Re: Bird Scooters Have Landed

Is part of the reason they shut down because of the end of the pilot and needing to reapply for whatever this next phase is KCMO keep advertising? No. Ridership tanked when the temps really dropped. They also entirely lost out on any revenue for two days on/after the blizzard since they did what wa...

Re: OFFICIAL - The Grand (former Traders on Grand)

What utilities are included with DT rentals. I assume that heating is included? water and trash? Also, it seems a lot of people complain about the price but most buildings include ammenities that remove costs you might normally have: pools, gym spaces, entertainment areas, etc. You have to give som...

Re: OFFICIAL - The Grand (former Traders on Grand)

went here for downtown dazzle this weekend. i like the way they got some natural light down into the lower level club lounge area. the views on the pool deck are good but i do question the value of putting such a small 4' pool up there, especially in a spot that looks like the pool itself is shaded...

Lime pulled out of the market until Spring. All staff at the warehouse were laid off unexpectedly.

Re: Are downtown apartment occupancy rapidly trending down?

I participated in the Downtown Dazzle tours today. While at Two Light the company rep was still stating that Three Light/The Midland Apt's are still on track for a groundbreaking in early 2019. No specifics given or anything. Thoughts on the tours: Two Light is immensely better/nicer than One Light....

Re: Are downtown apartment occupancy rapidly trending down?

All depends on the price point. My somewhat-reasonably priced building on Broadway (not a QH property) has been completely leased out since I moved in two years ago.

Re: Misc Crossroads News

Did it go downhill? Last time I was there it was fine. 'So last 3 years ago' or sign of Xroads getting more supply (of eats/drinks) than demand? Have been wondering if a breaking point has hit. It hasn't hit the breaking point. This place was an expensive option that didn't have a clear direction i...

Re: Bird Scooters Have Landed

Bird had its first coordinated hoarder takedown in KC with KCKPD's help retrieving 58 scooters from inside an apartment building. Still quite a few smaller hoards located throughout the city, so hopefully they will be taken care of soon. i would like to subscribe to this a&e television show effecti...

Re: Bird Scooters Have Landed

Lime recalled it's Gen 1 scooters (Okai) in addition to the Segway scooters for the concerns of the decks breaking. Gen 3 should be the only one's you see out and about for awhile. Lime is ramping down as well with a sharp decrease in nests for releasing. Bird hasn't changed a thing so far except fo...

Re: Bird Scooters Have Landed

Bird has cut down on midtown scooters lately, though Lime still has many. The fleet has been down lately again. The new "Gen 0" tanks were having many issues so almost all have been pulled, and that's why we have the Segway's now. Expect an uptick in Birds again as 200+ were supposed to be delivere...

Re: Bird Scooters Have Landed

I was able to visit the KC Lime Hub and was overall very surprised at how the operation is ran. The below images show the amount of Limes they capture in a regular night vs. us Juicers (and shows how easy it is to steal one down there...) and how many damaged ones we have already. The one I dropped ...

Re: Bird Scooters Have Landed

Here is an article about the new Bird scooters. Sounds like they aren't rolling those out in KC (or anywhere yet), but maybe some have made their way? https://techcrunch.com/2018/10/04/bird-unveils-custom-electric-scooters-and-delivery They are mostly on the West coast and are being rolled out else...
