Absolutely. Watching the council trying to play up to their constituencies by trying to extract CBA money from Edgemoor is painful. KC's politicians are trying to milk this thing to the point it will no longer be an attractive investment. And once again, KCI may be in KC but KC residents are a only...

Re: Three Light

The $300 million price tag on this development is what I found most interesting. For comparison, One Light supposedly cost 79 million and Two Light was initially priced at 105 million. KCDowntown Did it suddenly add a hotel or office component? Yeah, that is a head scratcher. Maybe the Target hype ...

Re: Three Light

The most interesting quote from the article is non-three light related.

Matt Zammar of Re/MAX Legacy, one of the area's leading condo agents, recently advised Winters that a developer plans at least one new condo tower in the Crown Center area.

Re: We need a new airport!!!

The other main sticking point in the MOU is related to the community benefits agreement. Council members appear to be in disagreement over how the agreement should and actually can be constructed (read as: does the FAA allow funding of housing program not geographically adjacent to the airport?).

Re: We need a new airport!!!

Apparently though the $30 million fee the city would own if they don't meet their obligations is still on the table. I'm fairly certain this continues to be misrepresented by the media. My understanding based on watching committee hearings is that $30 million is the max amount Edgemoor could get re...
