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

The design has more visual variation than the typical Lego block trend (5/6th Grand as well), with appropriate sidewalk integration. One of the few that turned out as good or better than the renderings. Interior of the Sbux rather bland but can be easily changed over time. More of these with differe...

Re: Westport

Regazza opened yesterday, moving to 43rd/Main. Hope to see another restaurant take the old space on Westport Rd.

Re: Hyperloop between KC and STL

As long as someone else pays for it and only MO investment (perhaps buying right of ways) could be used for a secondary use (such as new I70), go for it. It's potential failure might be a great way to kickstart a new I70 and/or new Amtrak line separated from freight. I will bet you $10 they ask for...

vessel - walkable art, hudson yards, nyc

NYC beat us to a tornado building. 155 ft, about 15 stories. Is free to visit but have to reserve a ticket for a time period. https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-K_9fvQFWl8M/XIg0gsqH9qI/AAAAAAAAACY/X11x3XEv_4EUeUs8gVMucID95p7wz5QdACK8BGAs/s512/2019-03-12.jpg https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-G1iK971...

Re: Three Light

How's the occupancy rate for high end downtown units looking today? A recent Biz Journal report said that Plaza occupancy is not all that great for upper end units. Would imagine 3L delayed until occupancy rates at a level they want to see (for higher end units beyond 1/2 Light).

Down Grand, cross to Broadway at either Pershing or maybe Linwood or Armour.

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

Those walls look ominously and mundanely sterile, not a good color complement with wood/leather tone either. Doesn't look like a comfy/cozy place to hang out. Maybe that's the intent?

Re: North Oak MAX

This would be more effective if it went to Plaza, better yet to Waldo. If UMKC streetcar is going to kill MAX down Main, a N Oak to Waldo via Broadway true express bus would be a great complement.

Re: Bird Scooters Have Landed

Bird is setting up a form of franchising to allow 3rd party operators including city entities. Given RideKC is operating ebikes now would RideKC take on operating scooters?

Re: Martini Corner near 31st/Gilham

An Indian restaurant might do well with the recent influx along Armour and Gilham stretches. The city core doesn't have very good Indian places, most of the good ones are in JoCo.

Re: Martini Corner near 31st/Gilham

It has the potential to become another W39th but not likely to occur when two entities own most of 31st stretch (from what I understand).
