Re: We need a new airport!!!

So while we bumble around and ultimately will settle for a second rate piece of crap that looks like it belongs in Oklahoma City, Chicago is going to do their new terminal right. Refreshing to see a city that gets it and ultimately is going to prioritize great design and visitor experience. https:/...

Re: Bannister Mall/Cerner

I think that area east of Raytown doesn't have enough infrastructure. Noland Road, E.75th, E. 87th, Westridge/Harrison, Norfleet, Rickey Rd., Phelps Rd., Rhinehart Rd., Military Rd., Brickyard Rd., and Little Blue Road all need to be widened. Several of the main numbered artery streets need to be c...

Re: OFFICIAL - Loews Convention Hotel (formerly Hyatt)

There is nothing wrong with the grass in front of the PAC. That's taking the KC inferiority complex to a whole new level. lol not liking a huge sprawling lawn in front of a downtown performing arts center is an 'inferiority complex?' is that how u attack people that disagree with something so objec...

Re: Bannister Mall/Cerner

That land east of Raytown has been mostly rural since KCMO annexed it. Other than a few dozen homes near Unity Village and Truman Medical Center ,very little has been built and Cerner isn't gong to change that. The few neighborhoods east of Raytown are mostly occupied by KCMO employees, cops and fir...

Re: OFFICIAL - 46 Penn Centre

Loss of the Balcony Building would have been a tragedy and I'm glad it was stopped. However, if a developer comes in with a proposal that satisfies the requirements of the neighbor-vetted Plaza Plan (height limitations, bowl and all that), they should not then be able to be held hostage by Save the...

Re: OFFICIAL - Loews Convention Hotel (formerly Hyatt)

The pedestrian experience and entire south half of this project is literally trash. The hotel or performing arts center? Most arts centers don't have a great pedestrian experience. They are similar to convention centers. I'm sure the southside of the hotel (ballroom) is bad though and that connects...

Re: Bannister Mall/Cerner

One of the biggest office construction projects in the entire Midwest, if not the country and it gets pretty much zero attention here or anywhere else. That alone should say something about just how bad of a design this really is and how this walled off private single use office park will have almos...

https://compasskc.kcmo.org/EnerGov_Prod/SelfService/#/plan/242433e4-6ebf-4cbb-bbb5-3a1febd9a17c This gave a good example of why parking maximums are a good idea. They're adding nearly 2000 spots more than is required based on the space. At the peak of the mall era when this was the major mall for t...

Seems like Three Light might be dead. Any time a project drags out this long, it typically dies.

You're next, church Save the Plaza people need to be run out of town first. Yeah! Then we can just demolish the whole plaza!! Who needs those dumb old Spanish towers anyway. We can build lots of 15 story buildings with giant garages facing the street. No more tile and plaster, I want to see cheap m...

Re: OFFICIAL - Loews Convention Hotel (formerly Hyatt)

You guys are nuts. I love how it faces the south. That view is pretty amazing with Crown Center and Liberty Memorial and the Crossroads district. It really shows hos much larger downtown KC is beyond the Loop. The view from the Arts Center looking NE would give you a nice view of the P&L Tower and a...

Holy shit, they hit a home run with this. That looks incredible. I'm not sure why I like this so much, but it just works with the surrounding structures.

This is a little old, but still a nice video that really shows how this is a nice infill project even though it's only a few stories. The crossroads is really starting to fill in nicely.

^ I knew that opened. But the rest of the site looks like it's not really moving along since they built the road. Maybe it's on track. Just an observation.

Re: Muehlebach Hotel / KC Club Project

So with the larger size, is that rendering still accurate? Would they be adding a couple more floors?
