Re: 2018 Downtown Reports

Frustrating for those wanting to stay and invest in downtown that we can't get more condos going...those 6 are the delaware landing project which has been delayed but as the developer posted on here, still in the cards. Condo liability is still real for developers unlike other states that limit cla...

Re: What route makes the most sense for a beginning Light Rail line in KC?

commuter rail going forward makes the most sense - not only from the tired "density" excuse but also satellite towns that can become farm clubs for KC labor force, etc. Even Denver's light rail has too many stops in its framework and it IS 2x the density. Commuter rail to DIA is workable, albeit I w...

Re: Capping the Loop

Was told first step was swapping 670 and 70 signs as it is easier to rid a 3 numbered interstate than 2. then buried parking for north loop (ballpark) stop, then ballpark (amazon or other field) then parks and bldgs above. remember the city will get this land back so payback is property taxes and sa...

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

Boy we are tired of hearing this ongoing circulating non truth. From the horse's mouth: they are very happy staying and both the Farmhouse and Landlord are working to make the opportunity even better. And BTW, there is no increase in rent.

Re: All may not be lost in Parking Garages - Look to Wichita for inspiration

All good. I know the ICT product intimately as my father owned it until passing. But the lessson learned is valuable yet i still see KC civic leaders not quite grasping the rapidly evolving dynamics of transportation and it is a killer as a developer.

Re: KC CityState

Great comments. Odd that a departure requires a vote. Hardly a coup. So thinking smaller, I wonder why rural depopulating counties don't merge. Same argument on representation and turf wars I guess. change is a constant though

Re: KC CityState

Of course they dont want it to happen. its the golden goose. but can they prevent it? Totally out of my legal league here. is it a vote? is it a coup? is it a midnight move out? See California's efforts.
