Re: OFFICIAL: The Legends at Village West

Incentives for an amphitheater when Sandstone (or whatever it's called now) is within what? Half a mile? Not that I agree with incentives, or even an arts facility in this location, but the amphitheater somewhat makes sense in this spot, given that it is designed to be a school for aspiring "roadie...

And DT could probably use a good breakfast/brunch place.
Banksia is quite good, and around the corner...
Not to mention the Mildred's that is relocating to the space right behind Banksia.

Re: Mark Twain Tower going residential?

There has been some sort of construction/remediation/demo crew in and out of this building for at least the last few days. Is working finally starting to begin?

Re: Hotel Bravo- 17th and Wyandotte

What would you think of a development like the Marriot Courtyard being done on this lot? No incentives, fills the lot, and is pretty sizable What did you think about the Home2Suites development? It’s on the streetcar line, is ugly as hell and we had to redo the road system to get them the land. Wha...

Re: Three Light

I recall something about the Midland Office Building being completed as affordable housing around the same time as Three Light. Do we know if this is still a thing? I'm most excited to see that building's first floor retail space reactivated!

Re: 3rd & Grand to be redeveloped as TOD

Its been years, so correct me if I'm wrong, but wasn't this project originally sold as a mixed-use transportation hub? To me, it looks like it has morphed into solely a suburban office building project.

Re: OFFICIAL - 909 Walnut

Excellent that Spokes will be adding sidewalk seating to that corner. But would be even nicer if they were open later than 6:30 PM and/or made the windows a little more transparent. Walnut could use the increased activity, though I get Spokes is on an island there after dark. I work across the stre...

This place could flip to Mexican overnight. Nothing but the sign says Chinese .
Exactly. Was literally a chicken and burger shop for what, a week? It could go at any time!
They must have kept the same radio station from the chicken spot.

Anybody been to the Chinese place yet? I've been a couple of times. Its a nice, quick, and cheap lunch option. Their basic options are their house beef, chicken, or tofu paired with either rice, noodles, or salad. Haven't tried the burgers. As a person that eats out frequently over lunch, I'd kill ...

It's been under construction for a couple months or more. The townhomes are framed and the apartment foundation poured.
Wow, I guess it has been longer than I thought since I was last over there. Thanks for the info.

Re: Westside happenings

Apparently the apartment project at 17th and Madison is still going to happen. According to EPC Real Estate's website, construction is beginning this summer. I thought this one was dead?

Re: "Flashcube" Building - 720 Main

So there's no new activity at this site? Just utility work unrelated to the renovation? I can confirm there is at least some activity in the building. There is a dumpster on-site and workers filtering in-and-out the front door. Work still seems to be minimal, though. This is completely unrelated to...

Re: "Flashcube" Building - 720 Main

There is a dumpster setup next to this building and a handful of workers have been on site for the past week. Hoping work on this building picks up soon.

Also of note, for the first time in years, the ice on the sidewalk outside of this building has been salted this week!

They have been doing this in downtown Milwaukee and all over the suburbs on select day. It looks like its been a success. Does any place in KC even do a Christkindlmarket?

Does this project 100% require a grant?
“We’re still actively working with the Port KC and the city on the funding and financing plan that would leverage revenue capture from other sources,” Gerend said.

Re: Five Light

I haven't heard any criticism about the height or design. I wouldn't have brought it up, but they are grouping the garage facade as well, and I just found that a little odd. The overhangs of each ‘grouping’ are usually an architectural element for fire suppression. Instead of the fire coming out th...
