Re: We need a new airport!!!

I've relaxed my opinion after my initial online outrage phase. I think it was a poor presentation that lacked focus. I hope they can clear up their design goals and come back next time with something that defines better what they want that isn't so airline focused. I guess I got too much of an airli...

Re: We need a new airport!!!

I think you underestimate how much complaining there is about bathrooms. They highlighted the things they heard most about (close walk, bathrooms). But that's because kci is trash. The bathrooms are fine, but they're all before security. It was always a given that this would be fixed. I don't know....

Re: We need a new airport!!!

I think that they could have avoided this pushback by stating a coherent image of what they want the airport to be. Instead it came across as, "ran out of money, sorry". I just find it really weird to highlight toilets. Maybe they overindexed on what they heard from people about kci and lost sight o...

Re: We need a new airport!!!

What’s wrong with an airport with a flat roof and no fountain? Does the shape of the roof have anything to do with how well it moves people around? Do you think most people are upset that costs are being kept under control by taking out a feature that is nice but provides no utility in exchange for...

Re: We need a new airport!!!

I don't get why everyone keeps saying renderings are just for "this". They show a flat roof with wooden paneling and no fountain.

If any of that is wrong, I'll take back my criticism.

I'm quite sure we have decided on a chair design 51 months from opening.
I know, but like why release these renderings? I don't buy the "renderings are supposed to show..." excuse. These show nothing.

They're supposed to give an idea of what you're designing, and these look shit.

Re: We need a new airport!!!

also, wtf is everything paneled in wood? These honestly look terrible. You will not get a good idea on how it will the walls or floors or counters will look based on a rendering. Rendering are meant to show off the layout and what type of materials will be used in abstract. The computer can’t know ...

Looks pretty boring. I'm guessing they're stripping all the fun because the airlines want more gates and least money.

Re: Bird Scooters Have Landed

Jesus. You make one suggestion that a few blocks of Of one street might be too dangerous for them (the same few blocks that have signs cautioning cyclists, mind you), and suddenly you are some sort of murderous pro-car nut job. I tried this a few pages back and was told similar. I'll stand in solid...

Re: Drury Plaza Hotel

The entire project needs to be rethought. Sorry Drury.

You could easily do mixed use, affordable housing, and hotel here, right? If we're talking incentives?

I bet you could get a majority here for taking it down with any resemblance of a thought out project. As it is, why even bother?

Re: Drury Plaza Hotel

There's nothing good about this development. It's just reused highway offramp repurposed as downtown development to try to grab cheap public money. Next to the Sprint center.

No thanks, go away

Re: Bird Scooters Have Landed

I ride them almost exclusively on Grand. Assholes will be assholes. I actually struggle with etiquette. I don't want to drive on sidewalks, but i also don't feel safe driving on the side of the road, especially around intersections. In the very rare situation where I'm around a busy street, I drive ...

Re: Plaza move-ins (ongoing)

I'd like the plaza to embrace more of it's name. I'd love to take the streetcar there and have lunch and walk around and eat outside. They should turn the middle into a pedestrian park and have outdoor seating and pop up carts selling stuff. Don't get me wrong here, but they could even look to Spain...

Re: Bird Scooters Have Landed

Do they lock even if checked out? I unlocked one but took some time... Like 10 seconds to start moving it... Then when I did the alarm went off. I ended up having to end my ride and checking it out again. I want my 1.15 back! Lol Sometimes on the app they ask you for things? Did you check that? If ...

Re: Plaza move-ins (ongoing)

I mean it is kind of funny how much a drugstore is talked about. Nothing wrong with gently mocking people, as you do all the time. The plaza is just weird. Single owner, height restrictions, historical significance, and so on. It's not the way I would ever run a neighborhood, but I don't live there....
