Re: Troost developments

Re: OFFICIAL - Reverb (1800 Walnut)

The "jagged" panels definitely appear to be gone. I'm curious about the color. Looks gray in the first image (but everything appears de-saturated) and more of a dark turquoise in the second. http://i63.tinypic.com/fwj0nd.jpg http://i63.tinypic.com/1z36vdj.jpg Older rendering for comparison: https://...

Re: KC metro gaining as a major distribution hub

It looks like CenterPoint could be getting 3 new tenants creating a total of 732 new jobs.

Re: KCMO Downtown Streetcar

For comparison, the Cincinnati Streetcar did 36,333 in April. YTD, Cinci's total is 118,884 (991 per day) vs 622,310 for KC. Milwaukee had a glitch that caused them to lose ridership data for February and half of March. In January, they had 49,501 - 1,597 per day OKC had 102,500 through March - 1,13...

Re: Kansas, Missouri battle over companies

Kansas City is one of three finalists to land the relocation of two USDA research agencies (the other two are Indiana and The Research Triangle). "The congressional delegations from Kansas and Missouri went in on it together." So I'm guessing the two agencies might be split on state lines. 253 Econo...

Re: Troost developments

Also, there is kind of an odd little project at 3801 Troost seeking variances to the Troost overlay. It is the conversion of a car wash into offices (appears it will be a chiropractor). The building has already had all the bays sealed up. Definitely an improvement over the trash-filled car wash, but...

Re: Troost developments

It looks like UCB has a tenant lined up for the Firehouse on Troost. I haven't heard who it is, but the change of zoning request has the potential to be a restaurant. An application has been submitted for a special use permit for a tavern or nightclub. I thought I saw something somewhere that made ...

Re: KCAI Liberal Arts Center

The building looks fine. I'm still sad about the home that was torn down on that lot. I remember a Fank Lloyd Wright quote being on the house: "Buildings, too, are children of Earth and Sun". I seem to recall that being carved in the stonework on the house, but maybe I'm not remembering correctly an...

Re: West Plaza

It is supposed to be a restaurant/bar and coffee shop, tentatively called Eat and Drink on 44. It keeps getting delayed. I think it was originally supposed to open late last summer. Here is the most recent press I have seen, saying it would open in February. Overland Park-based restaurant and retail...

On another note what's going on with the midtown crossing project on Bellview?
Some tweaks were made and the final plan was recently submitted. I am not sure where that puts them in the timeline/approval process.

The other parcel on the corner was at least kept mowed, but still a waste of space. Which parcel are you referring to? Both of these parcels were junky auto businesses. If you're referring to the lot that used to have the domed tower remnant on it (SW corner of Troost and Brush Creek Blvd), that is...

Almost anything would be better than what is there now. I'm interested how this fits into the site, as it backs up to single family homes. The fact that this project would be replacing two of the ugliest lots on Troost makes it all the more exciting. Here is the site plan with landscaping: http://i...

Re: Broadway

Looks like an updated rendering.

I know the store names in these renderings are just place holders, but I think it is funny how it went from Subway, Great Clips, and Starbucks to Fable (a closed Crossroads boutique), Revolve KC, and Kaldi's.
