Re: We need a new airport!!!

You are crazy if you think I'm going to leave the gate area and go through security again anyway. Practically nobody would do that nor should they have to. What are you dragging around that makes going through security a problem? People do it all the time, without the slightest inconvenience. It's ...

Re: We need a new airport!!!

Just had another poor experience at KCI. What a fricking embarrassment to the city, the new airport cannot be finished too soon. When leaving KC, we went to the airport early due to bad weather (rain and snow) and unwisely went through security early to the Alaskan Airlines gate. Restrooms and abso...

Re: Are downtown apartment occupancy rapidly trending down?

It’s not even like there was a significant uproar against the incentives. We were on the brink of some transformative developments 14 years in the making. Now Cordish is going big in STL while 3-4 Light, the hotel, etc have been killed or put on the very far back burner. Yep. There's no denying tha...

Re: Are downtown apartment occupancy rapidly trending down?

That article states that One and Two light are only around 80% occupied and some of other new properties are pretty low. This could be a main reason for Three Light taking so long to get off the ground. Three Light hasn't gotten off the ground yet because of the idiocy that the city council pulled ...

Re: We need a new airport!!!

Didn't Burns & McDonnell offer up a nice, new airport solution to the city well before the voter referendum and heavily criticized bidding process began? Did we just burn that bridge for a wishful (promise) lie that we could get an airport sooner, and for cheaper if we went with ______ company? You...

Officiall canceled not because it was a bad idea, didn't get enough incentives.
Nothing worth building HAS to have incentives.

Nothing more than a cheap attempt to make some money. Drury needs far better planning and coordination than that if they want to survive..

The original KCI ended up looking exactly what they went to voters with.
It's not 1972 anymore... Today's companies care about landing big contracts and large profit margins first and foremost.

Almost impossible to tell from these poor initial renderings, but where is the awesome scallop-roof design from the preliminary images? I loved that element, and if we get a generic flat box I'll be very disappointed. I understand perhaps losing the two-story indoor fountain, but first impression i...

Someone was telling me a couple of weeks ago that Duck Boats in particular have a very bad track record. This is not true. At least not for the Branson ones. They have a pretty spotless record. The problem with a duck boat is that it has a canopy and rides low in the water. If it becomes submerged ...
