Re: Three Light

They should have stuck with that design. Claiming it's full doesn't mean squat about residents liking the exterior design. They like the location and the amenities. Do you live here and talk to fellow residents like I do? Because I've never encountered a resident who didn't like the exterior of the...

Re: Ambassador Hotel (1111 Grand)

Great news. I've been impressed with the Ambassador renovation since it opened. Glad to hear they're doing well enough to expand on that scale. Would love it if they could get a marquee restaurant tenant in there to take advantage of that beautiful lobby/bar space but unlikely under Marriott. Is th...

Re: Ambassador Hotel (1111 Grand)

I think the hotel uses that lot for guests. Will the new structure include parking?

We just did a reconnaissance mission to check out viewing options. Went out to Arrow Rock, then back toward town on 24 mostly. Marshall and Waverly seem to have lots of options space wise.

Re: Phase 2 streetcar to UMKC

The parts of the city don't have to change, the election dynamics did. With the state efforts the minimum wage item has less pull than it did before. So that decreases the east side and northland draw of infrequent voters. Or maybe not, pro higher minimum wage voters tend to be transit dependent an...

Re: Phase 2 streetcar to UMKC

Your guys talk is all fine and good, but every single metro wide election (save one), has failed miserably. How do you propose to change the dynamic? There's a reason we're doing TDD. This city is changing. Just because something didn't pass several years ago doesn't mean the result will be the sam...

They absolutely want you to feel that way, it is their goal. Resist the urge.

2 moving parts.

They have another 10 days for more signatures.

The council will likely pass the accelerated measure, but I bet that gets challenged in court.
