Re: Old KCPS HQ - 12th & McGee

McGee north of the Sprint Center is a neighborhood street and that’s fine. It lets local traffic avoid Grand and Oak. It could be livened up a bit, sure. It doesn’t need to be truncated any more.

The three-story building to the south didn't look like it was badly affected from the street today.

Re: Smart City Project

The same initiative could be used to measure traffic flow during closures and lane restrictions to evaluate a street for a road diet.

If they put signs north and south of the Sprint Center on Grand to alert you of closures before you get stuck on Truman or 13th, I would be a happy camper.

Re: P&L District: 13th & Walnut Site Proposal

They do this every Thursday as Ford is a sponsor. The vehicles don't block pedestrian access and are on Cordish owned property. There have been some 311 complaints but those always come from road closures, as to be expected. From what I've read on here, many members are not fans of road closures. C...

Globe Storage and Transfer Building at 1624 Main (the northwest corner of 17th and Main). The little building on the right is where Anton's is today.
Note the now-lost rowhouses on the left side of the photo.

The developer is also pitching a "green line" along the railroad tracks that would connect Westside with 18th & Vine. I guess the city owns a lot of right-of-way along the terminal railway.
None that the parcel viewer shows.

Re: OFFICIAL - East Village

Several of the few remaining legacy buildings in the area are on the list, notably 817 Cherry, 612 E 9th, and 703 E 10th. Probably ought to start holding candlelight vigils for those structures.

Re: Misc Crossroads News

Soon enough we’ll be out of urban-form legacy industrial areas with building stock suitable for repurposing. Nobody will want to pioneer in a tin shed on a superfund site. This is why it’s important to preserve every viable pre-war building even if it’s not in a hopping area yet. Nobody would have e...

Sixth Street Trafficway is the east-west one. About mid-frame you can see where Admiral used to diagonal into it.
