Re: Next Mayor 2019

While true rapid rail (metro) isn’t possible Sure it is. But you have to think about not necessarily being seamless with downtown. Using places like the Riverfront for a transfer point. I don’t think we will ever be able to afford a metro aka subway. Maybe there is some confusion due to my using th...

Re: Uptown Theatre district improvements

High Schools sometimes have a Jazz Band even today so there's lots of people aware of the genre. For certain people it can be good for a date of a professional meeting where you want live music but don't want to worry about the type of music your date likes. A Jazz club these days is likely to be so...

Its been years, so correct me if I'm wrong, but wasn't this project originally sold as a mixed-use transportation hub? To me, it looks like it has morphed into solely a suburban office building project.
The transit aspect is supposed to be on the NW corner and north side.

Re: Misc Crossroads News

The Cityscene article on the Hampton Inn mentions that a long-term deal was secured to provide parking in the lot to the south of the hotel between 16th and Nara. Does that realistically take that lot out of consideration for near-term development? It depends. It's entirely possible to write a cont...

Re: Three Light

I would like to see the council largely out of the project approval game except for publicly funded ones. Take the politics out of projects. The council should be defining standards for projects. All project the professional city staff reviews the project like today. If a project meets the standards...

Re: Renovations of apartment buildings along Armour Blvd.

This is probably them getting the ball rolling. Once the building is down they can do easier geotechnical surveys on the land.

Re: Three Light

Aka If a large tenant was interested in the project the project would be a go. When a tenant is interested is when they start negotiations. It could take months or years to get from interest to being ready to finalize the design. There's no assurance having a tenant means a project is a go. Look at...

We had a large hotel confirmation, it's under construction right now and it didn't speed up the process.
I think that KCLover meant a large hotel brand confirmation for 4 Light.
There's been no such confirmation. I've seen renderings include brands that never located to the development.

Earlier renderings did not include that fence. Not a fan.
If you trust renderings I have a second Power and Light building to sell you.

Re: Hyperloop between KC and STL

let's just run the streetcar from the riverfront over to st louis with stops at mizzou and maybe the odessa taco john's, who says no? In the spirit that transit MUST be individually convenient to all we will need to pick a random house along the route and detour in order to put a stop right outside...

Is 4 Light postponed indefinitely or is it still happening?
It hasn't been officially announced yet beyond some concept images. So neither?"

Re: Next Mayor 2019

I got a robo call for Canady

It was from an unknown number, they called near 9pm and it took me three times to understand what they were saying. I’m usually fine with accents but they talked really quick.

Not an interest builder.
