Re: Status and future of the River Market area??

It would be nice to keep the museum downtown, but it's quite expensive.

My understanding is that they've been asking for significant incentives to go anywhere. I'd be more interested in the City taking it over as a public museum with private help. I don't think they're interested in that though.

Re: Power and Light District Official Tenant List

It's definitely another amenity gone. Now it's send people to Halls or the plaza.

Re: P&L District: 13th & Walnut Site Proposal

I mean most of our big companies are just trash at downtown. We have a generational gap in every company here that could make an impact.

Re: P&L District: 13th & Walnut Site Proposal

I know a lot of people that go downtown for events and they'll drive to some place for dinner and then drive from there to the event.

The best thing Kansas City can do for street life is to continue to invest in density, not events.

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

You don't understand the distinctions of the various districts within downtown and their historical names. The CBD has historically referred to the financial and retail epicenter of downtown along B altimore, Main, Walnut , and Grand . The local, state and fed Govts developed their buildings to the...

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

For example, if anyone was working at je Dunn id describe that to them as the government district. The proposed tower on grand I'd call the financial district and not power and light. This tower I'd say power and light. Sorry for saying CBD. I don't even know what that means. I guess I always used i...

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

Agree. It would be a "want" for sure. Hopefully these few new construction office buildings actually happen and happen quickly and they lead to more activity. Downtown KC has recently lost over 3 million sq ft of office space to re-purposing for other uses so hopefully new space will start to snowb...

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

The fuck are you guys even talking about. East village development is very different than CBD development. The East Village is inside the CBD........ Yeah, I always mess up the terms. Financial district, whatever. The point remains - they're different neighborhoods with different developments goals.

Re: We need a new airport!!!

When I sad I was okay with short term financing I wasn't responding just to outside loans. I've said somewhere before I'd like to see the difference in cost between interfund and outside borrowing to see what that difference is. Is optics worth a million? Not to me but I'm not the crazy people scre...

Re: We need a new airport!!!

15% design would worry me a bit too. They've already designed cheap and now they have to design towards even cheaper while protecting their profit. And we're looking at blowing $1 million in short term interest costs just for PR reasons. It may not require a 15% cut to the design. The current risk ...

I don't have a problem with the short term financing.
Why would we pay interest when we can just loan to ourselves?

It's amazing how much dumb shit we're doing with this airport based off what random people apparently perceive. I can't think of anyone that's impressed me in this process.

Apparently for lower than what we've heard. So don't expect any improvements to the design.
