Re: "Tower East"

Church would remain downstairs. The club would be upstairs.

Re: OFFICIAL - Loews Convention Hotel (formerly Hyatt)

The cladding looks somewhat beige, I thought the renderings looked more grey. Is this a pre-cast stone like the KCPA or metal panels like the Barnes ballroom?

Re: We need a new airport!!!

Looks like they recycled the old wood floor and glued it to the ceiling!

Two different business owners in the area have told me there are plans to turn the El Torreon into a nightclub with dining, entertainment and dancing.

Re: "Tower East"

This moniker has been around for over a year. Tower East also sponsors the semi-annual Wonderfest. This spring they made and installed concrete planters along 31st and Cherry.

The lobby floor has some impressive height. The lobby bar will have a killer DT view.

That would have been a worthy neighbor of the KCPA.

I like the mini model sitting on the median. It looks like a boot scraper.

Re: Plaza move-ins (ongoing)

For anyone interested in the legacy of J C Nichols I recommend "The King of Kings County" by Whitney Terrell. It is a fictionalized account of the development of JoCo in the post wars years. Had to be fictionalized not to be sued for slander and defamation.

Re: Capping the Loop

Omitting the Baltimore/Wyandotte block might mean the remaining 3 blocks would not require expensive exhaust systems? Also that block along with the adjoining 2 empty bldngs on 14th might be the site for a smaller exhibition hall linked with the total convention complex.

Re: OFFICIAL - Loews Convention Hotel (formerly Hyatt)

The parking/meeting structure looks as tall as the hotel to the east, massive. How does the ballroom square footage compare to the Marriott, Sheraton, and Westin?

Re: OFFICIAL - Loews Convention Hotel (formerly Hyatt)

The Cooper Carry site has a new rendering with an overhead view. First thought they had covered the freeway, but just shows large trees. This is going to refer much more in design to the ballroom than to KCPA.

Re: Union Hill Development

Probably. The city should condemn it as a dangerous nuisance and they can re-erect it next to their studios in Kansas. The so-called "station that stands for Kansas City."

Re: Proposed: Hyatt House Hotel- 900 Broadway

Not sure about the grey brick veneer. Why not red brick as traditional garment district?
