Re: New Downtown YMCA

Having the front facade of an old theater, of all things, almost seems like it would be a detriment. The place isn't going to look like a gym. Baffling.

Re: Unbuilt KC

Just curious, which projects in this thread would you all have liked better than what actually got built and why? West Edge seems to be an obvious one, but what others? My personal pick would have to be the original design for Liberty Memorial. http://68.media.tumblr.com/a4ead46e3b3428fd97e239473b56...

Any idea how the study got the cc line estimate so wrong? Seems like a big thing to not take into account

Here's more of the early P&L design. They came from here if anyone's interested. https://williamcorneli.wordpress.com/2006/09/18/power-light-district-kansas-city-mo/ https://williamcorneli.files.wordpress.com/2013/02/portfolio2-101.jpg https://williamcorneli.files.wordpress.com/2013/02/power_log...

Re: Misc Crossroads News

Lane building was still standing today. Looked untouched. I'm no demolition expert, but it seems like this is taking a while.

Re: We need a new airport!!!

Design-wise, the appearance needs some work. The renderings were pretty underwhelming outside of the neat fountain gimmick and the roof design.

Glad to hear that it's doing well! I've been concerned that its location further east would make it unpopular.

Obviously that is down the road a bit but it's a good point as the current 3 terminal configuration is not very conducive for a light rail connect.

Yeah, it's good they're at least thinking about it.

Re: We need a new airport!!!

Edgemoor is looking at/ is planning to design the terminal so that it can be connected to light rail in the future. This would mean designing everything with room for tracks and a station. He mentioned they would design it so that it could use either rail or BRT. Additionally, Uber and Taxi Drivers...

Re: Misc Crossroads News

The more I think about this situation, the more frustrated I get. Of all the places! A surface lot with virtually no development plans, right next door to a parking garage, made out of the footprint of a 128 year old building, on the streetcar line, in an area of town already blighted with surface l...

Re: Misc Crossroads News

It would be a shame for a building this old to be demolished, even if it isn't an architectural marvel. Seems like at least the facade could be preserved
