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.

Re: Two Light - 14th & Grand

Found this on reddit. You'll have to zoom in, but it gives a different angle to the two light progress... Edit: I said zoom in, but that doesn't really make sense.

Re: The Gallerie - 27th & Gillham Apartments and Condos

Believe these renderings to be of the condo portion of the plan, I believe these buildings will be on the west side of McGee Trafficway and on the southern side of 27th between McGee and Warwick. Renderings from Draw Architecture's website KCDowntown It's just my personal opinion, but black brick i...

Re: Six Light

I agree, if there were enough of a demand for five and six light, three's ground level would be getting poured and four's parking lot would be getting prepped as we speak.

Re: On-going downtown development projects

i can't see that location ending up being anything other than a hotel. I would prefer a mixed condo/hotel project but i don't see it happening.
