Six more floors to go. You can actually see it now at 30th & Main peeking out above the Westin.

Re: Martini Corner near 31st/Gilham

Any updates on the 31Levy/Velvet Freeze project? Still no construction activity, I think this was announced before the 27th and Gillham project.

Re: The Gallerie - 27th & Gillham Apartments and Condos

Moving quickly moving dirt, the old gym is gone. This complex is going to be somewhat isolated from the neighborhoods to the north and south. To access Crown Center the most direct you have to walk blocks between the walls of giant foreboding parking garages to end up in a passage by the Hallmark vi...

Re: Two Light - 14th & Grand

What about all the floors directly below where the glass sliders are installed, but no balcony?

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

No I can't. Nor can I see any standing in front of the building on south Truman.

There are balconies on the north side, not on the east or south, just sliding doors into nothingness.

Re: Union Station

Pershing Road is the most monumental area in town, but lacks actual people visible between the attractions. The honky tube does not help even though I appreciate it in the winter. Now that the even before inadequate Corinthian Hall will never be able to accommodate a true regional history museum thi...

Re: KC needs "yield to pedestrians: state law" signs at every intersection...

Almost got rear ended today yielding to peds in crosswalk on Gillham near Pershing. The car instead swerved into the lane on my right and on past the startled peds.

Re: Two Light - 14th & Grand

The "L" shape of the building is more pronounced than it appeared in the renderings. From the southeast is looks chunky enough to balance out the clunky AT&T. From the southwest it looks like a slim slab.

Re: Kessler Building at 1301 Oak (former Mutual Building)

Wasn't this going to be converted to a Holiday Inn? I remember when it housed Civic Plaza National Bank in the seventies and the owner was proposing to build a 52 story office tower across the street where the courthouse is.

Re: Westport's fate post-P&L

This is absolutely an historic building that should not be replaced by a generic apartment building. Has been a bank here for a century, originally Westport Bank. Was remodeled on exterior in the seventies to look more like Westport Square across Broadway.

Re: Renovations of apartment buildings along Armour Blvd.

Remarkable how this relatively low rise pre fab building dominates the streetscape in the thirties of Main, which is a stretch of low rise and surface lots.
Might be some nice views from the upper floor units.

Re: And here we go again... Midwest Hotel to be demolished

For the most part the new apartments built DT have been unimaginative and boringly similar. Not only is this different but it nicely incorporates the scale of the midwest hotel. I love how it even repeats the height and size of the late beloved torched Hereford House on the corner.

Re: OFFICIAL - Hyatt Regency Convention Hotel

No way is this a postmodern design. Postmodernism has detailing and allusions to historic and classic styles and ornamentation. This Hyatt design is just a very plain uninspired modern dormitory.
