Re: Tracks 215 Project

Kevin Collison will have a story on this tomorrow. He may or may not have any new information. It's a nice project overall but I wonder how the design will change overtime.

Re: Hotel Bravo- 17th and Wyandotte

https://media.bizj.us/view/img/11294592/c011*750xx4000-2250-0-25.jpg I wonder if the colors will be similar to the Loews Hotel. It looks like an interesting design but the tan colors are meh. Maybe they are doing this to honor the Performing Arts Center. I don't know. I assume CannonDesign is still...

Re: Ballpark Village v4.7 (st. louis)

Are there any plans for the parking lots north of the development? I know of something. Another residential tower is definite at Walnut and Broadway as well as an office building at 8th and Walnut (behind the Pennant Building). The center lot is up in the air but talks to build a parking garage the...

Looks more like a hotel now because of the windows or maybe they are doing that to make it fit in with the surroundings better. Either way, good to see some more height added to this.

Looks to be of decent quality. The balconies are a nice touch. The only thing I have a problem with is the white cement board/stucco. Looks like it could've been of a darker color but it will look fine.

Re: On-going downtown development projects

Some are easily impressed. Infill is nice in lieu of height. Don't get me wrong, Downtown KC is seeing some nice infill. I'm just saying those two photos are nearly identical. You would have to be a development nerd to really find the differences without studying the photos and even then, there are...

Re: City Center Square for sale

Was LightWell the name of a restaurant on top of the short section? They keep talking about reopening the LIghtWell. Looks open to me if actually a lower case lightwell. I think it's just the developer's name, right? No clue, really. The should rebrand it the "We don't want to pay 95% of our proper...

Re: OFFICIAL - Reverb (1800 Walnut)

Any foundation work yet on this one? Moving a lot of dirt right now. Crane should be up soon, as they've got a sidewalk closure on Walnut for it. Thanks for the update. As many on here know, I live in STL and don't come over to KC all the time to check in on this stuff. Looking forward to it rising...

Not sure if this includes anything new, but this description is on BNIM's website. Strata is 260,000 square feet and 16 stories of environmentally responsible, energy efficient, high-performance office design. This Class A Office Building takes advantage of an urban infill site currently occupied by...

Re: Politics

It got me to thinking and was wondering if Springfield will eventually overtake the Missouri Side of KC as the 2nd Missouri Metro in terms of importance, state funding, political influence, etc or has it already gotten to that point? The Springfield metro is reaching the 600,000 range, the region i...

Unsure if this has been posted yet -- VR tour of what the finished hotel will look like.
Neat! If they slowed it down a little bit, I wouldn't be so dizzy.

This seems to be a trend for Copaken. Arterra underwent a similar cheapening at the very last minute as well.
Hopefully Strata doesn't get revised since Copaken has their hand in it.
