Re: OFFICIAL - Embassy Suites (former Federal Reserve)

That base is definitely for a construction elevator, not a crane. The windows have been removed on all floors directly above the base they just poured. I assume we can take from this that they're not removing the planters/barricades, as well. I'd like them to take out the ones blocking the crosswal...

Re: OFFICIAL - Embassy Suites (former Federal Reserve)

Yeah, credit when credit is due - they've kept pedestrian access open. Which has actually made this area more pleasant to walk in the winter without pigeons and bird poop everywhere lol So I guess they succeeded by failing for so long. Things would be much smoother if projects could have 100% closu...

Re: Black leaders seek to rename Paseo to MLK Blvd

And yeah, let's get rid of this idea that anyone who criticizes this isn't for honoring MLK. They fell into this ass backwards and don't know how to get out. They should have come up with a plan to honor MLK and the historical KC black leaders and fundraised to do it. Instead, they did whatever this...

Re: Black leaders seek to rename Paseo to MLK Blvd

I wasn't responding to "everyone," I was responding to "can't we just give them a puzzle to distract them until this goes away?" by the dude whose only stated reason for opposition was not wanting to learn a new street name. It was a bad post. Oh settle down. I've said before that they should come ...

Re: Black leaders seek to rename Paseo to MLK Blvd

Can we buy them like a 10,000 piece jigsaw puzzle to give them something to do and just be done with this stupid thing?

Man I hope we don't lose quality airlines like spirit and alligent.
I personally think we should bill them for every second of our time they waste, but I guess that's why I don't get to run important things.

Re: We need a new airport!!!

I'll spell correct for you and say that it is easy. They were the most incompetent of the group.

They were the woefully unprepared for this project. I'd project costs higher with them already.

Key copy

Is there any place downtown that can copy a key for me?

Sorry if this is the wrong place mods, but I'd like to do it over lunch tomorrow and Google is just showing shitty locksmiths.

Re: We need a new airport!!!

I don't think people really understand what is causing these delays. Also, I'll eat my shoe if b&m would agree to a fixed cost contact at that price. It's easy to talk when you're not doing anything. I was in the aecom corner, but I don't doubt the competency of people involved, even when I disagree...

I'll post later if anyone is interested. Please do! Okay. I'll probably start posting in batches unless anything interesting comes up. I took a stupid amount of pictures today I'll sort through later. I'm shit at photography too. I'm mildly obsessed with this door though. I didn't even know it was ...

Also, kcp, get ready for your 311 calls because I give this place a zero percent chance of complying with code.

Re: Old Federal Reserve (925 Grand)

I talked to a construction worker and he told me they're doing hotel work. He didn't know which brand. This place is on heavy development. I have pictures of them going into all of the doors (the construction workers were like wtf is this interesting but graciously let me take pictures). I'll post l...

Several media people responded to my tweet about this activity, but I'm guessing the developer isn't talking to them?
