Re: Proposed tower on Plaza

Regardless of ACTUAL historical nature of the church, don't the landowners need to either consent or object to a third party's petition for historic status? At least w/ regard to the National Register, the committee is not allowed to designate over the owner's protests. Does this type of limitation ...

Re: Westport

The interesting thing about the potential residential saturation, as opposed to restaurant/micro-brew saturation, is that it's important and high-dollar enough to cause (or at least elicit) investment in jobs/headquarters in order to keep the residential developments from completely going under.

City Barrel Brewing is supposed to be a full-service brew pub too. I think that's slated to open this month.

Re: Are downtown apartment occupancy rapidly trending down?

https://cityscenekc.com/downtown-dazzle-urban-homes-tour-this-saturday/ With the lack of downtown jobs (especially tech type jobs that appeal to younger people) you have to think downtown is reaching that saturation point of those willing to pay more to live downtown AND commute to suburban jobs.

Re: KCTV5 tower.

We need better icons. No doubt, but it takes generations to create a true icon. This is what we have, a deep second to Plaza lights, Bartle towers, Liberty Memorial, etc. It is worth keeping and upgrading. I find nothing iconic or interesting about it. It's an eye-sore and takes up a ton of space i...

East Westport is about to transform all the way to Main St.
Agreed. It'll be so fun to watch the progress over the next few years and hopefully that Anti-Streetcar coalition will eat its damn words.

Re: 1800 Walnut

I think there's probably something to be said about the complexity of incentives on the 1800 Walnut vs. the Cordish developments. Also, that there doesn't appear to be any overarching master development agreement (other than for the site itself) or other city/political entanglements that need to be ...

Re: Plaza move-ins (ongoing)

I wonder if they got this wrong and meant there is a 13 story office tower being built behind this church? I've read or heard rumblings that this Church is going to sell to a developer, so rumors about a office tower there could be accurate. I wish there were some buildings--like this--that were ju...

Re: Parlor - 1707 Locust

It's a unique product for downtown to have. If it fails, would think due to high prices rather than the food/vibe of place. Liked the outdoor deck most. KC Pils was $3 special of day when I was there, so there's that. Did the Scandinavian sausages with thin potatoes slices - good but overpriced. Gi...

Has the City ever taken any steps to implement Better Block proposals on a permanent basis? Or is the whole purpose to "get people talking" about how road diets wouldn't completely collapse Kansas City's drive-scape?

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.
