Re: We need a new airport!!!

My biggest concern with the design is that there isn't enough width in the terminal as compared to some of our counterparts. Looking at the Star's view of Indy, Raleigh-Durham, and Ft. Meyer's airports they all had more square footage than the proposed single terminal. I'm not suggesting we have to ...

Re: We need a new airport!!!

Every naysayer should have to watch this video. I know Mark Van Loah is the one explaining everything and he's the one who got us into the mess the wrong way, but this really sheds light on why a renovation won't work. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VsPYlHmlmRc&feature=youtu.be

Re: We need a new airport!!!

My biggest concern with all of this is that it looks like their concourses are very narrow, lack enough room for seating, and while they appear to be pleasant in overall look/feel, the size seems off. Check out the drawing with "Gate 5" it looks like it is just stuck next to a restaurant, ...

Re: Should Jackson Co. relocate the Correctional Facility?

I always love this argument. Rather than put in the hard work and make difficult decisions to fix the problems we face, let's just kill them all! That will surely solve the problems we face :roll:

Re: OFFICIAL - Loews Convention Hotel (formerly Hyatt)

This really sounds all positive. Like Loews is classing up the design and making sure it is less generic.

Re: Amazon searching for second HQ

We need to also be sure to consider pitching the caves as a potential for Amazon Web Services (as a backup data center). They could save some serious cash on cooling their data centers if they had them in the caves. Only helps that we're on one of the major fiber optic spines, they could really expa...

What about all of the subcontractors that signed an exclusivity agreement with B&M? Will Clarkson be able to find enough local subs?

Re: We need a new airport!!!

Just read through them (skimmed B&M's mostly). First thoughts are that this is really between AECOM and B&M. JLL's unique idea of design may sound more practical, but really would mean more walking and less convenience for the passenger. I personally liked B&M's better than AECOM's, but ...

Re: Phase 2 streetcar to UMKC

While this is definitely a setback, after reading this and looking at past initiatives, I do not see the problem for phase 2. The taxing district is already approved (which is where this ballot question likely really applied). The next steps are voting to elect a board and then setting the taxing ra...

Thought of an idea for the new terminal if it comes to fruition. Have a college basketball experience section in the terminal. Something like famous last second shots. If someone hits the shot, they're given a prize, tickets to CBE, free basketball, autographs, etc. would definitely make for a uniqu...

Re: We need a new airport!!!

Yes, I fly Southwest almost exclusively. Haven't seen the new San Diego terminal and my only experience is wi...

Re: We need a new airport!!!

I hate San Diego, Laguardia, LAX, and San Luis Obispo (small crappy terminal). KCI is slowly becoming San Diego for me in terms of cramped space and never a clean restroom when you need it. My favorite airports are Sacramento, Phoenix Sky Harbor, Austin, Love Field, and Burbank. Really can't beat th...
