Re: Westport

Interesting location. I cant remember that building being anything other than St.Lukes stuff since Ive came to Westport. Building looks huge like a club spot. https://www.bizjournals.com/kansascity/news/2019/04/01/gould-evans-new-westport-heaquarters.html#g/451958/3 Gould Evans in at 4200 Pennsylva...

Re: Westport

Totally agree. I'll go see some of Californos shows. But if I am in Westport late at night on a weekend, it is probably by a cruel act of fate.

Re: Westport

I'm thinking of Soulard in STL. Plenty of residential that is integrated all throughout the district through diverse housing types.

Re: Westport

I could definitely see it operating as a daytime spot in the future. There are already a good amount of daytime people in the neighborhood, as I witness every day.. But OPUS will bring more residents, and Manor Square will have an office of 200 new employees when SHS moves in (and could have more re...

Re: Westport

I think it is interesting how often people talk about Westport this way. I have lived in KC for 7 years and almost never go to WP at night - though I have been coming here during the day for years. I see it as a thriving daytime district. Maybe I am an optimist?

Re: Westport Terrace at Manor Square

I spoke with the developer not more than 2 weeks ago and they were still pursuing this project at that time.

Re: Plaza move-ins (ongoing)

I totally agree. If *most* Americans cared about design, our cities wouldn't look the way they do. It at least isn't at the top of everyone's priority list.

Re: Plaza move-ins (ongoing)

[/quote] Why are only old, ornamental buildings worth saving? Isn't this the very cause of the problem this idea is meant to stop? Parts of 135th st have more ornamentation than Town Pavillion does. One of the most unique buildings in the region is on that corridor. It shows why ornamentation repres...

Re: Plaza move-ins (ongoing)

[/quote] You both have missed the point. It’s not the buildings that people care about, it’s the functionality of the buildings. The Sprint Center has nearly no ornamentation on it. Would it serve it’s purpose better if it wasn’t all glass? If someone said they were going to build 500 stories worth ...

Re: Westport

I could also imagine that the restaurant industry/entertainment is becoming more competitive in KC. There are SO many restaurants and cool districts... DWNTWN, the bottoms, Crossroads, NKC, E39, even Brookside/Waldo/East Brookside, etc etc are all becoming more popular destinations. I almost never ...

Re: Westport

I hope this isn't caused by the problems the beer industry is having right now. There are so many small breweries right now, even large brew companies are getting hit hard. Many have already started investing in new concepts that don't include beer. Look out for those announcements as I am sure they...

Re: Westport

I got the joke and laughed. I’m old enough to get sarcasm. Jeez, I misread. People aren't very kind on this forum are they. It was just a gentle joke back. I’ve found younger people today have a hard time with sarcasm. They take it as literal. Old people like me seem to appreciate and understand a ...
