Re: Westside happenings

I was told they haven't decided if the townhomes will be rental or for sale. Contact them if interested!

Re: Westside happenings

It's been under construction for a couple months or more. The townhomes are framed and the apartment foundation poured.

Re: Muehlebach Hotel / KC Club Project

I've heard that Hoefer Wysocki only did a study for this project (which produced the renderings we've been looking at) and that another well known local architecture firm is part of the project team. So I expect the actual project to look somewhat different. I'm not sure if the HW renderings were fo...

Re: Muehlebach Hotel / KC Club Project

My guess is interior spaces. Club bldg has nice lobby with tall ceilings, two story chapel space on floors 2 and 3, amazing rooftop event space. Muelbach doesn't compare. Developer said the new hotel will feature two restaurants. They have beautiful spaces for them in the club. Muelbach lobby is a s...

Re: OFFICIAL - Loews Convention Hotel (formerly Hyatt)

They're moving super fast on the room floors. Must want to get this space up quicker than the convention space. I didn't count the floors this morning but they're at about 2/3 height on the main tower. I counted the floors today. Looks like 9 more floors to go: http://i66.tinypic.com/1zg88ck.png

Re: KCMO Downtown Streetcar

I don't know why, after seeing KC's ridership numbers, these lastest streetcar operations aren't going with a linear route. I could study that OKC transit map for five minutes and still not be able to describe to someone where it goes. It doesn't look like it will go anywhere fast with all those tur...

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

I noticed the sign advertising the Wyandotte townhomes is gone (Epoch development).

Also, signage at the NE corner of 5th & Wyandotte is no longer advertising a three story spec office. It is marketing the corner for restaurant/retail now (Iconic development).

Wow, I'm shocked at how high our numbers are. Right up there with Las Vagas Monorail and ahead of many cities much larger than ours.
Note: it is ridership per mile, not total ridership.
Still very impressive compared to the other streetcars.
