Re: Bird Scooters Have Landed

^Are you guys Bird Chargers as well? Curios that Bird stopped planting morning Nests in River Market over last week. At request of RM? And looks like riders are pretty good about not parking on Plaza. Given red zoning Plaza was supposedly Bird's call, will be interesting to see what Lime does. I ch...

Re: Bird Scooters Have Landed

Lime must be very close to launching as I completed my online training to become a 'Juicer' and will be notified when I can come pick up my chargers. It was a nice KC specific page.

There's a large group of fresh birds sitting over in a KCK shipping lot waiting to be set free.

How do we report a found bird that isn't on the map?
More than likely dead (waiting for a charger) or marked for maintenance. So you shouldn't really do anything unless the "brain" is missing on top, in which case contact support ASAP.

Re: Bird Scooters Have Landed

Bird was supposed to launch more scooters this weekend, but was scrapped last minute. Will be happening soon though! On the bright side, they added more "nests" in the Quality Hill/Hospital Hill/39th/Broadway from Armour-43rd! I can see them adding around 50 more with this expansion, but still no ne...

Re: Hospital Hill activity

Foundation is poured for the 2nd crane at CMH, so expect it to rise fairly soon. Also, CMH officially selected their new CEO, so hopefully the development and growth will continue with the new leadership!

Re: 19th and Oak - Milhaus Mixed Use Development in East Crossroads

I thought this project deserved its own thread. It received approval from CPC yesterday: https://www.bizjournals.com/kansascity/news/2018/07/17/milhaus-gets-zoning-approval-for-65-million-east.html The Kansas City Plan Commission on Tuesday recommended rezoning for what would be the largest redevel...

Re: KC in TV and Movies

While walking home from work I came across a large camera crew with plenty of equipment and labeled mic equipment. I'm wondering if their KC HQ will be in the Firestone building where they were all scurrying in and out of. To me at least this building makes sense for it and transporting them from 2 ...

Where did you see this?

Which hotel?

Re: KCMO Downtown Streetcar

I was riding a NB streetcar right after the incident happened (before any Streetcar/police vehicles arrived), and it appeared to me at least that the truck driver must have run the red light or turned in front of the streetcar and struck the front or front corner.

That red crane seems anything but portable. It is quite amazing how it gets around town.
It is quite amazing how they are able to put it together so quickly and efficiently!
