Yes, but it would also have a slab of the Titanic


That's down in Branson.

There's a pyramid hotel/casino in Vegas that has a piece of the Titanic's side for some reason.

Re: Homogenization of KC

Architecturally, I think we should celebrate the city's art deco more. It could even be used as a style to base new development off. I'm not advocating for full on imitations, but more as inspiration. Just something other than the grey shipping containers we've been getting. We should also show off ...

Re: Oak Tower

Old business journal article I found from 1996. I offer this as evidence that they once planned to restore more than the first 3 floors. Oak Tower, built 77 years ago at 324 E. 11th St. in Kansas City and saddled with high vacancies in recent years, is coming back to life as a high-tech home for tel...

I think it's up to the people who live along it. I bet most of the people who have complained about the name change on the Star's comments, facebook, ect, had never even heard of the paseo before this idea was put forward.

Re: Two Light - 14th & Grand

And, like I said before, we aren't asking for engineering marvels or architectural masterpieces like you seem to be suggesting. Personally, I would be happy with just slightly different shades of glass/mullions. I can't imagine that would add much to the budget.

Re: Two Light - 14th & Grand

I had initially assumed that Four Light would occupy only the western half of its block, such that it would have the same footprint as Two and Three but rotated 90 degrees. If Cordish were simply to limit the height of what they build on the sliver that fronts Main it would do a lot to open up view...

Re: Two Light - 14th & Grand

Is it Cordish’s responsibility and financial burden to go out of their way to build drastically different buildings to maintain how it looks from a certain vantage point? Shouldn’t we be looking at the fact that this city’s most iconic high rise buildings have all been built in clusters during cert...
