Re: Plaza move-ins (ongoing)

Eddie Bauer played well to non-boomer me because I could find clothes that actually fit.

Re: Closing Grand all the time is stupid.

Horrible idea that causes unnecessary bus reroutes....our major streets aren't meant for parties first. Unnecessary bus reroutes? On a Saturday? Thankfully the city leaders understand how important community events like Irishfest, Beerfest, Pig and Swig, Family Fun Days, Fiesta, and many others are...

Re: Closing Grand all the time is stupid.

It can happen on weekdays, too.

It gets really stupid when Walnut is closed, too. They did that during the Big 12 tournament.

Re: Generic ongoing KCATA thread

I used to tap Verify in front of them until I had one driver get annoyed that he couldn't see the numbers changing. Now I hit Verify before I board and hold up the phone for them to see "Verified" with changing numbers. That has been working without issue for a couple weeks now. I also not...

You can write to the City Planner assigned to the project. They will compile all comments and submit them along with the documents to the CPC.

Re: Historic Old Northeast

They were certainly at the point in their lifecycle where they needed substantial reinvestment. Unfortunately for them and scores of other buildings in the core, society decided to take that capital and build the suburbs.

Re: Historic Old Northeast

If you're ever feeling too happy, go look up photos of the neighborhoods south of Independence Ave, stretching east from Locust. There were blocks and blocks and blocks of great urban form that would be in hot demand today. Instead we have vacant land, wide one-way streets, and shabby light industry...

Here they are in 1962: http://kchistory.org/content/ancient-ap ... d-highland

A quick scan of the corridor shows multiple development sites and other opportunities to creatively build on setbacks if the sidewalks were pushed out.

Re: OFFICIAL - Loews Convention Hotel (formerly Hyatt)

Many (most?) people will not cross a street to get around a sidewalk closure. They'll walk in the street, along the barricade. This is especially true if the closure is mid-block or away from a protected crosswalk. Just watch one of these sites for a while.

Re: Amenities missing from downtown

Planter's carries a modest selection of hardware items. If you've never wandered through Harry J. Epstein you're doing yourself a disservice. Strasser's is a bike ride away. Home Depot is a bus ride away. For groceries, you have Cosentino's and Nature's Own within walking distance. You can supplemen...
