Re: OFFICIAL - Loews Convention Hotel (formerly Hyatt)

All of the scores of niches in the surface will be illuminated from below and certainly liven up that end of the block.

Maybe so, they were calling it "greasy decadence."

Re: Martini Corner near 31st/Gilham

Even though Brewer's Kitchen is not open yet they seem to be doing a good business. Burgers are $13.50, $3.00 more for bison. Also have grilled chicken. Comes with choice of 2 sauces, cheese and toppings. Included sides are fries, Mac& Cheese, Fried Brussel Sprouts or Salad. One of us got the fries ...

Re: Hospital Hill activity

Looks like the building has topped out(at least the elevator shaft). After the current floor is poured only two more to go.

Re: Three Light

Almost looks like 2 different buildings combined: one from the late 20th Century and one from now. The penthouses really do look like something added to the roof of a earlier bldng. Will look good as when combined with Strata the 3 newer buildings will echo the height ascendancy of the big 3 postmod...

Re: OFFICIAL - Loews Convention Hotel (formerly Hyatt)

Whats going on with the cladding for the elevator core on the inside elbow of the building? I assumed they would just slap some more of the pre-cast on it, but that would have gone on quick and without scaffolding.

Re: OFFICIAL - Loews Convention Hotel (formerly Hyatt)

I think the designers really messed up on the narrow south end of the tower. For some reason instead of continuing the floors straight to the top, they set back the last 3 floors to line up with the service elevator core. It awkwardly destroys the symmetry as there are no windows on the corner of th...

Re: Liberty Memorial Musuem and Penn Valley Park

Scroll down to see the fantastic design by Bertram Goodhue(Nebraska Statehouse) for the LM. A giant Greek goddess sheltered by an art deco temple.

Probably not feasible with given budget.

Re: Liberty Memorial Musuem and Penn Valley Park

It happened yesterday. The TV 5 coverage did not come flat out and say it was photo taking caused but inferred it by mostly talking about photo takers. All people photos here with skyline will have a stone wall at the bottom. Only way to get just skyline and person is to stand on top.

It is conjecture that photo taking was the reason she was atop the wall.

A woman fell off the north wall below the deck of the LM and survived. Lucky there is grass below.

Re: KC metro growth and migration stats

KC is no sunbelt growth rate. But at least its not St Louis with some negative years. 50 years ago metro St. Louis had 1,100,000 more than KC. Now its 662,000 larger. If this continues another half century they will be even, but St Louis will still be more important to state since most of its in MO.

Re: OFFICIAL - Loews Convention Hotel (formerly Hyatt)

Sort of hard to connect the two. Tisch brothers took over Loews theaters in 1958 long after Midland ceased to be Loew's. They then started tearing down theaters to put up hotels. Guess Loew's Hotel has better ring to it than Tisch's Hotel

Surely the Nelson will receive a large bequest, will there be something more tangible like a public art work as a memorial(other than the fountain)?

A development at 1034 or anywhere north of 11th St(Petticoat Lane).
