Re: Mirabelle I & II (45th, Broadway, Wornall block)

The last remaining home of the Mirabelle II site had been demoed and site work is happening.

Pardon the pun, but it appears that Pulse Development does still have a heartbeat. I wonder if we will hear any news about their other development proposals.

Re: Plaza move-ins (ongoing)

On the topic of undeveloped green fields, construction fencing and a trailer just went up on a portion of the old Colonial Court Apartments site. This is right across the street from the 46 Summit development, so I'm guess this will just be a staging site for that project. There had been a sign up o...

Re: Troost developments

I don't know of any Troost development tracker. Your best resource might be reading through this thread. I don't know of much going on around 45th and Troost. The whole stretch of Troost between South Hyde Park and Manheim Park has had surprisingly few positive developments compared to other stretch...

Re: OFFICIAL - City Club Apartments (former Midwest Hotel)

I noticed two riders on the sign that said something along the lines of "restaurant tenant pending" and "market tenant pending". (you can see the riders on the second photo above, but can't make out the text).

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

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 ones around 1...

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: 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...

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.
