My girlfriend ruined the fountain symbol for me by complaining that it just looks like a big flaccid penis. :(
I don't think it's close enough or obvious enough to matter. The ends are too sharp and the arcs don't quite form the....you know.

I'm sorry, but your girlfriend just has a dirty mind.

Re: Status and future of the River Market area??

As great as the P&L district is for downtown, I wish they had integrated the existing buildings a bit better. Would've injected some prebuilt character into the development. I understand tearing down some of the smaller stuff, but there was no reason the TWA building, for instance, had to be torn do...

Are the buildings in the picture some of the ones torn down for P&L?

Re: We need a new airport!!!

There shouldn't even be questions about the developers at this point. Seems like the city is trying to make this as needlessly difficult and complicated a process as possible. Doing junk like this isn't going to convince any party to work harder, it's just going to make everyone panic.

Re: Politics

The government is the largest employer in KC, so I guess much of the city is essentially jobless right now. Any ideas what impact this is having on the local economy?

Project Price is now over $800million. Opportunity zones are being looked at due to potential financial bonuses. The East Loop and West Bottoms areas are both opportunity zones. West Bottoms sounds like the better option to me. Opinions?

Re: Ambassador Hotel (1111 Grand)

That looks pretty bad. Maybe there's some flashing or something that they just haven't installed yet.

That picture could be from 8 months ago
I think the permanent signage is new, or maybe I never noticed it before

Re: OFFICIAL - City Bank Building (Church of Scientology)

Am I the only one who doesn't like rooftop signs in general? Street level signs at least add to the streetscape and tell you about what's in the ground floor of a building, but rooftop signs are essentially just giant advertisements that typically don't complement the building itself at all. I never...
