Re: KC metro growth and migration stats

Is it likely that Kansas City (and it's metro) will ever grow to become the size of Denver or Seattle? Will KC grow to the population of what Denver or Seattle have currently, or will KC actually catch up to them in real time? Denver metro has 2.8M, and Seattle has 3.8M, while KC is around 2.1M (de...

Re: Northland Population Growth

I should have mentioned that 90% of BV seniors voluntarily sat for the ACT in 2016. You were asking about perception so I'm trying to answer you from the viewpoint of a parent that was totally new to the metro as of ~3 years ago. We heard plenty of good stuff about Park Hill, but nothing really abou...

Re: Northland Population Growth

There's a growing awareness of the quality schools in the Northland. I just wonder at what point does it become metrowide acclaim and the Northland is viewed as a legitimate rival/alternative to Johnson County? It's mostly about results, and around here the best metric is probably outgoing composit...

Re: Rankings, lists, and such

Looks like it made it to the print version of the NY Times. Somebody on reddit was claiming it was definitely paid for by Visit KC and questioned whether the writer ever stepped foot in KC, but I have no real info on that. https://scontent.xx.fbcdn.net/v/t1.0-9/17626338_10155069167904827_77297009790...

Re: City Place (College and US 69)

I live there. The main building is the only one that's occupied and it looks to be safe. If the cold front hadn't just come through and changed the wind direction our apartment would be gone. Feel terrible for the neighbors to the south though.

Re: Do you have or plan to get Google Fiber?

Thanks, that's interesting. 300 would have worked, but unfortunately the next step down from gigabit is 100M and it's $60 so I'll probably just try the gigabit and see how it does. They're changing the name away from "Gigapower". Probably because of the bad press they got in regards to pri...

Re: Do you have or plan to get Google Fiber?

I'm moving into the Cityplace apartments next week in OP which has somewhere around 300 units. The main building has 205, and then there are 4 smaller buildings which will be done shortly. They thought Google Fiber would be ready, but they aren't, so now AT&T is going to get almost all of the re...

Re: OFFICIAL - Hyatt Regency Convention Hotel

Well, that design is poop, but it could be somewhat saved if they used the right materials, glass, and lighting. This has probably been mentioned, but I like what Cooper Carry did with the Hyatt in Baltimore even without a super exciting design. http://dnpt4lt4gxlt9.cloudfront.net/uploads/2015/08/02...

Re: Union Station

Why is it $8 to park at Union Station now? At one point it was $8 and they had a guy taking cash. This last Saturday there was a ticket system and it was $5. We were there at least 4 hours so I'm assuming that was the max. I like the lower cost, but there were huge backups of cars trying to get out...

Re: Two Light - 14th & Grand

For people that aren't in KC, or haven't been down to PnL lately, I'd just like to say that in my opinion the difference is going to be incredible. I can't even imagine if we get to four or five light. I loved seeing One Light go up and it did a lot to freshen up downtown, but it never felt like a h...
