Re: Fixing p&l traffic backups

I mean let's talk about the elephant in the room too. Cordish got a sweetheart development deal way back when and things haven't always been lovely between downtown and cordish. I think they have the reputation for thinking they can do whatever they want to and people should just be happy they're ar...

Re: Fixing p&l traffic backups

The problem isn't really cordish, but the city being actively awful at enforcing codes. I don't blame developers for taking the cheapest way out.

I've complained for a year about the old federal reserve being a rat and pigeon infested shit hole. Nothing ever happens.

Re: Fixing p&l traffic backups

Are short-term street closures in P&L being pushed to map data providers? If not, that would be very good first step. They happen so often, I'm not sure. The district did just partner with Uber which is nice because they'll be directed to specific drop off/pick up points. This is good to hear. ...

Re: Fixing p&l traffic backups

Went back through twitter posts of the district...not one detailed parking direction or streetcar utilization tip since December 1....no matter, having that static site updated with better directions including "hey, dorks, take streetcar here" can't hurt, right? It's an easy fix, but like...

Re: Downtown Delivery

ClusterTruck is now officially open downtown, a sort of food truck delivery hybrid that has an onprem kitchen. A delivery only kitchen I suppose. Sounds like you have to meet driver at curb, not delivered at your door. Based out of Indy, expanded to OH, KC and Denver... https://cityscenekc.com/clus...

Re: Three Light

Wait, why is H&R even involved? Did they have another option on this? Surely they don't need more room? What an I missing? This is the location of what was originally considered H&R Block Phase II..correct? H&R intended to build another high rise for their own use in this spot, which st...

5. Remind the bus drivers that people get on the bus dressed for the weather, so maybe running the heater a 95 degrees anytime the outdoor temperature is below 75 isn’t the most comfortable rider experience.


yessss. And most of us have been walking and are already at comfortable temperature.

Re: We need a new airport!!!

I agree with everything fang said and someone please bring it up at the design meetings. For an example of why a connected hotel is so great, I have a stupidly bad flight coming up in a different city. I get in at noon, have a few meetings, and fly out at 530am the next day. Shuttles are stressful a...

I know I'm in the minority, but I actually like this area. I hope something better can go in than bk. Count me in on the need for "food to walk with" group. Also a 24/7 place, even with average food.

Re: We need a new airport!!!

BRT makes far more sense than rail right now. I'm picturing something kind of Barcelona style to start with which I've always found really easy and enjoyable. Limited stops and all feeding into the streetcar. Nothing wrong with charging more if it's nice and reliable. I'd brand it separately than th...

USO and ..... None of the legacy carriers has a large enough presence here to bother with operating a lounge of their own, so I'd bet on it being "The Club at MCI" (Priority Pass, etc.), with an outside chance of it being an Amex Centurion lounge instead. USO Plus 2 airline clubs This is ...
