Re: Westport

Would like to see St. Lukes vacate all of their property north of 43rd. Plenty of space for a huge garage where they just tore down the building no SE corner of 43rd & Wornall.

Re: KC's quirks and oddities (keep it light)

Did Wornall even connect through the plaza between Ward Parkway and 47th St? Seems strange it stops at Ward Parkway and starts back up a couple blocks east.

Re: OFFICIAL - Hyatt Regency Convention Hotel

There is also the large grass lot on 44th and Main owned by American Century (wasn't that supposed to become a sculpture garden?). I know that is a little disconnected from the Plaza. I really think the east side of Mill Creek Park could be reconfigured and given some attention so that it would int...

Re: Do you have or plan to get Google Fiber?

Looks like Google Fiber has raised price of TV service for new customers or upgrades from $60/month to $90/month. With the $10 box fee, price could be double what it was at launch. I wonder how long before Google gets out of the TV side and just offers internet. Market is moving that way anyway and ...

Re: Do you have or plan to get Google Fiber?

Hmm, they raised TV box from $5 to $10/mo. That must be new to new customers, I'm still showing $5/mo on my bill. Have heard they have tested TV to Chromecast but not sure if they'll release it. After 2 years renting you own the TV boxes and can sell to someone else, meaning you could also buy from...

Re: Westport's fate post-P&L

I cannot believe Murray's couldn't be sold for more as a going concern vs auction of the equipment.

They could have doubled or tripled business with a few tweaks, including better hours.

Re: Kansas City GO Bond

Not sure the elimination of sidewalk special assessments is going to be a selling point to all of those who have already paid to replace sidewalks on their streets.

I was in Papa Keno's the other day for lunch and the building was shaking from the demo work - glad it didn't fall down too.

Re: We need a new airport!!!

Doing nothing _is_ the best option. But all sorts of canards have been dribbled into the press in order to try to shoot down that best option. (Old plumbing; "tight" radius at the horseshoe terminals; security holdups; new de-icing equipment). Exactly. What we have works. Something will e...

Re: Amazon same day delivery in KC

I have no idea how many items Amazon sells, but I doubt they ever intend to offer 100 different deodorant varieties like you see at Target. Amazon tends to be a better deal for larger items or multi packs.

Re: Amazon same day delivery in KC

Neither of the amazon links you have are sold by Amazon. Third party sellers on Amazon can charge whatever they like and are often not a great deal.

However, Amazon is rarely a great deal on anything like a single stick of deodorant. Usually can get much better prices on those items at Target.

The linked site plan shows a Party city in that location.

The proposed addition to the south looks very disconnected from the existing part of the mall.

Re: Mark Twain Tower going residential?

Numerous mentions in the proposal of parts of the building which are inconsistent with a modern office building. Well maybe a modern office building is not its best use. There has to be a way to get that pool back into service in some capacity. Hotel, health club, residential, something.

This half baked plan does not warrant tax subsidies. Come back with a better plan.
