Re: OFFICIAL: Penn Valley Park (Ideas+redeveloment)

The only thing Union Cemetery needs to be a functioning park is gates on all sides open during daylight hours. People in the neighborhoods around it(me) could use it as a pleasant shortcut to Crown Center or Main St or PV Park.

Re: P&L District: 14th & Baltimore site proposal

I was walking down the east side of Main and noticed for the first time how very narrow the lot is on the south side of the Mainstreet theatre. I looked east over to Two Light and can tell that it is much wider than would fit on this lot. A conventional apartment unit/hallway/apartment unit would no...

Re: 3537 Broadway

The drugstore is still there, the retail spaces being finished out are to the north. The Congress apartments are quite nice and much less $$$ than anything DT or Union Hill.

Still have the 1977 paperback. Biggest difference is the original was all b&w photos. New edition is color, still not that much info on each building.

Re: OFFICIAL: Penn Valley Park (Ideas+redeveloment)

Originally one side of the current Broadway was the through street, the other was a slower traffic carriageway. There are some absurd measurement of the indirect paths neighbors of the park have to walk to get to the park: http://urbanangle.net/reconnecting-penn-valley-park/ http://pennvalleypark.org/

Re: OFFICIAL - 21c Museum Hotel KC (former Savoy Hotel)

This may be one of the most important rehab and restoration projects ever DT. We just do not have many large buildings from the 19th century that were not demolished. If only the old Board of Trade a block away was still standing(after more than half a century still a surface lot).. Its death really...

Only two more floors to go. Will this be topped out by the end of July? Like the stone element on northeast corner, wish they would have wrapped it around southeast corner as well.

Re: Three Light

When living at the View I had large balconies on both sides of the building and seldom used either. There was always a constant wind, and one had the peculiar sensation of being a fly on a window. Having floor to ceiling wall to wall windows, the views were actually better from indoors due to the pi...

Re: OFFICIAL: Penn Valley Park (Ideas+redeveloment)

The absolute minimum that could be done is a stop light at 29th. I can not understand why this was not included in the recent reconstruction of Broadway and the rumble strips. A Calatrava-esque foot and bike bridge with an axis from south of the Pioneer Mother linking up across the valley to behind ...

No one has pointed out that the 2,3,& 4 Lights stairstep in height, reflecting the height differences of the Big 3 postmodern towers lined up directly behind them on 12th St.

Re: Renovations of apartment buildings along Armour Blvd.

The old duplexes and apartments on the north, west of Baltimore are coming along great. They are in the process of installing new exterior columns and ironwork railings. Going to look perfect to the period, great save.

Those projections appear to be temporary scaffold (safety?) as they have moved up a floor with the continued construction in the two photos.
