Re: OFFICIAL - 46 Penn Centre

I assumed they had a tenant and was wondering if they had lost them. Guess not.

Re: Amazon searching for second HQ

Tower, I'm tempted to feel the same way about rapid transit. I can see that an excellent system coupled with a prime location with reference to it, could reduce the need for parking space. But I wonder if part of the purpose in including it was just culture posturing.

Re: Amazon searching for second HQ

I agree that the recent stance of the NC legislature on equal protection issues is a problem for Raleigh - maybe their biggest problem.

Re: UMKC Conservatory of Music considers move to downtown

Re: bigger and better. When first announced, the scope of the project was bigger than the Conservatory. It included other arts-related entities. Seems like the radio station, visual arts, maybe the theater program were being considered. They were supposed to be added in later stages. Maybe some of t...

Re: We need a new airport!!!

If the vote is not "required" by anything other than a vote (wimp vote, I suspect, i.e. save our political asses) by a previous iteration of the Council, the current Council needs grow some, dump the promise and do what's right for the CSA of nearly 2.5 million people: new terminal.

Re: Oak Tower

I suspect the owners also felt that by making the building look more 'modern' they would make it more marketable.

Re: Oak Tower

I think the emporis report is wrong. I was attending UMKC and living North when the Gothic disappeared. Twice a day I drove down Oak. It was a long time ago, but I'm pretty sure I remember it being removed. I sure remember feeling sick to my stomach.

Re: Downtown office vacancy

The reason they include midtown and plaza as part of downtown is because only to locals are they separate entities. On airplane w atlantan: "where did you stay?" response: "Downtown on the Plaza." distinction only exists in your minds. Truly. Wake up. Release your minds.

Re: Eclipse

In June, I reserved two rental cars at KCI for pickup Sunday the 20th. I cancelled one of them immediately. I forgot that I had done that and cancelled the second reservation about a week ago.
