Re: Streetcar to the riverfront

Should PortKC make room available cheaply for the Arabia in the riverfront area?

Re: The Second Board of Trade Building

I thought the Waldheim building was brought down by Executive Hills. FWIW, I have the edition of the Star in which that picture of Kansas City Place was published. Shared the image in the Rag's precursor back when it was split between photostreams and forum.

Re: East Side Development

Isn't the SunFresh on the site of, or across the street from, the location of a previous grocery store that was supported with public funds like 20 or 30 years ago? And then went belly up?

Re: World Cup 2026 at Arrowhead?

Pet peeve. No governmental or quasi-governmental entity representing KC should be allowed to use an image of the skyline that is more than 2 months old. Or 2 weeks or whatever.

I have no idea of when Briarcliff began talking internally about a new building in Riverside.

Re: 3rd & Grand to be redeveloped as TOD

You have to wonder if Briarcliff's announcement of a new office building in Riverside wasn't the blow that made the KCATA shut the process down.

Re: Washington Sq Park between Crown Center/Union Station

You know, why does everything in KC have to be referred to as a version of something done someplace else. It's KC. It's KC's. It's not a replication of something done in some more popular, faster growing city. KC is a thing in itself. Stop it.

Re: Cactuses and Palms Trees in KC?

Nice. Here in Charlotte, windmills are totally reliable, palmettos will get burned many years but don't die, jellies burn most winters and younger ones may not survive. People used to mulch the stalks of bananas, but I don't see that much anymore. Maybe due to the varieties being planted. The plants...

Re: Cactuses and Palms Trees in KC?

Thanks. This is interesting. I've always lamented the lack of native pines in Kansas and Northern Missouri. Whenever I drive through central Missouri (central north/south) I always look for northern stragglers of shortleaf pines out of the Ozarks. I've seen a few around Columbia that I think qualify.

Scooterj, you posted this 14 years ago:
Finding evergreen forests in eastern Douglas county is one of the ecosystem finds in the KC area that surprised me the most.
. Do you remember where that was? Thanks.
