Re: Amazon searching for second HQ

I hear everyone talk about universities and don’t understand that knock on us as a candidate. We are the largest metro area to:
KState, KU, Nebraska, MU, MSU, ISU, etc. not count MS&T and other smaller universities.

Re: Amenities missing from downtown

^ I was actually going to suggest a Magnolia Market store for DT. They’ve expressed a love for KC and said they would live here if they ever left Texas. I’m sure Target lawyers have them wrapped up tight though.

Re: Three Light

Kind of the point I'm trying to make though, ST. Is it better to spend the $15M up front and not have to upgrade in 5 years with the hassle of doing it with tenants in the building? And all the more so for the exterior. Why not spend some extra money on an exterior look that will be a classic and ti...

Re: Three Light

One Light was a bit of a risk. Sure, a new high rise residential unit hasn’t been built downtown for 40 years but “would they come” and “how much will they pay” was hard to nail down. The budget corresponded to those unknowns. Two Light will be much improved now that there’s some proof of concept. ...

Re: Amenities missing from downtown

BTM, it's not a big box, Target does small format urban stores now at bases of usually existing buildings and they focus on items that aren't available in the area. It's a good catch to score, but agree not entirely necessary. I’ve been to the one in DT Minneapolis. That one is two stories and has ...

Re: Amenities missing from downtown

I don’t really understand the direct need for a Target store. There’s already a grocery store DT. Costco will be on the new extension down Main for electronics. I’d much rather see a Crate & Barrel added and several smaller clothing stores. I don’t see why we really need a big box taking up a la...

Development Calendar?

Would there be a way to create a development calendar for the site that would list community meetings, city meetings of interest for development and major Association meetings? There are many times I would have liked to attend a meeting but didn’t know it was happening.

Re: Three Light

^ You’re right, the floors aren’t concrete. It’s the ceilings. Are the floors actual wood or engineered wood that they snap together? I think Cordish thought they could throw a hot dog to a hungry dog and it would get eaten up. They were right in the short term, but several years from now, they will...

Re: Three Light

Trying to explain profits and costs while then mentioning getting extra revenue from the garages. How about reinvesting some of that extra funds into a few design changes on 3? Believe me, I understand business, but I think putting out multiple products that are fairly blah will hurt your brand in t...

Re: Midtown McDonald's Rebuild

That McDonalds is a disaster! Computers always broken, drive thru gets stuck and painfully slow. They always needed the new double drive up configuration as the lines back up very often. Not a fan of the design but, it’s a McDonalds. They’re never going to be in Architectural Digest. (No pun intended)

Re: Downtown office vacancy

It’s 3/4 of a city block: 13th to 14th, Main to Baltimore. Bigger than Block and plenty of space for commercial. Should be cheaper too since footings and piers already existing.

Re: Downtown office vacancy

H&R Block had an option for another tower the same size as their current one on top of the retail spaces just west of Main. The piers were built into that location when they built P&L. I would much rather have commercial space there than 5 Light.

Re: BMA Building

I believe the current residents are bidding on it so there won’t be a development that blocks their views and they have more permanent parking.

Re: 3314 Main

They’re desperate. Not getting near the business they used to and have to find another revenue source. Once the streetcar goes in, they’ll sell for a new development. Will probably make a pretty penny on it too since they have such a large piece of property.

Re: We need a new airport!!!

Build a combination MLS/NFL stadium similar to Atlanta’s new stadium. I’d take that over even a MLB stadium.
