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...

Re: We need a new airport!!!

Looks like precheck in the Southwest area is getting a taste of what a new airport will be like. They moved all TSA precheck traffic for Southwest through the "secret" gate and removed normal entry from that gate. It will make both more efficient at checking people in, but precheck folks ...

Re: KC transit-oriented development push (TOD)

So...much...parking... for River Market. Add this to the city garages around 5th & Main and it paints a problematic picture for our best mixed-use downtown neighborhood.

Re: Main Street MAX

The biggest thing I could have asked for was moving the route to Grand. That was done and it's been 2 wonderful months of speedy travel through downtown. 1.) I concur that the pavement on Main Street south of Grand leave much to be desired. I find myself almost by instinct bracing for certain pothol...

Re: P&L District 10 years later

Re: Misc Crossroads News

In this case, a vacant would more attractive than a building that’s fallen into disrepair. As great as it would be to restore this building (which is beautiful), this represents an opportunity for a taller building with more use cases and more density.
