Re: Old KCPS HQ - 12th & McGee

If they could put a new building on the southern half of the site (one that actually encouraged people to use the street) I could rethink. But, if the whole block had to be saved as is, including both parking structures, would you still favor saving the building? Is 100 or so affordable apts and 3 ...

Re: Old KCPS HQ - 12th & McGee

Before you start - this post assumes that the building could only be saved as is, because of the use of historical tax credits. I don't have any love for this building and won't lose any sleep if this building is torn down. Obviously I'd take this building over a surface parking lot any day of the ...

I’m sure they have some legitimate ideas floating around for this site as seen in the 2018 Renderings they produced.
What renderings are you referring to?

Re: Old KCPS HQ - 12th & McGee

Jon Copaken, principal of the firm, said that while there are no immediate development plans for the 2.5-acre site next door to the Sprint Center, the nine-story building likely will be razed. This sentence from the Cityscene article alone completely destroys any hope I'd have for this site. It's i...

My guesstimate of how 3 light will look from LM. It's hard to make it exact with 2 pershing blocking the street level

Re: OFFICIAL - Loews Convention Hotel (formerly Hyatt)

Unless you're walking by... the view that ultimately matters. The more important views are looking south from the loop and looking east/northeast from the convention area. It is a convention hotel after all. If the crossroads hates their view so much, then maybe they should be building the area up ...

Re: Attention regional businesses

https://www.loopnet.com/Listing/1034-Main-St-Kansas-City-MO/4258676/ I noticed that the 1034 Main page was updated recently and shows a 2021 completion date. Do we think that could be where W&R is going? This is probably the most important site in the loop to build on. Hope this is a sign of someth...

Re: GO ROYALS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

It would create a barrier between the CBD and the River Market, would almost certainly require the demolition of some buildings, would drop a massive dead superblock into the middle of what should be the core of downtown, would eliminate a section of Baltimore, would block off Wyandotte entirely fro...

Developing surface lots should be higher priority.
I mean, sure, but if this block got developed, I don't think they need to preserve the parking garage.

To the west, it has a ground floor and parking above.
I think I'd prefer to see that replaced by something more substantial. The more parking structures we can demolish the better!

Re: Three Light

It has a lot of character. I’d love to see a new building wrap around it in the same way 4 light will wrap the main street theater.

What an interesting intersection 14th and Baltimore could be; the president hotel, p&l building, the IBM building and 4 light
