Re: Generic ongoing KCATA thread

No one uses those for actual wayfinding. Why? Because the wayfinding isn't well designed or because the habbit is to use your phone for wayfinding? Not a snarky question. Wayfinding is incredibly hard to program and keep updated in digital signage. Even for something fairly static, like a hospital.

From that video, it appears Copaken wants to close McGee from 12th to 13th streets, and create a superblock.
Hard pass. Stop F'in with the grid. I'd rather see a honky tube than that.

Re: Phase 2 streetcar to UMKC

So for the plaza stop, northbound has a dedicated bus lane and shelters. What about southbound? At the Plaza stop, both lanes of the streetcar and the dedicated bus lanes will be on the east side of Main in a transit plaza. It shows that in the rendering if you take another look. My question is whe...

That stop should have a Spanish look. Red Tile Roof. Smooth concrete archways holding it up. Think LA Union Station.
Why? It's not on the Plaza and there's multiple buildings equally far away without a Spanish look.
It's the Plaza stop.

Re: Sporting Kansas City

Yep! The Blues (1967) are, indeed, older than the expansion Royals (1969). The Chiefs, however, are not an original. They relocated from Texas. StL will will have 3 original franchises to KC's 1 after the MLS StL franchise begins play. :P KC has 2 original franchises, you “best fan in baseball,” yo...

Someone should tell the dodgers their stadium will never work with such large elevation changes.

Re: Would you like to see the Royals move to a downtown stadium?

The IRS Facility would have been a great location for baseball To put a stadium where the IRS is would have meant tearing down the historic postal building. The site wasn't big enough otherwise. Remember, the stadium today is about the size of 6 city blocks. Without the surrounding sidewalks. Right...

Re: Would you like to see the Royals move to a downtown stadium?

The new stadium in Atlanta faces south. The main concern is that the sun not be distracting to the batter or pitcher in the evening. A northwest facing would work perfectly fine, Southwest could work. In MLB stadiums the stands can be designed block most of the evening sun anyway. Problem with facin...

I may be wrong but will the new Royals owner be the poorest of the 30 others?
First and foremost, Sherman is clearly worth more than Glass, so that's all that REALLY matters.
Not any more.

Re: GO ROYALS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Probably good thing this closed quickly. Delays or lingering may have caused higher bids from outsiders and MLB might have pressured Glass to consider them. I'm a little concerned over the price tag. At a billion dollars, it could put financial pressure on the ownership group and the small market c...

"The Twain" I think. Very creative.
I guess that's better than naming it after the African American that assisted Huckleberry Finn in the novel.
