put would put a Starbucks in the P&L. It's two blocks away? Does that really make that much of a difference? Plus we don't even know the service level of this thing. I'm guessing it'll be on par with a Starbucks kiosk you find in a grocery. Yes it absolutely ...

Re: Two Light - 14th & Grand

Devin was a young lad, I don't remember how old, maybe like 12, who dreamt of becoming an architect. Maybe he is one now, who knows. I actually don't remember what it was that was insufferable about him, exactly, I just have a vague memory of him being pro-urbanity to the point of like wishing to b...

Re: Amenities missing from downtown

that's the old popeyes building, right? gotta try that. guessing the reason it's popping up there is that multiple popeyes locations on the MO side went vacant at the same time so the opportunity was right. can't think of any similarly turnkey opportunities to do the same in crossroads or river mark...

not crossroads and not Q1 of 2018, but houndstooth expanded into the basement in the river market with a denim concept. looks like he's doing well there, which makes me very happy.

Re: KC Metro Transportation Ideas

I oppose building rail transit in all of suburban Kansas City (excluding NKC). Until they are interested in dense land use, it's all the expense, none of the benefits. this seems right to me but i'm a feckless holder of transit opinions that doesn't put much thought into it other than reading this ...
