Re: 1800 Walnut

How about the Streetcar TDD building a mega garage near a stop, or several garages near stops. It would serve all the people in the TDD and further the vision of why we have the streetcar to start with.

Re: Downtown Masterplan

Tear down brand new apartments, got it. The trench is way skinnier than a stadium. New apartments? WTF are you talking about? The trench. Yes, it is skinner. That's why I said OVER the trench. The highway running under. Don't think that would be smart from a security standpoint. You wouldn't want s...

Re: Downtown Masterplan

Love it. If I was granted only one wish for DT it would be moving 35 off of SW Trafficway. Not my second wish but I would build a stadium (rolling roof), west of Bartle, over the highway trench, so it could be leveraged for convention space. City views would be great too. Tear down brand new apartm...

Re: OFFICIAL: Port Authority Riverfront Project

Went down there last nite. Very nice. The problem at the moment is it's not walkable to anything but a park. I know all that should change but I've been burnt enough by "future amenities" that I would have to let someone else be the pioneer. When I'm ready to go in five years I'm sure the...

Wouldn't they have to modify Arrowhead to fit a regulation field? Has to be 70 yards wide at minimum.

Re: NHL OR NBA, let the message board decide!!

Um no. Horrible idea to have a team split between cities 250 miles apart. No investor would go for that. It failed with the Kings in the exact same market for the same reasons I stated above. Season tickets and suite sales. Not to mention doubling all the operational expenses, office spaces, marketi...
