Re: GO ROYALS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

There's kind of a conundrum: putting it away from a growing downtown entertainment economy will protect that economy from dead spots in the form of parking garages, but that distance will also further minimize any economic benefits to the downtown. If it's not worth putting in the CBD, the economic ...

Re: GO ROYALS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I’ve seen a lot of research that says that the economic impact of downtown stadiums is surprisingly limited and becoming more limited. The Royals already work very hard to make sure that the stadium keeps entertainment dollars for food, drink, etc, inside the stadium.

Re: GO ROYALS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Hmmm. The list of reasons to avoid a stadium in the North Loop seemed to have some synergistic potential - with none of the downside of 100-loss seasons.

TBH none of that sounds appealing anywhere downtown. What’s the harm in leaving the stadiums where they are?

Crossing off dead zones and landbankers really doesn’t leave many options, lol.

Seriously, why not the North Loop?

Re: GO ROYALS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Build it over the North Loop and use the Bond Bridge or whatever replaces the Broadway Bridge as the backdrop beyond the outfield wall. If it’s going to cost a billion dollars, let’s make it memorable.

I’m going to guess that the new tenant will be whatever is the restaurant equivalent of Old Navy.

Applebee’s? Chili’s? Pizza Ranch?
A safe bet. Thing to yourself maybe it will be a Burberry and then laugh to yourself when it turns out to be a Dress Barn.

Re: Next Mayor 2019

The stories about him in Jeff City were not confidence-inspiring. What’s happening now? Not just voting nay. That’s his right. He grabbed a handful of resolutions and got them sent to the “special” housing committee (a committee he’s on) because he didn’t want the city manager to discuss proposals ...

Re: Renovations of apartment buildings along Armour Blvd.

Periodic reminder that Abnos paid somewhere south of $15k for that building and has done nothing to add to its value. Abnos probably needs MAC more than he would want to admit. If he misses out on being part of their development, he has a 140+ unit building with 0 parking spaces, rendering it effect...

Re: Property Tax Assessments 2019

I mean, for anyone looking for a reduction in their assessment, the bad news is in the next to last paragraph that says that the consensus of experts is that most JaCo properties are undervalued. The pace of implementation may be slowed but the end result is likely going to be a significant tax incr...
