Re: Next Mayor 2019

I'd say Justus will win. Sly will endorse her and that will put her over the top. Simple as that, name recognition and Sly is widely known and liked.

I think she is not a bad choice, she seems to know how government operates, politically moderate and someone who can get things done.

Re: Westport Terrace at Manor Square

On a related note, Manor Square scored a recent big tenant with Sullivan Higdon & Sink who moved in back in November 2018. They noted that this renovation was part and parcel to the overall Westport Terrace project. https://westportkcmo.com/westport-kansascity-news/westport-looks-forward-welcoming-s...

Sad if true. Seems likely, no movement in awhile on this ambitious proposal.

Re: PortKC launches new inland port development

This project continues to move forward. Nossman will be providing legal advisory services to PKC as they pursue a P3 delivery. RFPs for commercial and financial advising went out earlier this month.

Re: Next Mayor 2019

Development and affordable housing - Lucas seems very passionate about this. I appreciate that. However, I do not agree with some of his proposals, such as a 15% affordable unit minimum that will greatly stymie new development. Justice seems more pro smart-development to me. Don't really care about ...

Re: OFFICIAL - Strata (H&R Block's 2nd Tower)

erner building a new and tallest signature tower at 12th & Grand would be the single best thing that could happen to KCMO's downtown and business future. Agreed and I wish they would but I dont think it will happen in the even longer term. They just put $35m into a new expansion in NKC and are work...

I have been to the Snooze in Tempe Arizona near ASU campus and it was really good and crowded with a wait. Pretty unique items and lots of selection. It's also a solid idea to be open until 2:30 am.

Re: Downtown Mission/ The Gateway

I suppose "Greenfield" would not be the right term. I was more thinking non-adaptive reuse, where no "brownfield," or historic structure causing extenuating circumstances requiring subsidies. I almost feel like in some of these scenarios Dev's are just adding apartments that the market is not demand...

Re: Downtown Mission/ The Gateway

I was thinking would these kind of projects slowly eat away at the Apartments in the Urban Core? A walkable mixed use place 10 minutes from major employment centers (Cerner, St Lukes, KU Med) is going to look awfully attractive to a young professional. They don't have to worry about paying a 1% tax...

I love Kauffman. It is one of the best ballparks in the MLB, and I have visited many others.

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

I'd put it in the West Bottoms close to Hy Vee Arena, with one side of the stadium in Kansas and the other in Missouri (hello bi-state tax). Parking space can be found/already exists and can be purchased or borrowed from Hy Vee Arena with the possibility of a streetcar spur over time. Offices can b...

It is really positive they were able to acquire these parcels. The building in question is architecturally interesting, if a bit grimy and worn down. Would be interested to see what the status of the interior is.

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

Keep it where it is at please. I know that neighborhood sucks, but what additional bars, restaurants, and new hotels on all the parking seas around the complex in addition to some renovations? $800m for a new stadium is not a wise use of money imo.
