Good point. Like I said, I think once DC chooses one or two, it will get better. Right now, there are way more bikes then people need (and a lot of people use them).

Re: KC Bike share

At first I thought the bikes without stations might be a cool idea. But now, after having seen them in the DC area for several months, I'm not so sure. The bikes are left everywhere, on sidewalks, in yards, in alleys etc. They are also often on the ground fallen over, either knocked over or the wind...

The Netherland and Monarch on Main

Nice project for Midtown KCMO. This will really change the area and will probably spark some new construction nearby. Exact Partners, led by Denver developer Ilan Salzberg and Kansas City architect Caleb Buland, has announced a $30 million-plus project to be anchored by the 10-story Hawthorn Plaza a...

Re: We need a new airport!!!

Good post STLguy1, but I do think it's just a bit biased toward StL. I have always thought that KC sort of "missed the boat" by letting the terminal situation drag out so long. Had MCI built a new terminal 10-15 years ago, I really do think that MCI would be a large focus city for Southwes...

Re: KC Metro Transportation Ideas

you can get about 50% of the metro within 2k of this rail network https://i.imgur.com/0eVediQ.jpg I see this all the time. People always want to run rail on the I-70 corridor in KS to the speedway and they will even completely overlook the I-70 to Blue Springs corridor. The entire county of WyCo ha...

Commuter coach buses

I know the KCATA purchased some commuter coach buses this year and I'm assuming they will be using them on routes like Liberty, Blue Springs and Lee's Summit Express. I have also heard that they use similar buses on the Lawrence to OP route. Has anybody seen them on the streets or have any photos of...

Re: OFFICIAL - 46 Penn Centre

Despite 46 Penn not being all that "iconic", it's great to see all the infill in the plaza area still happening even with Downtown having so much going on. The Plaza is still a very strong and desirable neighborhood. I actually like the 46 Penn office tower. I think it fits in well in the ...

Re: OFFICIAL - 46 Penn Centre

^ sorry kboish, I see you basically said the same thing I did at the same time about parking. It's pretty crazy how much parking buildings need in KC. In this case it's probably not even needed. The garages under both the Lockton tower and 700w47h are HUGE and too big for the buildings and rarely fi...

Re: OFFICIAL - 46 Penn Centre

It amazes me how slowly KC development moves. Scheduled to open in 2020 for a 10-15 story building? Could they put a rush on this...? Yeah, I've been traveling to ATL a lot over the years and they build 30+ story buildings in less time than 10 floors in KC, not sure why KC takes so long. Once somet...

Re: OFFICIAL - 46 Penn Centre

It's great to see a class A spec building started in urban KCMO, although it's still quite smallish. But Ken Block is exactly what is wrong with KC developers. He actually believes this building will be some sort of icon. I don't think it will even be more visible or stand out any more than the Amer...

Re: We need a new airport!!!

Edgemoor? WTF? I may have to contact these guys and see about doing their progress photos since they are literally down the street from me. But I gotta say, I never would have imagined. This may be way over the heads of a firm like Edgemoor and they will not know the community at all.

Re: Bannister Mall/Cerner

This project seems stalled. They have pulled all construction equipment out. The first two buildings have been up for some time now and there are no signs of starting the next phase at all. There is no way they are on their original schedule to build out the campus in 10-12 years (including the firs...

Re: Thought you guys might like this video of downtown

Thanks. KC looks great but not sure what to think about the Quality Hill apartments. I thought they'd make a great addition but it's obvious from the video they are much less dense than the rest of Quality Hill - looks a bit like Arlington Texas or maybe Clayton. Not quite urban, not quite suburban...
