19th and Oak - Milhaus Mixed Use Development in East Crossroads

I thought this project deserved its own thread. It received approval from CPC yesterday: https://www.bizjournals.com/kansascity/news/2018/07/17/milhaus-gets-zoning-approval-for-65-million-east.html The Kansas City Plan Commission on Tuesday recommended rezoning for what would be the largest redevelo...

Re: Bird Scooters Have Landed

Will streetcar/scooter complement or compete for riders? Probably both. Someone with a starting point and destination that aren't too far apart in the Downtown area may just opt for a scooter instead of the streetcar. Someone looking to go from somewhere like 18th and Vine to the River Market could...

Re: Troost developments

Clemons Real Estate has posted lease/sale signs for the buildings on the west side of Troost between Linwood and E. 31st Street. They may have put up some new signs, but Clemons has been marketing those properties for quite some time now (seemingly off-and-on) - at least 3 years. I don't even see t...

Re: Bird Scooters Have Landed

I think expansion through Midtown/Plaza needs to happen. UMKC seems like it could be a great market. Hopefully the number of rides necessitates the additional scooters, but if not, I would hope they might consider moving some of the "nests" to spread the system a bit. It looks like the one...

Re: Bird Scooters Have Landed

I think the chargers are required to return them to designated "nests", which appear to only be in Downtown at this time.

The article says that they will expand with more scooters in more neighborhoods, depending on demand.

Re: Westport Terrace at Manor Square

I wonder what is going on with Pulse Development? It seems like things have been silent with this project, as well as the Artisan Apartments proposal east of the Plaza. Mirabelle Phase I finished up a little while ago, but phase II doesn't seem to be going forward. There is one little bungalow home ...

Re: Plaza move-ins (ongoing)

Update on the Tudors. Also, it looks like the 4 story apartment building across the street, which has been very stop and go, is starting up work again.

Re: hyde park: believe the hype?

These duplexes are rising up pretty quickly. I will be curious to see the finishes, but I like the way these are shaping up. I think these could be a good model for infill on side streets in Midtown. I think there is a demand for duplexes, which don't seem to be getting built often. These aren't sup...

Re: OPUS at Broadway Blvd and Westport Road

I noticed what I'm pretty sure is a new construction trailer, plus some trucks and cars on site. I think people were working inside the old bank building. Looks like work may finally be beginning in earnest.

Re: The Gallerie - 27th & Gillham Apartments and Condos

Will there always be a no-mans land in between or what design will prevail? Tomorrowland or Main St USA? Milhaus has an option to purchase that land. I don't recall when it expires, but I'm guessing they will exercise it, unless the current phase bombs or they are too busy with their Crossroads and...

Re: 1800 Walnut

I don't understand the question. Build more structured parking and agree to a cheap lease/easement for the owners of a surface lot, if they agree to sell. I think some of the owners of these surface lots wouldn't sell/develop unless they can have replacement for their parking (if the parking lot is ...

Maybe this could be a stipulation for the tax abatement. I wish that more structured parking wasn't the onl...

Re: Phase 2 streetcar to UMKC

There won't be any midtown riff raff to worry about anymore. The streetcar generated gentrification will drive them out. Midtown will no longer be a great supply of affordable housing. The affordable housing crisis in this city is going to come to a head here. I imagine it will be many years before...

Re: Renovations of apartment buildings along Armour Blvd.

That depends on if they are going to continue with new construction, or look for more historic build...

Re: Renovations of apartment buildings along Armour Blvd.

The CPC hearing for this project is happening this morning. I noticed a few changes in the staff reports. It looks like they reduced their recommended parking ratio for Armour and Troost to .5 (Armour and Cherry is still .7). MAC has increased the ratio to .5, so that is encouraging, if CPC follows ...
