Re: North Plaza Hotel- 46th and Broadway

Yeah I noticed this turn of events as well. It sounds like the project is intending to become 100% hotel instead of having a portion of residential. The nearby condo building showed up to the PZE to oppose the change in plan scope, noting that the entire original project design had changed (a large ...

I'm not sure why people think Edgemoor has anything to do with whats going on right now. The issue/hold-up is the airlines.

Re: OFFICIAL - ARTerra (21st and Wyandotte)

What is the point of that post on the Pitch website? What is it evening communicating? Its so short and lazy that its mind boggling he has the login credentials to even post it. If he wants to whine about something why not just tweet that? All it does is take credibility from him and his publication.

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

The parking requirements are in the way of the master plan I assume since the rowhouses have their own parking. Did we not get rid of parking minimums in RM? Any help the public can bring (calls, emails, etc) to whomever....let us know. Kudos and very apprecriated. Oddly it is not the public nor ci...

Re: Misc Crossroads News

Has anyone been to the pop-up Christmas bar above Rockhill Grill? A co-worker begged me to check it out with her yesterday, so we showed up ten minutes after it opened (4pm) and there were already around 20 people in line - people who didn't make it in before the space reached capacity. At 5:00 the...

They can't even afford to keep bags in the dog poop bag dispensers. How are they gonna afford a streetcar?
The Port Authority partnered with the city to form the original TDD so they have a say in how the funds the TDD generates are spent.

Re: Five Light

I'm guessing since Copaken is involved in this tower that we can assume nothing is going to happen with their project at 13th & Grand anytime soon.

We'll have quite a few cranes up if this all goes through. Convention Hotel, 3 light, 1800 Walnut, Strata, City Club (?), Hotel Bravo (?)...

Re: Regional GDP

But it does show you how about half of our region's GDP is in KS and thus dilutes the weight we can throw around in state politics. MO side counties don't even equal StL county GDP.

So, KC metro has a higher GDP than STL? Surprising.
what phuqueue said. I was just trying to give a sense of how our regions counties stack up to the larger counties in the StL area- Not try to make a comparison between StL region and Kc region.
