Is this related to the work already stared on the west side of the building?

That does not look like a boat.
Article says it's an enclosed, lightweight cladding system that would fit over the boat and listed as one of several possible renovation ideas.

Re: East Side Development

The first thought is: why do you shop somewhere that you think the prices are high and has a poor selection, shitty quality of meat and prepared food, dirty stores, and rude employees? I do go elsewhere to shop, but if I need something in a pinch I'll go to SunFresh - two blocks versus a 20-30 minu...

Re: East Side Development

$375K to 'keep the grocery store going' on top of whatever other incentives the store received to open. And on a local newscast the other night, neighbors complained about how they don't shop there because of high prices and crime. A former co-worker of mine was interviewed on the news segment (she'...

Re: The Future of Crown Center

The only coffee-centric spot is in the 2460 building across the street, past the fountains/plaza and hidden in one of the stepped office buildings. Panera, Sheridan's and Einstein all sell some types of coffee drinks, but you have to go to the Starbuck's outpost in the Westin to get anything other t...

Re: World Cup 2026 at Arrowhead?

If the TSC is going to be the home of the Royals and Chiefs, why not a mixed use village? There is an abundance of land and parking that could support some restaurants, entertainment, hotels and apartments. Where is the nearest cinema - 10 miles? And only a couple of decent hotels for miles.

Re: NHL OR NBA, let the message board decide!!

This city and local media do a poor job of promoting any minor league sports. What about the basketball team? Arena football? The Comets? And while most cities would kill for a USL team, we have the Swope Park Rangers and there is zero advertising for them.

Was the lunch crowd on W 39th ever dependent on KU Med? I've heard KU med built this amazing Cafeteria inside KU med so a lot of the KU Med business is drying up, i believe it was a big reason why Topp'd Pizza closed up Not sure, but I could see it affecting Topp'd - the Subway next door now closes...

Re: wtf is happening to w. 39th?!

The Meatball District, most recently just 'The District' has been sold and changed over to Vera Marie's Comfort Food. Someone from the neighborhood FB group said no alcohol is being sold (owner says her Christian values won't permit it) and prices are high ($7 smoothies, $12 burgers) for what you get.
