Re: OFFICIAL - Loews Convention Hotel (formerly Hyatt)

While she is a troll, I think you are a bit misguided. This is Kansas City. The "Bass Pro Demographic" does come downtown. Almost all of the city falls into the demopgraphic in some way. Of course they do. Why do you think we have a huge 3 story neon outline of cowboys in our downtown ent...

Re: Phase Three Streetcar Expansion

I don't see any point in streetcar to TSC. Unrealistic that there will be baseball played there in 20 years, and 20 events a year at Arrowhead don't justify it. If rail ever gets built on the Rock Island then there will be a stop for TSC. Only way I would be for a line to TSC is if the Hunts and Gla...

Re: Urban Living Pet Peeves

I am so glad I found this. My pet peeve is parking. I hate never being able to find a good parking spot. It is not easy to have to walk to far in heels and it is not good after dark to be a lady walking alone. I bet you hate malls and big box stores too. You have to walk the equivalent of dozens of...

Re: Two Light - 14th & Grand

it's a lack of desire. there are plenty of options in a similar price range for cladding and glazing. To ST's point. cordish does have a responsibility to the city to deliver an aesthetically pleasing product that integrates with the cities aesthetic. The city and its residents are your partners, cu...

Re: Politics

Why is no one saying "Rape". Every news report is saying things like "forced non-consensual sex" and "Unwilling sexual encounter". It's Rape. He is being accused of rape.

All may not be lost in Parking Garages - Look to Wichita for inspiration

Wichita Firm converts old parking garage into apartments. http://www.kansas.com/entertainment/ent-columns-blogs/keeper-of-the-plans/article208445814.html Pretty cool and innovative project. I assume leveling the floors would be the biggest issue but looking at the spiral entrance to that garage they...

Re: Status and future of the River Market area??

If you want all of your shopping and residential options to have parking right out front there are plenty of places to live in the city. Many many much many more than there are urban options. Downtown enthusiasts are trying to create a space where cars are not the primary, or even secondary, design ...

Didn't think you could have moving content in highway adjacent billboards in Missouri. I'm sure you covered that though.

Re: Two Light - 14th & Grand

In any digital signage application, the biggest challenge is keeping eyes on the board when content gets stale. I think mixing in some appropriate art from local artist is a good idea.

No loops, please. Makes things less than super simple and we have seen that super simple drives ridership.

But it's a good idea in general.

Do we really need a 15th (I hope this is an exaggeration) event space downtown?
