Re: KC School District Buildings... Reuse?

I thought that since Westside Housing Org was one of the partners with the more dense plan and they have been working on the Westside for a long time they would be selected.

Re: KC School District Buildings... Reuse?

I liked the plan that had more density too. I liked the idea of underground parking I was disappointed too but as a former resident I rather see something going that nothing at all.

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

I just wish we'd see the condo market start coming back. That, or 3 bedroom attached homes, or something a bit more for a family. Someday my fiancee and I will have to give up the condo for a bigger place and I'm slightly dreading leaving downtown/river market area. Look at the south side of the We...

I would not call it revival but at least the city finally put some money in Downtown. It seems to me that all the $$ is going to the legends.

There are apartment dwellers in our downtown, who co-op on commodity purchases from Costco.
That is a great idea plus you save on the membership too.

Fang some of those lots are owned by Westside Housing and some by Dean Realty, it seems that nothing can be done with a lot of those lots as one lot is owned by Dean the next one by Westside Housing and for what I heard neither wants to sell.

Re: Westside happenings

The south part of the Westside is still pretty affordable. The houses will need more work, but for example around 28th and Jarboe a 2 story house with 3 bedroom one bath sold for 62K I think. The house next door to me (need work) the owner offered to me for 30k, it is a 2 bedroom house.

I talked to a couple of guys that bought a house and a lot on Jarboe (around 28th) they said they looked into it but they beliebe a couple of the houses really need to come down. That said the viewcould be pretty good.

Re: renovate hanna, demolish lane... are we still doing this

I love coding it is fun and I am not joking and I can be coding all day long when I am having fun. That said 85,000 for 80 hrs a week while it is really great money, you are really getting paid 21 dls an hour.

May as well get a 65K where you work 40 hours a week.

Re: Metro North Mall

Zona Rosa should add more appartments not suew if they have space to do it but maybe on top of some of the parking garages. Adding 3 floors of appartments would be awesome plus they would have some potential clients right there.

Re: Housing- selling low

I know the Westside has changed quite a bit in the last few years. I used to visit back in 2000 and moved in 2004 (south part of the Westside). Even with the changes it is really a tiny area that may be expensive, where I live I can buy the house next door for 30K (2 bedroom). Even the north part of...

I mean, haven't you people seen how many authentic Mexicans eat QT taquitos on their lunch break?
That made me laugh :) I have to tell you I tried them once and they were pretty good. I wantd another one but I was on my way to Central in KCK and there are some good taco places over there.
