Re: Hospital Hill activity

You need to flip that 90 degrees and put it on top of the garage just south of 23rd st this is a 2008 aerial (bottom center in the image). The parking garage it’s going on and the building next to it with the hospital name hadn’t been built yet in this view. the new tower will be oriented east-west...

Re: Hospital Hill activity

That Children's Mercy tower will became a significant piece of the Crown Center/Hospital Hill skyline.

Re: Three Light

The more I look at Two Light the uglier it becomes. From a distance it just doesn't fit in the skyline. The white lines separating the floors are as ugly as anything I've ever seen on a tall building. If only it was twice as tall and less "blocky." So you're saying you're not a fan! :D Up...

Re: Hospital Hill activity

Designed by BSA LifeStructures, the nine-story tower will be constructed above an existing eight-level parking garage with four above-grade floors. It is located near the southeast corner of 23rd Street and Gillham Road in Kansas City.


Pretty significant structure, should be around 140 ft tall?

Re: Three Light

If only it was twice as tall and less "blocky." If only this was Chicago...if only. That's a silly exaggeration. A city doesn't have to be "Chicago" size, stature or economy to build a 30-40 floor apartment building. The "blockyness" and color of Two Light from the dis...

Re: Two Light - 14th & Grand

The final product of the lettering is tacky.
Font is too bold making it appear blocky - not attractive.
Viewing from the south the letters are so large it makes the building look shorter and blockier.

Re: "Flashcube" Building - 720 Main

I like the building but I'm afraid they are going to mess up the rehab by not interacting with the street efficiently.

Re: New Broadway Bridge

1. Doubling the lanes is literally impossible. No, it's literally not impossible. 1) Look at a satellite image after the bridge. 2 more lanes can be added by encroaching into the Airport. R. Gebaur Rd, the frontage to Wheeler has virtually NO traffic on it at all. A flyover would be required betwee...

Re: New Broadway Bridge

I agree, we should not be demolishing this bridge unless we are going to go all in on making 169 a much larger road. We should be building a NEW bridge and doubling 169's lanes. We built a new 670 viaduct to handle a tiny amount of traffic - sort of a waste. However if the West Bottoms ever took off...

Re: Should Jackson Co. relocate the Correctional Facility?

1) Bring back the death penalty for rape, child molestation, first degree and anyone with 3+ felonies. 2) Create dirt cheap homeless camps like Sheriff Arpaio had in AZ to get dopers, drunks and homeless off of the street. That would save trillions over years. Use the saved $$ to make a real differe...
