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...

Re: Politics

Currently working in China teaching children English, I can’t even comprehend the callousness of some towards foreign children. It’s getting to the point where I’m questioning if I ever want to go back to the us. I want to fight it but I’m not sure how anymore

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: 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...

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...
