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.

Re: Our Daily Nada (304 Delaware- RM)

Looks great! That was one thing I always thought Kansas City needed, prosperos is great, but I always want a coffee when I'm in there. Luckily nomads is next door now. I'd also like to see the kc library team up with places coffee shops like the Nelson did with quay. I think it would bring a lot of...

Re: Phase Three Streetcar Expansion

KC is 1/2-1/3 the density needed for comprehensive light rail
commuter rail to outliers including KCI makes sense though with hidden agenda of bringing skilled labor/brainpower into KC
Long term however KC will need 1-2 E-W corridors like 12th or 18th or 31st or not.

Re: Misc Crossroads News

I agree. I see almost no good reason to ever tear down vintage treasures. Have always thought that the whine about parking is the wrong whine...it should be " I cant find enough cool places to live so i can WALK to work".

Re: Would you like to see the Royals move to a downtown stadium?

Partially true. I guess by development I meant walkable amenity/F&B thingys not glass towers across and servicing the convention center. And am aware of the new streetcar line - if used. The consideration for a stadium is well documented by ULI and others but still some magic in that selection. ...

Re: Would you like to see the Royals move to a downtown stadium?

And no, plopping down a stadium, or any placemaking effort, should not be taken lightly. It takes an understanding of what is, what can be, and what makes it so. Look at Minute Maid stadium in lovely houston. Nada for redevelopment b/c it was not in an area that was, could be and nothing can make it...

Re: Would you like to see the Royals move to a downtown stadium?

twist on this time could be two converging prospects....the ULI-endorsed evacuation of I-70 and Amazon HQ2. removing the hwy allows for parking and bus ingress for a stadium above/adjacent on the lovely concrete mass just south of I-70. And giving Amazon naming rights is unlike any other city's prop...

It does impact density....negatively. We want variety in all ways. Singles, families, empty nesters, professionals, creatives, etc. the demand we have here started with young families. Glad to see that in the RM. And we are not your typical "developers". I do not abide by "highest and...
