Re: "Flashcube" Building - 720 Main

I'm against credits for this ugly ass building BUT...

Historic is not a synonym for Good. It is for important. And if it was the first, or early, example of this shit box style, then it is historic.

Re: We are getting a new airport!!!

Not a bad view. Not close enough for detail but the project won’t grow out of view like with the hotel camera This project will takeup almost the entire current view. I think the work will extend off camera to the left. https://pbs.twimg.com/media/D5k6-tcWwAA-Fyt?format=jpg&name=small Looks like th...

Re: Help needed: Annexation history of KC

I know it's an old thread that got bumped but the parcel viewer has a layer for annexations and detachments (KC traded some land with Gladstone and NKC that I know of). You can zoom in and see exactly where they have been at down to the address level It's under "layers" http://maps.kcmo.org/apps/pa...

I was specifically addressing KCpowercats assertion that those fans should be embarrassed for enjoying something they enjoy. Enjoy what you want as long as it doesnt harm anyone.

Re: NFL Draft

How about just letting people enjoy what they want to enjoy and keeping your opinion to yourself if you don't enjoy it. Nobody is forcing you to participate, are they? No one should be embarrassed for enjoying something they enjoy. And you shouldn't try to make them feel that way if you don't. Focus...

Why on earth does everyone want to trust the Glass family with building a new stadium? Can you imagine how cheap and ugly that would be?

Re: Kansas City Automotive Museum

Kansas City Automotive Museum planning huge expansion ... Right now, the museum only has room for around 30 cars in its 10,000 sq. ft. space. There's so much history jammed into the small space, it takes a keen eye to catch it all. Only the most observant visitors would be able to spot the Kansas C...
