Re: Two Light - 14th & Grand

The monotonous sky wall in the background really bothers me. Science just did it that way because it’s too cheap to make lots of interesting skies like they have in other, cooler planets. At least ours changes color and has moving clouds Clouds are so cheap looking though, and they keep using the s...

Re: Closing Grand all the time is stupid.

Heads up for all you bus riders and saturday downtown drivers, Grand will be closed this Saturday for an event! [-X We have had more meetings with the city, sprint center, KCPD traffic control and other involved groups about how to handle Two Light coming online. The positive, Sprint Center closes d...

Re: Two Light - 14th & Grand

I note that neither you nor anyone else on the board complains that Cordish will take some 10-15 years to build out all of its development sites with premium high-rises. If the goal were to get rid of development sites as quickly as possible then clearly it would have been better for them to have b...

Re: Two Light - 14th & Grand

Incredible progress in a decade but still a lot of work to do. The new Lights will help fill in but I wonder when the other lots will be developed. Are any of them for sale? I’m convinced Copaken is sitting on that prime lot at 13th and Grand and have no serious intentions to build. After the light...

Four light is exciting because it’s almost the equivalent footprint of a two Light and one light combined. Much better canvas to do something different.

Re: Two Light - 14th & Grand

Not sure on Three Light breaking ground. They want to hit a certain lease percentage before starting which they're very close to BUT, the fiasco with the two city council members pushed things back slightly.

Re: Two Light - 14th & Grand

The murals look fine. It has been said before, but I'll say it again, the street level experience along the building was done very well. That was definitely the most important thing for me. I'm not as concerned about the wall of glass. Once all the landscaping goes in, it's going to look great. The...

So we all know what's being discussed. I snapped the top three, the bottom one is off of a co-workers social media and shows the indoor spa. https://preview.ibb.co/doHJK7/IMG_9502.jpg https://preview.ibb.co/kOgjsS/IMG_9507.jpg https://preview.ibb.co/eV8Qz7/IMG_9515.jpg https://preview.ibb.co/d1VNe7/...

Re: Two Light - 14th & Grand

The side facing Truman is (going off memory) a montage of the Royals (2015 WS celebration), Chiefs (Len Dawson), and Sporting KC (Matt Besler). I haven't had a good look at the Grand-facing side to even notice what was on it. Mario Chalmers hitting a 3 in the 2008 National Championship. Arguably th...

Re: Two Light - 14th & Grand

I strongly dislike KU, but understand KC is very much a KU City. They’re historically a top 4 college basketball school, so I think it’s an important tie in. Unfortunately, there’s not many if any mizzou basketball players worthy of a mural. I’ve grown to become a major mizzou guy since moving to Ka...

^^ Royals, Chiefs, Sporting, KU, Monarchs, Jazz etc are all represented. Keep in mind, there will be murals on the future buildings as well.

Re: Two Light - 14th & Grand

So, I wonder if the issue with these buildings isn't so much with the glass and similar style but the location. Any other buildings, even if they are all different styles at these locations and over 20 stories are going to have a dramatic change on the skyline and hide all the wonderful stair step ...

Re: Two Light - 14th & Grand

Realistically, it sounds like Stranger Things has tried his best to convey our messages to his higher-ups. They have made the choice to not change the designs or materials used. There is nothing we can do and nothing he can do. Maybe if we lived in a less car-dependent city the $10-20 million that ...

Re: Two Light - 14th & Grand

Also, let's put aside the defense that cordish just loves this architecture. They're doing it because it's cheap and we all know it. I shouldn’t even respond to such a stupid comment but I can’t resist. These buildings aren’t cheap. Do some research and compare them to other buildings of similar he...
