Re: 1800 Walnut

Loss of the waves is a real loss. It appears surface detailing may have disappeared from the west side, too. The design has gone from exciting to another glass building. Is that the price of providing affordable housing in market rate buildings?

Re: Bannister Mall/Cerner

It's remarkable how KC politicians have made the same mistakes over and over again since the 1960's trying repeatedly and failing to create a critical mass making the same mistakes each time. Only the P&L District has really succeeded and that was due to perfect timing (the renewed interest in urba...

Re: OFFICIAL - 46 Penn Centre

Loss of the Balcony Building would have been a tragedy and I'm glad it was stopped. However, if a developer comes in with a proposal that satisfies the requirements of the neighbor-vetted Plaza Plan (height limitations, bowl and all that), they should not then be able to be held hostage by Save the ...

Thanks, flying ember. I was just riffing off the alarm at the windows in One Light a couple of years past. But your input is always welcome. b'y the way, are you Kevin Carlisle? I sense a similar tone between you and he who posts on the Star.

Re: North Plaza Hotel- 46th and Broadway

13 stories/10 stories scaled back to 10 stories/8 stories because a neighbor complains their view will be blocked. This has got to stop. KC planning/zoning/whatever needs to find a new paradigm for plan approval.

My searches for La Raza Pizza keep coming back to Pizza Hut. In particular, Gene Camarena of Wichita. Owner of one of the 150 largest Hispanic owned companies in the country. Marriott hotels are among his business interests.

Re: Troost developments

Just took a Google Maps walk along Armour from Troost to Paseo.This stretch holds such promise for providing a strong East/West connector. Some great buildings already there. Streetcar would blow it up.

Re: On-going downtown development projects

Apart from government buildings, is this the only downtown building of any size put up in the '70s? What are thoughts on possible uses? Office? Residential? Server farm? Massive escape venue?

Re: Liquor license conditions banished

Are you saying it will just be an up or down vote by neighboring owners on applications? No negotiations allowed? Who is bringing the lawsuit against conditions? A prospective bar owner? Neighbors of a prospective bar owner?

Re: Muehlebach Hotel / KC Club Project

Perhaps they're switching the hotel and apartments so the hotel is adjacent to the parking deck they're building as part of the office building. I think the article above tells us. The hotel operator is a Hyatt brand. It makes sense that they would put the hotel in another building, because I sure ...
