Re: Phase 2 streetcar to UMKC

Wonderful, you have thoroughly investigated the use case scenario for a Filling Station employee or immediate neighbor. Now what about residents near 26th and Charlotte? 27th looks much more attractive than 31st or Linwood. What about the MAJOR draw of Liberty Memorial, WWI museum, and the surroundi...

Re: Phase 2 streetcar to UMKC

27th would be great for Liberty Memorial/WWI Museum and Longfellow. Not to mention all of the under-construction, proposed, and potential development along 27th street which could fill out and completely change that area from what it is today. I'd take 31st over Linwood since Linwood feels more like...

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

OMG, some tangible work is being done on this project. Missouri Gas Energy is right now digging up the sidewalk to abandon gas service.

Re: What other cities are doing about affordable housing

serious question, why not housing vouchers for lower income housing instead of subsidies to the developers? we don't charge less for groceries for individuals with low to no income. it is subsidized by food stamps or snap if you apply and qualify. this allows qualifying individuals or families to li...

Re: The Gallerie - 27th & Gillham Apartments and Condos

Not that much better. I hear you, but as a downtown worker I feel like I can still pretty easily live a carless life at 27th/McGee. Currently a little more difficult at 27th/Campbell though that is definitely changing fast. Imagine if the city made 27th attractive through that corridor instead of a...

Re: The Gallerie - 27th & Gillham Apartments and Condos

They seem to be nicer than the 27th & Campbell ones but maybe not as high-end as the ones they build near 63rd & Oak (which are $500k or more)

2 BRs are 1474 sf (plus 2 car garage)
3 BRs are 1621 and 1633 sf (plus 2 car garage)
So around $250 per finished sq foot

H&R Tower Two.


I thought that site was considered "Five" Light and "Six" was an undisclosed location.
So, no office component, then?

Re: The Gallerie - 27th & Gillham Apartments and Condos

These are unofficial numbers, but when speaking with the developers I believe they told me around $360-370k for 2 BR and $410-420K for 3 BR

Re: UMKC projects

I found these images of the $32 million Flarsheim Hall expansion project on the PGAV Architects website. This will be on the SW corner of 51st and Rockhill Rd. This was announced in December and it looks like they have all of their financing. I haven't been near there and am not sure if they have br...

Yes. It would be built on the rest of that block.


Oh, I thought the rest of that block (to the South) was under control/ownership of the people renovating the old KC star headquarters. Maybe there is room behind this church on McGee for a phase 2?

Re: Ballpark Village v4.7 (st. louis)

It's pretty much a replica of Two Light, maybe a few floors taller, and with a similar decorative sloped parapet that may also get value-engineered out.
Nice to see some (new construction) development activity hit downtown StL.

Bollards with existing configuration would block the curbside parking. Hence swapping the bike lane and parking with the reconfiguration.
