Re: KCI Flight Schedule Adjustments

Why is the flight to Toronto so late in the day though? It doesn’t arrive until 8PM which makes it irrevalant as a stopover to European destinations. We have flown AC from MCI to Europe several times. Mostly to CPH. I recall this connection not being an issue, though maybe the times have shifted. A...

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

Part of the idea as Dave says it to bring more eyes to the internal retail stalls which should, in theory, improve sales. This concept has been percolating for at least 5 years. The design of Walnut (at least as of a couple of years ago) would operate as something like a pedestrian street where cars...

I mean most of our big companies are just trash at downtown. We have a generational gap in every company here that could make an impact.
Agreed

Re: Power and Light District Official Tenant List

That's a bummer. I bought work clothes there just because it was close by and the constant sales make the prices right. It does strike me that got zero synergy from surrounding uses.

Re: P&L District: 13th & Walnut Site Proposal

I've never been for dinner only lunches weekday and weekends. Not sure most would think of BBQ on a Friday night at p&l. Those going p&l may pop in ai guess but for those not going there I'd guess most are looking for something nicer if coming downtown downtown for a weekend dinner. Really think th...

Re: City Center Square for sale

meh Check out those expanded retail terraces though. I'll take it. Also by reorienting the steps they're eliminating the ability to walk down the steps diagonally which is nice. I've seen more people fall on those few steps because almost no one walks straight down them but rather diagonal to get t...

But isn't the airport working out as planned-ish?
It probably is, I more meant that it's an issue that should be examined and would be a good reason to support, or drop support.

Renaming a road is not.
Ahh yes, my bad. Agreed!

Re: Prospect MAX

I don't like to think about a fixed-window bus plunging into a lake with freezing water and no way to lower the windows to escape. You could not escape through the operable windows, unless you're four inches wide. There are clearly marked emergency exit windows (and a hatch in the roof), in accorda...

Sounds like airlines are very close and then we just twiddle our thumbs for the FAA to finish the EA and hope there aren't a lot of restrictions within it?
That's what I heard yesterday from a reliable source.
Any faa estimates?

I've been to the Lee's Summit location several times. Foods ok, but I would rate their restaurant skills as amateurish. Kind of a mess, no attention to detail.
I detected this in the build out of the space. It sort of appeared they were doing a lot of work themselves.
