Re: Three Light

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.

Re: Next Mayor 2019

You are absolutely right. Their attitude towards constituents can cause a loss by just a few votes. They often don't realize this. Long-serving politician staffs say that their candidate often keeps winning (even where their party might be outnumbered) because they are excellent at dealing with con...

Re: Amazon searching for second HQ

I don't know if i want that chance anymore. The fact that they would want literally billions of dollars worth of tax incentives to build here give me pause. Jeff Bezos could literally spend 3% of his net worth and build a HQ but he would want the city to foot that bill. I don't want that at all. Ce...

Re: Next Mayor 2019

What a stupid issue to pivot on. So many issues facing this city and your going to change your vote over the name of a street? If they can't get such a minor, "stupid" issue correct.. Then how are you going to be able to trust them to run a city.. To say it more clearly, pulling your support from a...

Re: We need a new airport!!!

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 ...

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..
