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: Big, empty buildings. What's left?

Anyone know anything about the Belger properties between Main and Walnut, south of 20th? Anything in the works yet?

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: OFFICIAL - Corrigan Building

I like the idea of Main being low- to mid-rise with taller buildings behind them on Baltimore and Walnut.

If this building didn't go one foot higher it would still be a huge boon to the neighborhood.

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.

Re: Plaza move-ins (ongoing)

The neighbors' arguments are weak, but this site deserves better. Not a good fit for the neighborhood. The city should veto this project.

Re: Keystone Innovation District

This is being described as a new thing for KC, but it seems to me that what he's proposing is what the Crossroads already is. Sitting on the edge of the Crossroads as described, it's not going to function as a stand-alone effort. It could certainly bring some added energy and maybe beef up some piec...

Re: Keystone Innovation District

I'm surprised this initiative isn't generating more discussion here. Maybe it's because it's currently conceptual and not bricks and mortar.

Re: Keystone Innovation District

I read the article. From the description, I don't see anything being proposed that is new and different. Seems like it's all being done by a number of other players in KC. Am I wrong? I guess the concept includes a campus with some ancillary functions like a little retail, but the Crossroads already...

Re: 1800 Walnut

Love the waves. Probably will by done by KC's own Zahner. Question to those lamenting the street experience: in your opinion, what differences would have made the building excellent? "More street level retail" alone isn't an answer as that would have reduced ground level parking. How would you add g...
