Re: Misc Crossroads News

My bet is the next arts district will be west bottoms or the northeast. I could see it changing in the next five years, although probably more likely in the next ten.

Re: Phase 2 streetcar to UMKC

What would need to happen in order to shut down main to cars and only allow cross traffic every few blocks. I know it’s unlikely, but what steps would need to be taken

Re: Uptown Theatre district improvements

I’d imagine if the can hang on until the uptown district apartments they’d do better, but with the price point I think they might have more luck with the crossroads. I’ve spoken to a lot of people about it recently who live downtown and didn’t know it was there

I think they are making a good choice there. It will be good for traffic to add more parking in there.
Just out of curiousity what part of town do you live in, and how often do you visit that part of westport.

Re: OFFICIAL - Hampton Inn (16th & Main)

Oh definitely I agree that Kansas City’s skyline is quite picturesque for its size for in my opinion due to the amount of variation. I know that globally you basically get glass or stucco looking buildings now adays. I guess I would just rather see some color on the buildings if they aren’t going to...

Re: Hong Kong

Too lazy to figure out how to post pictures, so I’ll explain what I’ve noticed in the last 4 months. The biggest thing I’ve noticed is how a lot of the older buildings pertrude out after the first floor which draws pedestrians eyes down instead of up. Which makes it in my opinion a more pleasant and...
