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.

KC CityState

Ok been thinking about this and as a quasi-outsider, this is my opinion on getting past the barriers perceived in the way. And thru a few leaks to others in place) testing this theory, no one has yet to throw up a credible barrier other than the unfortunately ubiquitous "show me" pukeage. ...

Re: Homogenization of KC

I agree with both comments. I have studied the history for a couple of years now and while the burbs are already lost to the oblivion of commodization, the genesis of the KC core is still that outpost, trading or jumping off spot into the great unknown that either pushed settlers forward or kept the...

Re: Homogenization of KC

gondolas? All ideas and thoughts are needed. KC was born and raised on logisitics . A trading post. French traders selling furs downstream and wares shipped upstream. Getting here was one thing as steamboats seemed to last about two trips before blowing up or sinking. Crossing the chasm of the great...

Homogenization of KC

This one is for you wizards...you know the concept...forget gentrification and think about homogenization of cities...Tulsa looks like KC which looks like Indy, etc. WHAT MAKES KC UNIQUE and how do we focus and protect this in the architecture, culture and vibe??? https://www.fastcompany.com/4055824...

Re: Amazon searching for second HQ

So will the region make their proposal public now? We already know a big reason why we lost: we pitched suburban sites in places like Olathe. Really? that was the pitch? correct, KC deserves to lose. Alt pitch would have been a win-win-win. on top of I-70, parking below, next to new stadium with na...

Re: Amazon searching for second HQ

bright lining here...KC needs to try harder on all aspects other than incentives. Would have spoiled it. Civic support for transit, education, life safety, arts, startups, vocational training, etc. Think bigger and goodies will follow.

Re: Buying a Condo in Downtown KC!

BTW, Epoch offers for-sale residences in the RiverMarket. We do believe the rental market is saturated and are not afraid to sell. All of our apartments were condo'd 10 yrs ago and selectively selling plus new 6 new townhomes on Wyandotte due out of the oven in 2018.
