Re: Kc skyscraper drought about to max depression era droughttt.

How is St. Louis getting a 10-12 story office building as part of Ballpark Village when the AT&T tower is basically empty? Copaken needs to shit or get out of the development business. Doesn't help that the Kemper family does nothing for downtown either except hold onto empty parking lots. Kemp...

Re: Kc skyscraper drought about to max depression era droughttt.

Oh come on. You are just being argumentative. You know as well as I do that there have been millions of sq ft of office space built in metro KC (outside the urban core) in the past ten years and in that same time period, very little has been added downtown. Downtown probably has had a net loss. I d...

Re: Kc skyscraper drought about to max depression era droughttt.

The market report I'm looking at doesn't show that much office construction anywhere. 30k in eastern Jack and 250k in South Joco...that it.

Re: Kc skyscraper drought about to max depression era droughttt.

I don't think the proximity to jobs is as important to renters who choose to be downtown ....most people still sadly drive in KC anyways and we have on traffic so the time savings they capture in other metros isn't as big of an advantage here....people are picking to live downtown because of the env...

Re: Kc skyscraper drought about to max depression era droughttt.

The office reports reflect that optimism. Vacancy rates going down downtown and rent rates going up....still under average so still can be played as a value

Re: Kc skyscraper drought about to max depression era droughttt.

I'm more encouraged than ever that jobs will come back....maybe not in big beautiful skyscraper form we are talking about here but jobs are already coming back downtown and it's just started.

Re: Kc skyscraper drought about to max depression era droughttt.

Rooftops first we were always told then the retail and offices come back...so we focused on residents...now we are being told offices first or the rooftops leave? I'm confused.

Re: Kc skyscraper drought about to max depression era droughttt.

Measuring against what every other city is doing will never end well. We need to grow our economy with diverse industries and keep up with demands of people wanting to move here with amenities and affordable housing options....looking over our shoulder at what Nashville is doing isnt going to do muc...

One new one might be nice but I'm more excited seeing a bunch of filler buildings getting rid of surface lots.

Re: Sidewalk snow removal/enforcement

48 hours after storm is over they will respond to 311....and ask the property owner to treat.....they never write tickets.

The best way to to get action is to publicly shame the company on social media....or contact them privately and ask. Both seem to work.
