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?
This is the only one I know of. Pretty homegrown, but seems to be popular. http://kcucc.org/kristkindl-markt/

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...

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

Is this building not going to have windows facing DT or have they just not cut the openings for them yet? Seems strange if they don’t have windows with a view. Might be because the lot to the north could build and block the windows. All four sides face downtown.... I thought it was strange that the...

Re: OFFICIAL - ARTerra (21st and Wyandotte)

You can see the underside of the balcony structure. I appreciate this articulation regarding the articulation. I knew there was something off but I couldn't put my finger on it. You're exactly right that the open balcony structure (along with the different railing) creates an unfinished look. I hav...

Re: H&R Block's Second Tower?

Recently saw a promo video for a possible tower on this site (directly west of H&R block tower). Won't be a new tallest or anything, but would certainly be a nice/unique addition to our skyline. I don't know any additional details or likelihood of the project happening, hoping the video is released ...

From what I've heard, this is a relocation and not an expansion. I hope I'm wrong, as I'll miss the short lived action down in the East Bottoms.

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

Golden Ox apparently reopens this Friday (June 8).

Amazing, I thought this idea was dead, as I hadn't heard anything for what seems like years. Best of luck to them, although I feel like their marketing could have been a little better.
