Re: Prospect MAX

That's a lot of construction for a bus stop. Something substantial needs to go on that block and soon.

Re: Ambassador Hotel (1111 Grand)

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.

Re: OFFICIAL - Corrigan Building

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.

Re: One North Development

^ 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?

Re: OFFICIAL - Loews Convention Hotel (formerly Hyatt)

I've only been in the lobby of Crowne Plaza, seemed pretty nice and clean. The rooms I can't speak for. I thought they did a big renovation when they painted the exterior and garage? Maybe just lobby and exterior? From the reviews, it sounds like they updating rooms now. We might have gotten some o...

Re: OFFICIAL - Loews Convention Hotel (formerly Hyatt)

It looks like they are doing some remodeling, but that building needs at least a 50 million dollar investment to bring up to par as a 3.5-4 star hotel. It might serve a market though. It's a large hotel and affordable if you purchase on third party sites. Families coming to the city for conventions...

Re: OFFICIAL - Loews Convention Hotel (formerly Hyatt)

Have we seen any hotel to apartment conversions DT yet? That hotel definitely needs totally redone and apartments might be a better money maker. Decent location, plenty of parking and could bring a good amount of affordable units to the area. It looks like they are doing some remodeling, but that b...

Re: OFFICIAL - Loews Convention Hotel (formerly Hyatt)

That hotel district south of 670 is quite impressive. It's really giving downtown some density. We were in KC a few days ago and needed two rooms so I used price line to try to save some money. Ended up at the Crown Plaza. That is one tired hotel. Good lord. It's like a hi rise super 8 only probably...

Re: Five Light

If they ever build four light, it won't matter anyway, It will be behind the wall. But Main street will become quite the urban canyon in the loop.

Re: Five Light

Wow, I really like this design. I think it's perfect for the location. Putting the garage up above the retail keeps the street interaction intact and increases the height of what would otherwise be a rather small office tower. The design is something very new and different for downtown. Looks like a...

Proposed tower on Plaza

I'm not sure I even like this plan. The rendering doesn't look all that great and I really do wish KC would keep the historic church and build this some place else. It's buildings like that church that give an area urban character. It seems like places like Boston and Philly don't have to tear down ...

Re: Are downtown apartment occupancy rapidly trending down?

Three Light hasn't gotten off the ground yet because of the idiocy that the city council pulled in renegading on their end of the longstanding contract with Cordish that began our DT revitalization. That's it. Cordish has NO motivation to move forward on anything quickly now that the city council h...

Re: Heart of America Rapid Transit

What a terrible master plan. When will people understand that there is pretty much ZERO justification for any sort of fixed rail to KCI Airport, let alone heavy rail. Realize that rail doesn't NEED to have justification by itself. Rail to the airport is a great plan when you take away the need for ...

Ebikes are awesome. Perfect for a hilly city like KC. I like how they are trying to keep the bikes parked at dedicated bike stations even though they are dockless.
