Re: 1822 Main Redevlopment

That is likely the most pathetic rendering I have ever seen. Looks like a blind 3rd grader made it. If that is any indication of the quality we will see on this project, it will be bleak. And there's a good chance someone is going to fall off of that balcony. I hope it is the person who did the ren...

Re: 1822 Main Redevlopment

Ugh, 3 story office on top of 3 level parking garage podium.

I hate it and the 25 year TIF.
TIF to move from KC to KC. No new urban core jobs. No new KCMO jobs. No new regional jobs.

Re: World Cup 2026 at Arrowhead?

Really it’s only with a dedicated row light rail or commuter rail and more than 1 line to/from Truman’s Sports Complex that we could begin to move those World Cup Crowds What route would you see this line taking? You could put a light rail line down 31st or Linwood. I’m mainly saying that we would ...

Re: Parking Garage Madness, Lyric YMCA, DST, ect

If I recall, I questioned why they were demolishing that garage, and was told there was a structural problem with it because of water leakage. But then why make the replacement so fancy? I'm no parking garage expert, but it seems unusual to hire an architect, particularly a prominent architect, to ...

Re: World Cup 2026 at Arrowhead?

Group consensus is dedicated ROW rail from DT to TSC is too expensive and would not get done in time, right? You could build a center running streetcar/light rail hybrid down Linwood or 31st Street to the RI ROW over to the stadium. This ~6.2 mile line would require at least 1 new bridge and sizabl...

Re: World Cup 2026 at Arrowhead?

How the hell is Philly ranked lower than Cincy and Nashville and Orlando ranks as one of the best. Here is the full report. Pg 131 - Transit. Seems to take into account three criteria- international access, intra-city access, and intercity access on match day (20% weighted each). I'm unsure if ther...

Re: OFFICIAL - City Club Apartments (former Midwest Hotel)

I was impressed when I walked by this weekend? Maybe I'm just trained now. It’s taken them well over a month just to put the metal decking down on the small phase 1 steel structure. They haven’t even completed the decking install nor poured concrete. We are unfortunately used to the slow progress.

Re: KCMO Downtown Streetcar

It's a good thing none of you are responsible for TDD finances. ;-) Related to TDD finances. If the extension project comes in under budget, does the TDD or does the Federal government get their contribution reduced? Ex. The project ends up costing $250 million. Does the financing break down to $15...
