Re: Hotel Overbuilding?

I don't think "overbuilding" on the food, bar and entertainment scene is a bad thing for a local stand point. If we overbuild our hotel availability and brands begin to pull out or not build new, then saturation is a bad thing in room sales for the future.

Re: OFFICIAL - Loews Convention Hotel (formerly Hyatt)

I have always noticed the exposure as well. The one thing that I wish was flying in and out of our city doesn't provide any good views of downtown. When you fly into most cities (thinking here CHI, LA, MKE, CLE, STL, NYC, CLT, PHX, DAL and most others) the air traffic patterns and flight elevations ...

Re: OFFICIAL - Loews Convention Hotel (formerly Hyatt)

Leows just announced for Memphis. Only 500 rooms but still taller then ours :roll: https://www.bizjournals.com/memphis/new ... ntown.html Enjoyed fanily time downtown today and this project is moving along great. The look of the renderings for Memphis are way more disappointing than our Loews IMO.

Re: We need a new airport!!!

But that isn't the way the at article reads in the paper. Justus says that next week she is is going to draw up amendment to the monies and where they can be allotted from. That amendment then will be voted on.
Maybe I'm missing something, but that is what the article reads.

Re: We need a new airport!!!

KC STAR Thursday’s debate was the latest in a long and difficult process to replace the three aging terminals at KCI that’s likely to drag into January or beyond. Galen Beaufort, who testified on behalf of the city attorney’s office, said the money — $48.8 million — would bridge the gap between the ...

Re: We need a new airport!!!

Thanks for posting that link. The report had an Edgemoor Rep on that didn't say December 2023 - He said if the groundbreaking paperwork would be signed by December 15 this year, it is feasible that the completion date is 2023. The earlier the better.

Re: We need a new airport!!!

According to Edgemoor on WDAF the new terminal will now be completed by late Summer to Fall 2023 after the council meeting discussion today. 5 years from now. As long as the committee signs the agreement on December 15th for construction to begin after the new year. If not completed by Fall 2023, Ed...

Now that is pretty pathetic that an administrator/moderator attacks a poster for absolutely no reason at all. Pathetic and immature. It's his/her playground, but if it is run like that, who wants to play with him/her (the bully) on the playground. Could have been professional and sent me a PM for hi...

Re: We need a new airport!!!

What are you talking about? They posted an update this week https://www.kci-edgemoor.com/news/ The slowdown is because the next steps are waiting on FAA approval. They're saying the first major work could begin within two months. That hasn't slipped, the schedule from two months ago was the same. T...

Re: We need a new airport!!!

The underwhelming terminal drawings and now the lack of any updates and information on the airport is deafening.
It just seems that it will be even more delayed now.
