Re: We need a new airport!!!

I did notice that we have glass jet bridges. That's a nice touch.

The panels look good in my opinion.

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 ...

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

Re: We need a new airport!!!

I get that prices are going up everywhere, we can't control that. Honestly, I do notice roof design quite often. Denver's roof is too low in most of the concourses, makes it feel more cramped than it really is. Sacramento's terminal has a nice sweeping scalloped roof and it it draws your eye to it. ...

Re: We need a new airport!!!

What’s wrong with an airport with a flat roof and no fountain? Does the shape of the roof have anything to do with how well it moves people around? Do you think most people are upset that costs are being kept under control by taking out a feature that is nice but provides no utility in exchange for...

Re: We need a new airport!!!

Except why release them if you don't want them to be scrutinized?? I imagine a lot of man hours went into those images to be released to the general public and if that's the case I am slightly concerned about the firm's attention to detail. AECOM had a fly through video before they were even selected.

Re: We need a new airport!!!

I agree that removing the scalloped roof design is a mistake and makes this airport more 'meh'. I'm okay with removing the indoor two story fountain, it just seemed like a logistical nightmare and it took up a lot of space. Surprisingly, the bathroom looked decent. My main concerns still is with the...

I picture Wyandotte being closed for conventions more often.
Isn't that why the created the 'sky bridge' between the ballroom and hotel?!? Essentially limiting the need to close Wyandotte?

Re: Politics

Obama described this situation in the best way in a Politico article: Obama mocked Trump and others for being among the angry: “They’re mad even when they win.” Trump’s executive actions and legal maneuvers to cut down Obamacare after failing to repeal it in Congress are a perfect example of what he...

Re: Politics

Kennedy gone is going to suck for those of us wanting to see us progress as a nation. While I didn't always agree with his vote, I felt he tried to really interpret the law to the best of his ability without much political bias.

Re: Politics

It was a policy that could have been changed at any time by Trump. It didn't require any action by Congress. But, this is what I don't understand: If it was policy that could have been changed anytime by Trump, then what was the point of the executive order? Why wouldn't Trump just change the polic...

Re: We need a new airport!!!

Take a look at slide 6. This shows that the extra sq footage is going to be an overall increase which means more amenities and physical space per passenger than the initial proposal. http://www.flykci.com/media/7671/21jun18-business-session-final.pdf The original plan called for the ability to expan...

Re: We need a new airport!!!

$1.4 billion sounds much more realistic as does the 1 million sq feet. The previous size and cost always concerned me that we were building on the cheap and that the airport would feel small. I don't have concerns with that anymore. Get this built!

Re: 1800 Walnut

This will only help the Crossroads. I understand their concerns, but this isn't tearing anything down and will add affordable rents to the area in addition to bringing more retail and adding some architectural flair! Love this project and it should get approved ASAP!
