Re: Two Light - 14th & Grand

It does make the current complaints about what goes where kind of ridiculous. The public vote could have gone the other direction and this could be our present day reality.

Re: Two Light - 14th & Grand

It would be interesting to see a picture of the same area twenty years ago. I think it's amazing how far downtown has come and I can't wait to see the skyline five years from now when three, four light are completed as well as the new convention center hotel. I agree that what we need next is a new...

Re: OFFICIAL - Loews Convention Hotel (formerly Hyatt)

can a new construction hyatt be "boutique"? pretty sure that's what epoch said they wanted. seems like they'd want to be in the CBD, too... why not the spot at 14th & baltimore owned by DST that didn't make the cut for the convention hotel? or 14th and wyandotte, that would remove tha...

Re: Three Light

Black glass has always made me nervous. One Kansas City Place has never really been a stand out design to me, but I can see where black glass would be really cool with the right design. Not sure what that building is in the third picture with white but that's a sexy design. I think everyone will be...

Re: OFFICIAL - Hyatt Regency Convention Hotel

the new rendering looks far better IMHO. still looks like a hospital but now it's a glass hospital.

Re: Three Light

Sure, most folks will say that they don't care about the design of any specific one high rise. BUT, when you ask what people like about our "Skyline" they'll most likely mention the fact that it's varied and stepped in appearance. It's a very visually pleasing skyline, and signifies a cit...

Re: OFFICIAL: East Village downtown neighborhood

My guess as to where Target would locate a store downtown would be the area of Union Station East Yards / Washington Square Park. The reason for that is that it's near other existing retail in CC (mostly Halls); it's on the streetcar/major bus lines; and a store could sit atop a large garage that m...

Re: On-going downtown development projects

Don't forget the 400-unit apartment building going up at the riverfront. The last time I was down there, a few weeks ago, the footings were poured and it was about to start going vertical. The big story, I feel, is that development is finally moving beyond Greater Downtown and the Plaza. The buildi...

We've discussed the Hyatt Medical Center's horrible design at length a few pages back. We've all just come to accept it now.

Re: Washington Sq Park between Crown Center/Union Station

I liked the first rendering more. I feel like downtown needs more attractions. Offices are great and all but but i feel like that location next to crown center and union station needs to be an attraction like some kind of museum or national draw.

Re: Power and Light District Official Tenant List

Because, except for a few of the cities you name, I'd rather have what we have now as it is building organically. If we're copying St. Louis or Phoenix or San Diego; I'm out!

Re: Power and Light District Official Tenant List

I get that local bars and restaurants are great for locals but conventioneers, vacationers and suburbanites have spoken loud and clear. We really need to get over this whole "we're Kansas City and we know better than everyone else" attitude and do what works. Cities like Denver, Chicago, S...

Re: Power and Light District Official Tenant List

I still can't for the life of me understand why we don't have a House of Blues. I understand (but don't like) not having a hard rock in the power and light district but they could easily go somewhere else that's close within the loop.
