Re: OFFICIAL: Port Authority Riverfront Project

Why is this being built in a riverfront location that can demand higher market rents when the East Village continues to languish?

Re: KCI Flight Schedule Adjustments

Iceland flights take off tomorrow. The first flight there looks really full when I did a dummy booking. The return flight in the middle of the week looked bad. Only looked like there were 10 seats sold. It could be more or less since seat maps are not always accurate Doesn't the lowest price for th...

Re: Martini Corner near 31st/Gilham

Speaking of Martini Corner, wonder why the old berbiglia and other building continue to just sit vacant, the owners must want to much? I think the building at SW corner of 31st/Gilham has been vacant since 2007, i think it was used briefly as an Obama or Claire McCaskill election station. Could be ...

Re: Muehlebach Hotel / KC Club Project

It was just a rudimentary calculation whith no time to sit and do all of the math. No need to be a dick about it but thanks for figuring it out to the last 70 cents.

Re: Bike Lanes

Armour bike lanes are being installed starting today. If you haven't been on this stretch lately, the lane striping appears to be finished - parking 'bubbles' have been striped and bike lanes on each lane better parking and curbs. Between this and the work MAC did on the apartments, these few block...

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

I heard a rumor that the Farmhouse was leaving the current location and 'moving south.' When I asked if that meant south as in down the street, to the Crossroads or to Johnson county? The person said that's all they knew, other than they decided they couldn't afford the increase in rent. Anyone else...

Crown Center wouldn't build a large hotel when they struggle to fill the ~1,400 rooms it has during non-convention or event periods.

Re: favorite under-the-radar mexican places in the kansas city area?

I don't find much downtown that is better than average. However Los Alamos on Summit has great food, especially breakfast. It's a little rough around the edges, but the red (spicy) and green (mild) pork is amazing. On the Blvd, the only place that stands out is El Patron, but if you want margaritas ...

I don't want to go too off topic, but I'd love to get inside the Hyatt and see what they have planned. They need to be downtown, yeah? Maybe we should start a separate Hyatt thread. They need a developer to step up. I agree we should start a speculation thread. Is The Hilton President the only Hilt...

Has anyone been in the Embassy Suites on the Plaza recently? Wondering what kind of shape it is in - the last I heard it was in pretty bad shape, but that was years ago. Hilton seems to be eager to keep a presence in the area and wondering if they'll keep two Embassy Suites in such close proximity w...

Re: Phase 2 streetcar to UMKC

Where does the boundary to Westport end on the north side? I always thought Westport ended on the south side of 39th, with Valentine beginning on the north side...which is the side Mr. Nigro's law firm is on. Interestingly enough, his law firm is roughly the same distance (.3 miles) from the interse...
