Re: Westport

Yeah McCoy's supposed to close I believe end of the month. I wonder if Beer Kitchen and Char Bar are affected since they're all owned by the same group? Who knows, maybe someone bought the lots and is planning a mixed use tower on the spot LOL

Re: Plaza move-ins (ongoing)

Per CityScape column, Elly's brunch cafe closed in 4800 Main building (former Board of Trade). Bummer, I liked it reasonably well and the more brunch spots (and retail off plaza) the merrier. Too bad. Article also notes that the Eat Fit Go location there closed as well, but was part of a corporate ...

On a side note, Noodles & Co has closed (or is in the process of closing) and the building where Tomfooleries is located has been sold and Byron is prepping for a going-out-of-business sale.

Re: OFFICIAL - New Downtown YMCA (former Lyric Theater)

$35 million just seems like a LOT of money - I would've liked to see this built on one of the many surface lots or East Village, with UMKC taking over the Lyric building, but there appear to have been forces against all of that. It was a lot of money 20 years ago. And how much do you think it would...

Re: Plaza move-ins (ongoing)

I love the development from the St Luke's Foundation, and the homes look great for all being the same layout. Not really seeing how those are two-car garages, but they mirror many of the single-family homes in West Plaza. But starting prices of $500K!?!?!?!

Re: Amazon searching for second HQ

And Wal-mart several years ago turned into a giant consignment shop - most vendors don't get paid until their product sells. It was a huge hit to vendors who had to move product back onto their books, but a boon to Wal-mart.

Re: Plaza move-ins (ongoing)

So in 2001 a 20-year TIF was established (in part) to build, maintain and/or subsidize this garage. Now we're going to tear part of it down and replace it with a low-rise department store that will likely have dedicated spaces for it's shoppers, and probably other dedicated parking if Seville become...

I really like the little courtyard between the two 5-story buildings on McGee - hope the idea is to incorporate that in with the retail buildings.

Re: Liberty Memorial Musuem and Penn Valley Park

It sure was nice to have tons of people in the park last night. Seems like a permanent video display could really add something to the site. Could also be cool to get union station's 100th anniversary animation permanently installed. Since it's already animated, they'd just have to install the lamp...

KSHB reporting the cost of the terminal is increasing to $1.9 billion. Anyone know why? Now's the time when everyone complains about the increased cost and Edgemoor scales back the terminal to be just a big blank box with no frills. $1.9 billion is insane - it's not like we're getting new runways o...

And those 900 jobs could eventually turn into 2,000 jobs, so it is a big loss.
And those 900 jobs could turn into hundreds of new residents downtown and employees paying the earnings tax (assuming no subsidies) and supporting local businesses in the area. It is a big loss.
