Re: Misc Crossroads News

(Almost) Anything on this site is better than the current situation, however I would hope for something more dense than a 5-7 story project. That would essentially be another City Club, Milhaus East Crossroads, Gallerie, 4400 Washington, Union at Berkely Riverfront, etc. type of project...a concret...

Re: OFFICIAL - Loews Convention Hotel (formerly Hyatt)

There is nothing wrong with the grass in front of the PAC. That's taking the KC inferiority complex to a whole new level. lol not liking a huge sprawling lawn in front of a downtown performing arts center is an 'inferiority complex?' is that how u attack people that disagree with something so objec...

Re: OFFICIAL - Loews Convention Hotel (formerly Hyatt)

Second, the view north of the lot sucks. Instead of looking over a valley towards crown center, Union Station and liberty memorial, you'd be looking at Bartle Hall's south end, its parking lot, the ballroom's front lawn, and a pretty poor angle on the skyline, of which some of the dominant features...

Re: OFFICIAL - Loews Convention Hotel (formerly Hyatt)

Coming out the north entrance of Kauffman Center the meeting/parking structure is massive. Almost like a hulking modern sibling of Municipal Auditorium. It really is too bad that Kaufman Center faces south not north. [/size] Agree and said this from the start. Would love to see those remarkable cur...

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

I remember this sign.
It was on one of the shorter buildings on Grand or Main (between 12th-13th) that was tore down for P&L.

Re: OFFICIAL - New Downtown YMCA (former Lyric Theater)

^ destroying the old structure is such a crazy waste.
They could have built state-of-the-art brand new on the corner or at the original planned site on Grand.
What a wasted opportunity :-|

Re: OFFICIAL - City Bank Building (Church of Scientology)

The sign looks pretty cool so far.

Now hoping the Mainmark Building would add one.

Re: How Kansas City got its' name

Hate to bust your bubble, but the first Kansas City, the village of Canzes, existed in modern day Doniphan, Co. Kansas, centuries before Possum Trot, Missouri was settled. So what? "Village of Canzes" can keep that name, it has nothing to do with the conversation. Dumont writes about it in his reco...

Re: How Kansas City got its' name

Being named after the river that starts (or ends?) here makes total sense. Anyway, the Kansas River was regularly used by steamboats in the 1850s & 1860s, all the way to Ft. Riley, so it had commerce traffic. No it makes no sense because the kansas river did NOT end in KC. The kansas river was a mi...

Re: How Kansas City got its' name

Every time I read ridiculous articles claiming that Kansas City was named after the ""Kansas River" I have to laugh. These writers always have a Kansas bias of some sort and constantly try to claim Kansas City for the state of Kansas. The article claims this at the start and notice they offer no pro...

The referenced building is KCPAC
If true, the PAC is nowhere near as large as Pershing Square Two.
1800 Walnut and the PAC have nothing in common.
