Re: Fixing p&l traffic backups

This will fix the problem of blocking the streetcar:
on event nights, H&R Block's garage Main St exit could be closed (enter/exit off Walnut only) and Midland's / One KC Place garage Main St exit could be closed (enter / exit off Baltimore only).

Re: Three Light

We know about the 4-story 63-unit condo building which is part of the Milhaus/UC+B Gallerie development. They may have mis-spoke and were referring to that. IIRC, the condo aspect of that project was scrapped and they will all be rentals. I do know for a fact that the for-sale townhomes are still p...

Re: Three Light

The most interesting quote from the article is non-three light related. Matt Zammar of Re/MAX Legacy, one of the area's leading condo agents, recently advised Winters that a developer plans at least one new condo tower in the Crown Center area. The Crown Center expansion plans I found must be accur...

Re: Capping the Loop

VACATION of walnut Terrible idea to vacate Walnut as seen in one or more of the Cordish renderings. Vacation of Main, allowing only the streetcar thru the park, should be looked at. It could force drivers to actually use the other N-S streets in the grid instead of clogging up Main Street from 10th...

Re: Downtown office vacancy

Location West of HR Block being looked at for Class A office building. Guess this means no 5 Light :/ Isn't that the exact location discussed in the Five Light thread? I also thought it was mentioned that the "# Light" branding may not apply to 5 and 6, and that they were looking at offic...

This is the NW corner 3rd & Delaware, across from The Farmhouse outdoor seating. Are you thinking of the SW and SE corners of 5th & Main, across from Minsky's?

No, I mean the campus building at 45th and Oak which appears to be a former residence.

Re: Hospital Hill activity

Some thoughts/questions on the Beacon Hill Hotel: Do we know the number of rooms? Looking over the documents, I couldn't see it listed. It does say: GROSS DENSITY: 30.34 UNITS/ACRE (BASED ON AREA OF NEW DEVELOPMENT OF 0.76 ACRES) That would equate to 23. On the Development Tracker map, it says: Num...

Re: Hospital Hill activity

Final UR Plan submittal showed up on the city's development tracker for the Beacon Hill Hotel @ 2321 Troost, just north of the UMKC grad student housing. It's a La Quinta. Not the same design as before but it looks decent: http://www.generatorstudio.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/11/00_beacon-hill-hote...

Re: Plaza move-ins (ongoing)

wow, that will be transformative. looks like it will require demolition of 13 mostly 1 and 1.5 story small-ish single family homes (many of which have been converted to office use). I wish Belleview and Madison could be converted to two-way between 43rd & Brush Creek. Belleview is a downhill rac...

Re: Amazon searching for second HQ

Listening to Kevin Collison on KCUR's 'Up To Date'...
Did I hear him correctly? Did he say that the riverfront was the only downtown site pitched to Amazon? No North Loop or East Village?

Edit: Yes, he just repeated that. Sad to hear.
