Re: Fixing KC's lack of downtown parking?

You're all missing the point. See, there's no longer enough parking 10ft or less from every door, so it may as well be like there's no parking at all.
It's time to level half of downtown again.

I think it's currently in storage, so it still exists. They could put it in the hotel lobby/atrium or something.

Re: The Future of Crown Center

No one, not even Union Hill homeowners can ever seriously object to anything of height being built on Crown Centers south lots. That model showing office high rises on those blocks sat next to the Streetcar in Crown Center shops for over 40 years, even before Union Hill was cleared for housing. Tha...

Re: Three Light

I agree that the very existence of these projects is amazing, but I think it's worth getting the discussion on their design started early so that by the time we reach the proverbial Mars we can have an informed discussion on the topic. I don't think anybody is outright rejecting these buildings in t...

Re: Three Light

“The consistency is already ruined” and the next breath, “I hate that the buildings look similar!” I don't have a big issue with the uniformity of the buildings, I just think it's odd that the signs don't match despite the matching architecture. I was just offering a way of turning that into a nice...

Maybe I'm going insane, but it seems like I read somewhere that they were going to keep a bit of the rock as decor, Crown Center-style.

Re: Northeast Industrial District Housing

The amusement park was called Electric Park. The first version was there in the East Bottoms, but it got moved way down south at some point. I believe that version is the more famous one.
