Re: UMKC Conservatory of Music considers move to downtown

Pretty sure it's the other way around, the patrons of the Kauffman don't want to lose their views.

Re: Amenities missing from downtown

With the streetcar and bus what difference does 12th vs 18th really make? The current closest target is ~15 minutes from downtown so a department store placed anywhere downtown will be in the sphere of influence of all of downtown equally. Consentino's is on 13th and people from the River Market an...

Re: Buying a Condo in Downtown KC!

I also think the general thought is that some portion of these apartments may eventually go condo (hopefully when you retire!).

He posts on other development sites. One even had a user photo.

Re: We need a new airport!!!

Sounds like they either skipped or rushed the committee process and went straight to the full council.

Agree that most of this is posturing.

Re: We need a new airport!!!

You'd think we could look to other cities MOUs to see if this one was somehow inadequate.

I have a hard time believing that James, Justus, et al, would allow themselves to be put in a position to have this blow up in their faces.

Re: Downtown Overland Park

I'm all for it, though I'm sure there will be growing pains. The home values adjacent will skyrocket. Wish I had bought there way back when.

Re: Downtown Overland Park

We drove by this area yesterday to try and locate exactly where it was. Odd spot we had never been, south of the market and just east of the pavilion where they have festivals. Is the church empty? If so, this would be quite a dead zone most of the time. The adjacent residential seems out of place w...
