Re: Old KCPS HQ - 12th & McGee

Could this block be a home for Waddell & Reed? Word is there's nothing to the 1034 Main discussion, which got me thinking: 12th and Mcgee would all but guarantee views of/from the south given Sprint Center's existence. Seems like a prime spot for a large office building relatively close to streetca...

Re: Old KCPS HQ - 12th & McGee

This sucks. Nothing should be torn down in KC. Especially before solid plans are in place to build something. That will leave a gaping hole in that part of downtown especially since it's next to that terrible parking lot at 12th and Grand. Maybe it will get developed quickly, but it seems like devel...

Re: Companies moving downtown

Is a 2021 opening even possible at this point? 1034 Main would be the fastest new-build candidate of the size needed. No building demolition. No foundation excavation. Plans likely ready-to-go. Parking already planned in design. Next to streetcar line. The only thing I don't know about is if there ...

Re: Attention regional businesses

No way. 1034 Main might go up? Would love to also see something similar in scale go up east of Grand, especially on that site north of the Sprint Center. That spot should be reserved for a major office tower too. But 1034 will really add some serious density to the core of downtown.

Re: GO ROYALS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Keep it away from the north loop, please Yeah, I can't believe anybody would want to put the stadium in the North Loop area. That would ruin what will probably become a very hot neighborhood over the next decade connecting downtown to the river market. People need to go visit any urban ballpark and...

Re: OFFICIAL - Loews Convention Hotel (formerly Hyatt)

This has turned out much better than I thought it would. I think I even like the shorter tower and massing of it better now. It fits the area better. A 40 story building there would have dwarfed everything in the area and been out of scale and it would probably take up the same footprint with all th...

Re: New Broadway Bridge

There is no connection to the interstate now and it snot s good situation. Why not get that traffic out of the intersection and get people wanting to go around downtown getting around asap? That would be fine as long a the main bridge is lined up with broadway. The last thing downtown KC needs is m...

The new stadium in St Louis will be nice, but the stadium in KC is just in a terrible terrible terrible location.

If that was directed at me because I live in the DC area, you failed. First off, I'm not even all that fond of DC's new construction. Most of it is bland as hell. However, you almost never see pedestals in DC or above ground parking structures at all. So I really don't understand your point other t...

Re: Attention regional businesses

When I said KC leads with suburban development in Midwest that even includes Chicago. Chicago has had ZERO office space under construction in the burbs for the last year according to Colliers, it's all in the city. https://www2.colliers.com/-/media/Files/UnitedStates/Markets/Chicago/Research/2019Q2...

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

If the stadium were placed in east village, which way would it face? Don't most stadiums look toward the northeast? I mean, that would be a pretty bad view unless they built up the east loop. Not that the view should be a huge priority just curious. Would certainly have plenty of room to build up th...

You are pretty much describing the KCATA property along 18th street (Which is what was highlighted in the previous posts). Its not actually at 18th and Vine, but on the edge. Its also not actually in the Xroads, but just on the edge. It is a dead spot between two districts next to a highway and is ...

Interesting thoughts. 169 backs up now with a lot of traffic wanting to go around downtown so why not make that connection happen without stop lights and still provide easy downtown access? The only plan that will allow for removal of the north loop.id making that connection. Much better idea than ...

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

I was a big advocate for a downtown stadium before renovations and when Downtown KC was a big mess. Now, I would actually probably pass on it unless they put it in the right place. The locations people keep coming up with are terrible. By far, the best location for stadium would have been in the sou...
