Re: New Convention Hotel

Personally, I think a taller, skinnier building would be less obstructive than a shorter, wider one. I liked the original design much better. I hate the idea that, after 25 years of trying to land a state of the art convention center hotel, this this the best "cost cutting " design that th...

Re: What "hole" would you fill downtown?

One of my biggest personal eyesores would be imploded and redeveloped. That would be former KC Public Library / KC School District, which borders 12th, McGee, 13th, and Oak Streets. sorry, but it will be renovated. Good news. While I don't like the building or it's design so much, it's still a very...

Re: On-going downtown development projects

I would be fine if they demolished the old library building at 1301 McGee and put a mixed use development there. There's more than enough room to put up a 35-45 story hotel / condo with a parking garage and more retail /eateries at ground level!! :twisted: 1301 McGee? Which building are you talking...

Re: Truman's Marketplace

So what the hell is going on with Truman's Marketplace??? Still nothing going on.... This was supposed to be completed in 2015...Yet, what businesses are left are still open. Nothing has been started. Is this what I should come to expect with Grandview?

I was feeling the same way, but very happy they're choosing a site that has been depressed for years. I hope they use every bit of space available. I can't wait to see diagrams!!

Re: 2013 downtown housing report

The Board of Education Building might go residential at some point, and the former library space could be retail or commercial. I know the City looked at that building at one point, but I don't think they were interested. The old library space probably needs to be completely gutted. . I've been in ...

Re: The Citadel Plaza project at E. 63rd & Prospect

Actually, there's already an Aldi over off of Troost and Meyer Blvd, across from The Landing. Maybe Walmart can put in a Neighborhood Market. A Hyvee wouldn't be a bad idea, either

Re: Trumans-Marketplace Update

Having grown up in Grandview back in the 70s and 80s, and watching its slow decline, it's great to see new life coming to a shopping area that's been an eyesore for years. Sam's Club will be vacating soon, the current empty storefronts will never attract anything significant. Time to tear it down an...

Re: Fed will sell headquarters to Townsend

It seems a little out of place for a hotel.  I think they should stick with lofts IMO.
