Re: On-going downtown development projects

I just wanted to keep an updated sticky for on-going development projects in downtown KC (let's define that loosely as the River Market-Crossroads-Plaza Corridor). I would like to continually update this. I would like to keep this to concrete proposals (even if they don't come to fruition) rather t...

Re: 13th and Grand tower

New Copaken Brooks update on the page for this, including a new render video from HOK on their website. The architecture looks nice and it seems to be better than the initial rendering.

Re: KCMO Downtown Streetcar

Atlanta provides some lessons. The first five months of 2017 they had 200,000 riders. We had almost 800,000 https://atlanta.curbed.com/2017/6/9/15760906/atlanta-streetcar-increased-ridership-resolved-safety-issues Right, I'm aware of the general connection between fares and ridership.

Re: Phase 2 streetcar to UMKC

Re: We need a new airport!!!

Since moving to Chicago, I haven’t been as up on this as I’d like to be. I’ve looked at their website, and am I wrong in thinking that a lot of the architectural renderings are subject to changes?

Re: New Broadway Bridge

Disgusting. So the grand plan is a bog-standard MoDOT highway overpass of a new bridge? Let me guess: they'll tack on a five-foot wide pedestrian path on one side and pat themselves on the back. Oh, we're so urban and progressive! Is connecting 169 and I-35 locked in as the highest priority? In my ...

Agreed. The saddest part to me is that even a Democrat, Jay Nixon, withheld funds that were meant for post-secondary education. In some ways, he was the best Republican governor Missouri has had (obvious joke).

Re: KCMO Downtown Streetcar

Do you think they will be the same color scheme, or do you think there will ever be another color scheme incorporated? you are the first to ask. i doubt it. why? I like the classiness of the black and white colour scheme, and it is iconic. The times that I've seen some color added via smaller wraps...

Re: UMKC Conservatory of Music considers move to downtown

What does UMKC even get from the state and the UM system. This should push for a full name change to Kansas City University. If they aren't going to truly partner with us, we should cut them loose. Just to be clear, the UM System does a lot for each of its campuses, including the new funding path b...

Is it likely that Kansas City (and it's metro) will ever grow to become the size of Denver or Seattle?

KC Metro Transportation Ideas

I'm currently living in Chicago, and I have to admit the public transit here has me spoiled now. I'm so excited for Kansas City, though. I made a map that kind of outlines a vision for KCI to Streetcar transit, but it's obviously a dream. I'd love to hear everyone's ideas and opinions, with the unde...
