Re: GO ROYALS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Probably good thing this closed quickly. Delays or lingering may have caused higher bids from outsiders and MLB might have pressured Glass to consider them. I'm a little concerned over the price tag. At a billion dollars, it could put financial pressure on the ownership group and the small market c...

Re: What is the best KCRag/Skyscrapers username of all time?

Any opinions? Immediately I gotta go with KCDervin. That was a monster. What do you guys think ever happened to Devin? I'd be interested to know if he ended up in the arch/engineer/development community. He certainty was passionate about that line of work in what I imagine were his high school years.

If KC loses the bid because poor public transit it would be a huge shame.
I don't get it.. Highways are still open to the public, right? And KC has what.. the largest highway system of any major city in the US? :idea:

Re: Next Mayor 2019

Impressive indeed. It's almost like Lucas acknowledged there was more to KC than just throwing money around downtown. Justus just sounded like a robot repeating the same failures of her mentor Sly James. Speaking of which he was on 710 yesterday and his interview went really bad. It's no wonder the...

Re: Liberty Memorial Musuem and Penn Valley Park

Last restoration was completed in 2006. Restoration? What happened to routine maintenance? Is it a millennial thing to think that you can just build something and walk away with it lasting forever? Maintenance and routine upkeep don't seem to be a thing in any developments these days. It's beyond s...

You do have to wonder how this will be spent. Will city officials reinvest to continue the rebuild? Will they pay down debt? Expand infrastructure/transportation? If the city saw a 10-20% increase in revenue, where would it go?

I'll also add that it took a remarkable amount of diplomacy by Justus to get NewKCI through a fractious council.

Aka If a large tenant was interested in the project the project would be a go. When a tenant is interested is when they start negotiations. It could take months or years to get from interest to being ready to finalize the design. There's no assurance having a tenant means a project is a go. Look at...

At the end of the current leases, TSC will be over 60 years old. Something new will likely need to be built somewhere and needs to be paid for by everyone.
Needs?

No, a complete move and rebuild is a "Want". Period.
