Re: Streetcar to the riverfront

If the casino isn't chipping in for the dedicated stop then this should be killed immediately.

Re: OFFICIAL - Hampton Inn (16th & Main)

Kinda sucks. I kinda wish that they put would put a Starbucks in the P&L. It's two blocks away? Does that really make that much of a difference? Plus we don't even know the service level of this thing. I'm guessing it'll be on par with a Starbucks kiosk you find in a grocery. Yes it absolutely ...

Re: OFFICIAL - Commerce Tower

Wow, 3 months for renovations seems a little overboard. Years ago I worked at best buy and we kept the store opened and had a team work overnights for 10 days and completely renovated the building including the restrooms and carpeting. What are they doing that would take months?

Re: OFFICIAL - Loews Convention Hotel (formerly Hyatt)

... the city knows, the city doesn't care because the city understands that this hurts no one. I'm sure if you dug deep enough, there are dozens of violations in almost every project that goes up in every city. It only annoys the very small minority.

Re: OFFICIAL - Loews Convention Hotel (formerly Hyatt)

That's why I'm torn on this...it's not what we wanted and had and ordinance passed to enforce but there was zero foot traffic here anyways. Exactly. Maybe i'm in the minority here but this specific block was rarely if ever used unless by the people who parked in that old parking lot so it's not a b...

Re: OFFICIAL - Loews Convention Hotel (formerly Hyatt)

I saw this picture complaining about the sidewalk being closed on twitter. This is about the dumbest thing to be complaining about. They have it closed for public safety while they are constructing a new high rise hotel. They are building up to the sidewalk and this is not a small project. I honestl...

Re: Amazon searching for second HQ

We deserved to lose it. maybe this will help us understand that the rest of the world doesn't want to live like we do. We think that we have everything figured out and the rest of the world does it wrong i.e. Truman sports complex, corporate wood and the Cerner complex. Maybe some day, long after we...

Re: Three Light

It takes a driving force to change developers plans and it may have to come from downtown associations to gain any traction. Speak out to them if you want a change of Cordish plans. They haven't presented any final plans with any detail for Three, just high level renderings, so it may not be too la...
