Re: Muehlebach Hotel

This is one of the mislabeled photos in the library's collection. It's actually a photo of one of the dining rooms of the demolished Baltimore Hotel, which stood where City Center Square is now. The Baltimore Hotel had some of the best public spaces of any building in the city. The building only st...

Re: Muehlebach Hotel

Found this on the library site with the only description being "A dining room, Hotel Muehlebach; K.C., Mo. (1926)" I've never seen this room in any pictures, old or new, which is weird considering how grand of a space it is. You'd think it would have been photographed more. I even looked a...

I was kind of surprised by the scathing reviews this place has received on Maps. Do any of you live here? What's your experience been like?

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...

Re: Three Light

Maybe the font of the numbers could get increasingly bold from building to building. The consistency is already ruined, so we might as well embrace it.

I know they found a snake in there shortly after it opened, but have there been other cases?
