Re: Nelson Atkins - Moving Forward

Nelson-Atkins Museum is installing mini golf course on lawn

Seems kinda cheesy. I hope it's well executed.

Re: "Flashcube" Building - 720 Main

i just drove by about 20 minutes ago and there were a few trucks outside and guys who looked like they could be the architects and foremen outside pointing and talking out the plans.

Re: OFFICIAL - McCown Gordon HQ

i would assume that it would be easier to purchase an empty lot somewhere else along the streetcar line than to purchase an existing building and tear it down. Guess my assumptions are wrong.

Have you ever been to a non tourist area of San Diego. My experience in SD was a few months atCamp Pendleton (the USMC base) and the surrounding area. They are far and i mean FAR ahead of Kansas City in almost every way.

Re: Status and future of the River Market area??

Don't like it? Build your own. Growing, thriving cities like San Diego have replaced many surface lots and old, obsolete single-family houses in their core with buildings and designs similar to this. Same goes for Denver. I was there last week and they had fully build out neighborhoods where every ...

Looks a little better in color. I'm still not too fond of the design but it's better than a gated parking lot.

Re: OFFICIAL - Loews Convention Hotel (formerly Hyatt)

I see no reason to revise my earlier prediction: this poorly designed hotel is going to extend the dead atmosphere of the convention district into the Crossroads. I'm still holding out hope that they are going to put some kind of thought into the pedestrian experience. Remember, they did put this p...

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...
