Re: The KCMO School District

Redistrict new map https://twitter.com/rayweikal_kcps/status/1008494046405382144?s=21 You can see the population trends in the district. They pulled all of the crossroads out of the rest of downtown. It appears to me they did the opposite of what you said. They consolidated crossroads with downtown...

Re: World Cup 2026 at Arrowhead?

I think the only additional thing I would like is some rail train service to TSC. Probably a pipe dream, but drunk soccer fans traveling from the stadium to hotels would be dangerous. There will be free shuttle service between downtown and TSC. I think they should add shuttle service directly to th...

Re: World Cup 2026 at Arrowhead?

We will definitely have a new airport, 1000s of new downtown hotel rooms including a new convention hotel, and potentially we’ll have streetcar extended to the plaza by then connecting even more hotel rooms. If we can demonstrate how express buses with dedicated lanes/routes from both the plaza and ...

The World Cup was officially awarded to North America in 2026 this morning. It will be several more months until they select host city sites.

Re: OFFICIAL: Port Authority Riverfront Project

Not a fan of an entire affordable housing building next to the nice market rate building. I mean I get affordable housing can't have every Bell and whistle amenity but all affordable housing tends to turn into a mess. This is a gross overstatement KCPowercat. One-fourth of the buildings in the Rive...

Re: Capping the Loop

Also, maybe there is another way to affect travel times aside from highway lanes? Like, gee, I dunno build light rail instead?

Re: Liberty Memorial Musuem and Penn Valley Park

I think it would be neat to have a pedestrian bridge from the east side of liberty memorial over main to crown center I'm kind of surprised there isn't one already. Or maybe even a gondola? Edit for sarcasm clarity: though I was joking about the gondola, I actually think a skybridge would be kind o...

Re: 3rd & Grand to be redeveloped as TOD

At 200,000 sq ft, this is a pretty good sized office project. I'm wondering what happened to the building that was formerly occupied by the architectural firm (Populous??). Whoever it was, they moved to the plaza. Is that space vacant or has it been leased since? Very un-Kansas City like for an ent...

Re: World Cup 2026 at Arrowhead?

Sporting president Jake Reid said that if the US wins the bid, he is fairly confident KC will be one of the host cities. He said he was more concerned about the US actually winning the bid because of FIFA’s politics (and corruption)

Re: Plaza move-ins (ongoing)

There is a "last word syndrome" that happens on the forum that causes people to continuously repeat themselves because they feel if they don't get the last word in they somehow haven't gotten their point across.

Re: KC metro growth and migration stats

According to zip code data, estimates show DT saw increase of 2500 people over the past year and Midtown-Plaza saw increase of 1300 people.

Same data also shows DT and Midtown rebounding from job losses over previous years.
