Hong Kong

Hi all I recently moved from midtown to Hong Kong. I was wondering if you all would mind if I shared some of what I've noticed here in regards to urban development. I'm not sure how to post pictures to this forum. I know Hong Kong is obviously different but I've noticed a few things that I think cou...

What happens with the Plaza Extension if there is not federal money? Scale Back design? Single Track sections?


TBD, but I can assure you we won't single track it. That would be a ridiculous waste of money. Pray for blue in the midterms!



Or better vote blue in the midterms

Re: Martini Corner near 31st/Gilham

Full Disclosure: I do work at Cafe Europa, however I am leaving in a week so I feel I can be open.

Re: Three Light

While I am a huge fan of affordable housing, I agree that the city already negotiated this aspect. I would love to see them negotiate the midland as affordable, but I'm not sure trying to negotiate the light buildings will do anything but piss cordish off. If another developer comes in then we can n...

Re: 18th and Vine

Is there anything they can do to designate eighteenth and fine as a district so that it doesn't have to be tied to population?

Re: 18th and Vine

Good, if they could connect it continuously with east crossroads I could see them really thrive. A bar district starting out then food options would be great. Grow it like martini corner has grown. That used to be a spot people didn't want to go to until velvet underdog went there. Just please no mo...

Re: St. Louis/CWE studio gang skyscraper proposal

I've read on urbanstl that people weren't super keen on the asthetics but I really like it. It's certainly unique but it sort of reminds me of Taipei 101. I think it will be a great addition to the cwe. I think sort of looks like East Asian modernism and I really appreciate a mix of different archit...

Re: Church of the Resurrection Downtown Campus

Agreed I would definitely prefer the original even with the creepy cross. I have noticed the chripsters (I.e. Christian hipsters) in KC become much less pronounced since Trump was elected. Also seen quite a few people renounce. As for me I just hope we go the way of Scotland and turn the churches in...

Yeah if this could be moved towards the east bottoms that could eventually be the endpoint for a potential north south line with prospect and chesnut.

Re: Berlin - Europe

I did see the palace, it isn't finished yet. While I do like the frauenkirche, I'm slightly wary to be excited for this one. I've seen enough of the rebuilt areas in Potsdam to know that it won't ever look quite right

Berlin - Europe

I recently returned to Berlin, after having lived there some five years ago. I always knew that it didn't have proper suburbs. It was one of the things that drew me into urban development & urban planning. I know that the wall had a lot of effect on that. I find it interesting to see a city that...

It's not adding to the on street parking, so my guess is the same place they were when ever other building was torn down without a development plan, nowhere to be seen

Re: KCMO Downtown Streetcar

They are converting the flashcube building to apartments and adding another building, so my guess would be no.
