Re: Misc Crossroads News

Just wanted to say it is totally so sad what has happened to the East Crossroads since the streetcar was built. Everything you think is happening is a lie. There is only the appearance that momentum in the area has actually increased since the streetcar was completed. In reality, things are dire an...

Re: Kansas, Missouri battle over companies

50th? I never believed Brownback's governing style and tax philosophy would lead to good things, but 50th is literally the worst you can do. Turns out Ayn Rand was an idiot.

Re: KC to STL Hyperloop

I mean it takes 45 minutes to fly to stl and an hour to Chicago. The only way this changes things is if it's just as fast and cheaper. And lacks the airport security theater I guess. Why can't we just invest in our current rail system? I think hyperloop, or even fast rail, could begin competing wit...

Re: Do you have or plan to get Google Fiber?

Google Fiber is not offering TV service in new markets it's entering - Louisville and San Antonio. They are hinting to use OTT streaming services instead like YouTubeTV, Sling, Hulu etc. GF says they'll continue to offer TV in existing markets but would bet they get rid of it next year (that is if ...

Re: Would you like to see the Royals move to a downtown stadium?

I don't get the need for the stadium to be within the downtown loop. I would think you would reserve parcels within the loop for 5-to-7 days-a-week uses year-round instead of a few days each month for just a few months out of the year. A stadium seems to be a downtown-adjacent thing. Good point, bu...

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

There seems to be no better endorsement of placing a business along the streetcar than an owner of another business along the line wanting to double down.

Re: Amazon searching for second HQ

I don't think the reason for their airport requirements has to do with executive flights. It is more likely related to all of the salespeople, marketing, technical solutions providers, etc., who are not high up enough to command a private jet. They will need varied flights to many international dest...

If the Tampa/Dolphins game has to move wonder if KC would be the likely spot to host the game. They have until today to move it up in the week. Otherwise Alternative spots are going to be picked. KC seems like the perfect spot to host this game. Don't they also have the same bye week? It seems it w...

Re: Phase 2 streetcar to UMKC

So, if they win (not saying it is likely), wouldn't it have to also effectively eliminate all TDDs in the state and create total chaos (and force tax dollars from people who never voted in a TDD to support future TDD obligations)?

Re: Westside happenings

So, as was foretold in the before times, very few people at the new Switzer Lofts payed the stupid fees for uncovered, across-the-street parking lot access, and neighbors are complaining about the spillover on Nextdoor. It is pretty funny to see like three cars parked in their gated parking area bec...

“What caught me eye in Kansas City is the same thing we see in Denver, just seven years behind,” Slawson said. *20 years behind Maybe 20 years behind in certain metrics, but I think 20 years is generous when comparing our transportation system. I personally do not see KC having, in 20 years, integr...

Re: P&L District: 13th & Walnut Site Proposal

While I like Q39 much more than Joe's KC (only kansans would put cheese on BBQ). It would be a plus for downtown to have such a famously hyped (but barely above average) BBQ joint. But Food TV and other media will still focus on the hick gas station location for the kitsch. That is crazy talk. I'm ...

I think they deliberately don't let the place get too packed. We had reservations, and when I confirmed them, I noticed that ther...

All it takes is like 3 flights leaving around the same time, and you get multiple hundreds of people arriving at the same Southwest gate in a one hour span.
