Re: Are downtown apartment occupancy rapidly trending down?

Also, when it comes to M&A involving KC companies, why does KC, more often than not, wind up on the losing end? Informix goes to CA, Embarq goes to Monroe, Louisiana(!) based Centurytel, Sprint goes to Bellevue. Those are tech companies, but over and over again we see this happen. KC has been bled d...

Re: Are downtown apartment occupancy rapidly trending down?

I don't think you can really discuss this without considering metropolitan job growth and metropolitan population growth, not just downtown job growth and downtown population growth. I'd also like to hear some discussion of how successful KC's focus on 1) entrepreneurship/startups and 2) Richard Flo...

Re: Affordable Housing

That's something, but doesn't sound like a lot of money. What would be done with the 41m? Rehabs? New construction? I would hope that teardowns of all but the decrepit-beyond-rehab would stop. Affordable housing may not be 1 bedroom/person, living, dining, open concept, bonus room and granite counte...

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.

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.

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.
