Re: KCTV5 tower.

I love it. It says "Kansas City" to me as much as stone walls, hills, the Power and Light Building, Union Station, or Liberty Memorial. I would be very sad to see it removed.

this seems to be obvious to everyone but me: what are the north-south streets this development lies between? Thanks.

Re: OFFICIAL - New Downtown YMCA (former Lyric Theater)

According to the Collison article "dramatic two-story windows will be inserted along Central Street to bring in natural light and provide a contemporary look to the exterior". That and the existence in both the current building and the renderings of small first story windows and a door toward the fr...

Re: Old Federal Reserve (925 Grand)

Don't you think the planters and pedestals are really barricades? I'm thinking they are anchored and will be destroyed in the removal process.

I know the current display isn't, but does anyone know if the lamp/projector installation is permanent?

Re: East Village Transit Center

Will people be able to wait in the enclosed building and see when they need to exit to catch their buses?

Re: Politics

Fang, I find your ideas on treatment of immigrants as expressed here to be really pretty nasty. And I must say, I'm surprised. I agree with Fuckyou that immigrants are pretty savvy at sorting geographic variations in economic conditions for themselves and aligning their movements in accord with thos...

Re: KCI Flight Schedule Adjustments

Charleston has recently been named the #1 tourist destination city in the US. Not a surprise to me that BA would choose to fly there over KC or STL.

Re: Plaza move-ins (ongoing)

Would be a shame to lose, not only for the building itself, but for what the presence of churches says about the nature of the Plaza - more than a shopping center. (And, please, no one state that the building is not in the Plaza proper.) What recent attempt using the Plaza as a model - even unconsci...

Re: Hyperloop between KC and STL

Any attempt at this will be killed in the legislature due to lobbying by the state's Fraternal Order of Gas Sellers and Convenience Store Owners.
