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

For what it's worth, Yelp says they are closed temporarily and will reopen May 1.

Re: Freshwater - Midtown

They've installed a sign on the top of the building that alerts northbound drivers to parking behind the building - at least it should help a little bit.

The one just north or Pryde's - the beige stucco building. I think it was Keith Coldsnow, no?

The former Coldsnow building has a sign up saying it will be a new dog camp (or something like that)

I've also heard that BOA will be vacating the building in August, no matter what.

Re: KC wants to be NCAA Championship destination

NCAA announced site selection for championships through 2022. KC only got one men's D1 basketball tournament - a regional in 2019, but appears to be a trend of really spreading things out more...Wichita, Tulsa and Des Moines back in the rotation on a regular basis now. The D2 football championships ...

Re: Westport's fate post-P&L

I heard second-hand that BOA is vacating the building at Broadway and Westport Rd in August (not sure if related to the development). Also, comments from the Nextdoor app said that the meeting last night brought to light concerns about traffic and parking...shocker. Area residents allegedly asked wh...

Re: World Cup 2026 at Arrowhead?

Mexico and Canada would each get 10 games, and this would be the first year after the Cup expands to 48 teams, but I agree with brewcrew's list.

Re: World Cup 2026 at Arrowhead?

If ONLY the US was involved, it's possible KC gets chosen as a first round host. With Mexico and Canada involved, only the larger US cities will be chosen.

Re: OFFICIAL - Hyatt Regency Convention Hotel

There appears to be a glass overlay on the south side, similar to the one on the north side - it definitely helps break up the monotony of the stone and windows, and I like the mirror effect from the eastern wing that juts south. Still not my favorite building, but marginally better than the previou...

Re: KC to STL Hyperloop

Realistically, is Missouri even one of the top three candidates for this? The competition is global, and there are over three dozen to choose from. I hate to say it, but with the group selecting the finalists from all over the world, what are the chances that something not-so-sexy like a Missouri ro...

Re: Rankings, lists, and such

This is the worst chart. Is this millennials living or working in the suburbs/core? Or both? And what is considered suburban - only other independent cities or just something that is X miles from the city center? Is all of KCMO considered city for this study or is the northland considered suburban?

Re: Westport's fate post-P&L

The fact that they specifically called out the XO site project as a threat to Westport should be all the evidence anyone needs that the Save Westport group is woefully misguided. I haven't heard anything about locals being against this development (although I could be wrong) - the Pulse and BOA pro...

Apparently they were done by one of Benton's students, but not Benton himself.

A couple folks on the Nextdoor app were getting worked up about the possible loss of the Thomas Hart Benson murals in the bank until someone from the Benton Home historical site said they were definitely NOT Benton murals.
