Re: Plaza move-ins (ongoing)

According to a Business Journal article on endangered buildings the Christian Scientist church is to be torn down and replaced with a 13 story office tower. Would be a loss for the human scale along 47th and create a blocky wall on the north side. I wonder if they got this wrong and meant there is ...

Re: OFFICIAL - ARTerra (21st and Wyandotte)

Looks much better with the scaffolding gone, especially the south side. North side looks kind of European utilitarian.

Re: Power and Light District Official Tenant List

So how big is the C&C space? I've only been there when it was Makers Mark and it seemed kind of small for a marquee type establishment. The P&L District has always needed that high profile restaurant to bring people in from across the metro and this may be the closest thing to high profile on a nati...

Re: Power and Light District Official Tenant List

Maybe they finally took my advice and will make the Irish place half what it should be....otherwise I'd guess Cleaver & Cork. It is Cleaver and Cork. That place didn't last long.

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

I was looking at some older renderings of this project and was a bit confused by the scope. So it will encompass the Midwest Hotel Building, the now vacant lot to the north (new construction), a one story restaurant on the lot to the south, and from the renderings, it appears the entire lot behind (...

Shake Shack is slated for a September 6th opening. Old Navy in the former Gap space sometime this fall. I carried out from Shake Shack lasts week.

Re: OFFICIAL - ARTerra (21st and Wyandotte)

Looks better than I thought it would a few weeks ago when it was still covered in scaffolding. The brick is much lighter than advertised but it's not bad.

Is the ARTerra moniker displayed on the side of the building as the rendering suggests?

Re: Three Light

Couple surveyors were in this parking lot this morning and it was blocked off from parking. Maybe getting ready to start construction? I'm not sure they're there yet. Surveyors were testing the soil for One Cardinal Way in St. Louis about two months before the actual ground was broken. We'll see! W...

For Week 2, the Chiefs were: #1 in offense #1 in special teams #32 in defense Not too dissimilar to Mizzou football.

Re: Affordable Housing

The affordability number today is about keeping the top of the market down so lower end buildings are less likely to raise rates. It's probably mostly to stop developers from calling insanely high numbers as affordable for incentives like they had been doing. Putting a low income person in 3 Light ...

Re: Fixing the KC Zoo (ongoing)

^ I’d guess that JOCO leaders would require funds go to their area too, like for the Deanna Rose Farmstead. They’re petty like that. They have every right to be "pretty like that." Any bi-state tax should benefit both states. As I recall, previous attempts have failed because the plan was to funnel...

Re: UMKC Conservatory of Music considers move to downtown

Theis Park is a joke, never used and is simply open space. If the right developer or project came along, the city should seriously consider the exchange. I was thinking of Southmoreland Park when I said it was well used. Still, I would never advocate for anything other than landscape improvements a...

I was going to suggest across the creek from Nelson Atkins, then realized that was the MRI Global property haha. Don't think we have to worry about William Jewell becoming a big player, their accreditation is currently on probation. I'd leave MRI Global alone. It fits in well where it is and doesn'...

Re: Fixing the KC Zoo (ongoing)

I like the idea of an aquarium but not really sure its the direction the KC Zoo should go in. The Zoo is very spread out and should devote it's funds to infilling it's vacant spaces with new animal species. Since Wistoff has arrived, he's concentrated on rides, playgrounds and food venues and a coup...

Also, the Community Benefits don’t add up to hundreds of millions or anything large. Probably. But the easiest thing to do is just drop the community benefits ...

Re: We need a new airport!!!

Too bad, really. At least the design for the old KCI was unique and innovative for its time. What we’re getting here is the cheapest and most generic scheme possible, a step from Oklahoma City and on par with every mid-tier city in America. Congrats, KC. So many things went wrong with the marketing...

Since about 90% of the cars in Europe are Manual, does having a manual make you more of an attentive and possibly better driver?
