Re: OFFICIAL - 909 Walnut

new owners apparently think they can get rents up 18% on average over the next 3 years and are looking to extract money out of the ground level by adding a bar that's open to the public. I really like the idea of opening some of the building up to the public. Wish the P&L building would do the some...

This building is in the big Opportunity Zone. Are we betting on multifamily? Maybe mixes income?
It has big floorplates compared to a lot of the new office space we're building. Since we know how in demand larger floors are I'm betting it stays office space.

Re: We need a new airport!!!

People will forget about the old terminal within 5 minutes of being in the new one.

JUST not having dropoff and pickup intermingled will do it.

Re: AT&T Building Renovation, 8th Street and Locust

One of the ugliest buildings downtown, but says something that AT&T would rather move their downtown employees to Brookside(ish) rather than moving employees downtown. Maybe they had a sweet offer on the building. Not remotely Brooksideish. The office is closer to Prospect than Troost. It's distanc...

The idea that this would get people to move to the area will never happen if the schools don't gain a better reputation.

Re: Broadway

If true, lawsuits can go concurrent to construction so it must have been big enough to delay the project financially.

Do we know if the elevated crossing is an entry into Bartle or just to cross the street? I forget which is the case.

Re: Sidewalk snow removal/enforcement

Sidewalk clearing enforcement continues to lag and city policy has bike lanes as unimportant to clear compared to car lanes, defeating the purpose of having a separate lane. Continue to report issues to the city to 311 and modot. The more tickets that get reported the more the issue will be focused ...

Kauffman Stadium is 37k today. That's not much of a decrease.

190026, 27 and 28 is a trio of bills to issue $2 billion in airport revenue bonds.

Re: Would you like to see the Royals move to a downtown stadium?

To move 10,000 people in 60 minutes takes 20 trains departing every 60 seconds. The existing stadiums and parking takes up 220 acres The entire area between HyVee Arena and 670 (excluding the train tracks) is 110 acres. If parking isn't added we need transit of course. 150 people per train. Let's sa...

Re: Politics

There is so much talk about automated cars recently with Tesla and others working in self driving. I’m surprised that airplanes haven’t also seen movement in this direction. This would eliminate pilot cost and allow automated air traffic control systems. The cost would probably be paid for by the e...

Re: Politics

Air Traffic controller is probably the most powerful to strike because it has a long uptake time to learn the skills, it's highly visible in it's results when it happens and it's already hard to replace people in the position.
