Re: Charlotte St. Foundation to Build New Bldg. in Midtown

The fact that they have been so successful with almost zero physical presence up until now makes me think that location moving forward doesn't really matter.

I'd much rather see dollars go to art than to prime real estate.

Re: Keystone Innovation District

Isolated, island development doesn't work is one lesson. Totally agree and I've said that a million times. But this has some distinctions. 1) The city has poured and continues to pour millions into 18th & Vine, why waste it? 2) The ATA owns much of the land and has committed to changing 18th street...

They are gaming the system, that's why "mixed use" is always in air quotes.

Re: Keystone Innovation District

IMO if this project and district has success this could be the biggest thing since the Crossroads' success. Troost has become a fantastic trophy for the city but this is really where the rubber hits the road. Establishing 18th Street as a successful residential, mixed use and cultural epicenter wit...

Re: GO CHIEFS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Seems like the NFL was figuring out the offense the second half of the season. It seems perfectly reasonable that someone like Belichick could come up with a plan to bollox up Mahomes for a half, particularly since they had very little time to adjust as their defense could not get off the field. TOP...

Re: GO CHIEFS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

A lot of things, but not a choke. It's fairly obvious NE is a better all around team.

That said, Bob Sutton needs to go, the lack of creativity on defense isn't sustainable. We'll end up wasting Mahomes.

True, but the shutdown is just a cover to shrink government permanently anyway.
