Re: OFFICIAL - 21c Museum Hotel KC (former Savoy Hotel)

I ate here last night. Pretty sureal experience. We ate in the bar side in a booth and ordered off the restraunt menu. Food was excellent and the atmosphere was great. Seemed busy. Aside from the historic stuff, the decor is pretty wild, with it all being art pieces and such. The bar side felt somew...

Re: Would you like to see the Royals move to a downtown stadium?

There are plenty of places surrounding each site that could hold a parking garage. I just didn't include it because I thought of it as a given and didn't think it would be particularly interesting to show. I still maintain that there just shouldn't be a downtown stadium at all. I only put this toget...

Re: Would you like to see the Royals move to a downtown stadium?

I've been thinking a lot about the downtown stadium ideas, in particular having it near 18th and Vine. The city's been struggling for years to get that area working and has poured loads of money into promoting it, so they have a vested interest in its success. A stadium would serve as an anchor. It ...

Re: UMKC Conservatory of Music considers move to downtown

Denny's location would certainly provide the most dramatic site, and I'm assuming would enable a more wild design than the rather subdued initial renderings for the site on 17/Broadway. Also might provide an impetus for traffic calming or large crosswalk/light Broadway. The Denny's Conservatory of ...

Re: Andrews McMeel Publishing to Boley Bldg.

Not sure when this renovation finished, but I'm glad it finally did. Seems like it took forever. Well worth it though. One of my favorite buildings in the city.

Re: 1800 Walnut

If my calculations are correct, absolutely nothing of importance will be obscured by this building when viewed from liberty memorial.

I'm sure that's a relief to everyone

Re: "Flashcube" Building - 720 Main

I've been told the restoration will require the replacement of all windows....so virtually the entire exterior of the building. Of course, they can't take the opportunity to replace it with a cladding that might be more suitable for apartments, because then they wouldn't get historic tax credits. Fo...

I'm out of the loop with the streetcar stuff...how many more votes until they get the okay to start construction? Or was this the last vote?

Re: Would you like to see the Royals move to a downtown stadium?

But seriously though, good job on the renderings. It’s clear you put a lot of time into it. I’m not a fan of the idea itself though. The idea of a stadium at the bottom of liberty memorial’s hill really seems to be in bad taste. The WWI museum is one of only like 4 things in this city that I’d consi...

It's a pretty isolated spot. Not exactly surprised retail isn't taking off there. Hopefully development keeps pushing east around it

Was told first step was swapping 670 and 70 signs as it is easier to rid a 3 numbered interstate than 2. then buried parking for north loop (ballpark) stop, then ballpark (amazon or other field) then parks and bldgs above. remember the city will get this land back so payback is property taxes and s...
