Re: Fantasy Retrofits: Barney Allis Plaza

I know it won't happen, but I'd love to see some buildings developed on some of this site. Maybe a big tower on the north that looks over the plaza. It could be tall so it breaks up the Marriott slab. I'm all for big plazas in the right context, but I don't think BAP needs the entire city block to i...

Re: OFFICIAL - McCown Gordon HQ

Wish we could get some bump outs and plantings around the Muse of the Missouri fountain and add seating/public space, a la the Janette Sadhik-Khan era Manhattan pedestrian updates.

Re: OFFICIAL - Hampton Inn (16th & Main)

The ground level stonework and the balconies are very nice, but I'm not a huge fan of the walls. Some different materials would've done wonders. I could see something as minor as making the brick much darker adding a lot of sophistication
