Re: OFFICIAL - Loews Convention Hotel (formerly Hyatt)

I know we don't have any cladding up yet, but just looking at all the curves and jut outs in the concrete going up, I feel like the renderings didn't do this project any justice. This is going to be a unique looking hotel in the end.

Re: Hyperloop between KC and STL

Can't find the link, but the Saudi's pulled their $1 billion investment in Virgin Hyperloop because Branson pulled out of the Davos in the Desert thing due to the Journalist being murdered. That will likely have two outcomes. 1. it might mean that VHO refocuses efforts on the US since they had been ...

I believe it is for testing the curtain wall (window) system to ensure it stands up to leaks and other stresses.

Re: 1800 Walnut

Put some amenities on the ground level, like the gym, or lounge. While it isn't going to pull in people off the street it definitely is more engaging than just a wall

Re: Fixing the KC Zoo (ongoing)

I like the idea of an aquarium but not really sure its the direction the KC Zoo should go in. The Zoo is very spread out and should devote it's funds to infilling it's vacant spaces with new animal species. Since Wistoff has arrived, he's concentrated on rides, playgrounds and food venues and a cou...

Re: Fixing the KC Zoo (ongoing)

Zoo is looking at $75 million aquarium to rival Henry Doorly Zoo in Omaha. 700k-750k gallon tanks one for warm water one for cold water species. Targeting 2021-2022 opening. $20 million private donations committed, looking for $7 million from city (from the general obligation bond). Rest would be pa...

Re: We need a new airport!!!

Yeah, again I don’t think the original roof that was presented was some sort of new architectural achievement. It just wasn’t some flat big box roof. It is interesting and appealing. This is a $1.4 Billion airport terminal, I don’t think a better architectural design is too much to ask for. I agree ...

Re: We need a new airport!!!

Are you sure that roof was visible from inside? What about changing the roof makes it world class? What makes you think there aren’t other aspects that are better places to spend money. I would take $10 million and get the best seating possible instead so when people hit the gate they have a premiu...

Re: We need a new airport!!!

I will wait and see before I make put in my 2 cents. But, for right now, the renderings are of poor quality. SOM must be working on a very tight budget right now. Both B&M, and Aecoms renderings were light years better than these and they hadn't even been paid yet! None of their renderings were cha...

I was center running fan but the analysis makes me a believer
I agree. Now if we could get a better analysis on why the scalloped roof was dropped in favor of a flat roof design for the airport, I'll be a happy camper

Re: We need a new airport!!!

Funny you mentioned Galveston. I was down there this summer and my wife and I commented on the waves of the concrete median. So, yes that caught our attention and I think that's the point of design. It's meant to soften things and not make structures so utilitarian. That's what most of us are upset ...

Re: We need a new airport!!!

Anyone know if Zahner is part of this team? I'm guessing they would have some cool ideas for the roof.
