Re: Bike Lanes

I drove down Armour today and already saw 5 cars parked in the bike lanes. Because Kansas City just has to Kansas City. Every time this happens it just reinforces protected bike lanes, bollards and such as the right choice during the planning stage on future changes. Report problem spots, it helps....

Re: Tom Colicchio-involved "Food Hall" to Mission Mall site?

I think folks are underestimating that people all over the metro, including the city, will drive to go to this place (assuming it's worthwhile and strikes a chord). It's not an amenity just for people who live in Mission or the KS burbs. similarly, many places in the city (esp. higher-end restauran...

Re: 3rd & Grand to be redeveloped as TOD

Isn't the current vogue to be disproportionately outraged at every real or imagined slight? Or do I spend too much time online, where basically everyone is their worst possible self most of the time? No, the current vogue is to be disproportionately outraged at people who appear disproportionately ...

Re: Troost developments

I would say the small restaurant spaces are the best part. It's probably the easiest industry to move upwards in without a high school education in a neighborhood in need of good quality jobs for more people period. I would put this feature as something the city should aim for when talking about fut...

They're planning on converting the original Kansas City Club building. I bet it has had way more famous people visit it.

Re: Bike Lanes

I already saw a car in the bike lane yesterday- they were loading something up in their car. The parking spaces aren't fully painted though- maybe with the buffer, cars will do a better job of respecting the bike lanes. I saw a truck parked in the bike lane on Grand with its hazards on last night a...

Ignoring the racist term, they have their own parking lot. It wraps around three sides of the building, there's on street parking on 2nd, 3rd and Grand.

Re: The Future of Crown Center

I don't see hotels going away. I travel a lot and use hotels, airbnb, vrbo etc. It really depends on the city and what I'm trying to do while traveling. One of the biggest problems with airbnbs is logistics. Most business travelers don't book out months in advance and need flexibility when plans ch...

Re: 3rd & Grand to be redeveloped as TOD

The firm is now paying the authority $80,000 per month for the development option.

This will encourage something gets built

That's nearly $1 million per year to do nothing

Didn't someone try to plan a meetup at one point?
