Re: Saxon at the Midland (formerly Midland Office Building)

This must be Cordish/Helix's first micro apt project. Though it only took me a few minutes of searches to find some ideas. WTF Helix/Cordish, these are going for over $2/sqft and you got incentives.

Re: Saxon at the Midland (formerly Midland Office Building)

Hmm, designed by local firm Helix. For an architecture firm that embraces creativity, 3D efficient design must not be part of their vocabulary. At apparently over $2/sqft and public incentives, would expect more thought put into this.

Lots of wasted space.

Fecal Matters aside... Looking at the top of the kitchen cabinets relative to top of wall on the right yet bathroom wall goes all the way up, it looks like very high ceilings. Seems to be twice as high as top of kitchen cabinets. The shower head is also only half way up wall. Even more disappointing...

Re: Bike Lanes

As much as I like the bike lane design and road diet it is difficult to turn as a driver getting onto or crossing Armour at most intersections (that don't have a light). Am in the camp that urban design should cater to pedestrian first, bikes/scooters second and cars third but if prioritizing bikes ...

Re: KCMO Downtown Streetcar

At some point need to start proposing getting rid of parking along most of the line. Especially on snow days when there's a lot more poor parking, blocking streetcars.

I've seen fiberglass bathrooms in RVs like this and it's actually pretty slick. You can sit on the toilet seat while showering and use movable shower head to wash out e...

Re: Why Can't the West Bottoms Be Redeveloped....?

Has anyone tried the RideKC eBike up the 12th St. bridge? If it can handle it, seems that's the best way to connect W Bottoms to downtown for WB residents. Currently there are no Drop bike racks on map for eBikes in WB. Are there ANY bike racks in the West Bottoms? If there are any in the public RO...

Re: KC metro growth and migration stats

A rise of convincing Census scams are also expected this round so many might not return the real one if thinking already completed. KCMO might hit over 500K but the numbers we see yearly are estimates and tends to be 'corrected down' some at census time, typically not up. And then cities debate with...

Re: Why Can't the West Bottoms Be Redeveloped....?

Was thinking for Consentino runs and getting access to streetcar for nightlife, but Beardsley to RM works too even if not as direct.
