Re: Bluhawk

The only reason this development has the cosmosphere is to get STAR bonds and if they reduce the size of the cosmosphere, that's more STAR bond money that can go to other parts of the project. It's the same exact thing as Prairie Fire. They are only adding these things to get the STAR bonds which n...

Re: Bluhawk

They keep scaling back this thing: https://www.kshb.com/news/local-news/developer-of-op-bluhawk-project-announces-205m-phase-1 An article in today's Star says the Cosmophere will be added "in a later phase." Boy, is that a common theme with these projects. The museum also seems smaller than in earl...

3.3/5 with over 6000 reviews on Glassdoor. Seems pretty average for that kind of company. I figured you’d be chiming in though.

Re: Kansas, Missouri battle over companies

500 new jobs in Kansas for UnitedHealth seems like a little bit of good news.

Re: Two Light - 14th & Grand

Hopefully they still put the angled accent piece on top like the rendering. Doesn't look bad without it, just seems like it would even it out a little bit.

Re: Union Station

They have two alternate paths to the bridge they open up depending on if the best alt is blocked off. Have you been looking for this path? They usually put up signs. They don't do great with the signs, but yes, there are other ways of getting to the bridge. I usually just walk through the Amtrak si...

Re: NHL OR NBA, let the message board decide!!

What's my point? It's time that suburbanites in KC learn that "driving all the way downtown" and "Is it safe there?" need to be removed from their psyche. Get out of your cocoon and live a little. It's still crazy to me that people have the viewpoint that people who live in the suburbs are by natur...

You actually mean that, did you? The buildings in the background of a recorded video are...
