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.

Re: Plaza move-ins (ongoing)

About that building reno on the ne corner of Cleaver & Main. They took a boring modern building and made it more ugly. It now looks like a postwar housing project. Reminds me of Quality Hill towers.

Re: OFFICIAL - Loews Convention Hotel (formerly Hyatt)

I do not see anything not shown in the renderings. I think the exterior design of this building will be better received than the Cordish apartments. I was surprised in seeing this from the intersection of 13th & Wyandotte. Even though you could never actually see 670 from there, seeing this hotel fr...

It is ironic that those who campaigned against KC's Sprint Center want to build a stadium on the other side of the state with tax incentive financing.

Looks like they are falling behind schedule. No way they can put up two floors on the parking/meeting structure in 2 weeks.

Re: OFFICIAL - Loews Convention Hotel (formerly Hyatt)

It is to show what the exterior finishes will look like. They have something similar at the Gallerie site and have done it for just about every building put up at Crown Center.

Re: OFFICIAL - The Gallerie (27th & Gillham)

I like the dark cladding on the upper section facing McGee. The rowhouses have a very shallow back to front foundations. Looks like they may do some interesting terraced landscaping. Room enough on Gilham for a double row of trees.

That dark grey precast installed on Baltimore is somewhat foreboding. Not very pedestrian friendly, would make me want to walk on other side of street.

They certainly hit the exact mark on the Liberty Memorial-Kauffman Center view shed. From either point the other appears to sit on the roof of ARTerra.

Re: Uptown Shoppes

Keeping parking for the Uptown is vital for that venue. Some performance nights parking spills over into the neighborhood. You might think something dense built up next to Broadway was torn down for the strip mall, but it replaced something actually less dense, an old mansion. I think the stone wall...
