Re: OFFICIAL - ARTerra (21st and Wyandotte)

Took this today. About the same as the last picture posted, but you can see a little more detail if you view it full size.

Re: OFFICIAL: The Legends at Village West

It seems confusing because of the brand, but outside of that the location seems pretty solid. Great visibility, easy access, lack of upscale hotel rooms in that area, sports & events nearby, easy to shuttle people to entertainment, continued development seems likely, plus incentives. I can see why t...

Re: OFFICIAL: The Legends at Village West

I haven't seen mention of STAR bonds but the Edwardsville website states... "This announcement kicked off a series of administrative steps that the Edwardsville City Council undertook in support of the project including a combination of financial incentives." Not really surprising the city would be ...

Re: OFFICIAL: The Legends at Village West

All good questions. It's especially interesting that Hard Rock would build a hotel in a more isolated location, with no attached casino, while Hollywood is paying ~$1.4 million/year to WyCo in order to not build a hotel. I was curious as to whether they were actually paying the penalty, and found an...

Re: OFFICIAL: The Legends at Village West

http://www.lane4group.com/project/village-south/ Obviously this thing is stalled. The site has weeds growing on it now. Looks like it has switched to a Hard Rock Hotel along with a potential "events center". http://wyandottedaily.com/hard-rock-hotel-coming-to-edwardsville/ Here's a little flashback...

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.
